Those who have followed the terrible release of Inner Chains know that great graphics and art style aren't enough to make a good title. Despite a pretty solid atmosphere, this first game by Telepaths' Tree is plagued with problems, one of them being its very poor optimization. GTX 1080 or not, expect some noticeable frame drops every time too many effects kick in, which we could not even try to reduce by lowering the game's resolution as it would not propose anything below 2048*1536 on our 4K TV. Character and camera movement is also very clunky, not to mention how slow and uninteresting gameplay is. Even though we like the visual style a lot, we couldn't play more than an hour. A real shame.

"GTX 1080"

You keep using those words. I do not think they mean what you think they mean.

A single GTX 1080 is very low-end. If you want high-end, you need 4 GTX Titan 1080 Ti or at the bare minimum, 4 GTX Titan X (Pascal). It's not the game, it's your PC. You need to upgrade hard, man. :P

This game and Agony are kinda hard to distinguish.

    KORNdog and down - that was a review for alien resurrection in 2000. i found it kind of funny that gamespot complained about that, given that's how all games work now on consoles. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog The game's control setup is its most terrifying element. The left analog stick moves you forward, back, and strafes right and left, while the right analog stick turns you and can be used to look up (5 Hours ago)

    asdfg @alimokrane: like you generalized that KORNdog must read reviews? (1 Day ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @asdfg: I wasnt talking about ALL gamers, I was talking to KORNdog. Way to go generalizing. No wonder the world is doing so well with everyone generalizing! (1 Day ago)
