I kind of didn't like EGX demo I played to be honest, though I'm not sure if it was because of the circumstances or the demo itself, the way they set it up to almost be a time trial and that the time to beat to get through the stage they presented you with kind of spoiled the atmosphere to be honest. I was going in to the demo expecting something like amnesia or at least a horror feel but the way they demonstrated it made it just feel like a very unforgiving stealth game.
Honestly a lot of the problems could have come from the 10 minute time limit and just being thrown in there, but it seemed that the alien was almost too reactive in a way, I had sneaked into dark corners away from it's line of sight but somehow it knew exactly where I was on the map and killed me before I could even react. The thing that made amnesia scary was the back and forth, you were defenseless and this thing could rip you apart at any moment but despite feeling constantly vulnerable you knew that even in the worst possible circumstances there was a small chance you could get away. Basically I don't want to play a game where I just find myself dying over and over again, it takes me out of the experience. I know I wasn't alone in this reasoning since my friend had a similar experience with it all, I'd like to try the demo again in a more calm, less limited situation (or just play the campaign instead of this challenge mode thing which this seemed to be) because despite the graphics and the sound being great I wasn't really enjoying what I played.
