I enjoyed it. There weren't tons of cut scenes and the game could be paused anywhere. I did everything except wipe out all the hoards since that requires more effort (repeatedly finding crafting supplies) than I cared to put forth.
I got it on sale several months back and have only got a couple hours into it before getting distracted by other games, so it never really grabbed me as much as I hoped. I'm a sucker for most PS exclusives and pre-ordered this game too, then cancelled it after seeing all the mediocre reviews. I need to revisit it and give it a better chance, which I prolly won't do until I get a PS5 so I can play some other exclusives I missed on PS4. It was the same deal with Spiderman for me too.
I imagine playing it on PS Now would be fine providing your ISP is up for it and you have minimal latency (preferably hard wired on PC), though I'd say there has to be a slight loss in resolution/clarity over playing it on local hardware regardless. But as always everyone's tolerance on that is different and if you're even considering it, will probably be fine with it, as I've seen most people who've played on PS Now be pretty happy with it. Just know that a DS4 controller is a requirement for all PS Now games, so no KB&M support that I know of.
Looks like it's going to be supporting cross-platform saves, "up to" 60fps, and dynamic 4K on the PS5. I never played this, but will almost certainly give it a go since it's part of the PS+ collection.
