There’s a reason why I’m beginning to not like Double Fine games. And it started with Brutal Legend.
Sure, art direction is fantastic. Settings are just absurd and awesome. Acting, dialog, ALL ASTOUNDING.
But the actual game part has never been quite 100%.
Maybe it’s systemic with adventure games as a whole, and it’s this genre that I don’t particularly enjoy. I never got into those epic Lucasarts games that the older gamers fawn over. Maybe this is it.
Backtracking in this game gets to be annoying. I need to be in the right place with the right item with the right character… at least have some way to warp from one character’s location to another.
Control is a little bit mushier than I would like, especially for a platformer.
Whatever, it’s Last of Us time anyway.
