Hello, I’m sorry my first post has to be here, in the bugs section but I find this one (apart from many others, sadly) very immersion breaking, and what’s even worse - a manifestation of someone’s both indolence and disrespect to the others’ magnificent job, and, in my opinion, very last thing that makes this game somewhat interesting - the sound design and voice over.
Outside of Rattay, on PS4 there’s an audio crackling, stuttering bug, which is obviously a bad programming issue that disregards a very well done voice acting (sometimes barely heard dialogue) and also the work done in the music since it’s breaking too.
My titual conclusion comes from frustrations I’ve had with this game, which seems to disguise itself as an old school rpg (not) but delivers a mediocre gameplay experience caused by badly designed mechanics (not to be mistaken with outdated). Broken lockpicking on ps4 since release? How long has it been? 3 years? Do your staff actually know how to code or you just implemented some ideas into Cry Engine and went for a beer? Simple things like walking and jumping seem broken, not to mention combat, which I have seen had been covered by lots of reasonable people.
Oh yeah, and the people - congratulations on gathering some of the most toxic gamers. There’s “wow, you’re just a ret**rd”, 12 years old vibe in here I see quite often and I cannot imagine how this is a good thing in a medium such as video games. It may help in adolescence but this is not, and shouldn’t be, my problem.
I’m sorry for harsh words but long have I been insulted so much with the medium I care less and less over the years since I started my journey with PC 80286 and Commander Keen or whatnot.
And I thought Skyrim was broken.
Give my regards to the actors, it’s been really refreshing to hear a good voice acting in a game that wants to be an RPG, nearly as much as Henry wants to avenge his parents. I would compare the dialogues with some of the old Lucas Arts adventure games, quality-wise but then again they’re ruined here by a bunch of bad (lazy? Who am I to judge) coders who thought it’s going to be a good idea to release a game along with a few DLCs, littered with bugs, poor design decisions, and a hope that some new kids will have right to mock the oldf*gs on how they’re incapable of playing “A REAL GAME”. This is far ignorant and I couldn’t care less.
To conclude, I would not and will not recommend this game to anyone. Sorry but it’s just insulting and painful to play. Not about difficulty. It’s simply a badly programmed game.
