If you want to improve the game a billion percent then you must turn up the camera sensibility to max. I wish I'd learnt this before I finished the damn thing! Tch.

I prefer my cameras to have a dash of madness to them.

Tch, meant sensitivity.

Anyhoo, I loaded this up when my folks came around and it's the one game where my mum (who cannot detest games enough) was absolutely fascinated by it. So I pet Trico, jumped on his back, fed him and he sat there scratching his ear. My dad had to tell her he wanted to go home!

Got to say, I'm not really feeling this. The undeniably clever way they use Trico is great, but the game is just really clunky and not that much fun.

Yup
Given the long delays, it's rather what I expected it to be, really.

Try turning the camera speed to max to make it feel incrementally less clunky, but, yeah, the controls and camera are indefensible. Mind you, it's not the type of game that's fun like, say, GTA is fun or Rocket League is fun. If you're the type of person that can't see beyond the clunky nature of the controls and camera then this ain't for you (and whereas you do get used to them, they always remain a problem; even just when you're settled in and enjoying yourself some minor irritant will happen), but for everyone else it'll be spellbinding by the end.

Eh, not everything has to explode to be fun (pfnarr) - I loved Firewatch and Eeerbody at da Rapture, for example.

This is just a bit dull.

I wouldn't call Everyone Goes to the Rapture "fun" (lord knows it's painfully dull) the same way I wouldn't call, say, ICO fun.

Ah, see, I thought it was fascinating.

Rip through it and sell it to me.

Just finished this...

It's so close to being superb but the controls just ruin it at times.

There were several times where the game flowed beautifully and Trico is spectacular to see in motion but my god... the times where I swore at the TV for it to listen to me...

I'm glad I played through it but I'd find it hard to recommend.
