Nope... this title belongs for Amnesia: The Dark Descent raised the bar and showed everyone what could be done on a relatively low budget Survival Horror, but with lots of care and attention to detail for old scholl Survival horror fans.

Amnesia , Outlast, five night at freddy were all great but honestly i want to be able to fight back in those kind of games and thats where games like TEW comes and i was not disappointed and i enjoyed it so much so i think in the end , this is what matters. Hopefully we get to see more of those games. And hopefully Silent Hills delivers.

I wholeheartedly agrespecially now with games like Among the Sleep and Enola. It also push mainstream game developers to finally make survival horror games again

It was a very disappointing game in my opinion. Didn't like the pacing at all and I know it was from the guy who made Resident Evil and it showed. The later levels were nothing more than a RE: 4 rip off.

The story made absolutely no sense and the ending just made me scratch my head even more.

Maybe the sequel will be better.

@Dark Ocelet
Except this isn't RE:4, it's another game. If anything all this does is make it seem he's a hack that can't design any other type of game.

And if DLC is needed to make a story complete then that is even more of a hack filled job.

DarkOcelet1415d ago

Lol, you do realise that he was the one who made Re4 sooo how can he rip his own game :/. Either way i think the story will make since when the Dlc come out.
