          The best thing about the Working Joes is the hint that Sevastopol's mainframe might only be pretending to be retarded, and it genuinely enjoys hurting and frightening people now that it's allowed to.

              It was, but some of the things the Joes say hints that Apollo might not exactly be as indifferent as the initially dull reputation of the Joes would lead you to believe. My opinion, anyway.

        They're cheap mass-produced androids that are wirelessly controlled by a central AI, but looking and acting non-human is also a selling point because some customers didn't like the idea of androids that could blend in with humans.

      Ya I never understood the "too long" complains.
      Not only is a blind playthrough roughly 15-20hrs, which is pretty good for a game.
      But the game keeps raising the stakes and keeps introducing new elements to it. So I never connected with the "too long for what it presents" side either.

      I enjoyed every second of it. Played it three times and 100% it as well. Something I usually don't bother with.

            It didn't feel that way. I guess since things were progressing and you were interacting with humans more. I'd say after the alien was gone and the android apocalypse happened is when the game peaked. Once you go into the alien nest is when the game just got monotonous.

        It's less about it being too long and more it just loses itself at a certain point. They should have started to wrap things up after the core nest. the second ship and the multiple spacewalks and getting kidnapped, going into another nest and fighting all those humans was too much especially when the game started dropping all the worst cliches one after the other at that point.

      This. I played it first on hard and I can say normal mode is probably boring as fuuuug. Nightmare mode was awesome. Also, nightmare was easier than hard in most ways. The AI becomes so "predictive" that if you do stupid shit the alien goes into "wtf is this retard doing?" mode and you can sprint between objectives. I shit you not anons.

        Yeah sure, I can appreciate that but it doesn't make it fun to play, though. At least for me. I'll be fair and say I generally don't play these kind of games. But I really liked the first bit with the Synths. Once the Alien was a thing I felt like I couldn't move ten feet before getting ganked. I know it's a git gud situation, but still, it wasn't fun to me.

          Sounds like the 'true random' version of the alien AI is for you. Normally it's leashed to you, so it's always reasonably on-hand to stalk your area but in a reasonably fair way. True random means fewer encounters but some have much less warning.

          I had the exact opposite opinion. I loved the Alien parts and the synths felt stupid because you can just run past them all.

    it's a bad game, looks and sounds great though
    gameplay is barely a step above walking sim tier
    the alien is more of an annoyance because of how limited the player and it's movement options are you can figure out where it will be or you can play on hard and it will just turn up at random and instantly kill you so you can replay the last 15 minutes of walking.
    the main campaign is pretty long and feels like a slog because it doesn't mix it up much, imo the best way to play this is the nostromo dlc you basically get everything the main game has to offer in about 40 mins which is how long the it takes for the game to start getting boring and repetitive.
    i'll probably just get flamed because there is some kind of isolation elitist's that always post in these threads, so yes I have played it and the ign review was spot on fags

          Most of the time you really can't get too lost, and there are several areas that are one-and-done, where you can't return once you're through them. Later in the game you can explore a large part of the station and even return to the part where you first enter the station, though.

        I mean I do appreciate having goals and subgoals to direct my gameplay, but yeah I generally prefer something more like a Metroidvania game structure where the map opens up as you explore, gain new abilities, and unlock doors and such. AI does open up large parts of the main areas for you to freely explore at certain points in the game, but it would be neat for it to be even more open.

      You have to hold your breath in lockers, yeah. But lockers are risky in general and give a false sense of security; you're usually better off crouching under/behind furniture and just staying out of the alien's line of sight that way.

    If you are an Alien fag probably.
    Keep in mind that the game refuses to teach you how to play, on purpose.
    Story is even more repair the valve, collect the key, access the engine room than the first Dead Space. The characters are absolutely lifeless and incredibly flat.
    Also in the beginning the game tricks into you thinking it's a metroidvania, but don't backtrack because it's all for show: you will unlock the items to really do (some) exploration by the end of the game.
    At which point the insta-death design of the game will have already suck the will to live out of you.
