Okay, I'm about 8 hours into the game or so, and so far the game is extremely good. Shooting is tight, weapons are for the most part balanced and fun to use(the main assault rifle with Armor Piercing mod is comfortably the best all around weapon if you can headshot reliably), voice acting is excellent for the most part, character and environmental design is amazing, and whoever they got to do their engineering models...GG.
The story is extremely entertaining, bouncing back and forth between horror elements, some surprisingly good comedy, a little too melodramatic humanity moments, and of course ridiculous action and deliberately over the top sci-fi/fantasy scenes.
One crash to desktop so far, but none since. Not sure what it was either, may have been updated out at some point? In general the game seems to run extremely well, i7-6770, 32GB Ram, M2 format SSD, Win 8.1, 144hz 2560x1440 monitor, ultra settings, no motion blur.
One question though, for people who have the game, and are reasonably far along into it:
If BJ, or any human, for that matter, is on a runaway vehicle of some kind, about to crash, would he say:
B. "Oh Fuck!"
C. "Oh God NOOO!!"
D. "Cock......Cock." (Voiced in utter deadpan)
Some of the dialogue is hilarious for all the wrong reasons.
Perk system seems better this time around than the first game, it isn't quite as ridiculous in terms of the number or style of kills required to unlock some upgrades.
Another thing: Depending on your eyesight, maybe DON'T set the brightness as low as the game suggests, there have been a couple areas where I really couldn't see anything at all of the enemies until they started shooting or I bumped into them in the dark; gray and black models with almost no footstep or ambient sounds, and effectively pitch black areas of the map. Admittedly, it looks cool, but you can basically get instakilled on higher difficulty, or waste enough hp/armor that you might as well reload anyway.
Definitely worth playing, although I can see the argument for waiting to buy on sale when all the DLC is out, and also on sale. I bought earlier than normal largely because
of all the death of single player games talk lately. Plus, I wanted to play.
