Nice game - but way to easy

#1 Posted by TsuHai (109 posts) -

I really liked the game's artstyle and some puzzles were interesting but i found it way to easy. I got through the campaign in 2 hours and i got all the challanges in another 3 hours. Not much game for 800pts. But it was alright.  
 
I really had hopes that this game would be more challanging than braid, but i found braid a little bit harder.

Five hours for an 800 point game sounds reasonable to me.

I thought it was totally worth 10 dollars.

i really think trying to justify a purchase based on length instead of enjoyment or the game itself is a bit absurd

Easy? I've only heard people talk about how it's very challenging. Also, it's made by like 3 guys. I'd say that's quite an accomplishment. 
 
BTW, have you guys been to the website? There is a pretty sweet song playing in the background. 
 
Edit: I thought it was small, but there is 8 guys on the team.

Its rather easy, not as easy as Braid I would say, but still easy. People that say its very challenging probably had the same thing to say about Braid and just aren't too good with these games. Even though they are rather different.

It depends. Getting all the puzzle parts in Braid was challenging, there were a couple of hard puzzles. Winterbottom on the other hand was really easy, I even got through the challenges really quickly because it was mostly trial & error.
 
This game reminded me, that I need to get a new joystick, my left stick is very loose and it ruined alot of clone recordings.

Some parts were a pretty hard imo, and others were fairly easy, when you figured them out, but still a great, great game.

The song on the website is one of the tunes from the game. Lots of great music.

I am going to have to agree if it is an entertaining 2-5 hours for $10 then not bad.  If you multiply that by 6 to compare it to the price of a retail game that is 12-30 hours.  I know I had rather pay $10 for 2-5 good hours than for 10-15 hours I didn't enjoy.

Not hard compared to Braid I guess?
