(Played before 2023)
One of the best storytelling games that I've ever enjoyed and absolutely great. The world they created and the characters just ooze with that Twin Peaks vibe which gives it a surreal tone, and the combat thrives in a chaotic environment of explosions, thrown items with your powers, and more. I do think the combat can drag on sometimes, with not as much variety as I would've liked since the power scaling can feel weird sometimes. I also think that the DLCs are fun, but the new mechanics and items they add in aren't that interesting in late-game. I also feel like Jesse's story is put on pause for the rest of the story a little too long, especially since her main motivation is to find her missing brother. But Remedy are master-class world builders of the weird and surreal, and it shines in this game with an all-star class.
