Multiplayer itself is just some boring mode where you make a character that can be an investigator, a ghoul, or a Quinx. But the custom models available are just the ones they used for the random mini boss npcs scattered throughout the game so its really awkward seeing similar models to your own characters when you try to play online in the co-op mode. There's also pvp, but to be honest it's mediocre and shouldn't be taken seriously for an anime game. Most players have wifi connection and ruin the game anyways, and a lot of people dip during the matches if they're losing which wastes everyone's time. The online portion of this game really is nothing to get excited about, its just another whatever kind of online multiplayer experience that was made by bandai namco that will hardly receive any type of DLC or patches in the future. In fact, this game will probably receive one type of DLC at best, or maybe none at all since they aren't really pushing for this game's publicity that much.
What really bothers me about this game, is that even though they delayed the game for an entire year, the amount of actual story content provided to the player is extremely vacant given the size of the Tokyo Ghoul story size. I'm not even going to bother with the Root A part since the title of the game is :RE after all, but all they could offer was around 9-ish missions with 1 or 2 side missions attached to them, really? And these missions skip so many parts of the :RE story that were really good, and it's such a shame that people won't get to experience them because the dev team got lazy with it. This is severely worse than the :RE anime adaption skipping content that was in the manga. In comparison to that, this is probably 3 times worse. There is literally no context a lot of the times throughout the story mode, and it skips ahead of the story so much that people that aren't that strong in the TG :RE lore are definitely going to be confused and have absolutely no idea what just happened. To basic people that buy anime games just because they're anime, they won't really care about this, but for Tokyo Ghoul fans that loved the story so much, this game is such a major disappointment and is definitely not catered towards them at all.
As for the graphics of the game I don't really have to say the obvious, its really outdated and pretty poverty, we all knew this from the trailers. The music however is good for what it is, but something I wished that they did was make more soundtrack songs to use because you hear the same 2 songs pretty much every text dialogue scene that you get to experience and it starts to lose its effect about mid-way through the game which is unfortunate.
Pet Peeves I Found While Playing
- During the Root A part of the story mode you get to play as Kaneki after he is tortured by Jason. So if you're a fan of the anime or manga, you know that after Kaneki fights back against Jason, he starts to force him to count backwards the same way Jason tried to do it to him. Well when you play as Kaneki in his Root A character variant, he literally keeps repeating that same voiced line that he said in the show every 10 seconds when you fight trash mobs after you beat jason and move ahead to advance towards Ayato. This was something that was just supposed to be said in that one scene, but the devs decided to make him generically edgy for no reason and made him spew out those lines every time you fight somebody in that Kaneki variant and that got old real fast.
- The AI in this game is pretty mediocre, the bot teammates you receive are really useless and are really only there to be meat shields for you and won't even use their healing items on you even when they have maxed out healing items capacity on them. I also decided to be cheeky and see how bad the AI could be and I moved one static AI CCG soldier that is present at the start of the mission when I was playing Shirazu at the auction house, and I was able to move his frozen static body all the way to the trash mobs ahead of me to see how it would react. It just stood there and died, like why is the AI so basic like this? It really does feel like somebody that recently learned a game engine such as Unity would make in 8 hours just to mess around.
- The back of the game box says that you get bonuses included, but you actually don't.
- If somebody is afk during online co-op there is no way to remove them. Your only choice is to leave.
Overall, the game suffers from a lack of actual commitment to filling in the story mode for the die hard fans of Tokyo Ghoul, and would honestly have been a lot better if they actually bothered to include actual missions that didn't have such ridiculous plot point gaps between them. I mean, they didn't even bother to make a mission from the first volume of the :RE manga, only a cheap and lazy text dialogue screen that lasted for like 25 seconds. Then after that, it skips all the way to the auction house for your first mission and didn't even bother to mention Torso's existence at the very least when they begin the :RE story line part of the game. So please, if you're an actual Tokyo Ghoul fan don't waste anymore above $20 on this game, because that's the highest that this game could be worth and I'm being generous.
