That is not really the problem, as they're not the only one. Witcher 2, a so much praised "oldschool" RPG, developed for PC, is nothing but a cutscene ridden interactive movie. And quite a boring one if you ask me.
I give up. Some indies might get this right at some point.
besides bad corporate/greedy decisions, I wonder sometimes if the genre is not exhausted.
Overall not bad(which is amazing nowadays). But...
- Groundhog Day meets Aliens meets Crysis, while trying to setup an up coming video game. Anyone?
- General Brigham?.. Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy? Were there an actors strike during production?
- rule 1 in computer special effects. When it sucks, make it move faster with alot of camera movement.
