    Really on the fence with this game, if it's about walking around for 10h with a ladder and backpack i'm gonna be bored really quick.

    Seen a lot of vid footage and analysis of it and def not a game for me. The story script if very poorly written and they use obscure terms and references of things without explanation. I believe its a game thats going to require a lot of patience from players.

    As I wrote here a few times, I play all AAA games... mostly because they simply land on my table.
    So yeah, I played this on PS4Pro when it released as well. I did not finish it though. I was too annoyed and bored by it.

    These are the prerequisites to love this game:
    You love Kojima.
    You love how Kojima tells even the most boring stories in the world.
    You love Kojima's extremely dry sense of humor.
    You love seeing Kojima's name 100x in every single credit in the game.
    You love watching characters talking in extreme slomo, saying literally nothing in 5 minute long cutscene.
    You love walking from A to B and B to A. 5 times in a row.
    You don't mind terrible vehicle physics.
    ...
    etc... I'm tired just thinking about it again.

    steam reviews are mostly positive despite the doomers on here.


    see if they hold up. or the fanboys weighted the early steam reviews. i expected more mixed.

    Will the people who hate it go and buy it just to make a negative review?

    I think its rather impressive to get very positive as rating on a platform which is infested by 4chan infected people.

    I mean its a console game , and now its on PC.
    I have seen many hateful posts with other games with this route.

    The game has been out for quite some time. People who bought it on Steam knew exactly what to expect and score reflects this.
    What I find the most interesting here is the engine. This is the first released PC game running on Decima and there doesn't seem to be any critical issues. While there are
    other games/engines with very long history of PC releases filled with Day1 bugs.
    I haven't played the PC version yet, so I can't say for sure, but I don't see many reports of technical issues. Let's hope the HZD release will be as smooth as this one. Even though I expect much higher initial sales numbers from HZD, which might mix things up a bit.

    Just about every negative review on Steam is regarding technical issues with the game, that alone is shocking as I would have though the negative reviews would have focused on the 'gameplay' but as you said I am guessing that people by now know what the game is and what you're getting but whatever the case it does seem to have it's fair share of technical issues.

    You mean those 286 negative reviews? Even if all of them were negative because of technical issues, 286 out of 4409, that would be a very little technical difficulties in my book. That would be astonishing number for their first time PC release!

    Indeed less than 0.1% of those that have reviewed it, depends upon the nature of the issues those people are having though. I just found it odd that out of the first two pages I glanced through they all mentioned technical issues and not a single person giving a negative because of the gameplay or the nature of the game.
