This is the ONLY time I've reviewed anything - ever. This game (expletive) me off so much I had to write. I have so far sat through 40 mins of this sad excuse for a game. IN THE FIRST 40 MINS OF THIS GAME, I've MAYBE played LESS THAN ONE MINUTE of ACTUAL GAME PLAY. Ridiculously long cut scenes that are hard to follow and you cant get out of. You're forced to watch at GREAT LENGTH with a controller in your hand - wondering what you've done to pi$$ off the gaming gods so much that you're forced to sit through this (expletive). Really, put this in the movie section. I don't want to WATCH a game - I WANT TO PLAY IT. I can't believe how worthless this game is. 40 mins so far and less than 1 minute of actual game play. STAY AWAY - SAVE YOUR SANITY The developers clearly did very little on this game. All you needed was a cartoonist and some beer to make the pointless movie that this ended up as.
Worst game Ive ever played. I do not say that lightly. Reviewing solely to spare you from wasting any time. Groups of NPC's talk over one another so that you can't really follow what they're saying. The story unfolds through so much artless talking & boring diary entries. The human enemy AI is so worthless that you can "stealth" kill them while they're looking right at you without ever alerting them. At times groups of human enemies will rush to your location after being alerted, just run headlong into your fire. Early on in the game, you will find much of your movement hampered by lame spiderwebs. A few would be one thing, but they're everywhere. The game is really limiting of your movement to the point of almost like being on a rail. Speaking of rails, when you get your train car it is so pathetically slow. The kiddie train ride at the park moves faster. Movement in the game in general is just painfully slow. The kicker is that the game is full of bugs. I found the first one within about 10 minutes of play. I was playing on hard and died. Reloaded and was put face-to-face with an enemy. He starts shooting me but his bullets do no damage. No matter what I did, I was not able to equip a weapon and couldn't melee. I advanced only by finding the exit. By the way, there are often times where finding the exit is easier said the done, and it's not some clever puzzle. They're fishing without bait. Finally I reached the bandits segment in my slow-azz train car. You're to free a tied-up prisoner and he will help you by moving an obstacle on the tracks. One problem though: crummy game glitched and the tied up man couldn't be freed. Period. Not even by reloading. That was it for me. I hit eject. Disk back in sleeve. Done. Game could've been good. Ultimately this is a second rate title at best. In my case it was unplayable garbage. Many better titles to occupy your time. Bioshock Infinite, Dead Space 3, TLoU, even Farcry 3. Skip this one.
