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, and 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 the constant performance issues pop up or the enemies don’t even bother spawning in and you can’t continue. I played the Prologue a while back and from what I can see it’s the same game with a lot of the same issues. 41 Hours is a mediocre first-person shooter that dares to be different but lands up fumbling the execution.
