My copy arrived early in the mail so I've been enjoying it a little bit.

I am about three to six hours in.

Lots of references to other thriller / horror franchises.

Still not sold on Union / the open world design though to be honest. Reminds me of Downpour (ie. "did we really need this")

Will keep playing regardless. The first game took a bit to click with me as well.

A bit worried that the villains won't be as intimidating or as interesting as TEW. Or that what happened at the end of TEW won't be touched upon at all.

But we'll see :)

Any idea how often the game checkpoints in relation to the first game?

I'm thinking of playing on Nightmare for the added tension and difficulty, and with the first game I had a habit of at times just letting myself get killed and retrying when resource management or a fight went real bad.

I was thinking with this game being more open-world, maybe there would be less frequent auto-saves or checkpoints.

Well.. the game does look clean.. but again I have no idea what can be improved with a Pro support.

Plus.. there is no logo on the back of the gameís box with the Pro logo... so.....

I have never lost a great amount of progress and I am dying a lot on Nightmare. That being said it could easily frustrate and turn people off if they were to start on Nightmare without knowing what they're getting.

I think if you can beat TEW1 on any difficulty that Nightmare should be manageable.

The difficulty in the first game mostly came from instant death mechanics, but I'd say in terms of how much ammo you get and how much damage you take from enemies it was about right on survival. Not sure how nightmare on 2 compares to that?

On Nightmare I am constantly struggling to have enough bullets to put down one enemy. Stealth is just a much easier option. The bow is great too, but once again finding the parts to craft the ammo is beginning to become a bit of a challenge too.

Like I love this kind of shit in games like this but what I mean to say is that it would put so many people off who didn't grow up with Survival Horror games.

I haven't found any instant death mechanics yet but I have been running around Union doing random things so haven't done heaps of the story moments just yet.

The horror is way less.......grotesque? More weird and surreal kind of stuff like Twin Peaks meets The Shining meets Hannibal. I like it, but hope the gross gore and viscera of the first game return too.

In regards to PS4 Support - I think the best we can hope for is a stable 30FPS and maybe some improved load times or higher quality textures/shadows. Crossing my fingers for some downsampling.

And the Playstation page of the game has the Pro enhanced logo on it (https://www.playstation.com/en-us/ga...-within-2-ps4/)

Seriously though, part of the interesting story stuff (seriously) in the first game was that almost everything about Sebastian is a 'fantasy' projection of himself, like he's half-dreaming and walking through the dreamstate in macho-cop-mode.

In the first game's DLC the protagonist was aware it was a dream/nightmare and she was written infinitely better. No cheese, no ham. But everything with Seb/other characters who weren't so aware was cheesy as hell.

It worked well, IMO.

That was the best chapter of the game though. Most menacing atmosphere, great encounters, and some of the most intense escalation up of action and threat Iíve played in an action game. The chapter is at times literally a meat grinder.

It would be a shame if it didn't tbh. Chap 10 was bliss.

Knowing Mikami, it will though, even though it's directed in full by him.

I've warmed to it more and it's only been an hour or so.

Downpour was a bad comparison in hindsight. I might just keep playing.

I'll be honest, I don't remember a lot of things from the first game. I remember the general gameplay, story, and characters. But that's about it. Haven't played it since its release.

Amnesia
Layers of Fear
The Observer
Resident Evil Revelations 2

Those are just a few other than RE7 and EW. EW takes a fat dump over all those though. Granted RE7 is the second best. It would be stronger than EW if the enemies weren't so whack.
