thanks for the info.. any advice as to Silent Hill? that is the other one i am contemplating
I got you.
For $25 it's a buy. That's what the price should have been. It has some good ideas, great style and is unique in it's own way. That said, I'm not a huge fan of grinding, and to have the easiest time with this game, you have to. You'll build a ritual to tackling each area, mine is to hunt for the save room, and immediately save. Then I slowly build my map, then I start gathering my pieces. It's a safe way to go about it, because being reckless will lead to frustration.
But anyway, I got it at launch, don't regret it but it isn't for everyone. But for $25 it is an easy rec. Just know that you will be frustrated at one point or another, and that it is stressful at times. But that's the point, in the old Resident Evil, holy shit I can't save right now/i'm out of items/slots sense.
