Actually, I pretty much loved the whole game. That "final third" that sucked really felt only like about 2 hours. I suppose it was longer, but it didn't feel like a third. And it didn't suck as much as expected - the whole part on the ship was a blast for me. Prior to that? Less so. Low gravity? Oh god, that part was tedious. It reminded me of making it to the Citadel in HL2, but there you were superpowerful, making the change in level design intriguing because there was a change in your powers. Here? It just sucked. Sucked hard.
I just couldn't stand the suit capabilities being all available from the very start. I felt like I had just brought the console down and enabled noclip, invisibility, and god mode.
See, I had some really tense battles where I'd sneak in, do something stupid, and run for my life trying to cloak. Or one very intense part where I was sneaking around a base with guys everywhere, a helicopter over me, half the buildings blown apart by the copter (while I was in them no less), and no missles. My health was constantly low, I was constantly in a panic, and it was pretty much the definition of urgent.
Not all the game was like that, of course, and as a whole I felt the game kind of lacked meat. I don't feel like I went to too many places or fought in too many battles.
I think you need to turn your sensitivity up maybe or practice the motion
You're talking to a guy that usually goes into the console to raise his sensitivity because often the options menu peaks out lower than I like it.
Perceived difficulty and lack of intuitiveness can be chalked up to opinion but claiming that it's useless is just wrong as others have pointed out. Okay okay, you said it might be useless
I said they should have demonstrated it wasn't useless in the demo.
I'm in a similar boat with just too much digital entertainment. On my plate is Mafia 2, Amnesia, Civ 5, Battlestar Galactica (finally watching and loving this), Boardwalk Empire, Always Sunny, missed Futurama eps, Weeds, unfinished Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2, and of course the Daily Show. Plus like 6 weddings between now and spring. And I worked 12 hours today. Good thing I don't have to take care of a home or lawn.
Real life sucks. I miss being in school and having only to make time for video games, sleep and girls. I don't think I'll get to Boardwalk Empire until later this week.
Almost 6 pages of bitching and half a hundred posts from beamer to say he doesnt much enjoy this game, ok we got the point, move on
No one will let me! Haha.
You should probably leave it unopened and buy the vastly superior PC version instead.
When I bought it at launch I didn't have a PC that'd run it.
Now I do, so there's a decent chance I may.
Of course, the computer's in the office, which is kind of dark by the time I get home and the sun has moved to the other side of the apartment and, thanks to the PC, the room is kind of warm, yet the tv is in a perpetually bright and sunny room that's covered in windows. Hard to pry me from that. Except for games that need darkness. Like the half an hour I played of Amnesia!
