Well I think he's overreacting a bit. It's a great game once the ball gets rolling. The generator part sucks because it's hard but that's the point. I'd say the difficulty is what makes the game fun. Whenever a game offers stealth like this I say 'screw it' and go out guns blazing. I can't do that anymore because I get f*cked up every time. I actually have to think about what I'm doing now.

I'm not overreacting at all, everything I said is 100% accurate to my gameplay experience.

There is nothing "hard" about this game. The only reason I ever died was from poorly implemented game mechanics that didn't function properly. My inputs consistently dropped, I'd be literally right behind an enemy moving slowly ready to press triangle and he sees me seemingly out of nowhere. I hide in a complete dark corner where it's not possible to be seen, however someone sees me 3 rooms away. I press triangle to shiv in the neck when a zombie grabs me and it works maybe 40% of the time.

After 5 hours of frustration I quit. I personally think the gameplay is the worst I've played all year. Graphics/story/characters were interesting, gameplay was like a 5 year old programmed it.

If you are liking it then that's cool, but I certainly did not.

I've never experienced those problems. My inputs work, enemies only see me when I'm in the open or heard, and I can shiv just fine. BUT I have no way to tell how buggy your game is so that's a fair point.

Everyone's entitled to their opinion, I'm not saying you have to like the game. I was just letting someone, who hasn't played it, know that it isn't necessarily atrocious or really awful.

It's possible my game is bugged. It has happened since the beginning of the game, maybe faulty disc.

All I know is how it is playing straight garbage. Hmm, makes me wonder if it is indeed bugged.

I haven't had any input problems either. Everytime I hit a button, what is supposed to happen happens. I am enjoying it a lot. I am only about halfway through right now but it's cool. I don't think it is quite the masterpiece that it was hyped up to be, but I like it a lot.

It's almost certain that your's is bugged. My copy plays perfectly and the game is awesome. No one I know who has bought the game (30+ people) has had the same issues.

Is your controller maybe also the problem??? Sometimes those buttons stop responding that well..

The vast majority of people who get paid for a living to know a quality game when they play one reviewed this game spot on. It is exceptional in an array of ways. My only complaint is there is not more to play. Great storytelling, fun and appropriate gameplay mechanics, superb audio and graphics. Perfect survival horror game.

The story was better then a lot of movies I've seen lately. Smartly written, the beginning wraps in very well to the conclusion which lets you take away what you will form it.

I like that the game is set 20 years after the collapse of society. There is no discovery and adaptation that weighs down the majority of stories in this genre. Entertainment culture has people very aware of zombies and surviving right now so it is an advantage to pick up the game at a point when the environment and path to living is mature in method.

The juxtaposition of other survivors and infected as the antagonists is on point for the circumstances established. One is far more threatening and dangerous while the others threat is omnipresent and absolute. It creates a starkly contrasting and unique tone upon encountering differing threats that translates to several different approaches to avoiding or solving them and the resulting gameplay experience.

The way the game plays is better then any other game in this genre has been able to achieve. Things are not easy, you are not John Rambo, you have to think, plan and be prepared more. The real time crafting and switching, the pack size limitations, the scarcity of resources, limited visibility in the environments and limited agility and maneuverability add the perfect kind of tension many games like this simply never achieve. It goes a long way to keep things interesting especially when they are at their most intense.

The lighting and shadow uses collaborate perfectly with the sound effects and environment designs to create an array of convincing sets conveying ambiance few other games have managed so well, especially in the dark areas. The face models are not messed up, which is almost the norm for games trying to say something these days. The progression is meandering yet to the point based on the game play objectives. All of the secondary dialog is very interesting, most of it a perspective of someone who is alien to the remnants of our world.

Have not played the multiplayer yet, maybe tonight.

Is it possible for one disc to get a bug that affects gameplay? That seems kind of odd. I could understand if a disc got scratched, but how could the code on the disc get changed for only one disc?

No idea.

Been playing Animal Crossing: A New Leaf a lot. It's a neat game because there's only a certain amount of activites you can do in the day and then you run out of things to do until the next day. The game has a real day/night system where if it's 2pm in real life it's 2pm in the game, shops close at night, etc.

Very fun/addicting to pick up for an hour or two, complete the daily things and set things up for the next day.

I also ordered FF13 from Gamefly, going to try it once more see if I can get into it.
