I was a bit sceptical about buying this until I knew suda 51 was involved then I looked it up on YouTube and have loved this since I have platinumed this game and still can't get enough :P the graphics look a bit dated but the gameplay is fun and the banter between the main character and his companion/weapon is always interesting and fun I loved the music on this game and hope for a dlc or sequel but I highly doubt either are on the cards as this game hasn't received the attention it deserves so say no to cod and get this
The production qualities in this game are all excellent, from the voice acting and Akira Yamaoka's soundtrack, to the art and design of the underworld. Unfortunately, that's the 'good' column finished. The game itself is a standard over-the-shoulder shooter, similar to Resident Evil 4, complete with merchants and fake-leveling (level up your health and damage, only for even the standard enemies to do the same). The puzzles are offensively simple, while many boss fights give zero hints of what you're supposed to do. Most annoyingly of all are the cheap deaths. At certain points you're almost expected to die and sit through a loading screen to try again; other times an enemy will force a quick-time event while you're pressing other buttons, causing you to fail and die. I liked the darkness concept and the side-scrolling sections, but the game just isn't fun and is a chore to play. I got the end and gave up, although since there's no story to care about finishing and no variety in the gameplay, I'm sure I'm not missing out, and I'm only glad I rented this instead of spending money on it.
This game doesnt deserve such poor online reviews. Graphics arent that great but it has great playability. Game is like Resident Evil 4 in hell on steriods. Played it on normal and enemy AI is good. Has good level design and havnt found any of the technical problems that online revies have found. If you like old school videogaming and dont mind poor graphics you should try this game. I am tired of online reviews giving bad reviews to games that have poor story and characters when this is totally irrelevant to video gaming. If you fancy other great games that have had bad reviews try Turok, Wofenstein. Games I like Resident Evil 4, Dead Space, Just Cause 2, Prototype, COD, Vanquish, Crysis, Far Cry PC, Half Life 2, Infamous, Saints Row 2, Uncharted. Games I think have poor playability Dead Island, Binary Domain, Resistance, Mass Effect(combat sections), Red Dead Redemption, Bioshock, Goldeneye Reloaded.
