9.25 from Game Informer?! :O

Now, I really liked the game's presentation and everything but I thought it's gonna be one of those games that are so bad, that they're good... hmmm... I really need to try it out.

Well, I've read a review where it gets an 8, so probably it will get mixed reviews. The biggest 'flaw' seems to be the linear nature and stupid puzzle aspects (look for key to open door kinda puzzles).
A demo would be nice to have a feel of the controls as it's in essence a Resident Evil shooter in hell, but this time you can move while shooting.

Seriously? who thought it would be an open world game? Linear nature is key here. As it was with RE .

Nice to see people changing their mind because of some...review grade. So predictable.

You should always try a game before unleashing hate towards it.

No new game+, no alternate outfits, no replay value, I will buy but those things pretty much put this in the $20 category.

Sorry.

You are correct when you say that gamers should make their own mind up about games. But if a game costs 60 euro's (Belgium), I'm not going to buy it just to try it. So reviews can be helpfull in deciding if a game is worth the money. If a game has a metacritic score of 60 or less, I'm not going to buy it, because the chances are very high that the game is bad. Unless you have the money to buy every game, you're right to buy them all and give them a try. Most people however don't.

Secondly, the review I'm talking about didn't expect it to be open world and that is not what I said in the first place. The review points out this:

"Hunting keys along linear paths dulls the novelty of exploring hell; starts off slow."

    Sdarts @rayy: Yes, Larian Studios is great. And D:OS2 had a year of Early Access with constant updates based on the community's feedback. Also, something I forgot to mention, there's already many mods for it (9 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, HDR is really awesome. But like with VR, it can't be shown in images or videos, you need to check it in person. Try all the games you can, it might give them a "second wind" for you. (11 minutes ago)
