So I’ve been watching the reviews pretty closely on this game from users, _not_ critics. And I’m finding that most are basically saying it’s a walking simulator where you essentially traverse and deliver packages/items to certain drop points with mixed cut scenes. Now, I’m sure there’s much more content to this based off what others are saying. Hideo is always known to insert diverse thematic events for cut scenes, which have always been very well done with the Metal gear series, which is really telling a story in itself. But the gameplay itself for Death Stranding seems like it’s actually not a game at all, it’s more of a journey that opens up to different venues and characters.
I’m not knocking this game at all, just giving my brief observations based off reading dozens of user reviews, but I will say this, if there was one game that really has me on the fence of what to do, Death Stranding has my interest piqued and yet, I may hold off on this one momentarily.
