timer is stress inducing

#1 Posted by mangomonger (67 posts) -

so i bought this game the other day and i put it in and now im stuck on the 4th or 5th level. 

everything about this game screams just sit down and roll things up but the timer in my opinion makes this super stressful.
i was thinking am i the only on that thinks that ?

The time limit makes it exciting and is really the only skill factor in the game, without the timer it would be pretty boring.

I'm fine with the timer. Even though it causes me to be a screaming lunatic when I'm cutting it close, but I find that to be the fun part. It's other games that have timers like that that grind my gears.

I agree with the OP. It makes the game feel like an oxymoron.

On some cases it really is extremely brutal, admittetly if you stick to a certain route and pick up stuff in specific order then you should be fine, but then the game ceases to be fun since it feels that you have to go down a very specific path which contradicts its open enviroments.

Timers can be stressful at times. This game is no exception, when its getting to the final few seconds Id be prepared to pull my hair out.
