Title: I want to like Deadly Premonition, but I'm having a hard time doing so
Posted: June 06, 2010 (05:16 PM)
It's such a quirky game, very much in line with the source material it's clearly based on, but the actual play mechanics is bugging the crap out of me. I'm not going into detail about it, since I might do a review, but, this game does some things right, but it also does a bunch of things wrong. I could actually do a review of it now, because I have a feeling things won't change dramatically over the course of the game's story, but I actually want to complete the whole thing before making any final judgement. Shame, too, because this could have been a great steal at $20.

Here's a very early cutscene from the game, right as Agent York arrives in town:

I didn't know this game was almost decent. From what I hear it's The Room of videogames.

Any game with a bar named "The Galaxy of Terror" is a win in my book.

It's only a reference in name, though. When you go inside, it's just a normal bar. No worms. >_>

If you're complaining about the game mechanics of Deadly Premonition you're playing it wrong.

I'm... finding it hard to believe there's a wrong way to play this game. Unless it somehow improves on the Hard difficulty setting.

Argh! I just ran into another problem! The ghosts/zombies sometimes glitch and fall under the floor when they try to flash-step.

>_<;;;

I couldn't even get through the cinematic. I haven't heard voice acting that bad in a while.

Wow, I guess I shave too much, because I didn't know he could grow a beard.

I have a horrible habit of not changing clothes, though. It's pretty nasty seeing those flies circle your character while you're chatting with people.
