"To have the courage to reboot the franchise…
Ok, so now taking a 10+ years franchise and transforming it into an average generic shooter takes "courage... interesting.
courage would have been to make a real sequel to the game, not makes a bland fps like everybody else and their dog and slap on it the name of a beloved franchise and hoped it would sale more.
Honestly I have to say that I am kind of happy that, for once, such a lowly marketing scheme didn't work as well as they hopped it would.
The main issue was that it was a generic, forgettable shooter in a market already saturated with generic, forgettable shooters.
Exactly, based on reviews and comments of peoples who actually played it, the biggest flaw of the game was not even that it had nothing to do with the originals, but more that, even on it's own right, it was nothing more than a bland and easily forgotten shooter.
