False packaging, This game is just a Manic Shooter. Just goes from one lot of mayhem to another. If you like being surrounded by monsters that move quicker than you and all you do is frantically bash buttons then get this. But if you are expecting a Story forget it.Worst Game I have ever played.
This game beats RES Evil 5 hands down. The controls are smoother and the game itself isn't as serious. You conrol a guy that hunts demons and when his girl is kidnapped by a powerful one you have to journey through hell to get her back alive. It has funny one-liners and has an adult theme running through it so maybe not recommended for young kids!
The shooting is like RES 4, you target with an infra red dot and can take off demons arms, legs and heads. Taking out their legs means you can finish them off by jumping on them as they crawl after you.
You have to balance light areas (safe) and dark which eats at your energy until you leave. You have to go into the darkness to turn off some door locks but don't stay too long as your health goes and there is alot more demons in the darkness after you.
If you're a fan of SH games definitely get this, with 10+hours gameplay its value for money and is great fun too.
To be honest i hadn't heard of this game till a week before release. But after reading a review in a 360 mag where it got a solid 8/10 i decided to give it a go. I have to admit after the first 30-45 minutes i started to doubt my decision. But after continuing with it i soon discovered what a gem of a game it is.
It kinda reminds me off the grindhouse movies the way it plays out. The graphics can occasionly look rough but that adds to the way the game comes across. It has a brilliant music score and the voice acating is tops and the banter between Garcia and Johnson hardest settings as meduim is not to hard to beat.
Wow!, this is a superb game! The controls are great, cool graphics & its well scripted too. Not to mention the awesome soundtrack! The fact that you can upgrade your weapons & other atributes is cool too. 1 or 2 people have bad-mouthed this game but I guess some people are just difficult to please.
The game was great fun to play until chapter 4 it then turns into a frustrating mess because of bad design choices.getting through the first 3 parts of chapter 4 is pure luck and just sucks all the fun out of the game.There is also no new game + feature when you complete the game.
It made me quit playing Zelda till i finshed it.A mix of resident evil ,killer 7 and the sick humor of suda(like a vulgar Tim schaefer) good controlls.Hopin for a sequel
This game is simply mental, its packed full of orginal ideas and pays homage to great horror films ( Evil Dead and Ghostbuster to name two) and video games alike. The script is an aquired taste, its sexual and inpulsive; but not vulgar.
Honeslty there is so many ideas in this game that it should have been split into two games. I wish they would make a sequal but this game has not sold well enough to get one. So play this piece of brilliance whilst you can.
If you like res evil 5, you will enjoy this, but be warned, the dialogue/script is extremely cheesey but it kept me amused throughout the game and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
