I keep hearing good things about this, guess i am going to pick it up at some point



Around the Network

The game looks great but the animations are very...stiff, very reminiscent of Life is strange, specially the facial animations. Very unfortunate. (only talking about the animation)



Gameplay from video reviews looks boring and quite simple.
It isn't?

Eh, it's simplistic, but works well and is entertaining.

Sure,  i can accept that.  Though it's not something i feel confident buying atm



I'm happy you did that thread i assume i would have tried to make my first one if you didn't . Not that i've bought the game, the backlog is huge, but since it's great and well reviewed and i always read here complaints about games qualities, stories, etc....

It would have been a shame on a videogame website ! I will buy it before the end of the year for sure, especially for small studios which need some support.



The character artist in me has a real appreciation for the fact that Asobo focused on the eyes!

I am concerned about the gameplay aspects of it, I was led to believe in its promotion that it would blend a walking sim level narrative with good gameplay in the same way the last of us/GoW but a more down to earth tale did it but what I see from reviewers is it relies mainly on stealth and simple repetitive puzzles like Senuas sacrifice. I barely got through Hellblade because of the cheap, basic switch flip and symbol matching puzzles but the gameplay was super enjoyable and got me to the end. I am worriee if I buy this that it won't manage that and if I find the story to be too forced and dramatic like HB, I'm wasting money when there is no other hook. I don't ecpect the girl to be a sword master but traps, dynamic environmental weapons, good set pieces, some offensive skills and a fun game play loop of perhaps looting etc Add in actually complex puzzles would be a must also. I'm really conflicted and confused about gameplay beyond stealth and I know watching a lets play will ruin what is apparently a short story.

I'll buy it on sale for sure, just don't think I can gamble on it, I woildn't be able to sit through Senuas sacrifice without that sword play bevause the story was so melodramatic it was embarrassing and the puzzles were seemingly made for a child with no care to respect the intelligence of the player.

It's simplistic enough to get through, yet with a mature enough theme to be enjoyable. Take it as that, rather than expecting it to be something it didn't really ever promise to be. Or, just wait for a sale.

Yeah, waiting for a sale. Just terrible marketing I guess. 

Nope. Based on word of mouth and reviews, many people got exactly what they thought they would. I think you just wanted something else. It never really promised to be God of War/The Last Of Us (funnily enough, it does things neither of those do), but offers a story that will stand the test of time (much like those will).
