Seems like the demo can only be completed in stealth... lame. Bethesda's "HEY, LOOK! THIS IS NOT AN ACTION GAME AT ALL!!" marketing has been getting on my nerves for a while.


At least the booth looks awesome

preview from metro

what really bugged me about this is how they complained about not only the graphics which is better than low framerates and bugs is that the game isnt scary, tew wasnt meant to be scary it was supposed to be intense and having to think on your feet and conserve your ammo, they should just play outlast or those other indie games

you can farm defeated enemies for health-restoring ‘green gel’ and other items.

Oh, and you can also restore all your health in one by drinking a cup of the world’s slowest percolating coffee.


... I hate this.

They're really not wrong about the graphics, though. I keep telling you guys...

And that's why everyone should start on Nightmare. There is a reason it's unlocked from the get-go, and that Johanas recommends it for those who played TEW1.

However, I have a sneaking suspicion that this journalist had a brain fart, green gel is the leveling up currency. Why the hell would it heal you too? Might as well not have medical supplies drop from enemies... This sounds hilariously broken, which is why I believe it might be a mistake by the writer.

As for graphics, it's pretty clear from the videos that it's a big step up from the first game technically. Artistically tho? I'll reserve my judgement until we see a new environment.

Glad to hear that FPS is solid.


EDIT: Does the game have a chapter system or no? Too many conflicting reports...

The guy also said that the matches from the last game were used to burn enemies before they come back to life, and apparently the enemies didn't come back alive in this one. Did they play the original game? That never happened. Matches were used to burn nearby enemies that were still alive. There was no crimson head mechanic

Exactly. To me that took away a lot of credibility from the article. So far I'm only accepting things that are concrete.

The Metro hands on is a bit shoddy and unreliable but it does make it sound like TEW2 is going to start similarly to the first one, in that you are empty handed and have to run from a sadist like enemy before the game gives you all the fun stuff. Hope that's the writers mistake because that's something I would've loved to see changed from the first game.

Gotta agree with gmc1992 about not playing these games for set piece scares but for the long term tension inflicted by the mechanics.
