We found a glitch in the game that would not let us continue because we died before killing 3 needlers in the sewer. This glitch has been documented and I have found various articles about it on line but no fix other than to restart the whole game. We sent it back. Super Bummed!
As the beginning of the game starts, you're faced with a true bred horror situation in a cutscene very similair to hostile the movie. This sets a dark & evil tone that makes you expect nothing but darkness and horror in the game. This is very misleading as you in reality are faced with either super easy or super difficult enemies which are as repetitive as the storyline and game itself. Combat is very uncontrolled, during a violent confrontation you must get lucky to deal with it in a swift or even skilled manor. You are faced with next to no ammo at all, forced to use glitchy melee weapons the majority of the game. Everytime you die either you were placed in a boss battle with no health, the save point is a 1/4 mile away or the checkpoint has you right between the 2 enemies tearin u up. Glitches sent me backwards in the game twice. The puzzles have almost no creativity, but much difficulty, this is the only game I ever cheated on because of the ridiculous puzzles, after an hour and a half of shifting misshapen image tiles, I wanted to kill myself so I googled the answer at that point losing all real interest in the game, overall? The soundtrack was pretty cool.
