Estranged Act 1 – My opinions

Okay, I’ve just completed the game, here’s what I posted on Steam itself on the game:

When I saw the screenshots, I was hoping it’d be one of these adventure games where you don’t shoot your way to end, but rather taking your time exploration and stuff like that.

Only for me to be little mislead… well you don’t really gun your way out until later on in game, and it doesn’t really last long (nor hard, it’s fairly easy as you play it carefully) but the starting is really good in eerie way, and the graphics are pretty great.

For deaf gamers, you’ll be glad it has closed captions, but then again this is Half Life 2 mod and Half Life 2 games has been amazing for those who are deaf / hard of hearing.

Overall, if I’d have to be bluntly honest, it’s nothing too special but personally as it was free, and I had fun of three hours (two play throughs, one natural another achievements) and the story (from what there is anyway) seems pretty decent, although I’d assume Act II is when it’ll shine.

So yeah, if you happen to enjoy adventure games with little amount of gunplay and mainly exploration/the story, give it a try at least. It’s free, so it’s not hurting your wallet anyway.
