D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die Review | The Game Scouts

Tin Salamunic: Hidetaka Suehiro (aka Swery65) is a brilliant madman. His works are impossible to put into words and simply need to be experienced. Swery65’s rebellious approach to video game making is both shocking and refreshing. He doesn’t care about industry standards nor is he concerned with player expectations. Just when you think you’ve seen the most bizarre and twisted concoction the gaming world has to offer, Swery65 manages defy everyone’s assumptions. D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die is the equivalent to being dropped out of an airplane and eating ice cream, while having your skull bashed by winged monkeys. The experience is inexplicable. D4 is like an ugly distorted painting that you can’t take your eyes off. Much like Swery65’s incomprehensible masterpiece/disaster Deadly Premonition, D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die is disturbing, uncomfortable…yet incredibly immersive and unique. Anyone interested in a genuinely one-of-a-kind journey through a madman’s creative mind should seriously consider picking up D4.

Good to see this game getting good reviews. These are the types of variety I like to see on Xbox One.

Had to buy this. Vote with your dollars. It's for the support for exclusives and japanese games on consoles.

That's funny. I'm wondering how many people would consider D4's review scores as "good", who would also have said that a metacritic score of 77 was awful for a game like Destiny.

Off topic? Not really. Think about your perception of the same score for two different games. They're different games sure, but people heap praise on one and rush to set the other on fire. Yet, they both have the same Metacritic average.

Sure, there are a lot of arguments why it isn't the same thing, or why one is better or worse than the other, or how they can't be compared, but just set that aside for a second and consider the perception of the same score being seen in two completely different ways. That's all I'm asking; just think about it.

Considering the fact that it's an ongoing investment for Swery...It could very well be just because it'll be an episodic adventure.
