I'm still making my way through it, been a super busy time lately and on chapter 7 on Nightmare for my first run, it's been intense. Excited to get to the other half and see how I feel.Here are my thoughts on it. Its not as good as the first, still a great game though. Last stretch of chapters were by far the best and its when the game started to feel as imaginative as the first. Chapter 14 was everything the game should have been, its what so much of the first game was, its what RE4 is in nearly every room. The clear difference from that levels encounter and the usual encounters you get throughout the game show why this game is a slight let down.
Its also telling that the best boss battle in the game. There are weird glitches and terrible AI with some of the enemies, especially later ones. Sometimes stealth attacks work, sometimes it doesn't, there seems to be no method to it.is just a collection of bosses from the first game
The story is more focused and makes sense compared to the first but I feel it loses a lot of personality. I enjoyed the characters from the first game much more, the mystery of the first game kept me engaged. The final chapters really bring the story home from a cheesy melodramatic one to a story with an actual good ending.
Game is still a bunch of fun, I cant get enough of games like this. I just wish it had more of the Mikami design all throughout.
Just had rebranded about everything else (twitter, youtube,etc) BUT my profile there so, this is the new me! :D
I did upgrade it but I never got much use of it to be honest. There are better things to upgrade like stealth or save up for bullet time. It's probably more useful the second time around when you have the brass knuckles :)
Here's a little hint, there's a way to actually pass the boss without having to kill it, you can begin to do it from the start of the match, but you gotta' look around a bit and be observant.
! Hmm... I never thought about that. I'll give it another shot. Thanks!
While I wasn't the biggest fan of Joseph during the first game & DLC, I really would like to know what happened to him after the end of the original story.
Agree with most of what you say about the game, however, I know I didn't enjoy it nearly as much.I finished it asking myself if I enjoyed it nearly as much as the first, but still had a good time. Performance could use work but I was good to go after a bit of tweaking. Passable story though I was happy to see that they had closure to various subplots.
Is Sykes possibly dead? Let's say he made it out with his backdoor method, wouldn't the chip have ruptured his brain once STEM was taken offline?
It's definitely more action than horror. In the first few chapters, there's a good deal of tension, but by the time you hit chapter 4 or 5, I found it to be lacking in overall tension outside of "maybe I don't have enough ammo."So on the horror scale where does this fall? Is it more action horror-ish like RE4 and Dead Space or is closer to RE7 and PT? Basically I’m kind of a scaredy cat, but this game does seem interesting to me. And I was able to get through stuff like Dead Space and had a good time, but RE7 was uncomfortable for me to even watch someone else play.
As far as your spoiler:
I think you're right. There was only a 1/4 chance he made it out... and there was no reference to another body type situation like Ruvik used with Leslie, so if he was lucky enough to not die, I think Myra/Juile's actions must've killed him.
