What happens when you take a game that's reliant on both stat-crunching and a meticulous care taken to ensure your character is best suited down a particular path?

You end up with said character specialising in a very specific type of death-dealing - something that completely falls apart when the boss battles of said game were outsourced to another studio, and come back as needing to be played a certain way to progress.

This has become known as the one thing that dragged Human Revolution right down after an incredible introduction, fantastic world aesthetic and brilliant design in general - it was a huge oversight, and when you got to bosses that mowed you down in a mist of bullets because you'd specialised in sneaking around, it just felt stupidly broken.
