Amazing. That's the only word I've got. And also, Orange Peel.

A fun, and very weird experience. I loved the ideas at play - even if the gameplay got to be very repetitive and trivial. I left the Foundation DLC unfinished because it just felt like more of the same.

Game hard-crashed (to the point I had to unplug PC) twice.
Could be the new rig's issue admittedly, but didn't happen with any other game I tested on new PC and seems to be triggered by specific location ingame.
After crash saves got corrupted and while mission list was a possible option and I wasn't that far ahead from mission start, it managed to merge progress..
So main/side mission status, abilities, loadout got reset, but not key-items, side-mission triggers, boxes, locked doors, etc.
Fun way to softlock huh.
All things considered the issues outweigh interest, so, unfortunately, I doubt I'll return.

For now it look amaizing and it's really fun, and also challenging

Really enjoyable stuff, waited to play this on PS5 with the Ultimate Edition and think that was the way forward. Platinum trophy obtained which was fairly straight forward and a fun twisty story that I enjoyed playing through.

That was a tough one.
Not only tough regarding all the damn instances with overpowering enemy waves, but also it's going to be tough for me to judge this game objectively and rate it fairly.
This game is incredible, the physics, the feel of it all. It's sooo GOOD and fun to control. HA! Get it? Also as mentioned the graphics are sensational.
But I haven't gotten so grumpy at action design and its difficulty in ages. I was screaming in annoyed agony after the millionth death, framed by the beautiful (ray traced, all systems maxed out baby) marble structures, office hallways and funghi caverns.
And sadly it is also a bit boring, narratively (Alan Wake seems a bit lame) and way too many logs, that most of the time don't serve any purpose? Dr Darling is, well, on the border to total cheesiness. A lot is repetitive and especially when you repeat the same room so many times and still get creamed each time. It doesn't seem balanced at all and there is no difficulty setting.
I am so torn. A lot of frustration, but I had a great and fascinating time with it.
