Yes, yes, and you will continue to think that until about the 90% line and then you'll think, this has been great fun.

There's no discounting the fact that the endgame of AA is not all that good.

People overreact about the final boss, though. Yeah, it sucks, but it's just one fight. And it's not like the other bosses are any better. 90% of the game is fantastic.

That last boss fight was not so great, yeah, but I think it's mitigated by A) the Scarecrow fights earlier in the game, and B) epic challenges.

I did think the Ivy fight was a little DMC4, but oddly enough I think AA does Man vs Plant better.

Ivy and Joker are both highly disappointing fights. Scarecrow and Killer Croc, on the other hand, are incredible with the Killer Croc section probably being my favourite in the entire game.

Suskie, I don't think people over-reacted to the final fight. The developers designed their game to be one long build up to that moment. That moment needed to deliver and it didn't.
