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."

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (6 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (7 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (2 Hours ago)
