Ah, there it is. Out of a 1,437-word review, a piddling 185 talk about the actual game rather than its presentation or technical elements, and unlike the thoughts on those your thoughts on gameplay seem to be disorganized and vague. I understand people have different ideas of what's important in an interactive entertainment product, but I find it very odd that only 1/8th of the review of this game talks about the game.
What more is there to talk about exactly? It is the fourth episode out of five and by now we all know the gameplay mechanics inside out. The story is a major component, as are the environments. Furthermore, I do talk about the puzzles and glitches in the game for a lot more than a mere 185 words.
I discussed the story with regards to the gameplay mechanics involving the dopplegangers, as well as always bringing it back to how it impacts gameplay, such as no DeSoto (the use of tunnels to travel) and environents being recycled.
How you can say only an eighth of the review discusses the actual game astounds me! I will be happy to copy and paste examples throughout where I specifically reference the game beyond the story if you wish.
