This is all personal opinion, but I wondered how other people got on with the game?
Im about half way through now, but really finding it hard to keep playing. Graphically it's very nice but i'm really not understanding the hype it's getting.
It's very similar to the GTA 4 situation for me, people going nuts over it (Eurogamers 10/10 etc...), yet the experience feels decidely average too me.
It feels like a game riding on Naughty Dogs rep, rather than actually feeling good to play.
The voice acting is fantastic, really, really well done. The story however is pretty standard IMO.
The actual gameplay is really getting on my tits though. The stealth mechanic is just okay, many times i've been spotted when im completly in cover, and many times guards have wzlked right past me while im in plain sight.
I've dropped the difficulty down to 'normal' as I kept having to repeat the same sections over and over again... Really boring, just learning patterns, but not in a fun way like Hitman.
Also, the bits where your hanging are awful, just boring defence missions which add nothing to the game.
The clickers that one hit kill you are annoying as fuck too, I know you can use a shiv, but the animations are way out. Many times they would just grab me and one hit kill even when I was attacking them... It's a very cheap way of adding tension to a game and it sucks.
The gameplay is the same all the way through at the moment:
talk talk talk... stealth scene with humans... talk talk talk.... stealth scene with clickers... talk talk talk... ad infinitum...
Anyway, i'm trying to chip away at it, but I feels like such a chore. Hugely overrated title IMO.
It is 95% on metaritic though, so im def in the minority.
I also felt the same way about Bioshock Infinate btw, so maybe this thread can be about games you think are overrated or have been 'let downs' for you.
