Even though we have only seen 30% of the whole game, we have been playing for more than 15 hours (possibly more than 20 even) and we have been enjoying every minute of it. The game is inspired by many other titles, like Far Cry, Uncharted, Tomb Raider, Assassin's Creed, The Witcher 3 to name but a few, but everything it does, it does well. We have a review in progress on the French side if you are interested, the following videos aiming at illustrating the things we mention. Today's extracts are short and contain no spoilers whatsoever as they were recorded in the open world and show no cutscenes. Update: Colors are indeed too saturated in the PS4 Pro videos, due to a bug of the console when we switched to our capture set-up.
Note: The PS4 Pro Combat video was recorded at 1080p while the game was played at 4K. Recording lossless 4k has proven very unstable, so we only used the bits that were ok. Needless to say that it was too difficult to do so in a combat scene.
I liked the first one. The cover system works okay in elimination deathmatch. I'm not a fan of sticky cover as a rule though. Especially now that many games have done contextual auto cover that works. (30 minutes ago)
I guess so? It's been a long time since I played one to be fair (39 minutes ago)
Yea.. that's what Gears of War is. (1 Hour ago)
also GOW looked interesting from some of the competitive matches I saw. But lots of weird sticky cover play (1 Hour ago)
just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (2 Hours ago)
New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (3 Hours ago)
The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (3 Hours ago)
