Completely agree. I mean I grew to like Noir-Liz (especially her new character design, I'm absolutely love to do a cos-play of it in the future since I have the perfect place in mind) but the transition to that character from her personality in Infinite didn't feel very realistic. I mean I get she's suffered and hardened a lot by the end of the base game but I don't imagine her ever becoming that ruthless or cold. Wish the writing overall in BaS had been a bit sharper (it seemed rushed and kinda done at the last-minute to me in parts), the whole Daisy reveal in part 2 felt very contrived and cliche in my opinion (since Booker described Daisy well with the line "The only difference between Fitzroy and Comstock is the spelling"). Besides that it wasn't too bad. Got so excited by the premise of a noir-themed DLC set in the glory days of Rapture with a enigmatic new-looking Elizabeth but in the end I felt a tad let-down.
Again I never saw Liz as a classic femme fatale (outside appearance) and didn't like how they portrayed her in episode one (To be fair she wasn't as bad in episode two, still cry at that ending
). I think you summed up how she should have been portrayed as perfectly "Still mature, still strong but more herself") I preferred Old Elizabeth much more. Also agree on the Little Sister idea (nice to see them more as a victim of circumstance, like Liz), I just wished they fleshed out Sally's and this universe's Booker/Comstock's personality more. Though I was mostly indifferent to the blood symbolism (kinda interesting at first but I can understand how you saw that they over-emphasized it). Besides that, good to see others feel the same way.
