Great, but with problems.
I recently picked it up in the Steam Sale and have been playing through since. At first I found the controls a little clunky but that went away with more playing. There are a number of other issues, too, including:
- Difficulty curve like a rollercoaster. Some rooms will be ridiculously easy and the next room full of mooks will kill you the moment you walk in.
- Combat system is a bit annoying at times, especially the AI and getting a good view on the action.
- Each area drags on a bit too long. While I usually don't rag on a game for being too *long* - I think that certain areas could've done with being cut down a bit. They're brilliant, but they start to lose impact after too long.
- People in your camp selling you DLC is the most immersion breaking, money-grabbing idea ever. I'm not opposed to DLC (Infact, I'm for it so long as it's good value for money and not taking pre-release development time away from the game) but... but... In my camp? Talk about breaking character.
I agree with your point about the difficulty curve. There was that one room, a few archers and a mage hidden behind a barricade, with inflammable grease all over the floor... A question concerning the DLC issue, though. I have the Ultimate Edition, so odds are I simply didn't notice, but when do people in your camp try to sell you DLC?
