Slender: The Arrival was released on PC a while back but we hadn't had the chance to play it very much until now. This independent horror game is the sequel to the famous Slender: The Eight Pages and it still proposes a very efficient atmosphere, but it unfortunately also suffers from a few performance issues. Because the shadow effects are so demanding and the number of trees (and the shadows they cast) is so important, framerate cannot hold a steady 60 frames per second, even on good hardware like ours. There are even instances where it dropped to 30 fps on our i5 4670K (4.0 GHz, 8Go RAM, GTX 670). Pop-up can also get in the way of what is, despite all this, quite a scary experience overall.
[url] there's a rundown on the reviews so far (1 minute ago)
Which is good. That's how sequels should be evaluated in my opinion. (2 minutes ago)
Things I would identify as typically "Resident Evil", but I think most are reviewing this game on its own merits and not based on how it makes them feel about the franchise. (2 minutes ago)
i'm just happy there is no more zombie suplexing and rock punching anywhere to be seen. lol (3 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: who said it looks like RE1? i said reviews are saying it's capturing the same vibe. ie. horror. survival. slower paced. a singular location. constant sense of dread, item management etc (6 minutes ago)
If only it had the same quality live action video :D (9 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Oh that's crystal clear. I do wonder if it means it will stay first person from here on out. It probably will so it will work for VR. (9 minutes ago)
