This pretty much sums up my thoughts too
but I'm going to play through it cause I paid for it, albeit only $7, and to see the story. Very Call of Duty movie like formula only out West this game is.
Concentration system seems odd in that there is no way to control when it's used; seems just as I've racked up enough kills to fill it, there is no one left to kill.
Cover system I don't really care for, it auto-controls my view and movement too much. Just give me a key to press to enter and exit cover, k thanks.
Overall, I preferred the first CoJ better, this one is too automated or simplified with obvious console roots.
