What do you guys think of the trials? At first i was a little daunted by the idea, but i think it makes for a great side game. its a rush trying to get to that next tear when your being chased by those one hit guardians. just finished the last trial, pretty intense i thought.
I really like the trails in the Silent Realm. I didn't think I would like them but now it's one of the best parts that I remember most fondly. I like how they used your understanding of your soroundings by being there earlier in the game. The last one was intense but really good.
I normally hate this type of stealth section. It really made it so I didn't want to screw up though so it was actually a big relief completing them. I think the first one and the one in the lava area were the only ones I had to retry. Like Dogma said knowing the area and planning a route accordingly was cool. It almost always went to hell at some point and you just had to gun it to a bead you were saving which after the fact made it a better experience. That said I don't blame anyone that hates them at all.
They were the weakest part of the game for me, I just couldn't stand them. I was really surprised when they all talked about how much they loved them on the IGN spoiler podcast. I didn't like how the enemies with the lights seemed unavoidable at times and I reaaaaally hated that failure meant you had to sit through about eight text boxes telling you you just failed.
@GunstarRed: Yah i can see that. If i failed more than just a couple times i could see how i would of got really frustrated and not liked em at all. But, I only failed a couple times, and it was a very close call, so i didnt get too frustrated and just had a good time. I do think they made it easy enough to get through though with out too much trouble.
