GSY Video PC PS4 Xbox One

Just like we feared after playing the game's alpha a few months back and discovering the final version last week, Generation Zero does not live up to its full potential for different reasons, which explains why the reviews have been so harsh. To begin with, the abusive cloning of the houses you regularly search adds to the overall feeling that you're always doing the same thing. Combat can be fun when playing with friends, with machines arriving as back up when you attack one of them, but there isn't enough variety so it gets old pretty quickly. Story is limited to finding a few documents or audio logs and it's clearly not engaging enough to keep moving forward, so in the end you're left with an atmospheric title that lacks the content you'd expect to make it really worth your money. Bugs and glitches are also a problem on top of that, so we advise you to wait and see what Avalanche will do in the new few weeks to improve their game before you consider jumping in. We had fun, but it's objectively not enough to justify a purchase now.

Game plays like some low budget indie game that just entered EA, such a disappointment... Everything feels so clunky, the movement/jumping, you char can't get over basic obstacles.. And shooting lol feels like we went in time like 15 years ago...

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (4 Days ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (5 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (5 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (5 Days ago)
