Top Customer Reviews
This game is a true delight to play. It brings back the original aspects of what truly frightens your senses. Dark environments, unknowns lurking around the corner, the uncertainty of not knowing where you are, this game has mastered it all with stunning graphics to boot. For those wondering what the game play is like; take all the examples I listed above, and put their best aspects together.
Now that you know the game is awesome to play, let's talk about graphics. This game has taken a big leap forward for Bethesda; they have fine tuned their graphics engine and produced a masterpiece. I have played this on my 42" TV in my living room and it looks like you're watching an animated horror film. The graphics don't cut at all, the visual effects are amazing, the details in the characters are top notch.
For those of you reading the reviews for people who have had issues with the game, those are coming from people who don't know how to work their stuff. Take it from a 20 year IT veteran, there is nothing wrong with this game at all.
I can't get over how awesome this game is. I've been playing it for two days straight and jumped several times. This one is definitely at the very top of my horror gaming collection. Do yourself a favor and buy it, it is very highly worth it.
Gameplay mechanics (4/5)
If you played Resident Evil 4, the gameplay mechanics are almost identical. Even the zombies are pretty much the same in that they will usually shamble along slowly, giving you time to line up your shots, unless they get close and then they will run at you. You can sprint, crouch and sneak although you can't jump with the exception of contextual based areas where you climb or hurdle things. You can assign up to 4 hotkey items for easy access. If you want to access a gun that hasn't been assigned to a hotkey, you do a partial pause of the game to pick your new gun. I say partial pause because it doesn't actually pause the game but slows everything to about 1/4 of it's normal speed. So in the thick of battle it gives you some time to make adjustments but you still can't dawdle. The game uses green gel as it's currency, which you can gather throughout the maps and then spend them to upgrade things like weapon damage, magazine capacity, max health, sprint time, reload speed, melee damage, etc. Scattered throughout the maps are little ceramic statues which hold keys. The keys can be used back at your "base/hub" area to unlock lockers, which usually contain goodies like lots of ammo, lots of green gel, health items, etc.
You shoot a variety of weapons including revolvers, shotguns, sniper rifles and a crossbow.Read more ›
It has a special edition packing slipcover with a hologram of Sebastian's face screaming with barbwire on it.
The cover on the case is the same but with a cover on the back of the asylum in black with a blood red sky with a outline a the main character with a gun.
Inside is a Steam code for the Fighting Chance Pack digital upgrade and a actual full game manual with the Steam activation code on back. The game is on 4 dvds.
Update All the codes work on steam but even after installing from the dvds you will have to download updates that will take awhile to download.
