The Boos and Gems are one of those things I say I'll go back to but probably won't, I think I'd enjoy trying to figure out all the puzzles for them so never say never.

The puzzles for the Gems were mostly worth doing for the sake of doing them, granted. I wouldn't say the same about the Boos, and technically I think you get a bigger reward for getting them all.

Yeah, I hated B2. I was getting so frustrated at the controls - I couldn't get my head round them and that just made it worse. It was fine when there was no immediate threat and I could inevitably blunder my way to where I need to go, but the bit with the instant death enemies and then the boss were both just miserable experiences. I knew I had to beat it in one sitting or I'd never end up going back to the game. Laughing

I just beat the boss. Whoever programmed those controls and designed those enemies deserves a scheme bootin' - well put, that was a miserable experience indeed.  Thumbs Down...

All this is tell me is that Star Fox U's control scheme must have been really really bad for me not to like it. Laughing

Naughty SF zero's controls were great and LM3's B2 didn't bother me a whole lot either.

I had to look up which floor was Floor 7 because it got a lot of slagging from you guys, but I didn't think it was that bad - and I quite liked the boss (because I immediately clicked what I was supposed to do!). I'm on Floor 8 now but have been distracted by XC2 and periodic SSBU. That's what I found with LM2 as well, though - it was fun, but never quite sunk its claws into me for some reason. I'll probably sporadically do a few floors at a time until it's finito.

I feel like I slagged off Floor 7 too much now! It wasn't bad. Still preferred B2 though. Razz I did find it more gripping than LM2, but - yep, it's worse than both of those games.

I'm a few hours into this and its just charming. Wonderful animation, so much to find and beautiful lighting and details. The weird mix of awkward controls but easy gameplay isnt the nicest feeling, but I dont mind it enough to miss out on seeing more of this bonkers hotel.

So far, my second favourite game set in a hotel.

Level was bloody excellent. This game is really coming into its own in the second act; smarter puzzles, crazier ideas. Top tier.

This game isnt perfect by any stretch of the imagination but the ammount of Nintendo charm and genius in the puzzles, set pieces, animations and physics is pretty special.

I seem to be the only person who liked B2 more than 9F! I would agree that the game doesn't really go anywhere from 8F - that's the pinnacle IMO. It's still really good though.

I think you're summing up my thoughts on the game pretty solidly, Buska. The game is oozing with charm thanks to its overall presentation, but there's definitely some awkward game design choices in there. I've already bemoaned the controls elsewhere too, but it's still a fun time!

For everyone but Buska (later game spoilers):

Just gone back to this and played a couple of floors, namely 9F and B2. I have to admit I'm in the "everyone but Balladeer" camp on this - B2 wasn't bad but it was more of a pain in the arse than any of the other levels I can remember, and not in an especially good way. Though from the chat here, I braced myself for something much worse! I think it suffered from having following the Unnatural History Museum because that was cooool.

On to the tombs now!

I think by that bit I was in the mindset of "hurry up and get this finished with now". Sort of drained a good bit of my goodwill for the game, which was a shame.

Same! I think I said this elsewhere, but it is a bit of a First World Problems-y complaint. If I was a kid, stuck at home with one game to keep me going, I'd be so happy. It's only the fact that I'm a man whose almost 30, with limited free time and lots of games (not the target audience) that makes me think the game would be a better work with a few levels chopped out.

Aye - it's partly why I'm not considering buying a next-gen machine any time soon. I think I've been guilty of focusing too much of getting to the next game and getting through my backlog as opposed to enjoying all the great games I've got to play. I think issues about pacing and such might not be as big of an issue if I can get my mindset round to focusing more on the games themselves rather than the act of beating them.

I mean, none of that is going to happen as I'm now deeply ingrained into an MMO, but still...

Another reason why I'm leaning towards Xbox Series X as I can play my backlog on it, and any new games coming this year like your Cyberpunk or Valhalla will just get upgraded on the XSX that it feels like upgrading my graphics card or something.

Aye, I was thinking along those lines too before I thought "well, why not just play those old games on my current, perfectly fine machine"? Laughing

Anyway, totally off-topic. How's the game being treating you, Rum?

Be wise to move the chat elsewhere as what you're saying Jay is what could be the reason I get a PS5 instead as I can still play Halo Infinite etc on my One X (Hey I could still play Zelda on my Cube & WiiU) but the PS5 will have games that I can't play on the old machine eg HZD2, Silent Hill, GT7.

It's such a odd one that the anti-consumer approach could make one more enticing.

I finished it! You can see my thoughts in the 'last game you finished' thread but essentially my thoughts aligned with pretty much everyone else - great game, but only 8/10 great, mainly because of issues with pacing and controls.
