John Wick is a man of focus, commitment, and sheer will! John Wick Hex has been out for almost a year now, and now Bithell Games has decided to bring the long-living legend of John Wick to PlayStation 4 as well. Over the year that followed the game’s release on the PCs with its nonexistent hype, it felt as if the game never existed. Well, we’ve found no reason for it to be so, and the game is not particularly what you should be expecting.
Perhaps, the developers were unaware of the fact that the legend of John Wick is known for its three-movie saga. With all the power that the developers had at hand when they announced the game under the name of John Wick, they let it all go to waste when they decided to base the entire game on a comic series. The first glance at the game tells you that the developers may have saved a buck or two while designing the game and its characters. All the characters are out of comic books. This is not even the worst part, all of the cutscenes are from comic books as well. It seems like having a John Wick game with those blood pumping and action-filled cutscenes from the movies that could add life to the game, will remain yet another dream.
Well there you have it, the game is developed to be played with a different mindset, but as a hardcore John Wick fan, I feel that the game would have made a more remarkable impact as an open-world action game. I was really looking forward to burning some rubber on John Wick’s iconic 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1. Anyways, it is what it is!
