I was enthralled and engaged through the entire story, but then I played the DLCs and I was left with a bad taste in my mouth. I was quite disappointed that they did nothing to advance the story and did nothing to clarify the ending. Needless to say, I am still eagerly awaiting a sequel and hope that the DLC doesn't suck.

I feel the same way, for the most part. Haven't played the DLC yet but have read around that many people were disappointed, which makes me feel a bit about it.

I loved the story, excellent stuff, definitely kept my attention and made me want to continue playing with the action/horror combo.

I found this game quite enjoyable at first as well but then it got really repetitive and boring doing the same thing over and over again.

The combat mechanics didn't really bother me tbh as the story kept me coming back for more. Enjoyed every moment of my time in Bright Falls.

I keep meaning to go back through it with Dev commentry enabled as I always liked doing that in Half-Life / Portal.

I don't take much notice of the combat I'm playing for the story.

I'm enjoying the game but the suspence is dying fast (just finished episode 2). Hopefully have a nice twist in the next episode or two.

Halfway through the game, it became very repetitive.

I found it an exciting game from begining to the end, actually when I got to the credits I thought, "Damn what a ride".

Now that I have to replay it for various achievements, it may not be as engaging.

Really one of the better games I have played on 360 and it's a goddamn shame it didn't sell better.

From my experience of the story I was more confused than bored.

Playthrough 1: Awesome, one of my favourite games in a long time.
Started playthrough 2 on Nightmare...Hit mission 4 and not played since, just got slightly bored, but I will come back to it again for sure.

There is a lot of potential for an amazing game. & the story line was the best in a long long time.

What's boring about shining a flashlight on enemies and waiting 10-15 seconds before you can shoot any of them? That sounds like another borderlands game of the year to me. *sarcasm

Original game was great. The plot there is brilliant. I've finished it with some good emotions, I wanted to know more but when I played DLCs, I asked myself "What they did with this?". DLCs ruined this mysterious atmosphere...

I was interested the whole way through, never got bored at all, and I've beaten the game on all three difficulties.

Found it interesting enough to 1500/1500 it. Liked the atmosphere and story, and even the combat was fun. What I didn't like were the platforming-type elements in "The Writer"; jumping challenges are for games with tight controls. Otherwise, you're just challenging your ability to compensate for slop.

My only complaint is that, although the story is rich and intriguing, the actual gameplay is nothing short of Point A to Point B, and usually the environments are interchangeable and unrelated to the mission, i.e. Get to Lover's Peak but cross through a saw mill and a lumber yard and a river.

I have started this game only recently (a couple of days or so...). I like the atmosphere and the game dynamics... with the exception of the collectibles. Ok for the manuscripts, as they are part of the story, but all those useless items are a little annoying (and I am only at half of the Episode 2).

I imagine that the designers put all those collectibles in order to keep players going everywhere and making the whole game time a little longer...

The original game was brilliant, but the DLC sucked a little bit and that's why the game became boring...
