Yeah, Gameblog (french website) gave it a 40, because "it's boring" and "slow because you can't run". But it's one of the worst kind of clickbait sites I've ever seen, so nothing unusual. 

There will always be a few clickbait reviews. It's just the nature of the internet and generating traffic.


Nah, this site is nothing but clickbait, it's like a people magazine about video games. They can take an interview made by another site and cut it in 10 different news in 10 days, always frontpage, with 10 different quotes (and nothing else in the news). Or make a review with the title "The PS4 completely fails" about an Xbox One and PS4 multiplatform game. And their main "line" of news is "Xbox France said something to Playstation France on Twitter today", and vice versa, really frequently and in frontpage, of course. 

 

Right now, you have on the frontpage things like "The 2 games that Tetsuya Nomura is waiting for are not Japanese games", and "Teens hack a mall to buy videogames". I'm an occasional user of their site, but even their userbase complain everyday about their clickbait politics, useless articles and lack of journalistic material. So don't care too much about their reviews ;)

Yeah, you do walk a bit slow, there is no running, but that really is not the point of the game.

A) Everything is very close by, it's not like you need to traverse for minutes to the next "objective" (Ethan Carter had sprinting, but also miles of woods and roads with nothing in them)

B) The game is supposed to be peaceful, tranquil - to allow you to explore the sights and sounds, to look at details and slowly piece the puzzle together. There is no sense of urgency that you need to run everywhere, because - Everybody's already gone to the Rapture...

C) I do wish I could take one of the bicycles and ride it around the village, though...

There is running in the game. Just hold down the R2 and eventually you will run, or at least move faster. It might be L2 but try R2 first.



 

The PS5 Exists. 


everyone else is giveing it a 7/10 or a 9/10..... some French guy gives it a 4/10.

So I was not going crazy, it really does speed up?

I thought it was just my mind playing tricks after reading several complaints about no running.   (it's R2)

They should have made it clear to the reviewers that R2 is used to run. Would have been 85+ on meta.



Games like these or you love or you hate it but reviewers dont even know the game have a speed up button and point this as a negative is not what we expect from reviewers...

Same reason Sonic Lost World was rated down for being slow.



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

The game doesn´t tell you that you can run pressing R3, never. Not a critics fault.

Also the real complainst are about the total lack of gameplay, the vanishing of ethan carter is a similar walking simulator but you have to rebuild every story like a puzzle, there is a sense of interactivity and you feel involved on it, however on this game you are only a camera man hearing stories from other people, is more similar to Dear Esther actually (is made by the same people after all), seems rather boring.



Reviews make it seem like a decent PS+ game to download. Guess I will wait for that. Shame, there was a lot of hype for this one (for a downloadable title).
