>>323192138 How? It has one of the best art directions of any game I have played in years. Decent combat considering it wasn't made by some crazy jap character action team. I mean the least interesting level if I had to chose might have been the one with all the oriental stuff fighting samurai bugs, but even it was miles ahead of most shit recently.
>>323193150 That's too bad, this game had the most interesting levels and environment I have ever seen, I guess it was just too odd to really catch on. I honestly think if this game were to be released more recently it would have done a lot better. I have recently found out about another possible gem cold Folklore that I will be ordering soon to hopefully get some more fairy tale weirdness.
>>323193653 If it offers a good enough amount of interesting art and strangeness I think it will be enough for me at 12 bucks. I mean honestly the only game I can immediately think of with an interesting art direction recently was Bloodborne.
No idea, if it game out now it would probably be a lot more well received because it's basically only good as a walking simulator to experience all the different art and atmosphere. I guess it came out a bit too early to get in on that stuff.
>>323195714 I honestly only thought the combat was a bit meh and the rest of the game was great, but in an age where the Witcher is getting game of the year it seems combat isn't relevant anymore. Witchers combat was way worse than this games. I did start the first Alice though, I will be getting around to finishing it at some point.
>>323194127 >i was disappointed that the game had no scary or spook factor How so, mate? It was spooky as fuck with the story in the background, implied atrocities doctor did to Alice and her sister and level design could give you shivers sometimes. Pic obviously related.
love the game dont get me wrong. levels are beautiful. only thing going for it. combat is shallow as fuck. upgrading was really shitty and boring. some levels just dragged on way too damn long(japan level and teapot/steampunk level)
this is just my personal opinion but alot of the memory lines had no significance to the story and some were even cringy
While I would say platformers certainly aren't as popular as they used to be, this game being a platformer has nothing to do with the mixed reviews it received.
Basically what has already been pointed out:
-Levels are way too long -Gameplay gets easy and repetitive super fast -Story is...pretty bad. I can understand if you were lost at "an epic edgy dark adventure in wonderland" which of course the first one had, but the actual details of the plot in the first make perfect sense. In the second game, not so much, it feels very forced and the conclusion isn't satisfying. -Might be a nitpick on my end, but I don't even think the soundtrack for this one is that good, it's standard and sounds ok but it largely forgettable.
The game looks pretty good for the most part, and the aesthetic direction is nice and clearly had some effort put into it, but that's it.
Because its not a good game at all, and it is the definition of style of substance?
>platforming and combat are both dreadfully boring, monotonous, and repetitive >game goes on for 20 hours when it only has maybe 5 hours worth of actual content >story is fucking retarded compared to the original
Its pretty typical modern EA garbage. Got it for 5 dollars and still feel ripped off.
>>323191495 Comparison to the original: Chris Vienna's unique music gets replaced by unremarkable music (except for OP's pic level), the characters are much less interesting, Cheshire Cat got tamed bad, gameplay as repetitive as the original
Overall a good game but forgettable compared to the first one.
