Came here from youtube, and I think it's pretty good.
I had fun playing this game. The way the characters handle is mostly smooth, but the buttons sometimes stick at inoppurtune times.
At first, I though this game would be easy. Then I starved to death around day 5 or day 6. There is some strategy to staying alive in this game and how to manage your time before the night descends. The game play in minimal, but functional most of the time. The jump scares kind of wear off for a while, but the mysterious hooded character always had me on edge. The isolation was also a bit scarier than any sudden scary face, the thought of dying alone in a cold wasteland just as horrifying as any sudden scary noise. The theme of the game of not living in fear and not completely demonizing humanity was a plus. I'd like to see a sequel to this with more things for the character to do then just to survive. IâEUTMm also excited to see the story to continue from this gameâEUTMs ending to see what happens to Sam and the rest of humanity.
I did enjoy this game, but the mass enemy spam makes the game laggy, and there is a bug here and there that could be fixed. Incidentally, I started typing this review after the game froze up after level 5. I tried killing the last of the zombies, but the shots and slices just wouldn't take. They only died after i clicked on them with the sniper rifle, whereas they glitched and finally fell. Right now, I have killed all the zombies, but there is no result screen popping up and instructing me on my next mission.
I've been playing this series for a couple of years now. What set it apart, for me at least were the setting, weapon design and atmosphere. The backgrounds in game helped capture the sheer carnage and feeling of desolation that ravaged this semi-rural series of villages. The hero's power and the monster designs gave the curse village series of games a type of j-horror vibe which I enjoyed immensely. This time around, not so much.
With the glitches fixed, I would've given this game four stars. The 1st and 2nd curse villages were awesome, but this one just feels rushed.
