I ended up liking the game when i resumed it after a short break (at first i thought it was the worst game ever and shelved it) and got used to the controls. Liked the atmospehere of the game and that combining system. I have to admit that i probably would not have had such a good time with the game if i didn't look up things from guides.
I also had extremely frustrating time with the first driving sequence wish i had known about the cockpit view. It was so much easier when i did it for the achievement with that.
