Our videos of The Park

When we first heard about The Park, we had pretty high expectations concerning the experience the game would provide. As a mother looking for her lost son in a creepy amusement park, we believed we'd be bound to be completely captivated by the story. We never thought the game would have much to offer in terms of gameplay mechanics, as it was obviously going to be what people like to call a walking simulator. So that's not what disappointed us, the problem is that we completed the game in barely an hour (and not two or three as the developers claimed), and we didn't even rush. Considering its price, we wouldn't recommend it despite its unsettling story. It is never truly scary but the atmosphere and the subject itself will make you feel uneasy. Aside from the debate around what is a game and what is not, it's sadly hard to understand the lack of content and length.

Yeah...this is not really a thrilling game. My problem with this game is, that it has too long and boring events, the main character is talking and talking and....just not the way horror should be done, I think.

My problem with this game, apart from having finished it in 45 minutes is that it is not a game at all, you do nothing but walk most of the time; the only good thing about it is atmosphere which doesnt warrant its price for that length whatsoever. Games like The Vanishing of Ethan Carter are great but this is not the case.

Because R1 appears in the gameplay 1 ??
The Park will also come to Ps4 ??

Wow, what a let down. The atmosphere looks awesome and the gameplay videos look like the game is setting up for a great horror game, but only an hour?! That means the 10 minutes of gameplay I just saw was 1/6 of the entire game.

This is a bigger ripoff than the movie theaters. I'd pay $5 for this no-replay-value game. No more.

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (22 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (23 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (1 Day ago)
