Indsendt: 15. december
I can't even. Give it a score without..., I will just have to tell you about it for you to understand.
First off, at the starting scene there are no voice actors for the characters involved, just REALY FAST text that passes you by. Also you have no idea dafuq is going on.
Then you get thrown into the game.
I tried interacting with EVERYTHING I could think of, no way out of the first room. (And i'm not going to spoil how to beat the room eighter) after about 30 minutes YES 30 MINUTES of searching I finaly find the most abstract things you have to do to leave. And am thrown into another room wich also took 20 minutes to solve.
As I struggle tirelessly to interact and be repeatedly killed by a single foe in a sertain bs room.
I get to a room with lots of water, you are supposed to somehow escape by fixing an underwater core. That requires you, and I ♥♥♥♥ you not... To litteraly launch yourself like a dolphin onto a platform wich takes like 50 tries.
Some of my friends come to me for help with these kinds of games cause they are "Too easy and obvious" this only is so abstract you need to actualy have the patience of a saint. Btw I was promised to be shooting things with guns. 4 hours in, stuch on like the 5th room. I finaly ragequit. 4 HOURS people. This game has interesting puzzles but my god are the abstract, hard to solve because there is no serious indication of what you have to do as a goal. You just "Figure it out yourself"
I was watching a walkthrough on the side, and even people who do walkthrought for these type of games had no idea what the ♥♥♥♥ was actualy going on... In fact it took longer for them to solve it than me for atleast as far I got.
This game is rage inducing. And i'm generaly pretty calm.
So what would I rate this and what do I think of it.
Puzzle Design: -3 "Some are just a bit long winded and difficult."
Map Design: -5 "I have no idea where or what the ♥♥♥♥ I should be interacting with."
Graffics: 7 "Looks good, even for my old pc."
Plot: -7 "After 4 hours I am yet to find a plot."
UI: 8 "Easy to use, very bad system for panic situations."
Gameplay: 1 "Game is too hard and abstract at current."
The game is as fun as grabbing a bag of,... lets say grain, then emptying that bag into an airvent making it be blow all over and throughout a skyscraper and then tasking someone with finding all of the grain, piece by piece.
Just as fun as trying to find anything you ever need and just not finding it for hours on end. And then realising you are missing something else,... The search continues.
My point is, games are supposed to be fun. This game in the 4 hours of time I gave to try and be entertained. I was not entertained. I did not have fun. And thus this game failed to do what its supposed to. And before anyone goes, well you just don't like this type of game. Actualy I generaly don't, and wouldn't normaly buy a game like this, but I do enjoy some of them. They are fun when they make sense, and you feel like you are actualy progressing and doing something worth your time. This game did not make me feel like it was worth my time.
I will make my best efforts to finish a game, and aslong as there is some kind of fun to be had I can keep going. But this game is not a game I will ever finish. I rarely review games, but I just felt like I had to on this one. If you want to buy this game for the "shooting any type of gun" aspect, I adivise you don't touch it with a 20 foot pole. Because like me, you will never, ever, get there.
