I don't recall anyone really advocating the game last year... I was looking forward to it, until I started playing - a highly repetitive Resi Evil wannabe-style game, which could have been developed in many more ways. I honesly cannot recommend it as a game. The last Suda title I had played was Killer7, so that probably didn't help my personal critical reception.
But over-linearity is a criticism that can be levelled at 99% of Eastern-designed titles. At least LC wears its score-attack gameplay proudly.
