I played the game in “Movie Night” mode with four other friends, so everyone had a role.
I was and still am a huge fan of Until Dawn and have some fantastic memories of playing that game with friends. That being said, this game was a huge disappointment.
Not only did I feel that certain characters had more screen time than others, I felt that every decision made was worthless. There are maybe two or three major decisions we made that felt like it could have affected the outcome of the story, but the entirety of the rest of the game seemed to be just wandering around tight spaces and hallways.
We played the game over the course of two nights, the second night having only about two hours left of the game to play, and that night, two of us didn’t even get to play as our characters, even though they were both still alive in the story.
On top of all that, the ending was so abrupt that all five of us were convinced it wasn’t actually the end until credits rolled.
I’m still holding out hope that future games in series are stronger than this, but it didn’t leave a good first impression.
I use Opera (I know) and it's occurred twice while watching the Unprofessional Fridays on Wednesday stream which is currently live at the time of me posting this. Opera crashes and tells me that the browser ran out of memory. If it happens again I'll post a screen shot.
