I honestly don't remember much about it nowdays, just the feelings it left on me.

I remember parts filled with enemies in the middle of the game (in some empty buildings you had to clear hordes to open some door if I remember correctly) when they just came from everywhere and I would get stuck in door sides while trying to enter a room for cover and run out of ammo and be powerless (I runned out of ammo a lot)

A part where the big guy chase you with a chainsaw in the early game that you have to open a chained gate near a barn I guess, while running away from it and if it touches you its instakill and you have to try all again, including all the stealthing you did before, bumping into corner and with horrible camera angles.

How movements were really bad basically everywhere you needed precision.

Also not a gameplay fault but those shadows are beyond broken too, it was better to just have no shadows instead, it makes everything so ugly xP.

I can't be more specific on details as again I don't remember much (gladly) from it.

I remember liking a lot the aesthetics and creativity in some scenes too, tho.

I feel like if a better developer was behind the game it could have been pretty good.

Fair enough. With the chainsaw guy I guess my RE4 training kicked in and I just picked away at his health while keeping my distance until he keeled over. Also lured him into the spike trap in one of the houses nearby.

With mobs I found they couldn't catch me as long as I kept moving without letting my stamina run out, while using grenades and explosive crossbow bolts to clear out several at a time.

Again though I played on easy so maybe it's just better balanced there?

Or maybe its balanced in your favor ... because its on easy. 

This is sitting on my to get list I'm hoping they port it. I actually played a tad bit of second where I think they added stealth kills.

Easy mode is supposed to be balanced to be less stressful, which is how I prefer to play almost all games. All that matters at the end of the day is that I had a good experience.

And there were stealth kills in the first game.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

It sure was lucky I liked the protagonist so much.

It's funny, while I really like the game itself, the protag is actually one of the weaker aspects for me. I mean he wasn't annoying or bad, I just found him kinda dry and unremarkable.

Hey curl-6, I read this thread and have always thought of you as a level headed VGC user (and a fellow Aussie) so I bought the game on Steam and will play it when I get through some current projects. I'll let you know what I think...

P.S. Currently playing Golf Story & Doom 2 on Switch, Sunset Overdrive on PC....

Cheers man, hope you enjoy it! :)

I was talking about Valkyria Chronicles there xP
