Finished this game today. Really liked it but it had its issues.
The dialogue and character writing is superb. Easily the best part of the game, second only to the art and cinematography. Lots of thought went into it. The amount of dialogue in this game in INSANE. The characters just dont shut up LOL.
But gotta say chatting with the charcters on the ship was my favourite part of the game. Managed to scratch that Mass Effect itch.
I liked the 'new' characters like Ko-Rel, Nikki and the Dog.
I think I like this games version of Gamora and..
The weaker part of the game is the combat. I just didn't enjoy it. The concept seems really cool, but in execution it was just lacking in polish. (Maybe I'm feeling it much more becasue before this I was playing God Of War?). Star-Lord's pew pew guns feel horrible. Very unsatisfying,
In a lot of the cinematic shots the hits don't even land properly. Felt like an afterthought. The controls are a mess on keyboard. Giving your teammates commands is pretty cool though. I enjoyed that part.
The puzzles were nice but very easy. They should aim for more complicated stuff. Timing based with all characters involved would be cool.
I experienced a fair bit of technical issues.
- Controller didnt' work.
- On some days my game would freeze every 30 mins or so and I had to force quit and restart. On some days it was fine.
- A lot of times during combat my actions wouldn't register correctly, like that reload mechanic kept missing even though I was doing it right. Same with the double click to fire the stagger shot. Felt like it was just wasn't registering.
- During one of the cutscenes in the middle of the game, every characters eyes started blinking like crazy. o_o
Overall I liked enough. Not my GOTY, but still a really good game that punches way above its weight and deserves to be played for its writing and art.
