I couldn't have asked for a better survival horror game than this! I find the latest games have been less fun, maybe too serious, not since Bioshock and Resident Evil 4 have i enjoyed gaming as much as this. Granted survival horror is my type of thing, but i consider this as good as both of those and thats saying a lot.
The gameplay is great, i didn't find it repetitive or easy, the tools (weapons) are solid, and i particularly enjoyed stasis, kineses and the zero-gravity zones are very well done. There's a lot of "jump" moments and times where you don't want to enter a room. Not since the older residents evils have i had that problem, that was when i was 12ish, now i'm 20 and it takes a lot more to do that! The monsters are great, much more variety than i was expecting, and the bosses are big. But the best thing about it is the story. It really is film worthy. And i actually enjoyed Downfall, the poorly animated movie released just before the game, about events before the crew of Kellion reach USG Ishimura, because of the story.
I really look forward to the next game/s to follow on, as there are questions to be answered, especially after the last moment of the game.
