Granted I haven't played it yet but from a quick Google, it doesn't look like Five Nights at Freddy's (which is what people are saying this is like) doesn't seem to have micro-transactions so I'm not expecting this one to.
It's still an inferior follow up no matter what damage control you do for it.
Let me put it in perspective. Say we had a great movie that did fantastic, right? Had all the right plot points, characters, and special effects, etc. Now imagine the sequel was a 2 minute short clip that was done in a much more inferior style.
Also...they will be doing an MMO shooter. With that comes microtransactions guaranteed. Same goes for most mobile games.
How do you think the response would be?
