Am I alone on absolutely HATING the new TM story?
05/28/14 at 05:28:37
 
After going through the single player campaign, I felt my childhood get kicked in the nuts with a story that just outright mutilates everything I loved in the series (especially Sweet Tooth having a gang now). Am I all alone on this?
P.S. Please don't lynch me

No a lot of people hated the campaign. I didn't like it either. I didn't care that much about the story.

It wasn't BAD, there just should have been more.  The 3 stories in TMX were equivalent to 3 stories from TM: Black.  It sucked because there weren't any other drivers to play for the stories, they tried to create a suspenseful action film type campaign, and the stories were hardly canon to previous games at all.  At least TM1, TM2, TM:B, and TM:HO have, for the most part, interconnected stories while TMX just seemed random most of the time.  It truly made the game feel more of a reboot in hopes of a sequel.

I felt things should've stayed to CGI-FMVs.

These endings and stories are just about as corny as the TM1 endings was, only with better effects since then.

This game felt like to me, TM1 mechanics meets TMB-like atmosphere, with TMHO shitty frosting.

Well we can agree on the fact that this game is better than TM3/4, and arguably HO. The story and structure of HO is spot on, but the mechanics were lacking. TMPS3 had good mechanics, but changed too much of the story. Well the mechanics were unpolished, but I think they had a good mix of TM2 and Black.
You know what? Unpolished is the perfect word for this game. It needed a few more months for development and testing, and I bet it would have done a hell of a lot better.
Personally I think they should release the online for PS4, and just up the graphics, let the game run at 60fps, and polish the online. It would make a killing, because PS4 is desperately lacking in titles at this point besides Wolfenstein.

Watching the deleted scenes you can see where they were going with a lot of it and it makes the entire scope of the story more enjoyable..at least to me.

I liked the characters' stories... I just feel that 3 characters (unless one counts The Preacher) simply isn't enough, and the faction thing, while slightly cool, doesn't really belong to this series. I know that this is a reboot and that they tried something new, but they should have rebooted the story, and not how the tournament works.

they worked on the MP 1st, so yeah

that's why it was meh

i had a blast for what was given, was it short? yeah; but was it  the greatest? no

should've had more

also keep in perspective that the MP was worked on 1st

cons:

unbalanced weapons
AI abusing the magic crap (power down and shielding like a bunch of pussies)
AI all out to get you and you only (didn't have that problem in TMB and HO)
shield lasts for a few seconds

also what was so bad about TMHO, i've found it really good and a legitimate sequel to TM2

I enjoyed Sweet Tooth's story and Dollface's was quite good as well.

I found the whole Grimm story kinda dull, especially when you compare that to what we got in TMB (and the original Grim Reaper storylines).

Preacher just felt like a totally unfinished mess that wasn't fully realised and was just added to part of Grimm's story to fill it out.

I always felt that no single character from TMX had a story that came close to their equivalent in TMB.

I enjoyed the story over all, but like most I felt it was incomplete. Preacher seemed like he had a lot more to him than what was cast.

I did miss discovering about multiple characters but the faction play made it fresh and interesting to me.

It would have been fun if the faction element had been played into the story more but the cut scenes hardly ever showed anything like that.

I think the exception was the scene with Dollface sitting in a Juggernaut with a minion next to her.

A shame.

I personally wouldn't have a problem with this idea been dropped if another TM was to come out...
