I virtually hit my ps2 with a machete…..
I had a tiny skit planned out for this video exactly where I would hit my PS2 with a huge machete simply because this game was so poor. A tiny more than the top rated? Yes. But it would have deserved it. Hidden Invasion is at the moment 1 of the worst games I’ve played. It really is worse than Dragon Ball Z Sagas. That game attempted. It suffers from the identical challenges as Hidden Invasion, but it attempted to stand out and was executed a bit far better.
I initially did program on generating a list video for this overview, it wasn’t just some joke or cop-out so the video could be quick. I realized that when you expertise the combat, practically nothing else in the game matters. It really is just straightforward button mashing, unless you have a gun, in which case you can mash fewer buttons. Uncover the important card, go to the ideal door, move on to the subsequent level. Repeat for an hour and you are going to comprehend that if you attempted to trade this in to Gamestop and they supplied you ten cents, then they have been overpaying. Nothing at all in the game is fantastic, it really is merely beyond redemption. And when I realized that the game was just under no circumstances going to be enjoyable, I reduce the rest of the script and summarized the rest of my points.
The invisible walls have been definitely horrendous. Whenver an enemy spawned, they formed invisible walls about them. I feel this was intentional, type of like a callback to 2D beat em ups exactly where you had to beat all the enemies just before the screen would move. The distinction among these and Hidden Invasion is that if you can see a entire level but your movement is restricted to just a couple of feet, that is extremely unsatisfying. When you combine that with the maze-like level design and style and all of the locked doors, often enemies would spawn behind locked doors, and trap you. That is when the game deserved some machete-ing.
There was even a boss introduction cutscene exactly where 1 of the enemies was nonetheless onscreen, and he ran across the screen throughout the cutscene and just dragged my character along with him. That was just an awful function, that resulted in so quite a few bugs. And even though we’re speaking cutscenes, somehow the actual game appears way far better than the prerendered motion pictures. The animations have been so unnatural that when I began the game I in fact believed the key characters have been robot cops. Even inside the game the animations are janky. The operating animation appears like the mocap operate was carried out by an old lady at the fitness center. They even fire their guns with 1 arm, working with the other arm to guard their face as they flinch. Yeah, I am going with old lady in a mocap suit.
I did not finish up obtaining to it but my preferred element of the game was a door count challenge exactly where you had to wait two minutes for an elevator to arrive so you can finish the level. Somehow, I just stood by the elevator for the whole time and not 1 enemy came my way. If Toka was nonetheless generating games, I’d advocate some QA testing, and I’d say that subsequent time they ought to just attempt. They dont even have to attempt challenging. Just give it an try, simply because this was pitiful.
