There are only like 5 or 6 different zombies variants in total, and they all have the same ''style'', it's probably one of the reason why TEW2 feels so TLoU to me.
Yeah man, one of the things I’m most disappointed in with this game is the design of the Lost. Like you said, in the first game we had so many different haunted. Ones with barbed wire on their heads, punji stakes, clown masks, cultist robes, city garb, body armor, weird freaky skin tight masks (the ones that just show up in the mannequin factory). And several variants for each kind.
These ones all look largely the same and it’s not a particularly freak design. They also don’t sound very scary imo.
I disagree, there're actually way more different enemies and bosses in TEW1, if you really think about it.
At least this game seems to have more enemy variety in general to help make up for that though.
