PROS

Love that the character is voiced by RON PERLMAN suits character perfectly and made me warm to him.

RON PERLMAN

The world has a very dark,eerie,feel that makes the world alive and interesting also does give a sense of anticipation as never know what in each room. The way story told is awesome as keeps you hooked.

STORY TOLD IN SUPER STYLISH WAY

Tactical cover usage is awesome as you can dive and jump over to get in cover and really cool is that while in cover you can be safe from damage and be safe to shoot enemy’s.

TACTICAL COVER USAGE

The cover you use is destructible so you cannot rely on it to protect yourself. Helps stop you just staying hidden and shooting them in safety.

Love how the game has procedurally generated levels and all enemies,weapons,pick ups are all totally random all helps keep game to feel fresh.

Alot of different weapons and all are unique in both look,feel,usage in combat that can massively change each run and the way you play with them forces you to adapt until you can change them.

DOUBLE-BARRELED PISTOL
FLINTLOCK PISTOL
STATS FOR WEAPONS BOTH EQUIPPED AND PICKED UP

The gameplay is very addictive as even you die which you will as game pulls no punches from the start the game will make you want try another run as never know what you find.

There are 9 areas some require tactics such perfect roll to overcome environmental hazards that could cause damage to health.

EXAMPLE OF ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS YOU FIND THAT CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOURSELF
THE HUNT
MINES
THE FARM
THE BAYOU

The bosses are all unique and have their own attacks,movement and strategies to defeat them which helps keep you on your toes.

THE WENDIGO
THE PREACHER

CONS

The camera can be a bit annoying as no direct control sometimes camera in awkward place like climbing ladder sometimes leaves you bit exposed while camera asjusts.

OVERALL SUMMARY

I GIVE THIS GAME A SCORE OF 9.5/10

This is definitely worth it if you have gamepass then try it if not you get alot of content for your money.

100% RECOMMENDED IT SO MUCH FUN.
