The fact that you sometimes beat me to posting the easy allies reviews annoys me

I'm thinking about getting this, but I want to avoid spoilers.

What's the verdict? Is it any good?

Edit
I just Google'd and found this on the wiki:

On Metacritic, the game has an average score of 80 out of 100, based on 68 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[62]

OK just watched it

"There's nothing surprising about the themes"
"There are times where its handling of these themes can feel a little on the nose"
"Sleight of hand to make some plot devices work"
"Character and camera movement are a bit stiff"
"Moments when dialogue options can be a little vague, prompting our character to say something that doesn't at all match what we intended"

Yup, it's another David Cage game.

EDIT: facepalming so hard rn



Good job Dave, appropriate a Martin Luther King quote, that'll get those racism allegations off your back XD. I cannot with this guy.

I'm enjoying it so far.

Yeah the themes & topics aren't anything we haven't seen before but what I've played has been good. So well executed but a bit unoriginal so far? I think that's fair. The graphics and facial animations are fantastic.

Minor spoilers

I have gotten myself killed 3 or 4 times. >.<



Shot in the back multiple times (This was in the first 5 minutes, I LOL'D)
Shot in the head
& Shot in the head a second time.
And maybe beaten to death once? (It cut to black before I saw anything)

I'm so hilariously bad at this game


MAJOR Storyline spoiler, Do not read if you haven't played yet
There is a plot point with a kid being beaten by her drug addict father, I did nothing...

...and the kid got beaten to death off screen.
I did not not see that coming.

1st Minor bit I've only been killed once so far. I tried helping the cops at the police station stop the self destructing android and got terminated.

Major bit I took the gun and killed Todd(the dad)

I got shot in the back multiple times in the hostage thing at the beginning & shot in th station as you did.


Major spoilers
Kara is now perma dead in my story. The female android on the menu had a go at me for it. "You let Kara & Alice die?! How could you?!"

I read a review so I knew I'd end up looking after a child NPC at some point and didn't want to, I hate baby sitting NPCs in games, so yeah I pretty much did nothing on purpose and let the kid die.
Of course I didn't know that Kara's story would end there...

But I like that I can fuck up that badly and keep going, I'm already looking forward to playing the game again to see the paths I didn't take.

^ I usally agree with the opinons of Jim Sterling, but I disagree. i'm really enjoying this game. (It just seems like he wanted to have a go at the Developer.)

My fuck ups continue;

The woman on the main menu asked if we were friends and I said 'No'. She looked so hurt. My feels.

Also I shot a android in the head because I thought it would get me info I needed (it makes sense in game) but everyone's mad at me for it.
Who'd a thunk it.

Major Spoilers I barely trust humans after events at that one dude's place. I had another casualty at the tv station due to dumbass "allies" not letting me handle the guards.

(SPOILER) The baby sitting is extremely bare bones. You don't have to like, manage her hunger bar, or worry about her during action scenes or anything. Its primarily about what story choices you make, keeping in mind you have a young girl with you. Like, maybe you'll try to sleep in this place, instead of that one.

I enjoyed the game. Had some shocks and surprises. Some very well done scenes. Pleasantly surprised to see Clancy Brown in the opening credits.
Not gonna comment on any racial parallels and how well it treats the material in relation to them, cause I'm extremely underqualified to speak on that.

I'll play it again, make different decisions. Apparently I got an ending for Kara that only 3% of people got.
