So I all nighter’d it and beat it.
My impressions after this first play through, on “Hurt Me Plenty”:
SPOILERS AHEAD; I CANT GET MY SPOILER BUTTON TO WORK ON MOBILE SO THIS IS YOUR WARNING.
The campaign is fantastic. The codex/data thing adds serious depth to the game, lore wise, and the the story is actually kinda entertaining. The artifacts in Hell add some really cool backstory to how you came to be where you are at the beginning of the game.
The gameplay itself is flawless, and every enemy is fun to fight. Pinky’s are actually kinda difficult, especially when paired with other demons. I love the demons designs, and the melee combat is brutal as hell. I mean, come on, you can rip a fucking hell knights head off and bludgeon a baron with his own antler thing. Who wouldn’t want to?
The characters are great, even if there’s only like really 4 characters in the game. Their lines are well delivered, and thanks to the codex, they’re actual character is very real to the the player.
The guns are “ohmyfuckinggod” great. I love every single one, and with the weapon mods, it makes the harrowing fights even better. They’re just enough to give you an edge, but they don’t make you a tank either, it’s very well balanced. You’ll still have your hands full, even WITH a full arsenal at your disposal.
My only cons are that I wish your character had personality, buuuttttt at the same time, I dunno how they’d manage that. I also wish that the chainsaw worked on smaller enemies without ammo dumps, even without fuel, and would only provide big kills and ammo dumps with the right amount of fuel.
Other than that, I was happy, and I love how it’s so open to a sequel.
