Christ, these movement animations look bad.
I respectfully disagree on the backstab mechanic; I'm glad it is making a return to a more traditional look and feel as from the first game.
Personally I don't care what the game looks like, it could look like it belongs on an Atari 2600 for all I care. It's all about the enjoyable gameplay for me and if this is anything like DS1 then it will have it truck loads.I agree. That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the footage, along with the graphics just looking dated in general.
Maybe the video is just poor quality, but that doesn't even look like a PS4 game to me. If I didn't know better, I'd have guessed it was a last gen game.
