As others have said, it loses its way a little toward the end but overall I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with the game.
A quick question regarding the end: Does the DLC explain what happens to Lucas or did I miss something about where he disappears to?
Not so much the ending, but the 2nd Banned Footage tape DLC has a level called 'Daughters' where, through Zoe's eyes, you get to play out how the Bakers became what they are. I haven't finished it yet, but it's pretty good.
Finally gritted my teeth and made some headway into this and extremely glad I did too; it's the most atmospheric game I've played since Alien: Isolation. Not that that's a coincidence of course, you can see the influence of that game everywhere. How great are the Bakers though? What could have been personality free spooks are instead riotous monsters that have made me laugh out loud quite a few times ("strawberry floating shitcock!"). The garage fight with Jack was especially great, first time round I didn't realise I could get in the car, so Jack nipped in instead and ran me over doing a donut.
I've got to the Jack fight where he pushes you into the pit/room with the body bags and it's kicking my arse. He's constantly up my arse so i can't get enough room to hit a body bag at him, then when I finally get to the part where I get the chainsaw he cuts all the body bags off and kills me
Bought this in the sale for £30. So far...... It reminds me of Condemned (Dreamcast) which I never got more then 5 minutes into as it was too scary.
I've just saved the game and I'm now looking for where to put my fuse.
It's horribly tense. Fear of jump scares, first person, no real defense, limited lighting. It's just very intense. I was fine with all previous Resident Evil games and Dead Space 1 and 2. I'll soldier on and hopefully get more weapons and used to the atmosphere.
Love the combat so far, that axe feels very nice to swing.
