The paramedics report that they were unable to find his eyes. We think he may have eaten them.
What I like:
- Somewhat interesting storyline, although very confusing.
- Great voice acting and dialogue.
What I don't like:
- Tons of bugs and crashing
- Repetetive level design
- Hard jumps and puzzles
- Constnat ear rape
- Screen flashing
- Constant annoying battles with those things
From what I actually played, it was a fantastic mod. Truly, one of the best on ModDB, in my opinion.
What could I have deducted five points for? The glitches!
I could only play for about 5-10 minutes at a time, if I was lucky, before the game would crash! I know the reason behind this is probably the Source Engine 2010 update, but that is supposed to be fixed now. I couldn't finish some levels because no matter what I did, it would crash. I had to "noclip" around portions of levels or else, it would crash. If I looked at certain points on the map, it would crash. If I touched certain objects, it would crash.
Maybe things will get fixed in the next release, I sure hope they do (I've based this review off of "v!.2"). When/if things get fixed, this is a must play mod! Great game play, fantastic voice acting, incredible storytelling, and a moving soundtrack are just some of the things this mod has to offer.
If you see "Korsakovia v!.2" in the "downloads" section, don't waste your time. But if you see a newer version, give it a try, you'll love it.
P.S. I would like to ask the people at "thechineseroom" to make the "Korsakovia" soundtrack available for download, just like they did for "Dear Esther."
Thanks for reading!
