A trip through the Rabbit Hole
on May 19, 2013
I bought this game, because of the gameplay I had seen, because of the trailers which really caught my attention.
Anyways...NO regrets! Great purchase, and would buy it again at its current price point. Especially even more so after learning about the developers situation. (They seriously need to move to a "free'er" location than they currently live at.
The atmosphere of the game, is what won me over. This reminded me of the Fallout Series, but with its own twist. Your not getting so much of an open world experience as you are following the journey of a man and his quest to save a small place on earth.
Just throwing this out their, their's a well done lap-dance in this game. But only if you pay for it, and its well placed. Like a oasis in a desert. So it serves a purpose.
Anyways, bullet point time.
-Knife throwing is a blast
Music is well done
Atmosphere of the game, the environments are all varied, in each one it doesn't feel like a repetitious place, even if your traversing another tunnel. Which, all things considered was probably hard to pull off.. being as the place was literally nuked.
Story, (Thanks to the book author)
And the content in the game is well done, you face quite a few scenarios that would probably be found in a post apocalyptic world. Where baser instincts take over. And it was nice to see the touched upon.
The world isn't open, you can't visit places at whim.
"more of a things I wish were"
Backtracking, because ammo is sparse, you know, so it'd be nice to be able to back track and collect ammo, or revisit places. Or this aside, it'd been nice to be able to pick up more weapons, you might not have been able to use them, but instead put them in your "Junk bag" or "sellers bag" or something.. so you could sell them at vendors. I left many a good firearm laying about. Which sucked.
Ammo choice would have been nice, I'm mainly referring to the shotgun. Been nice to plug some of those ball bearings you find into your shells, or use slugs..
Anyways, if you enjoyed the fallout 3 and newvegas for the 360, you'll more than likely enjoy this game as well. Yeah you can't explore, but its still fun and worth the effort.
disclaimer: all just my perspective.
