I'm torn on this one. On one hand it sounds good but on the other I'm an RPG guy and it REALLY ticks me off that they cut out most of the RPG stuff. The Ars Technica review I read earlier today was filled with statement after statement that absolutely horrified me and it was a positive review. Though I certainly won't miss the Mako at all, the cutting out of lots of exploration in general I consider a huge negative.
But it's too late for me to cancel my CE from Amazon so I have some time to decide. I guess I could always sell the CE when it comes then buy a used copy in a few weeks. The luster is off for me now so I don't mind waiting.
Anybody playing now who thought they would hate the stripped down RPG elements but found it still to be acceptable?
