Okay, I heard the game was good but that really understated how well done it is. Firstly, it runs very smoothly on my PC (AMD FX 8350 and a AMD 7970) and looks great. Secondly, no extended tutorial and it is handled extremely well. Thirdly, the Nemesis system (seriously good.) Lastly, the combat is good and there are a variety of enemies. Dispatching enemies is left up to the player without trying to shoehorn a specific approach.
The death mechanic is nice, each time you die one of the captains you are looking for gets stronger.
I can tell already that it was definitely worth the 54.99$ CAD.
