Glad it comes to PS5, it was a really interesting experience.

Some parts were awfully bad, but it reaches some remarkable peaks. I think I'll replay it someday.

TGG_overlord40d ago

I know right? That is true...The balance actually reminds me of "Bullet Witch", some parts of the game is just pure awesomeness, while other parts of the game is anything but great...And to this very day, I'm still scratching my head over what actually took place during the development process of "Bullet Witch", since the game is so extremly unblanaced.

50$ is a crazy asking price. When it hits the 5-10$ bargain bin I may grab it then. I doubt it takes too long

TGG_overlord40d ago

Based on what? Isn't that the standard launch price more or less? In that case, don't hold your breath ;)


Scorn creeps on to PlayStation 5 later this year

I imagine it will be better thanks to the haptics of the controller. I tried to get into it on SX but it just didnt 'feel' right.

Tacoboto96d ago

I think the audio of the game coming through the controller would do more to improve the 'feel' than the haptics. There are a lot of subtle ambient noises that would be better communicated and more effective the closer they are to you the player.

There just isn't enough interaction to make haptics be the deciding factor on 'feel' over audio, IMO. Grey-on-grey art styles make me prone to motion sickness and I did get that once about midway through the game; I remember cranking up the volume when playing after that to get a better sense of those quieter tones.

DazaMc96d ago

I loved it up until the combat started. Terrible terrible combat.

Concertoine95d ago

It is. Best thing you can do is run away

Kurt Russell95d ago

It's also better when it doesn't take up any space on your HDD. I gave it a go, it's boring.

Flawlessmic95d ago

rubbish game, unless its going to be on the ps subscription save your money guys.

Elda96d ago

If they don't fix the combat which was a problem on the XB then it's not even worth it. It'll be dead when it comes to sales on the PS5.

crazyCoconuts96d ago

I think it was worth the time to play, it was interesting even though the combat was janky.
A memorable experience- I was pleasantly surprised.
Now I played it on a $1 GamePass trial...I wouldn't pay more than $15 for it imo

Elda96d ago

The game is retail priced at $40. PS owners aren't paying full price for Scorn knowing the combat is horrible. I doubt if PS owners would pay $15 let alone $10...lol.

Ashunderfire8696d ago

I was bored to tears watching gameplay videos of this game! I felt tired, because everything just looks the same, and weird. Yes the combat sucks bad too.

crazyCoconuts96d ago

it is weird and unique. ended up having a pretty decent story that you uncover with like no dialog. Pretty interesting. puzzles weren't bad. i'm glad i played it in the end

darthv7296d ago

If they add a VR mode... that would be much more immersive.

Elda96d ago

If they did make the game in VR for the PSVR2 & fixed the combat then it would probably stand a chance in sales on the PS5, otherwise most PS5 owners aren't buying Scorn especially at the retail price of $40.

ironmonkey96d ago

Yeah but everything sells more on ps that's a fact.

misterandy95d ago (Edited 95d ago )

PSVR would be great, but you’re missing the point if you think the combat needs to be worked on. The main character isn’t Doom Guy…

It’s not meant to be easy, and there are times when you’re meant to feel afraid and like you might not survive. It’s an intentional design of the game for you to experience that.

I would even argue that one particularly memorable encounter is some of the most fun I’ve had with a “boss fight” in my gaming history.
