Hahaha. I caved and bought this, and I'm having a great time. I was so convinced this would be a dud to me and it isn't, at least so far. The movement feels very good, and even the combat is kind of interesting. The key to the latter seems to be that you can cancel your dodge animation with a boost, which lets you fight aggressively. The drop dash being in this was an inspired choice. It's fun to go careening down hills with this thing. And of course the atmosphere and music are like... really good. There's definitely jank in here to be sure, but it's not a dealbreaker. I can't even say I'm disliking the cyberspace levels either... the digital aesthetic and music is selling them pretty damn hard. That introductory one in particular left quite an impression with its abrupt start, weird digital aesthetics, and freaky music. God damn I'm eating some crow and it's finger-licking good. Edit: For anybody tinkering with the movement sliders, consider keeping the "starting speed" option high... but not at max. I just maxed everything out on a suggestion, but this option benefits from some restraint. Instantly zipping about from a standstill is too awkward for me and I need at least some buildup. 85 feels pretty good.
