This series has been praised left and right by hermits (and no, not only Sniper) and I cant figure out why. I havent played 2033 but I'm halfway through Last Light and the game is average at best. I think only the setting (wich has been done better before) is somewhat interesting. Everything else is just plain... ugh
The A.I. is probably the worst I have ever seen in an FPS EVER! Enemies (mainly the mutants) get stuck often, human enemies cant see you when you're right in front of them, they take time to react when you're discovered, etc, etc.
Graphics are nice but the environments are so plain boring to look at that it doesnt matter really. Yes, I know the game is supposed to look ugly and decrepit, after all its a post-apocalyptic setting but thats no excuse. Rage for ex had nice environments and did the all "post-apocalyptic Mad Max inspired" setting much much better imo. Killzone 1-3 were also supposed to look like a warzone but that didnt stop everyone from bashing it and calling it "greyzone" or w/e.
It baffles me how some call it an "hardcore" FPS (nod at Sniper) when its hardly a good game. Hermits often cry and cry about "blah blah consolized games blah blah" and praises this shit? How?
Help me understand
edit: Damn, just realized GS gave it a 9... how dafuq was that even possible?
