I started playing this last night and wow; it's hand down one of the most atmospheric game I've ever played. The visuals and sound design are top notch and it ran flawlessly. Playing in 5.1 and having voices whispering and shouting at you from all directions was both mesmerising and anxiety inducing. I cannot wait to play again tonight!
I want this game so, so badly. I think when I finally get the full internet back (and not this 512k nonsense) I am going to buy this, lock all of the curtains and doors and play the crap out of it.
Aw man, you're in for a treat when you get it, it's so, so good!! Best game I've played in a long, long time
been watching and reading trailer and reviews for this game. damn it, i may not have a lot of gaming hours, and I got a Steam library full of unfinished game, but it's really hard to resist my buy-now impulse.......
If you do pull the trigger you won't regret it.
Played this after seeing this review, what a cracking little game.
Sure, the fighting gets a bit boring and there isn't much in terms of actual different things to do, but the way the game is done is incredible. The final fight(s) were awesome and the story just....wow.
I finished it last night, what a journey. Easily one of the best games I've ever played. It came out of nowhere too, before the reviews I'd never heard of it, so glad I pulled the trigger.
This may be of interest to those that have played it:
24 hrs to go.. Just 24 hours...
Actually I might be a devil and stay up until 1 o'clock in the morning (Rik, 15 Cwedability stweet) and get it then. That means it will be ready for me when I get up with my coffee..
OK so I got it downloaded late last night and had a 20 minute go. One thing that put me off right from the start was the GPU fan noise. Because this jumps straight into the beautiful the GPU goes ballistic. And my, it is beautiful. Amazingly so, it almost feels like you are taking part in a movie. But all of that time my GPU was going absolutely nuts. So bad was it that I had to turn on the subtitles which I feel distract from the game. I could wear headphones, but had already had them on for thirteen hours straight and my ears needed a rest. I like the combat, and so far it's like "Well I am playing Tomb Raider only it looks ten times better and runs better".
What was weird was that Senua is a dead ringer for a girl I used to work with called Melissa. So much so it sorta put me off haha. You really do need to pinch yourself to convince yourself it isn't real.
Then the phone rang, and today I have to go out. But I will be back tomorrow afternoon to settle down and play
