I’m several hours into this on PS5. This is an interesting one. I like the survival systems in the game. There appear to be many things to do that set it apart from other open world games. I like the skill tree. The zombie, I mean, Freaker horde is legitimately challenging (at least to me at this stage in the game).
But boy is this rough around the edges. Cutscenes don’t flow naturally from one to the next. Deacon’s internal monologue is just plain weird. It’s like he’s rushing through his lines to the point of it sounding unnatural. In fact much of the recorded dialogue is inconsistent. I was wrapping up a mission when I was escorting a character who was riding along on my bike. While riding, there’s a conversation going on. The girl on the bike is speaking normally while Deacon is shouting at the top his lungs.
But I’m generally enjoying the gameplay, so I’m going to stick with it.
