Mod Review on Aug 26th, 2012 - 8 people agree 5 people don't
When I first saw images/screenshots of GREY, I really knew that this will be something I would wait for and play on its release date.
Good things first:
It has a very nice art design, the levels are are creepy and really creative.
Stig's Voiceacting for GREY is stunning, he sounds believable. Other voice actors also do a great job.
The monster designs really reminded me of the good ol' Silent Hill days. Great job there.
The challenges are a nice addition and something not really seen that often.
But that already is all good I have to write down here.
Overall, the mod felt very unstatisfying.
The level/puzzle design was very confusing most of the times, I'm thankful that I accidently clicked some notes I would have never even noticed on my journey.
The balancing is also a huge downpoint. The weapons feel like they burst out air and you can't really tell big differences between all weapon types.
Another point that kept bugging me was the main character that had to comment every little thing, sure this is a nice thing to add, but why doesn't he comments on the first monster he meets or on other creepy/f**ked up **** that happens?
I see the direction you were trying to go there, but in the end it was all a pretty big letdown.
EDIT: I brought myself together to finish the HARD Mode, so here is what I have to say:
The Hard Mode is definately overall the way better campaign, now the normal looks even more ****** than before.
The scares were better, the mood more frightening and the puzzles more creative.
The ending was definately more satisfying, but not really that awesome either.
Most stuff you already kinda expected, but wouldn't give a **** about, hence the main game builds no connection between the player and the character.
