Hmmm...I dont know what to say...My lovely girlfriend and I played the game and actually had a lot fun!
We got to the last boss of what I'm assuming is the first chapter and almost killed him.
Close to his demise we both died...
"Ok...lets just start from the checkpoint" we thought...
"Wh...where's the checkpoint? why are we in the lobby?"....
We both just stared at each other in shock...IF YOU DIE YOU NEED TO RESTART!?
Sure, you can argue that we should have played better...and you're probably right...but this was our first time playing, and we were not aware that death of all players meant restarting the entire mission! It would have been great to have known that from the beginning! :(
We spent a lot of time exploring the entire map...getting all collectibles and so on...and actually had A LOT of fun! The game in it's core is not bad! We actually really liked it!
The thing is, this kind of mechanism is not really a friendly one :)
When you launch the game it actually tells you that it has an auto-save function....we didnt even suspect that our endevours though the subway would be simply wiped at the event of our death :(
I have purchased a 4 pack...We will give the game another go of course...but this is not a very nice welcome :)
Perhaps it's saving checkpoints only on easy mode? No idea...I'll have to check that...
Either way, I don't know how to rate the game...on the one hand, we really liked and enjoyed it...on the other hand, this deadly-wipey surprise kind of left us with a bad taste in our mouths. (Hence why I'm feeling like typing this)
We're a couple that loves videos games...and always looking for new, good co-op oriented ones...
It's a bit of a shame that such a "mechanic" was put in place :s
Perhaps it should have been more as en option that you can toggle on / off...Or at the very least presented and informed in some way - Let us know what the risks and mechanics are!
For the time being, I'll not recommend purchasing unless you have no problem with having your entire progress wiped at the event of your death.
just to be clear: THE GAME IS GOOD! I recommend playing it! It's indeed really fun! Just keep in mind that it's a bit brutal in that regard...Perhaps this is why it's called Final Exam ;)
Anyway, I'll update this after the next time we'll play :)
Till then, have a great time folks ^^
