Dec 9, 2012If any game deserves the title "overrated" its Slender
The game for the first few times is infact scary, but after multiple play throughs the game becomes predictable and more of a race then a horror game. The game relies heavily on jump scares, which is fun the first few times, but then gets more annoying then scary.
Also with the most recent update the game has gotten extremely laggy for certain computers even when toning down the detail of everything. This was tested on 6 different computers, so its not just my laptop. The game has also taken the fun of the slenderman and destroyed it in two, most people don't know what the slendermans real origins are except he was in a scary game. This is more of a personal thing, but hey, its my review.
Im sorry about being such a downer, but there are many other horror games out there that do better then slender. SCP Containment Breach, Ib, Ao Oni, Witches House, Witch, and Yumi Nikki to name a few. I'd recommend you get the game if youre into indie horror games, but it will get boring after a while.
