post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
I bought it cause it was on sale and I know it looks good (main reason I bought it) but never really listened to anyone say anything about the story. lol.


so is the story any good?

Uhhh.. I liked it. It's a very linear game but... I'd say it's a good story.

Protip: DX9 > DX11 when it comes to FPS.

Also, spoiler? Surprisingly it's not really a scary game besides that part where you're getting chased by gigantic *******s in a library.

Also expect stuff to jump out at you.

I've heard it's got a better story than Crysis, so if you're looking for a hardware stressing game it's probably better than Crysis. I've heard mixed opinions about it though.

I thought it was a really cool game. Theres a few parts that will freak you our a bit. Play it with the lights out.

I've heard that it's a pretty enjoyable game.

From what I've heard, pretty much the only game which can stress your hardware but still be fun at the same time

It was a lot different then i thought. Think stalker with NO open world elements in it, its got a OK story and varied environments. Its worth a play through if only to admire the graphics.

i think it was a really good game, the only downside that it was to linear.. would have liked a more open world sort of thing, like go to the surface to find special items to sell or something like that.
but the story is good and graphics are good even on medium and better on high.
