This game is great!
Just finished it, only issue that I had was with the character shadows only at the first cutscene when they talk to each other.

The combat is not really frustrating compared to others games. The platform is also fine.
There is character developing. Rare thing to see with recent games.
The story is great, with funny and sad moments. And deep thoughts.

So what is the deal that this game is not so popular? People whining about the visuals? Or something else?

Anyway, this game just got on my list of replaying once while.

I got this game from Steam summer sale and I loved it. I expected this game to be just average Hollywood stylish rumbling through everything like macho action experience but I was positively surprised that characters and story were actually much deeper than that. Cinematic were great and characters had a lot more personality that I expected.

Even when most of game is basically big long escort mission developer were able to do it in the way that it did not frustrate at least me. Maybe am a little bit of knight my-self but at least I loved trying to save Tripikata time after time. That made this title unique and great.

OK, I just got one big issue here, and want to make sure if I'm not mistaken.
My net is very unstable today, because someone is doing a lazy job, so I decided to do another run with this game, got the "Steam couldn't not sync with cloud" message as usual when offline, but when I was in the game, it had nothing saved!
So I left alone, and tried again after got my net working, and my progress was there.

So, this is one of these games that need to be online to access your save? If not, you have to start from scratch? This sucks a lot!

No I have played this game in Steam offiline mode with no problem. When i go back online it automatically syncronize saves with Steam cloud. I think you have suffered some type of Steam cloud bug some other games have occassionally suffered from same type of bugs.

My guess is that Steam attempted syncronize saves from cloud and it got interrupted some way and that erased your local saves and bug made steam think that saves in cloud are newer than local saves.

I think you can also turn steam cloud syncronize off from preferences and game works just fine and dont syncronize to cloud.

Also files on hardrive could rarely get corrupted. Industry standard in hardrives are that average about one file in two million files get corrupted. If no more corruption occurs then hardrive is said to work as standard says. For this I mean when your computer saves file on harddrive chance to save it correctly is not actually 100% there is one chance in two million that file gets corrupted on average.

One underated game... probably next to Psychonauts!

Tried e-mailing the developers twice. No reply. About a year ago I found the game and mass effect on pc on an auction site here in Norway. It was in the "give away" section so yeah the lady gave away the games but I paid for postage. When I got it (STILL haven't played it) it turned out after some googling around that it's a rare european only PS3 press kit version with artwork that was supposedly only given to a few european journalists. It's like a book folder. Mint condition. Maybe worth something but I don't plan on selling it. Definately keeping it. Never played :)

Ow yes. I wonder why this game never got any publicity, it's awesome!

PS: Pigsy's perfect 10 sucks.

I wish the game had better gameplay though and wouldn't give you all the solutions for every area.
Shaidon Jul 18, 2014 @ 3:19pm 
And what could make it better?
And the game don't really give the solutions to every area, you have to figure it for yourself. Only at the begining and when it introduces a new mechanic there are tips, but that is common of any game.

@Shaidon

"Let me scan first!" followed with complete instructions etc. and the plattforming is just pressing A without any skill involved. :/ but to be honest the story was kind of weak too.
Shaidon Jul 18, 2014 @ 11:58pm 
That is not giving the solution, just show what is ahead. A lot of games have this fly by camera moments. And don't happens in "every area".
And the platforming is more for the Monkey to be.. well, a monkey! And some will require timing, or you might die, or get hurt. How was suppose to be, slippery? Holding a buttom?
The story is fine for me. Based on the chinese story.

Fly by Camera moving around all of time make my head hurt quite rapidly. It won’t make game unplayable but it is sometimes bit irritating.

Game mechacincs is about average what you see in action adventure games but story is what makes this game strong. Especially character interaction is strong and tied up very well to levels and story.
