PROs & CONs:
✅ Inventory system is beautiful (large space (upgradeable), stuff separated in tabs (items, crafting, key))
✅ Good map system. Icons get marked, cleared areas show blue
✅ For breakables you get interaction toggle instead having to manually switch to knife (you still can shoot)
✅ Great world design
✅ Fun boss fights
✅ Fun exploration
✅ Game genre separation (each part of the area/goal feels like a different game genre) [shooter, horror, puzzling, escape]…
✅ Mommy milkers and daughters 😊 *Mods ahem.*
✅ NG+ weaponry
✅ Point system great for next run unlocks
❔ No storage, but you pretty much use merchant as storage.
❔Story kinda confuse? (I kinda lost track of some story elements…)
❌ Character upgrade initially not clear enough
❌ A lot of back / forwards running to get everything.
❌ Full explore mommy milkers milf and her thotty daughers map before exiting as yo cannot return to it.
Only annoyance I had my first playthrough was the character upgrades / food… first food I got it told me to bring it to duke. So I thought it was another item to sell for currency… but alas… not it was not. I sold my meat and thus lost my chance to get few character upgrades…
There was also a lot of back n forwards running to get all the treasures… but wasn’t much of an issue as you get some shortcuts and such that are well placed.
Other than that. Game is not extremely atmospheric like RE2 remake as whole, but. Instead we get sections of game that are just atmospheric enough depending on genre it takes place in. The “horror” area of this game had great atmosphere. Puzzling keeps you tense enough, shooter part is simple and fun gunfight with variety of enemies to deal with. Escape part of the game is tense enough.
Difficulty & Grind: Since I’m binging through RE franchises I’m long done playing with limited ammunition. So I rolled with inf ammo. And gotta say.. I did die on few boss fights and few elite fights. Puzzles are pretty straightforward and some are pretty fun. You get the interesting ball rolling puzzles, some typical puzzling and some picture based treasure hunting. Anyhow.. I played first run on normal and it did offer me challenge now and then.
