Anything that is not strictly the game playing part of this game (usually the most interesting parts of games to me) I think is terrible. there’s a part at the beginning where some meat man says “I’ve located the target” and the female radio backup voice says “are you sure” and I’ve just been really irritated at the game ever since. Why would he go out of his way to say those words if he wasn’t sure. Why would you write this interaction this way.
I’m sick to high heaven of hard asses saying dumb military lingo dialogue about “retrieving the package” etc, it’s got the same characters as in ever other videogame with the same voice actors etc, I hate sci fi videogames with their unreal engine looking overly elabrorate floor and wall panels and glowing hologram screens and cables running everywhere in every single structure, every space ship is an overly designed lens flare machine, firearms of course have somehow gotten bulkier and heavier. and the worst part, michael bay movie music-sounds to try and drum up cheesy ass emotions in bad cinematics where a man gravely intones of the Enemy Threat but with the implication that you are going to Take Care of Business for Freedom. it’s american anime is what it is. and it’s bad enough I’m getting starcraft 2 flashbacks. I never got into the old games, but knowing they exist I can’t stop thinking how much better vague dialogue boxes and abstract early-mid 90s pc pixel art, at least for the command center bullshit, would be
the game looks beautiful in the screenshots remote has been posting on steam though.
