However it's not at all what I originally thought, but it is still an amazing game (hence the 10 rating).
First off, it so much like Resident Evil 4 and it's great. I personally loved Resident Evil 4, but didn't like the two latest entries. With it's close quarters, sparse ammo, and dangerous enemies, it can really make for some heart pounding moments and genuine fear as you are trying to evade or dodge certain enemies.
One thing that may irk some people, are the unforgiving saves. There are some locations I've encountered where death can result in having to replay several minutes, in one case 15 minutes was lost, due to unforgiving checkpoints. I personally like this feature, as it makes general fights and the feeling of dread much higher, as there are high risks for death. While it isn't too frequent that this happens, those moments that it does can really drive you nuts.
The story here is absent, or sometimes cringe-worthy, but that's okay. I personally love a great story in a game, but after coming from Destiny, this at least makes an effort. While the story isn't great, the gameplay and tension really make up for it, and a lot of the story content can be picked up from side intel and collectibles, making it vital to read this information. Some people may not like this as well, but I find it a great way to slow the pace of the game.
Lastly, the graphics here are very good in my opinion. I see several people complaining about such miniscule things, or comparing it to "x" game, but I don't see why. This game may not be the "greatest game ever" in terms of graphics, but it definitely masters the atmosphere, lighting, and fog within the game and the graphics work great for what it is.
If you are a fan of survival horror, high difficulty, survival, and tension-filled moments, this game is for you. If you don't like having to conserve ammo, difficult games, sneaking around, and the way older survival horror games were played, this definitely isn't the game for you.… Expand

I also found some issues with the menus being in white text, making it hard to read at times.
Overall, it stays true to the board game, but still has a ways to go with it's interface and bugs. Wish there was an online as well, but as a single player experience it is still loads of fun.… Expand
