I need to get back to this, but yeah my initial reaction was letdown. I left off pretty early in, a section where you have to sneak by these big mechanical turret things that pace the hallways. I hate stealth shit like this, and I got annoyed w/ it and stopped playing.

I loaded up Old Blood over the weekend, and still cannot get past this stupid steal part. I'm really annoyed. It's lousy that the sequel to my favorite game of 2014 is turning out to be the 2015 game I find most frustrating. :?

the part - rather early on - with the like robotic guards that are wired to the ceiling. You have to shut them down to take them out. I just really hate forced stealth in games. It's not how I like to play at all. In fact it stresses me out. Not having fun with this game at all. Which is a surprise and a shame.

Honestly, The New Order was one of my favourite games of 2014 as well and I just can't get into The Old Blood either. I got past that robot stealth part (and I agree it sucked), but the game isn't really grabbing me. I don't know why... It just seems to me that it's just 'more of the same', which shouldn't be a problem if you know that going in, but it's taken all the bad/mediocre parts of The New Order in my opinion.

I feel like I'm playing a completely different game from you guys. The part where you knock out the super soldiers was easy, and the rest of the game has had enjoyable gunplay and rewards me for having fast reflexes by being able to take out a lot of guys before they raise alarms. So far the only thing that's annoyed me has been those shotgun guys who you can't instant kill, and that's mostly because they like to surprise me when I only have the pistol out and it takes two clips to kill them.

I wondered if Doom could top The New Order... but yep, pretty sure it will now.
