ok, so yo, i'm a Playstation collector so I spend way to much times in fleamarkets scavaging around the old games stores just trying to find the classics, but also those real hidden gems. And I stubbled upon this game:
I remember seeing this game when I was kid and I couldn't get it at the time because i was too young for an rated M game so I just got Tail-Concerto instead (good investment btw), so i never once thought of this game again.
I find it like around last weekend thinking "Oh man this is that game i never got to play!" And bought it, it was only 8 bucks, no big deal. I discovered this game was on PC first, wasn't sure how it would actually translate well onto game console, especially seeing this game came out in 1997 and I had the great fear that the controls were going to be completely broken.
I was wrong about every negative assumption I had.
This game is actually very, VERY enjoyable to play? Which I sort of had the hope for (1 being able to now play this as an adult and 2 seeing that is got very positive ratings). Like the game is plays smooth and the graphics are very aesthetically pleasing. The controls are actually easy to understand and get the hang of and tbh the live action cutscenes are very well done??? Like the costuming is nice, the actors do their job pretty nicely and everything. The level designs are very nice too like they're pleasing to look at. Now i'll be honest some things do blend in to well with others which can cause some disarray of things and put you in front of a brick wall, in fact this game is actually at points as CLEAR as a brick wall. You do not have a lot of directions, it's all up to you to figure out what in the sam hell is going on, but your exploration of the areas pays off when you find hidden secrets and weapons to make your progress through the levels more entertaining.
The game though, while it honestly isn't the best darn thing, is very entertaining to say the least, like i'm not bored and i feel the need to push on to uncover the story (even know it's some 1984 rip-off). Plus it's very innovating for it's time. The areas can be messed with and destroyed and if you try to plow through the game like a homicidal maniac it WRECKS you. The game wants you to take your time and figure out the situations that you are in and go at them in a smart way.
Very entertaining game like i guess a good 4 out of 5 rating
