That game sucks so bad...Whatever review you read, it's true and worst. Average to bad graphics, mediocre voice acting, bugs everywhere, terrible controls, way too many cutscenes, and story that does not make any sense.... One of the worst game I have honestly tried to play in a long time. As far as I am concerned, I'm returning this.

Y'know, a number of games are reviewed both by 3MR and ZP (3MR first, then ZP) Is it because Yahtzee has his own list of games and the games that get reviewed twice is coincidence?

I feel like he forgot to mention how few genuine "stalker" moments the game has. There's only really one at the start and one at the end. The rest of the encounters are either puzzles or you're supposed to get caught.

Hoooo ouch that is one scathing review. Justified, but still nasty. You'd really think companies would have learned by now that this whole 'launch now patch later' approach just often doesn't work. I mean yes sometimes you can get away with it, but not when the game is literally unplayable like this.

gotta say, i thought these 3 minute reviews sucked before because they were essentially just a recap of the story and explanation of the gameplay but this is a much better improvement, actually touching on issues such as bugs & poor story telling. i'd honeslty keep watching these reviews if these improvements continue!

Unpolished implies the game was ready for release but just needed a quick touch-up. I think saying the game was unfinished would be more accurate since what it needed was a repair or remodel of the games main structure.

There was a pandemic in Italy, I'm pretty sure it being a heavy hit country of Covid-19 had some affect in the progress of polishing the game. Not only that, delaying the game would cost money and they really had to rush this as a Halloween release. The game no longer uses FMVs; meaning the transition to making the cinematics in realtime was more work for the team to deal with. After testing and playing the game out myself in console and in the process of completing its trophy list, it's bugs are one you'd expect in a game running its gameplay and scripted animations in synch with realtime cinematics. But with all the patches out so far, the game is now playable and performs just as smooth as the first. However, with the current patch v1.03 I suggest you avoid doing manual saves. For some reason the manual save feature is fucking up the save files not allowing you to progress the story. Stick to autosaves if your on PS4 right now.

I really didn't like Will's previous reviews. The tone and script were both very off-putting to me in a series I have otherwise found to be one of my favourite. I much preferred how this one was done. I think there's a big improvement, and I look forward to your next review.

I gave the first game pretty much the same review on steam, it was a buggy unplayable corny mess. The developer sent a bunch of bots to downvote me and left nasty comments on my review. They will not be getting more money from me.

Hmm...hide and seek gameplay, persistent stalkers, mansion setting, mystery based story... The Remothered series seems heavily inspired by Clock Tower/Haunting Ground with a bit of Rule of Rose asthetic. Fecking hell I wonder how many people remember those games.

I do! I love the classic horror games so much, especially Haunting Ground! I beat that game, what, 30 times since it came out, I think? :'D I'll replay it again next month!

Reminds me of Clocktower, Rule of Rose and Haunting Ground. The good old days when games could be made for single players offline.

I guess those three games aren't as obscure as I thought xD. Clock Tower I could understand, since it had several games in the series, but RULE OF ROSE!? I swear for a little while I thought I was the only person in the world to have played it. Hyperbolic of course

The first game was a broken mess as well, but ironically the best 5 min I had in that game was when the stalker was caught in a door and I could thus roam freely untill the next cutscene respawned him.

@Kasarii I personally do feel that BioShock gives you time to look around, be I do agree that a lot of games are guilty of this as well. When I played Uncharted 2 which had been critically acclaimed for its visuals, I wanted nothing more than to take my time taking in all the gorgeous sceneries.... but I seldom could because EXPLOSIONS and GUNFIRE!!!!!!!!!

Måned siden
Kasarii
Kasarii

@PikaLink91 As a worthy side note, a number of non-horror games also dig into this territory. A lot of the settings in games like Bioshock could be neat to visit without the constant gunfire, it wouldn't even cost much development to have that option.

@Kasarii Agreed. To me it is not scary to be chased around, it’s just annoying. Building an ATMOSPHERE is what scares me.

Kasarii

I see it as a general problem for a lot of survival horror that the player often doesn't get any time to roam. With the heat always on as you rush through the scenery, it's hard to appreciate heat OR scenery.

@Faustlican if you finished you'll understand. Chris Darril empahized his stories having an "Importance of Memory" which makes a a similar parallel reference to Rule of Rose' Wendy and Jennifer.

@PikaLink91 The creator of the original Silent Hill, Keiichiro Toyama praised the first game for its faithfulness and nod to old school survival horror games. Did anybody catch Chris Darril's nod to the original Silent Hill? It was when Elisa gets hypnotized right before Jennifer uses the dumbwaiter. The scene is visually similar to Lisa's death scene in the first Silent Hill.

As someone else said, the jankiness is just too much. I don't think patches will fix it, though. This may be an unfortunate pass, as it was for me.

Wait for patches, I don't know how far ahead PC is but there is no reason to rush for that either if you can wishlist it or play the original game instead.
