So far from what I played I would say its a good game. But its short at 15 hours, and that is if you explore and try to get everything you come
across. I am not regretting that I bought it though, so far I like the game, and it does not start off slow. Literally from the very beginning your
scrambling for you life and going WTF WTF were do I go, its a pretty tense game.
Oh and when people said ammo is scarce. They should have said you get like 4 bullets to kill 10 zombies or infected or whatever the hell those things
are, your guns so far are pretty useless, because it would take at least a few shoots to drop even one of them, and after that your running away.
In fact its a more stealth type approach game then a shoot em up. At one point I was running from 3 of those things in the forest level, and I wasted
all my ammo and did not even drop one of them. At which point I think I wanted to throw my gun at them because it may be more effective then shooting
Oh and another thing, you cant kill them unless you burn the bodies after you drop them. I mean you could literally sneak up behind one of them and
shank them in the head, they would drop dead. And a few moments latter they would just get up and start chasing you again. They implemented some
matches system were you get matches to burn them, but you only have a limited amount of matches, so really once you run out, you can not kill anybody
at all, and the only thing you can really do is to drop them and run away before they get back up, but they chase you everywhere once they see you.
Because as sure as hell 5 bullets to kill off a whole hoard of them is not very helpful at all, and if you did not blow there head off they still get
back up if you dont torch them.
ETA - Oh, and some of the zombies/monster things have guns and shoot at you.....and a humvee with a .50 cal on top. That's why I gave up on the RE
series, well atleast after the second half of RE 5 I said im giving up. (Zombies with guns? That's just disappointing)
Man if they actually have zombies with guns in this game...I think that would be game over you would be at there mercy, in fact they made this game to
try to be more realistic, you even have a stamina meeter, and it freaking drains after 30 something seconds of running. That means you cant even run
away if you wanted to. They have an option to upgrade your stamina and everything else, but thats after you grab a whole bunch of the brain juice
The whole stamina lasting only 30 something seconds is a bit to much, I know if I was being chased by weird zombie creatures, I would run like the
wind till my heart exploded, even if I was completely out of shape I could go for longer then 30 freaking seconds I mean WTF the guy your playing
even looks like he is in good shape. Oh and the more injured you get the slower you get, once you health reaches a certain low, you cant even
freaking run anymore, and if it gets any lower your hobbling around trying to escape whatever is after you which is not going to happen. Basically if
you take to much damage its pretty much a death sentence, and it all goes down hill, even the heal up items are scarce and dont even heal you all that
much, but they to can be upgraded as well.
In all I would say its a good game, but if you played the whole survival horror genre a whole lot it may be better to rent it or wait for a price
drop. I however have not played any of these type of games in a long while, so I am enjoying it, for me I would say it was worth the $60, it even has
a game plus mode after you beat the game, so it does have a bit of replayability. In all its a fun game, Its not something that has never been done
before. Really I think one of the reasons I bought it is because Halloween is coming up and I have not had a good scare or thrill in a while, and so
far I would say the game is really good but its not great.
