Real Horror Stories Ultimate Edition is a poop stain on the gaming industry. It is the worst game on Steam, without question. I am perplexed at how this game made its way onto Steam. RHS reminds me of flash games I used to play when I was like, 8. I got this game for $0.50, and I STILL feel like I paid to much for it.
The first thing I do when I launch a game is go into the settings. This game doesn't have any settings options. That's always a bad sign. I sighed, and then decided to play. I was greeted with an abundance of muddy textures and poor animations that looked like they were made in MS Paint.
This "game" (if you can call it that) is one of those "click-everywhere-and-wait-for-things-to-happen" games that you find online. There are almost no genuine puzzles. You literally just click everything you see and hope that it triggers a depressingly hideous, tasteless jumpscare. But the thing is, sometimes your mouse doesn't turn into a hand to signify that you can click the item. This isn't that big of problem in the earlier levels, but once it gets more difficult, you're going to have to look up a walkthrough. Sometimes you could be clicking on the right item, but because the game wants you to be very precise on what part of the item you're clicking on, you could just be clicking on the wrong part. That is very frustrating. I ended up just quitting the game because I was following everything that the walkthrough (made by the creators of the game) was saying, but I still couldn't pass the level. They need to fix this. Another thing that annoys me is that you can only save every 3 levels. This isn't a problem in the earlier levels because of how short they are, but in the later levels, it's a ♥♥♥♥♥. I can't tell you how many times I've had to redo a level just because I had to go somewhere or do something or the game crashed.
I also have a problem with the jumpscares. I am not that big a fan of gore, and this game sure has a lot of it. I am usually able to stomach most other games, but this game just takes it too far. This game is unbearably gruesome and unsettling. This game isn't scary, it's just grotesque.
This game only has two positives.
1) It runs.
2) The sound is not terrible.
Overall, this is a ♥♥♥♥ game. I am disappointed at Valve for letting this game in.
