Definitely need to try this. Getting stellar reviews
Yup, it is. That Edge review must have knocked down quite a few points on Metacritic.
it's fun. and I like how everything is revolving around her mental state - it's an interesting way to do a game and it works.
Of course it's getting good reviews, it's about mental illness. If it wasn't, it would be a walking sim with average combat, average puzzles and great graphics. Mental illness gets you extra points everywhere lately.
You just described pretty much 90% of AAA titles.
Loved this game. To me it would've been a masterpiece, but I wasn't a fan of the puzzles.
what about the puzzles did you not like? I thought they made me think without being too hard and slowing the game pace down.
I loved the game. But some puzzles were just complicated as fuck (the ones with the symbols). I remember getting stuck at one point during the fire area, and you have to climb that giant ladder to the tower, and it took fucking forever for me to find it. I was literally looking for about 35 minutes when I decided to look at a guide. From there I thought, "There's no way in hell I ever would have thought that's where the symbol would be" - I find that they slow the pace down, a lot of the time, a LOT.
This game is an amazing experience. Some repetetive puzzle parts. But story, audio and visuals are truly outstanding.
I wish the FOV was slightly more outward... I feel like the camera is too close to her.
They chose to do that to make not only the view limited for the player but also to make the enemies look more hulking close up.
