Pro reviews seem fine with it, only unhappy with the closed world which is a bit unfair as the story seems consistent anyway
i haven't played either of the games, but it seems that from the people's perspective, the gameplay is still dull and they utterly butchered the story
without spoiling anything, they basically shat on the first game's legacy for the sake of a bad revenge plot
From what ive seen, its a hallway simulator with all the latest tenets of the New Religion. I will watch a playthrough of it though, looks like a train wreck.
The first one was fine. Dull at times, and with stupid zombies again. But it was beautiful, it probably was the game that pushed ps3 to its computational limits.
I won't buy the second game, we all know why. I won't look it up or watch it either.
I have actually played TLOU2 and it was a great game. Most of the bad reviews are from review bombs from idiots who haven't even played the game relying on misinformed leaks (as you can see from this thread) and/or people that wanted a game that plays it safe but also has an amazing story like the first, which it's impossible to have both. I really enjoyed the story (my only complaint is one section of the game was a little underwhelming from a story perspective but it makes more sense later) and I really appreciate the risk they took to try to deliver a great story that could compete with the TLOU and I think it paid off. As long as you have an open mind for how the story could play out, you will enjoy it. The game play was really fun and expanded upon the first game very naturally. The environments in the game are consistently breathtaking and also lend themselves so well to game play. There are quite a few sections of the game with more open areas than in TLOU (though not open world) that give you a lot interesting ways to approach stealth/combat. I guess the only other issue anyone might have is the inclusion of LGBT characters. There are multiple LGBT characters in the game (and were already a part of the series prior to TLOU2 so Idk what people were expecting) and they aren't forced into it as some say; the characters and their relationships fit very naturally. My suggestion: if LGBT stuff bothers you, get over yourself and enjoy a great game, or just don't play it.
