LOW That last boss fight somehow manages to be a worse version of Dead Rising‘s worst boss fight.

WTF Chuck, you’ve been framed for mass murder, so stop telling people who you are. And lose the jacket.

HIGH Finding out why there were only six Deadly Psychopaths.

LOW The wonky driving physics that makes cars flip at the drop of a hat.
