I, however, have played this game. A lot, in fact. I sunk around 50+ hours into the whole experience and found the game to be engrossing and easily worth the twenty dollar asking price. So how could I be so wrong, having played the game and all? Because I didn't know the truth. The ineffable yet utterly obvious fact: good video games didn't exist prior to Modern Warfare 2. There was no such thing as a good game for the NES or Dreamcast. There was no system seller title for your Nintendo 64 or Playstation. Forget what you thought you knew about Perfect Dark or Symphony of the Night or any of those games you thought were "good." Childish thoughts, those. Those games could not be good. Have you seen the graphics? They're SO bad, guys!
If you are on the fence, please disregard the negative reviews for this title, as they are incredibly redundant and almost totally useless. The drawbacks to this title are pretty notable once you crack it open, so there is little or no point to spend so much time hammering them (never mind making them the entire focus of your ire). And yes, some may consider them core elements of what essentially makes a video game. Graphics are not "next gen." Controls take some getting used to.Read more ›
When I first saw trailers for Deadly Premonition, I was quite intrigued (I love adventure and survival horror games)-so I was going to get this game regardless price or quality (there are so few games in those genres these days that it's hard to get my fix)... and when I heard that it was going to be 20 bucks, I got even more excited (most budget games these days cost 40... which is 20 bucks more than what a budget game cost one console generation ago). I have to say, I've been very pleasantly surprised with this game.
Graphically, it's no showboat, that's for sure, but it's competent--especially for the price. The character models look like high-end original XBOX models, but the environments, especially texture-wise, are rather lacking. I had seen the previews and the price tag, so I wasn't going in expecting Crysis; but if you're a graphics whore, you will be quite disappointed. Regardless of the low polygon count and texture resolutions, I really liked the game's atmosphere--the environments are intriguing and surreal which really helps maintain the game's mood.
The story is captivating and very well done with a competent cast, especially for a budget title, to help keep you engaged for the 20+ hour campaign. It's an odd blend of surreal horror and quirky humor that manages to work well together. It's quite unlike anything you'll experience in a big budget title... the game takes a lot of risks, which is probably why it ended up being a budget title (ie.Read more ›
The graphics are far from terrible, and in a way they have a certain charm that requires you to use your imagination to fill in the blanks. Deadly Premonition reminds me of the sort of bizarre japanese games that were de rigueur on the Dreamcast, games like Illbleed, Maken X, and D2. The investigation is over 20 hours long and there is an abundance to see and do in the town of Greenvale. Gamers with an open mind who would like to see something different, or maybe just to revisit an earlier era of far-out gaming that is now all but dead, should not hesitate to give Deadly Premonition a shot.
For some reason this game clicks with me very strongly and a lot of people have said 'it's so bad it's good,' or 'I laughed through it lolz' and I have to disagree. There is a good healthy and might I add a refreshing dose of humor for about the first half of the game. Then it shifts into a much more serious tone and managed to draw me in even more than I thought. This transition happened so smoothly that I actually ended up caring about how the story was progressing. Thanks to this little technique of 'character building' I was actually riveted to my seat. I kept pressing on just to see what was going to happen next. So here we go, here's the rumors and the truth.
"The graphics suck!" - Well I still play Atari, NES, SNES, DOS and PS1 games. I had no problem overlooking the fact that these were PS2 era graphics. If anything I think it added a bit. It lets your imagination fill in where the graphics engine leaves off. (Trust me your mind can fill in more texels-per-second than any computer ever will.) As far as I can tell 'poor graphics' hasn't effected Silent Hill 1 at all. So why should this be a problem now?
"The controls are clunky!" - The controls do take some getting used to, and I did find driving to be a little cumbersome.Read more ›
