I do not recommend: Atomic Heart (Review) [PC 4k]

Atomic Heart is full of ideas but like the machine you’re fighting, all of them suffer some critical malfunction. The result is a game that feels thrown together, poorly balanced and lacking in vision. There are some things to enjoy here, but the overall package is just bit of a mess and I can’t recommend it.

    Just another confirmation that art direction appreciation it's subjective, I for one love the art style used

    i agree about the open world but i think the bunker sections are rather cool and oddly enough i like the writing because it’s unabashedly stupid. part of me misses dumb, macho and immature writing like the old Duke Nukem games.
    this game definitely isn’t very original other then some of its visuals, i’ve seen everything it does done better elsewhere (except for the item sucking, i love that) but i think it’s a solid double A video game and i hope these developers can creat something even better next time!

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but you are way off on this one. I'm not sure what u were expecting from this game. It's an easy 8 and probably a 9 tbh

    Your taste aligns very close to mine, but I think you're wrong on this one. It's a very fun game with a cool story, and the main character is cringe instead of silent. It's a great bioshock clone with Russian skin.

    Playing it I'm am really enjoying it. Not a perfect game but it's art direction is the one thing that keeps you motivated. There was a patch the 1st day of 67gb. Maybe a lot of bugs were worked out. Can't tell just started on the second day out.

    Low FOV with no way to change it, mouse acceleration with no way to turn it off… on an AAA 1st person shooter in 2023, this is just pathetic.

    And about the low FOV, is this written by the same people who play with 45 FOV on their GOD PS 5?

    Except there is no mouse acceleration and if you messed with the sensitivity settings you would notice that immediately.

    5:21 Incorrect statements like this are still pissing me off so much. Yeah, ofc an FOV slider has an impact on performance. EVERY graphics option impact the game performance in some way. Its an issue devs have to solve via optimization. But some devs dont care, or are incapable, and it wont change if you keep making excuses like this.

    The same is happening with movies. We create something based on checklists instead of on idea's.

    Your note about the art direction sounds like you haven’t visited any post Soviet societies. They literally mix the old with the new.

    Same can be said about having high tech security cameras on old 600 year old buildings in watchdogs legion. It’s the same thing.

    Played for an hour or so last night and I am pretty impressed so far. The visuals are fantastic. Gameplay pretty good too, or at least totally passable. So far I am interested in the world and the lore. I guess I will have to keep pushing on and see if I start to fall off.

    I think a mod with fov slider, repair drone infinite spawn fix and rebalanced enemy health and enemy damage would improve the experience so much. It feels like a bethesda game in that sense that you need modders to fix this.

    Really glad I decided to watch this game on a livestream and not buy it right away. It looked great in trailers but when I seen it being played it just looked so boring. It has these segments where it seems like it is just padding out the gameplay by having waves of enemies, tons of puzzles, and slow moving game events. The combat seemed fun but also repetitive and the enemies weren't that varied. Think it's worth a play sometime in the future when the game drops in price.

    I agree with commenters talking about art design, the juxtaposition of new tech and is something seen often with sci fi especially eastern euro types. Also the va in russian is wayyyyyy better than english, similar to how botw japanese va’s are better than english. Makes it more immersed. Also its funny how the main character gets points knocked for being stupid when many many first person shooters dont even try with their mc

    The devs of this game are just giving us more of what the kids now have been brainwashed to want. Lots of eye candy and run around quelling our ADD for a few hours before moving on to the next game.
