I haven’t posted much on here but I’ve always been pretty positive. I pre-ordered after the beta test and sunk 300 hours into the game - I loved the characters, settings and story. I took a break just before Ernest was released (finished the Handsome Collection on Xbox One, which was awesome) and came back now that the first Ops DLC was released.
First - Face Off. I tried this a few times when it was released and this was not what I wanted ; it just seemed a variant of capture, which was my least favourite mode. I was hoping for a Horde mode of some kind and that’s what I originally thought it would be. I’m sure some will like it but it’s just too all over the place for me.
Second - Kid Ultra is great. I love his voice, lines, story and how he plays. I could not get into any matches today however so I just tried him initially on private. This was disappointing…not sure how the population is on Xbox these days.
Third - Ops mode. Cool idea with the detective noir theme, but after 4 tries, we failed on 2 of them, beat 1 and the server kicked me out about a minute before winning the 2nd time. It seems like the difficulty spikes insanely on the last boss fight to a disproportionate degree. Also, the fading to black would get old fast as it’s difficult to see what’s going on.
This is hard to say, as I desperately want this game to succeed, but I’m not really feeling the Chaos Rumble mode or the new DLC - I’m sorry if I haven’t read through all the other topics on here that address any of this but this is just some quick feedback from a returning player. If I feel like this, I wonder how new players feel.
