I feel like I am the only person in the world that can notice a bad game when they see one.
-God awful control layout.
All fun is lost when you have unintuitive controls that makes no sense. LT + Y to reload? f*ck off please. It should be plain and simply just X, melee attack should be RT (When not holding LT like Resident Evil)
-No look sensitivity option.
Moving the camera around with the right stick is god damn painful. It takes a god damn age to do sh*t with it, no option to speed this up, yet there is an option to change how long hints stay on screen for, I mean what the f*ck.
Zombies float up from laying down as if they are winched up by a crane, glitch and spin around at times. Running animation looks quite stupid, running and hitting left and right you seem to just slide around like an ice world in a super mario game. Running is especially stupid when two followers are running behind you totally in sync like two spastic twins. Firearms seem to just warp up into your hand and alot of the shooting mechanics are not polished in any way.
-Overall sluggish feel.
Going into or even ONTO any building including tents force you into walk mode, I understand you can sprint but the sprint indoors is what the basic walking speed needs to be from the start, this just grates on me so hard in games, I just want to have smooth control over my character.
-Huge amount of bugs.
A lot of animation glitches and framerate issues when driving and numerous other annoyances.
I understand I can only carry a few things, what I don't understand is that I have a huge backpack and can't even carry 30 .22LR rounds for a pistol. There is also no way to drop items into the world, so if you are full, yet want to try out a found melee weapon, you will have to delete a whole item just to try it out. Melee weapons are also extremely stupid, sure a tree branch is gunna break over time, but a modern hatchet that is designed to be for chopping WOOD which is much stronger than rotten old flesh and bone, somehow breaks within two seconds. Just don't include these if they are then too powerful, keep them rare and it would then be exciting to find weapons that you then treasure. And why can't I just pick up another stick off the floor in the forrest, the place is MADE OF THEM.
I really wanted to like this game but mostly just due to the camera and controls I can't. Hopefully when it is out on PC I can edit some of those, but even then it feels like the game is pretty dated and that it was just shoved out the door unfinished because they have already spent way too many years developing it.
I just can't take a game seriously when some of those serious bugs and animation glitches exist and are in a game at launch in 2013. I mean come on, get it together. It feels like nobody even tested this game before release.
I will try more of the trial but I just couldnt handle the game for very long due to controls and sluggish behaviour.
