scorched earth isnt a bad game ! Me and my friends enjoyed it more than worms back in the day. I liked used the funky bomb (think that was the name) and having the tanks say something after they die. I wish I could play this game again with friends online.
Great fun with a buddy.
Some cool ideas (open world Silent Hill, sidequests), some bad ones (enemy design, combat), technically not exactly great but gets the job done, decent enough plot, all in all, better than Homecoming by a long shot. I enjoyed it.
If "certain level of jank" means the worst performance ever seen on Playstation 2 by farWell the series did start off as one of D3 publishers 2000 yen "simple" series games - so a certain level of jank is only to be expected. Actually, that whole series has a bunch of games that would fit in well with the subject of this thread, although I have to admit to enjoying quite a few of them (as you might have guessed from my avatar image).
I dunno, I felt like Shattered Memories was the best of the post Team Silent games. Downpour had some really cool ideas, but it became a slog after the first few hours.As a major OG Silent Hill series fan, (yes, even the Room!) I have to say that out of all the attempts from third party devs to make a decent SH game, this one certainly came the closest.
Were some of the sections over done and janky? Sure. Did the chase sequences just get tedious and frustrating? Yup.
But they definitely got the atmosphere bang on and the game play was very reminiscent of SHs golden PS1/PS2 era.
Actually this post this has made me jump in for another run!
Agreed a great game, but the remaster was fucking atrocious during the cut scenes because the original ugly cut scenes were used and not remastered like the rest of the game, which ultimately spoilt the game for me.I had to double-check the title of this thread. This is not shit, sir.
I was disappointed that more people didn't like Shattered Memories. It wasn't perfect, but it did some really unique things and took GREAT advantage of the Wii at the time. I thought it was awesome that you'd get those really shitty phone calls through the Wii controller speakers. I adored SM. I was very excited for Downpour too tbh and I felt like it had a really strong opening and first few hours, but man, once you got to the caves and then having to go back and forth in the town/streets, I was just ready for it to be done. And then I was disappointed to learn that you could get the different ending by literally loading the last hour of the game and making a singular different choice.I'll give you that, SM was pretty great!
