Testament: The Order of High-Human Review Cons:

  • Graphics settings have two entries for effects quality.
  • The menus are not that smooth with the controller.
  • Cannot change the button prompts so it’s set to PlayStation and I’m using Xbox for example.
  • No benchmark test.
  • Got stuck several times as the game wouldn’t always recognize button presses.
  • Had the game shuffle between controller button prompts for different consoles.
  • The performance is not great, especially in built-up areas or if a lot is happening.
  • Sluggish combat.
  • Everything has a hefty weight to it.
  • Changing weapons are two different buttons which is another little thing to remember.
  • You have to press a button to pick up anything.
  • Breakable objects all look the same by which I mean some are Breakable and some are not.
  • Enemies’ difficulty is just more health and harder hits.
  • The Ai pathfinding is a bit all over the place.
  • You cannot fast-forward or skip certain interactions and cutscenes.
  • Checkpoints are mixed as they can be common or far and between.
  • A lot of invisible walls.
  • Just had the controller flat-out refuse to do things and with the flashing of the button prompts changing it made a horrible user experience.
  • The general pacing is all out of whack with platforming sections going on way too long and the open-world style stuff is short.

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!
