Thought this looked jaw-dropping a few months back... never played the prequel but i almost had a hayday when i saw it was OUT at wal-mart the other day... 'til i remembered i was broke.

Anyway, the reviews i've been looking at seem so unbeleivable (not unbeleivable in a good way, i mean UN-beleivable). Especially if fans have been waiting over a decade (i imagine game reviewers have most likely played the first which was supposedly a masterpiece) so i kind of think something fishy is going on. Sucks that great games get bashed and overhyped ones get praised. I'm starting to be done with reviews, ESPECIALLY IGN reviews.

Well I'm much less satisfied, it's a good game but it could've been a great one. What bothers me most is the story & narrative, although I find the game lacking in all fields. It feels as if the developers were too familiar with their story and have forgotten the player, yet it also tries too hard (often when it shouldn't). The worst thou is Alice's voice, which is of a grown women. You can hear it, a clear 50ish, and just this is enough to ruin the whole experience really.. Psychonauts had a twisted story with an incredible narrative that was easy to fall for, Alice should've been like it.

I realize I've had my hopes too high for this one, still I'll enjoy it anyway, for what it is: a 3/5 for me and just nice.

Probably kids who didn't even play the original one. They're probably halo fans or something.

I must add, the first one is not, and was not a masterpiece. It was a good game for it's time, but is actually overrated (9.4 ign, just no).

TBH with you? Both the first and second are pretty much of the same quality. They are very much alike in all ways possible. They should've both had the same scores, (in my opinion somewhere around 3/5, or 7/10).

The second is scoring 7.4 on metacritic, PC version, I think it's fair.

The game is incredible, here's some quick gameplay:


And don't judge :S. I couldn't figure out how to use the umbrella on a controller, it kept telling me how with the keyboard . Also, who else finds the dodge mechanic to be AWESOME?

^^^ This! The first was a blast - and even though its exceptionally dated at this time - I still suggest everyone go find it on the cheap and give it a play through. It was a lot of fun! Can't wait to scrape up the dough for this one. I MAY wait for a steam sale on it though.... Im not in a rush to be "the first" to play through it or anything, and I find PC games drop in price pretty fast these days...

Just some food for thought~

I'm at the queen's castle right now. I've been playing for at least 6+ hours and I'm only 3 chapters complete.
