To whoever advised me to play this game, thank you. It's amazing.
To the anons tired of this lame ass industry, handholding, and the lack of actual survival horror games play this. Just use https://strategywiki.org/wiki/Siren to get some direction on some of the most cryptic improbable puzzles without getting spoiled if you get stuck.
>but what's the game's about?
It's like silent hill/resident evil but actually difficult, where the enemies run to you instead of awkwardly and slowly walking in your direction when spotted, they have guns and rifles sometime killing you in one bullet, have patrols, schedules, can alert others, it's complex and fresh. Game has a mission based format with a branching system and your actions have an impact on the next missions/chapters.
>what about the vibe, is it scary?
It's up here with silent hill and fatal frame in term of horror. Game still looks great with atmospheric effects, lighting, weather. Soundtrack and noises are working together to create that oppressive and unnerving ambiance silent hill games are well known for. Notably silent hill 1 director and a couple of renowned members of the silent team worked on it.
So what's/v/'s consensus on this game?
Why isn't siren 2 available on ps4 and was it as good?
Is siren blood curse worth a play?
I don't have a lot of hope for this thread but if I get at least one person to play it it's cool. The thread that made me buy the game barely had 20 posts before getting archived.
