You guys really need to switch your attitude and stop relying on shitty reviews. I feel like if Silent Hills would have happened Konami hate wouldn't be as strong as it is now.

But it DIDN'T happen, because Konami is the worst company in the industry at the moment so people are rightfully pissed at it. What you are doing is like saying "well if that guy hadn't thrown dog shit at you then you wouldn't hate him", perhaps, but he did do that so fuck him. Konamis list of anti consumer behavior is so long you could write a book about it, and that is not even including the shit they do behind the scenes. When I saw this topic I did not see that it was a Konami game, if I had seen it my first reply would have been "mate, its Konami, wtf you expect, and good lord did you just pay that price for a Konami game that looks like THIS?"

 

I am almost insulted that you made me look up a Konami game because I thought this was just some obscure indie game that may be worth a damn after a price reduction. Hell Jim Sterling ripped this game a new one, and if a game is so bad that Jim Sterling can take the piss out of it so easily and make sound arguments doing it, then it is a lost cause. Jim Sterling isn't exactly the sharpest tool in the box, whenever he slams a game he just dislikes for some petty personal reasons it becomes instantly obvious for the viewers, which is not the case here, I mean one hard look is all it takes to give this game a hard no. At this point, if you want more people to join this thing, you would have to buy the game for them, or wait until it is so cheap that the junk hunters pick it up.

Just for what they did to Kojima they are fucked for life, they could produce a 10/10 next year people will forever hate them, I mean MGS is one of the most beloved franchises of all time and they completely made a mockery out of it, people don't forget shit like that, that's their childhood you're stepping on, they're in eternal hell now and they deserve it 😈.

Pretty much. I'm sorry you paid full price for this game

Don't be. Fucking enjoying it. Worth every penny. Got my collectors pin I won from the Konami live stream. Really glad I bought this and especially for PS4 since that's what they streamed.

Man, what a thread to read!!! It's been one hell of a breakfast!!

 

Jokes aside, @Teh_Paralyzer, it's kind of hard to make people to play something they don't want to. I'm glad you are enjoying it and all, but, as many have stated before, this game doesn't match the price for what's offering. I had even forgotten about it were it not for this thread, and then went to watch the trailer again, only to remember that it feels way too generic. And you even said it,

It's pretty good but due to it being a mobile free to play it relies on Microtransactions

 

IT WAS A MOBILE FREE TO PLAY!!! Why don't they tune it up for console if it won't have MTX? What guarantee do you have it won't have MTX one month from here?

 

Stop blaming the reviews, some of us don't even read them before deciding what games to play. Metal Gear Survive failed due to the fanbase and the company's hubris. As a survival game, yeah, it may work just as fine as a tuned car, but as a METAL GEAR game, it has no place in the franchise. It's literally a reuse of previous game assets (which they owned, of course), and they basically gave it the chinese knockoff treatment, killling the entire concept of stealth game in the process.

 

Even while reading every post here, it looked like you were trying to get that sweet Konami money by over-selling the game. It will be difficult for players to grab this game. I bet it will be the same as Drawn to Death, where it will be more played when people get it on the montlhy PS+ lineup, and even then many willl complain about it.

For Castlevania I have no guarantee. If it dropped on consoles the way it's built now then it would sadly be trash regardless. I agree with everyone that it was the wrong way to go but what I'm saying it does have things in it that WOULD be potentially a good game. I was enjoying what I played but in no way will I drop a dime on it. 

 

I wouldn't get a penny if I got everyone here to buy the game. So don't jump to that conclusion. 

 

I just want these damn online trophies and it's hard when me and a few randoms are struggling to find anyone who bought this game.

It already dropped on consoles, in the previous generation... it was called "Harmony of Despair". This seems to be a spiritual successor. HoD didn't have microtransactions and it was IGA's final Castlevania game. Personally i loved it, but it's one of those games that suck your life for weeks or get boring quite fast.

Konami need to make a proper Contra game. I played it at TGS, it's not Contra at all. More like a 4 player less fun version of Dead Nation. The gun cool down thing absolutely sucks and why is there jumping in a twin stick shooter?! No plans to buy it to be honest.

 I bought it on sale, seemed ok at first,but from chapter 2 its just poor, already re-using 2 areas from chapter 1, totally piss poor, along with the abundaqnce of re-using the same bosses in multiple levels, if whole campaign is gonna be like this, then what rubbish, Online is so not needed and anyway you need 8 to start and its basically 2 modes at random, both equally boring, did they sriously think it would be popular xD 

 

will indeed plat this to get what i paid for but the enjoyment isn't there

If anyone still needs any contra rogue corps multiplayer trophies, just let me know. We have a boosting group that’s been running for the last few months. Thanks

This is another example of what Konami looks like without Hideo Kojima.  I wouldn’t play this if you gave it to me, with a trophy list of 49 golds and a platinum.  And this is coming from a Contra fan.

 

Regardless of who was the good guy/bad guy in the Konami Vs. Kojima Productions saga, letting him go was not a good business move.

Believe it or not, it isn't that bad! Who woulda thunk it.

I played the demo for this and whilst there are some extremely brief flashes of fun, overall it's complete ass gravy and a dreadful game that deserved all the terrible reviews it got.

What makes it a bad game? 

No one ever seems to say why. 

What makes it good:

easy to learn. 

Fun mechanics

Great gun customization

4 playable characters with a different skill

Addictive loot system.

4 player coop. I did all solo though. But having that option can only be a good thing.

 

Things i thought were bad:

Body parts "upgrade system" via the doctors

Lack of level ideas

Some minor irritating things that could addressed. Main one being unable to walk or dash of an edge(invisible wall) unless jumping. 

 

This is from someone who has the plat.

All right then, here's my list of complaints: Horrible controls, the pointless and highly irritating overheat mechanic, lame character designs, lousy camera, bad targeting, unfunny humour, uninspired level design and dated graphics that are about a decade behind the times.

Okay, fair enough. 

In it's defense though:

1. Horrible controls - They are practically the same as any other shooter. R2 shoot, left stick move, right stick aim, X jump... 

 

2. Overheat mechanic - Tbh, playing only the demo would probably make anyone hate the overheat system (terrible marketing). This system is justified being there because... as you gain gear(body parts) and B.A.D.(weapon parts) you will find perks such as:

- more damage with a higher OH(overheat) gauge.

- more speed etc... 

These are usually given as a +%.

Then you have two weapons which you are supposed to switch between. You will find perks such as:

- more damage after changing weapons.

- gain X ability after changing weapons etc.

Not a pointless mechanic. 

Also it adds a little difficulty to what is a very easy game.

 

3. Lame character designs - meh... subjective...

 

4. lousy camera - think I had maybe 1 instance when the camera caused me an issue. Had way more with other AAA games.

 

5. Bad targetting - you aim with the right stick, and it also gives a slight auto aim. 

If its bad, probably a player problem. 

 

6. Unfunny humour - No comment... (I skipped every cutscene -_-). Again though - Subjective.

 

7. Level designs - Sure I can agree. They get repeated a lot. 

 

8. Dated graphics - really? This is a problem for you? This is a Nintendo Switch game. What do you expect -_-;

 

Yeah... that was my experience anyway. 

 

++++ For trophy hunters ++++

1. No missables

2. No collectables

3. Can finish the platinum without needing to grind for Legendaries. 

4. Each mission will take around 10~15mins. Do a mission a day, or whenever you want to do carefree trophy hunting. 

5. Except the online trophies. The main game and all other trophies can be obtained solo. 

6. You can get all online trophies in about 1~2hours. Easy.
