It start fast with a trow in the action just like Wolfenstein. And the graphics are impressive from this moment. And one of the reason why not a 9 or 10 as final score: The Xbox controller need to be disconnected to play as pc with K&M.
The graphics are very good. I can say better than Wolfenstein but on this point it could only be matter of taste. Since this game is not only about shooting demons but also to find your way and explore maps, the graphics make this part of the game very cool. But the graphics are not perfect, I feel that some part of the game has not the same quality or the same finish compare to the best of it. I'm sorry if I said this game is the graphic king of SP because after thinking about it, I think I cannot say it's better than Frostbite games with vehicle and levolution. But on some aspect, I still say that the graphics are best around; Like for example the blood and guts.
The gameplay is a mix of shooting, exploring, climbing and jumping and a bit of puzzle and also somehow puzzle because finding your way around is not that easy even with the mini-maps. There is also the secret that can be search if you are bigger fan than me. The shooting gameplay is very good. It mix ammo management, weapons management(what gun to use of what demons) and target priority(Which monster to kill first). All this with great guns that all make sense, even the pistol. The guns are so good, especially my preferred one, the no recoil, no reload AR. The demons are very cool to fight with. This is fast-paced battle that require good players to move on the next level. And some monster like the boss and the mini-boss, those that are bigs, are so nice graphically and so satisfying to kill. At the difficulty of my version, which is hard to very hard for normal people, it's very challenging and I'm better be smart and very fast to beat all this wave of maniac demons. It's not like you can only run and gun, you need to use a technique for each demons and like I said previously in this paragraph, the good guns for each demons. Than come the exploring part of the gameplay and like I said with these nice graphics, the voyage has been so cool for 10 hours of gaming on this game. Most of the level or maps are so nice and there is a lot of stuff to interact with like the door and the stuff you can find around. Plus some puzzle that you need to find the solution. And it would be very good to point the good work they did on the mini-maps when escape is pushed. They're so nice but not perfect. Than come the climbing and jumping gameplay that make the game hard for most people and not too much repetitive. It has been a lot of fun to beat this somehow puzzle and climb one KM high. And all this climbing and jumping work so well. Finally about the gameplay: The ammo and stuff management: Stuff that you need to find around the maps to keep advancing in the game. This aspect, similar to Wolfenstein have been a lot of fun too.
Of course the game is working with very good sound and ok music in my version. The sound is for sure a great piece of work and it has been very immersive.
The interface and the menu is also very good. Everything work fine. Of course I've seen better as a key rebinder.
And the game come also with a very good mp that I tried for 15 minutes. Not sure why they all whine about this mp. They must be gay or something.
And for a price, it also come with this very good Snapmap hub and creation tools that appear to make a lot of sense.
But the launcher is a joke: You need to restart two times the game to play the mp and the logo cannot be skippable and for these reason plus the fact that the game is bit repititive, I cannot give a score higher than 8.8.
So the final score for Gaming 24 opinion is 8.8. So a great piece of software!
Come with a mp and Snapmap
I did not finish the game when I wrote the review. I though I was at the end but I was 2 level before it.
I want to say in this edit that after thinking about it, I give this game a 9.9/10. The only reason why I don't give it a 10 is the retardation(Cannot skip logo, mp launcher)
