Yup. The constant back and forth to the same areas is a valid complaint. The poor map design makes it even more frustrating until you visit certain areas enough. The game could have used more polish.Only four hours in so far but the game feels like a mess compared to the last one. Hard to use map, menus are difficult to understand, not enough flow and the beginning is rather dull. Performance is okay, and the game can look decent in some areas but it still needs improvements. Got some bad stutters once and a CTD but otherwise it worked okay. It can use some optimization. Animations are horrible for characters though. It looks even worse than Human Revolution, which wasn't exactly stunning either. They're enough to standout. Assets are rather low in detail to.
With luck the mess of a game will become a bit more straight forward as time goes on, and the story picks up. So far it seems like a lot of walking back and fourth and I fear it has fallen to the cliche "open ended" game design.
So far I've clocked over 82 hours and that includes the current DLC. Waiting for the next DLC to drop.
