As you already know if you've taken the time to read our full review, watch our commented gameplay video, or even just listen to the mp3 version to avoid any spoilers, SOMA is really one of our most favorite games in the past few months. It's a very atmospheric title whose main theme is just excellent and it is undeniably Frictional Games' best game to date. We just got our hands on the PS4 version so here are a few videos for you to see how it runs. Aside from some quite surprising slowdowns in the very beginning, the game seems to run at 30 fps most of the time, even in the underwater sections which are a bit more open than the corridors of Pathos II. What is a bit annoying though are the freezes you get every time you reach a checkpoint, giving you the impression that you're playing Half Life² and waiting for the next area to load.
You should definitely skip it if you intend to skip the single player.. but you shouldn't skip it because of the multiplayer (15 minutes ago)
@Tinks: MP is indeed ass. and the snap map feature turned out to be crap from the dozen or so maps i played. (17 minutes ago)
It's a meaty campaign too. And you'll probably like the MP anyway. It's a fun throw-away experience. (1 Hour ago)
@Tinks: The single player campaign is the best raw action FPS gameplay since Painkiller though, it's totally worth it. (2 Hours ago)
if the MP ain't good I ain't buyin it (2 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: the headset itself is selling for almost $600. It's unusually expensive considering there's proper distribution of sony products here in retail. (6 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: it seems cheaper to break things down and buy older stick. Like the sqare design camera can be had for less than the new one. And old move controllers less than the ore packaged VR ones. (6 Hours ago)
