View Full Version : Why developers? Why? [P.A]

So was playing through this today & as usual was enjoying the game, Que chapter 6 flying through the air avoiding debris!! Fucking why? I didn't buy this game to move around the screen avoiding shit & repeatedly dying on what must be one of the most annoying sections i've come across in a game this year!

The reason i bought this was for the slo-mo gun play and enjoyable action not shit they hide away later in the game like the old bullshit driving sections in 1st person shooters FUCK OFF! ect

I'm pretty sure i'm not alone in the annoying fact that games companies add shit to their games that has nothing to do with the genre of game you purchased & it really grits ma shit SO FUCKING STOP IT RIGHT NOW!

What next, Dating sim's in racing games? puzzles in flight sims?

So once again yet another game joins the ranks of games that i may not even be bothered to finish as it's no longer enjoyable (Kind of like that juicy apple you spy in the shop and after purchasing you bite into it to find under the beautiful exterior is a bloody MAGGOT! that should not be there)

Personally, I like it. I think it's something to break up gameplay, so that it's not the same thing over and over and over. This, along with the driving scenes, are little tidbits they toss in so that you aren't just running through a few thugs into the next arena match.
I can see why you'd kinda be offended if you're used to the majority of the genre where developers say "Alright you're [insert well-known Shooter Hero here], here are your enemies/this is what you need to find. Now go kill some s***."
You just have to keep hold of that control stick and avoid as much shrapnel and gunfire as possible. It's doable, trust me. :D

Then come back and complain with me when you get to the last scene. I got a lil' something to discuss with the scripters and programmers there...

So you complaining that the devs added a bit of variety to the game.

All I get from your post is you didn't like that bit as you weren't good enough to pass it quickly.

So you are bashing the entire game because of a 5 minute sequence that actually flows with the story... she was in a plane, and the plane blew up. It takes 5 minutes, and is actually really easy, why do so many people have a hard time with this. I died once my first time through on hard cause I didn't see the hole in the middle of the very final part. (I had a glare on my TV) every other time I have done it I haven't died, Golden Bullets, Points Count and Easy runthrough for 50k. thats 4 runs through this section with 1 death...

5 minutes out of 7-8 hours of gameplay and your crying like a little baby... This is an Action adventure 3ps I believe that is an action scene, and you still shoot people in mid air. If you thought you bought a bullet time 3ps, why are you not complaining about the QTE boss fights?

09-23-2009, 07:44 PM
This could have done with a spoiler. On a personal note i thought this was one of the better levels. I like a bit of varity like some of the other users have already said, if you hate it that much stop playing the game and trade it in.

I really enjoyed that level. It was very unique and gave me the opportunity to do something I haven't had the chance to do in a game yet...fly through the rear section of a plane whilst it falls from the sky.

Wet was enjoyable from start to finish.

My only complaint was you couldn't skip several cut scenes. Other than that a lot of fun.

09-24-2009, 07:43 PM
I agree with the OP for the most part... just not quite so emphatically.

This game was really good, and fun to play, until I got to the silly on-rails portions. So many neat looking scenes were ruined by the context-action sequences (What ever happened to just watching a cutscene?)

The free-fall level might be different, but different isn't always good.

This game also has one of the weakest last level/boss fight endings ever. Ever. We chase this guy and his crazy spider chick around the world three times and they both die in 9 button presses during cutscenes? Really?

i agree with u atkatsuki. it took me for ever to beat that stupid plane mission. i almost stopped playing the game completely. so annouying

Your "what next" thing reminded me of that one RPG part in Paper Mario 3. That was awesome.

Oh and Battletoads.

09-27-2009, 06:45 AM
i started this game on hard and by the 5 lvl was wound up and ready to never play this game again i thought it was shite, i then restarted on normal and have really enjoyed the game since. ppl get to involved in points and forget the game is ment to be enjoyed, i did the debris lvl on normal on my third attempt and like i say enjoyed it no end. i play almost all games on the hardest settings but sometimes u have to bite the bullet.

09-27-2009, 07:15 AM
I agree with the OP as well. My thoughts as playing that level were quite simply that whoever designed it should be shot. Each to their own of course, but that level just really frustrated me.

09-27-2009, 09:44 AM
Meh. It wasn't that bad. I personally enjoyed the stage because it was more of a break during the same old things...It was over the top action, and that was no exception.

yeah, it was a bit frustrating, but once I got past the shooting gallery, it was pretty easy to see the pattern of the larger pieces of debris after a few goes.

If was fun until you had to dodge debris. That was just a pain in the ass.

10-18-2009, 01:29 PM
that part is so easy though.. Try Chapter 11 the motorcycle part on Ultra hard.. now that's the bullshit hahaha

Ya no kidding. I wasn't quite sure what his point was besides the fact that he got stuck on a part because he sucked and decided to complain.

Why must people complain. If your any good at games then this part should have been no problem. Games are supposed to be challenging and if you dont want a challenge then play some Pixar game. ^_^

10-27-2009, 11:55 PM
lol that section definitely wasn't hard, unless your eye-hand coordination skills are complete ass.

it could probably have done with another checkpoint in it but i still think it was a great set piece. It took me about 5 goes to do it.

11-29-2009, 07:52 AM
Yes i thought it was Amazing all the stuff from the plane down to the ground never played anything like that befor totally unique Brillant
this game is awesome and deserves more credit than i think it is currently getting :uzi:

12-17-2009, 07:40 PM
I dont think he's complaining because the games hard I think whats pissing him off is parts like that in a game when he's not expecting it, its not hard its just boring repeating the same thing over and over. It took me about 6 attempts to get it right, this game is ok but there are a few issue's with it like the shitty camera not keeping up with what the player is doing, stupid mini cut scenes when you close 2 doors and a boss drops in as your trying to wall run, thus dropping you to the floor. Not the worst and not the best.

It just sounds like someone had a difficult time with the level. When you look at it realistically, it's only 5 min out of the whole game, deal.

01-20-2010, 05:13 AM
Main problem I had with this level was when she would go from moving sluggishly one moment then speeding like crazy, then I would get hit by a crate lol. Also, the stinkin propellers were in a different position every time. I ended up turning my own music on because I was getting annoyed with the drumming.

02-20-2010, 08:52 PM
Shoot, I'd like to get to that part, I can't get past the very first bit. I'm pretty close to the 50k but this is just BS. I'd gladly upgrade now but I can't.

I don't mind the level style but why can't I move? Just dumb.

I thought it was cool. Visuals and effects were awesome. I did die quite a few times on my first playthrough but now I just walk all over that level.

04-10-2010, 11:50 PM
It would've been more fun for us casuals if it wasn't so damn punishing. One hit = death is not exactly game friendly. They could've at least had one hit deplete a health bar, but not the entire like. Chalk it up for another brainchild at Bethesda for thinking of this idea.

I was dreading this level after all thats been said, even in reviews. Just finished on hard on my first go ... don't see the problem with it to be honest, maybe I just got lucky.
But I do think it was a nice break from all the running and gunning.

You fall from a plane. To a falling parachute. With guns. What's not to like?

05-20-2010, 07:03 PM
Died once on each section - easy? :/

(...on Hard)

05-21-2010, 07:57 PM
That level pissed me off the first time I was playing it but I got the hang of it and now it's really easy. But I'm on my third playthrough.

06-09-2010, 10:36 PM
You fall from a plane. To a falling parachute.
Which then floats back through the debris.

I don't know what annoyed me more the poor controls and camera or the randomly falling over dead. Not to mention every level is exactly the same, running area, arena, blood splatter make everything red, boss fight.

The developers obviously tried to imitate Drake of the 99 dragons and somehow managed to make a worse game.

08-20-2010, 05:33 AM
I have died over 100 times now trying to do this. I have no idea how to do it

11-22-2010, 12:30 PM
I agree. That is one of the worst levels I've played in recent memory. The problem is that the perspective is all screwy, then you fall and make that terrible noise, load, cutscene, repeat. I have no problem with the level itself, it's the execution that sucks.
Also, to all the peeps who show up in a thread like this to claim that they got it on their first try ON EXTRA HARD BECAUSE I'M SO BAD-ASS You are either some kind of Rain Man or a liar, either way it's pointless.

11-23-2010, 07:06 AM
why does everybody always gotta bash a person when they express a dislike about a certain part of a game as if they are not entitled to their opinion or experience in a game. im pretty everybody who plays a game finds part of a game or an achievement they think is hard while to others its probably easy. i think we should step back and offer solutions instead of tearing people down when they complain about something.

I played this level on Fixed [Hard] and got passed it on one go. I was shocked that this whole level was based around this one event.

Now that I've completed the game, I'm doing Points Count now and just finished this section. Am I remembering wrong?- I could have sworn that parts slowed down for you to get by the larger pieces or debris. Playing just now it took me three attempts, always failing at the last part, but it seemed harder than before.

Does the speed change depending on difficulty?
I still thought this was a fun game nonetheless.

01-17-2011, 09:21 AM
I agree I hate this game, Im glad I only rented it. I ma not a fan of the jumping mechanic, there are times I dont want to jump 10 feet or others where she doesnt jump far enough. I absolutely hated level 6 it is completely out of place with a run and gun type game. If I wanted to dodge stuff I would find a dodge ball game, now we have land mines and she never jumps where I am aiming but that could be an operator error. I rented this game to go on a massive killing spree not dodge parts of an airplane and land mines.

01-20-2011, 11:53 PM
Personally I got pissed off with the life-granting gatlin gun...i mean, seriously just because u have a gatlin gun doesnt mean u can survive 100 headshots...that's just plain stupid IMO

02-13-2011, 08:43 AM
did anyone else like me die on this mission while having nothing infront of you trying to make it through that open gap with fire around it. i was heading straight into it and just somehow died like 2 times nothing infront of me but the opening

12-20-2012, 02:47 PM
I may be late to this party, but I'm glad i'm not the only one who finds Chapter 6 to be total tripe bullshit.

Game is a fucking joke anyway, but god damn is this section a pain.
