Summary

41 Hours is a fist person shooter with special powers like telekinesis, cloaking, and slow downtime. It clearly takes a lot from games like Crysis and boasts a somewhat open world where you can roam as you like, houses can be searched for loot like ammo and health. One major thing is you can create a wormhole to help navigate and take on some of the basic puzzle situations. You are joined by an Ai partner who can be commanded to blow up enemies etc. The whole game is just OK, you can see glimpses of it being a good shooter but then you get stuck on the scenery for the billionth time or you need to tweak a setting so you have to quit out and change it or the enemies don’t spawn and you can’t continue. As this is a free Prologue I hope it gets a bit more polish put in as it could be really good but atm it’s lacking and buggy.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
