If you are on the fence and want to know more about it, ask your questions here.  I picked up a couple days ago and I am hooked on the damn thing.  I can't stop playing it.  
 
There are some rough spots, but overall it is one of the best games I've played for some time.  The graphics aren't the best, but the story is intriguing as hell and will suck you in.   
 
So if you have any questions, especially after that awful IGN review, ask me them and I do my best to answer them :)

Well it's obviously a piece of shit so why would I want to hear you talk about it?

Bah, give it a chance.  Rent the game, do the bad prologue scene and see how it goes from there.  You might be pleasantly surprised :)

the movement looks very bad.. how is it working for you?

Is it better than Driv3r?

#8 Posted by Ashwyn (202 posts) -

Ive seen gameplay and I'm really glad it's not got a release date for Europe.
Game looks pretty damn bad to put it lightly.

Moves like RE4, over the shoulder cam.  Occasionally (usually when going up/down stairs) it will go into a fix cam position like the old resident evil games, and thats when it turns into the terrible tank controllers.  Thankfully this doesn't happen often.

 Never played driver so I can't say :( 
 
 
However the driving in this game is pretty lackluster in terms of control.  The controls are very loose for some reason, so your car will very steer drastically when driving if you try to make a turn.

I heard it was a weird mix of something that resembles "comedy" and horror at another board, is this true?

@TurboMan: That's an insane question, NOTHING is better than driv3r, except maybe syphilis.

The comedy is less "haha funny joke" type and more of the awkwardness of the protagonist and situation he gets into with the town people (see the biscuit scene at the police station or coffee with polly) 
 
Depends on how you define horror, if be scary situation then I wouldn't really say its a horror game, maybe on par with RE5 in terms of scary.  Thriller however, yeah.  You are investigating a murder in this town, the way the murder was done was pretty freaky.   
 
The best way to get prepped for this game would be to watch the show Twin Peaks.  Its obvious that the creators of the game were a big fan of the show.  Basically this game is Twin Peaks: The Game

Either you have bad taste or the game is really a piece shit, which the majority and critics would agree with.
#17 Edited by larryrules138 (142 posts) -

Majority of whom? Most of the people who've played it with an open mind so far seem to like it in spite of its flaws. Of course critics will give it negative reviews because this game surely isn't for your average FPS-loving gamer, and it's unpolished.
 
Seems like this will definitely be a cult game. Either you'll get it and like it or hate it outright.

#18 Posted by natetodamax (19208 posts) -

How much does it suck?

#19 Posted by DocHaus (1335 posts) -

Is it story driven like, say, Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit? Is it like a point-and-click adventure or are you more active in controlling your character? Are there lots of quick time events? Jumping puzzles? Tons of gore? No gore? Al Gore?

This game has quite a bit of buzz on a number of forums, and it seems it's worth getting if you like twin peaks. Especially since it's only $20.

I was surprised (though I probably shouldn't have been) to find that this game is pretty popular over at Something Awful. At least I know the goons approve and I'm not as insane as Agent York for liking this

That's your choice and to believe that I am a "shitty poster" and "trolls the forum". Legitimately interesting game? ROFLMAO. This game has quite a bit of a buzz on a number of forums? Where's the links? Last I heard, this game got commented on being a shitty game and received a rating of 2/10.

I'm actually finding it hard to find people who really dislike this game who've played it longer than the prologue. The user concensus to me seems to be that it's rad despite flaws. And the flaws sometimes add to the charm

#31 Posted by JeevesPleez (332 posts) -

I'll probably get this when it get cheaper (yes, cheaper than $20) since I have a feeling I'll be laughing my ass off the whole time I'm playing it (or breaking my controller in rage. Only time will tell).

Well the being that the biggest review that people is following is the IGN review where the reviewer did not understand who Zach is (if you don't figure it out in 2 minutes you are legitimately retarded.) then I wouldn't put much faith in them.  Go by word of mouth, not some guy who is paid to sell ad space via favorable reviews.

The story is probably the number 1 thing about it.  Without it, I would be giving this game much less favorable review.  There are quick time events, peppered throughout the game that can be annoying.  If you die at them though, you usually start at where you died or a little before.  No jumping puzzle.  Yes gore, but most of it is in cutscenes.  No Al Gore.

See thats the problem, the "movie" (story) to it is actually really damn good.  As i said before, it will suck you in.  If it was a book, I'd be reading it right now instead of posting on a messgaeboard/studying for my test. 
 
Gameplay itself can be rough in some aspects.  The enemies are pretty meh (so far), and driving is a bit clunky.   
 
Though some of the aspects as realistic day cycle (its 1:1 to real life, but you can sleep/smoke to pass time), townspeople have realistic schedules are neat.  The setting is fantastic.   
 
I recommend going into it, not as the next Halo, running around blasting people, but instead a story, taking your time and taking in the atmosphere.

#46 Edited by XivSpew (51 posts) -

I picked this game up as well (for free, mind you).  It is very much Twin Peaks the game, your enjoyment of it will directly stem from how much you liked the show, especially all the inside jokes.  I mean, it's really, really not well made, but god damn if it isn't weird.  Crackers cost $30 in the game.  First puzzle is finding the right species of squirrel as a keyring.  You have 2 seperate controller inputs to turn your wipers on and off.  The story is admittedly cool, and they actually establish your role as a player of the game within the context of the story (don't ask), but by no means is this a good game in the slightest.  At the very least, it is the first time in a long time I'm totally dumbfounded and amazed at what the game is coming at me with...it's seriously off the charts of any normal survival horror, western or Japanese.  If you're the kind of person who likes watching shitty movies with friends, play this with them.  it's totally worth the $20...especially if you're intoxicated somehow.
 
Oh, and I forgot to mention, possibly the best pause/menu screen ever.  Just stare at it.

Sad to see that we can't get as good as a discussion here as Neogaf or Something Awful.
 
Basically the game is hyper ambitious under an ugly sheen of unpolishness. There's so many things that sound great on paper, and if you're drawn into the guirky cheapness of the game, you'll find out they play out just as good too. Drive around a large scale city, play a dumpload of minigames, eat a wide variety of food. Peak into people's houses. Also the puzzle solving is quite clever and the detective work actually asks for a bit of brain power. If you've ever found yourself loving games for being janky (Earth Defense Force fans unite) you'll probably find the cheapness of the game compelling and enjoy playing a game you've never really seen before. IGN's right, if this was released in 2002 it would of been called a Shenmue killer.
 
But there score is so wrong. 2.0 should be reserved for downright broken games with nothing redeemable about them. Deadly Premonition isn't broken, and there's a lot to enjoy about the game.
 
But one thing that sucks is that the achievements for beating the game on easy, normal, and hard don't stack up. Fucking hell. >:|
