GSY Video PC PS4 Xbox One

Someday You'll Return disappointed us a few weeks back and sadly Those Who Remain is not going to do any better. Developed by Camel 101, the game is not a looker, but its smart use of lighting effects makes it quite atmospheric at times. The problem is it's not enough to make up for the sluggish controls, the dated visuals and some of the game design choices. Performance is also very weird as the game never feels smooth despite what the FPS counters seems to indicate. We wish we could tell you its story is engaging enough but it simply didn't work for us. Gameplay wise it feels very awkward to walk around and to interact with the environment and the button prompts do not always indicate the good button you need to press (for example, game tells you you must press LT to run when it is indeed LB). Check out the first 20 minutes of the adventure and let us know what you think. We'd be curious to hear your opinion on the different key locations. We lost so much time looking for 2 of them as the place where they could be found made no sense whatsoever from our perspective. It partly explains why we felt so frustrated when playing the game.

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (3 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 (3 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 (3 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (4 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 (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (4 Days ago)
