The Quiet Man GS review - 2.0

Recommended Posts

https://www.gamespot.com/reviews/the-quiet-man-review-silent-but-not-golden/1900-6417030/

 

Goddamn

 

THE GOOD
 A deaf hero is a win for representation, even if the execution is wanting


THE BAD
 Simplistic, repetitive combat
 Wildly uneven difficulty
 Ridiculous, often bewildering story
 Tommy Wiseau-esque performances
 All-silent formal conceit is clumsily integrated and ineffective
 Bizarrely insensitive enemy demographics have disturbing implications for combat

 

 

I didn't even find out until recently that this was developed by Human Head, who made the original Prey and the cancelled Prey 2. I think its safe to say that they are done for.

Like I said, it had all the warnings of turning out to be The Room of videogames.

Edit: And nothing yet on PB, just the 1952 film w/ John Wayne :mexican:

It honestly looks too awful to even become a cult classic. But I've got a keen interest in trying this game, to get a first-hand look as just how shitty this game is. I mean I refuse to pay for it, but I doubt they expect many sales to begin with...

 

 

But, here's what is bizarre:

 

What a pitiable "The Good

- A deaf hero is a win for representation, even if the execution is wanting

 

 

Really, so if someone made a really shitty game to give your an idea of what it would be like to be  disabled (sayWheelchair simulator) would they still applaud the effort? :wonder:

I give the review 2/10. Nothing bothers me more when people use "simplistic" as a synonym for simple.

Simplistic isn't a synonym for simple nor did the review use it as such.
