Yeah once I got the blue spade key I kept running around in circles trying to find my way back to the main hall.

Loved it though, day one providing I finish RDR2 by then.

Ah... you’ll be benefiting from 60fps, at least.

Bit disappointed with your first impression, tbh. I also wanted the best looking game ever, but if it can’t compete with the likes of God of War or what we’ve seen of The Last of Us 2, then... :-(

I think it looks great, the character models, animation, lighting and photogramic textures are all lovely.

This will look great on Photek's Xbox One X.

A Switch port would be amazing, how does the Switch hardware compare to a GPD WIN2 device?

I'm guessing the processor in the win god which is an Intel M3 will be better than the switch's but the switch has more graphics power although it's pretty hard to say because I'm lazy and can't be bothered looking up figures.

Don’t like it taking 3-4 headshots to kill a zombie.

I think the timed aspect of the demo was a mistake, as I also rushed through to avoid running out of time. This really detracted from the tension and horror aspects of the game.

Overall I was a bit disappointed with the demo, but I can't quite put my finger on why. I did like what they've done with the police station though, it has enough similarities to be familiar but also has enough changes in that you don't immediately feel comfortable and know where to go.

After getting bitten by a zombie from the behind, I make sure I shoot every single dead body in the head in case they wake and looking for snacks.

The "it takes 4 headshots" its only a handgun. The original took a good 4 handgun shots to take one down. Managed to get to the 3rd floor but ran out of time. Zombies heads wont just explode. Also use the knife as a defence weapon. I loved it. Literally counting the days

I slashed away at any zombie I could see on the ground before they got up. the shotgun is pretty fun to use, makes loads of mess

Was the shotgun in the weapons locker? I found the keycard but couldn't find the door :lol:

Yes it was in the weapons locker. It is in the same room where you open the staffs’ lockers.

Just tried it out (PS4 Pro)and really liked what I have seen so far. My only problem is the HDR is really washed out, I ended up turning it off and it looked much better....anyone else had that?

Looks like the HDR is poorly implemented like in Red Dead Redemption 2, at least in this demo version.

Shame, hopefully this will be fixed for the main release.
