lol are you serious. the game is playable. love the gameplay of this game. It's like the dark souls of shooters. It's unforgiving if you go through a situation not thinking it over first (especially in higher difficulties). The gunplay from U2 to U3 was actually a downgrade or no improvement at all. Still boggles me how/why nd did it.
I really hope ND does U4 w/ a majority of tlou mechanics (gunplay, crafting, cover system etc) implemented in it. U3 was so underwhelming to end a great franchise with it.
I actually finished the game 3 times, I don't think it is tedious nor boring, but maybe it could use some more freedom in a sequel or a spin-off.

As beautiful as the game looks I find the gameplay tedious and boring.
I've always loved Naughty Dog games. I wish that they'd made the game play as wonderful as the graphics. Maybe they should've saved the release from PS4 and worked on making the game playable?
