It’s still places as a gimmick that two sirens are able to suddenly do now in 3. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ava in the future DLC regarding her, if rumours are true, has her doing the same thing to give us orders.
I’d like to think that for Angel in 1, things weren’t even ironed out - what sirens were and that Angel, as a person, wasn’t even decided yet. Who she was and what she was hadn’t been decided until they worked on the story for 2 so I find it a tad more forgivable.
And I understand Tannis gaining Angels abilities but this was the only thing she used of Angel having in the previous games. The only other times we see her actually using it is to take over the turrets and to bash about the Agoniser. I feel like they did Angel and her abilities a real disservice tbh. I always hoped her sacrifice would have meant something bigger in the future. Mostly because in the pre sequel, in the clap dlc, we see hope and self esteem images as a clap-siren with angels wings and a clap-warrior with Athena’s shield. And with Athena being saved by the guardian…
Yeah, getting side tracked. The models for the mind talking were a bit weird. I can’t complain about them not looking like the characters though as Angels live action actress looked a lot different to her character model. I think it has something to do with them looking much more realistic. I feel with angels on 2, it has a more computer like look - because it was through the echo - whereas now we’re seeing a person and can tell it’s a real life person rather than some digital reconstruction.
