So I just bought this game called Dark.
Originally, I planned on buying Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen, because I loved the original. But this game caught my eye, a stealth action RPG, sounds like my type of game.
What I got was a piece of junk. I looked past a lot of the flaws. The graphics were very similar to The Walking Dead, which is a good thing, but the mouth movement was awful, not only that, but the dialogue is badly paced. Still, I looked past those.
Here's what I found utterly wrong, the movement seemed off, it seemed clunky and strangely controlled, but I continued to dialogue, much like Mass Effect. There seemed to be nothing different between the choices you made, they just were questions, that you ask to everyone in the first area, and he sounds the same every time, not even smooth about it; the same options, everything. When you talked to people, their mouths basically opened, and stayed open until they were done talking, with the smallest twitches for each word. He had the same choices, and some people just said "Can't you see I'm busy" to every question asked. There only seemed to be 10 different character models for random people crowding up a room, and you could find clones upon clones upon clones. They all seemed to have the same 1 response everytime you chose the Talk option. So I continued, I figured the game mechanics wouldn't be so bad.
So I got to the "Training" section. Still clunky, I walked around, attempting to kill the other guys, which is tough, because you have no gun, you're relying solely on assassinations. The attacks were clunky still, and didn't run smoothly when you attacked someone. They also insist on you using your vampire powers, which basically seemed to be from Dishonored.
After training, I had had enough. This game is bad, there's no charm in it for me; even Alpha Protocol from like 4 years ago that I bought for $3, was an amazing game. This game attempted to be Mass Effect, Alpha Protocol, Dishonored, and The Walking Dead; and accomplished none of them.
