this game tries to be ALAN WAKE clone but fails,and several other horror type games,, and it fails in each one also.. wouldnt waste my time on this one,,play the original CONDEMMED or the original THE SUFFERING if you need a scare,,no fright here
Downpour does a few things right, but the good points are so thoroughly eclipsed by the awful combat that it's not even worth going into them. The combat absolutely ruins the experience. It is, without question, the worst I can remember in any game I've played in my life. It's unmanageable, cumbersome and infuriating in every possible way.
If only the final section didn't depend on it so much (and didn't also simply take away all the health packs and ammo I'd hoarded the entire time for that exact possibility), I might have even finished the game. Absolutely appalling.
I wanted to like this game is really did the puzzles were good but the lag and sloppy fighting mechanics made certain stages harder then they should. I would say if your a fan of the series then you might could stomach those issues but for me it became way to frustrating and wasn't the game for me.
