Could have been much better.

See...this is by all means a very visually beautiful piece of work. Your level design is much better this time around, and it actually resembles certain environments instead of lots of platforms for platforms' sake.

Several things that annoy me though:
You're still on the old "kill enough people to advance" system. Personally, I'd much prefer having to solve certain objectives (finding key, blowing up door, etc.) instead. I understand that you've been experimenting several things while leaving others to tradition, but this system in particular has been duplicated in nearly every shooting game.

Your weapon system is also quite aggravating. First of all, picking up weapons and having only two of them is one step for realism, but I can't tell all of what I have on hand and how much ammunition I have left on that at any moment. Not being allowed to bash people with eventually empty weapons makes it worse. Personally, I find Thing Thing 2's ammo system more appropriate here, so you can pick up better weapons if you want but won't have to care about ammo too much in the process.

Even on the lowest quality setting i still found myself playing a skipping Thing-Thing 4. When i first saw this, i had my hopes up, because the games just got better and better. This however, dissapointed me. The ammo was hard to pick up, i got swarmed too often, and the rate of fire was horrible. I think we all know an ak-47 (although slow) fires faster than that.

There were graphic improvements however. New costume options were a definite plus. during the short periods of time i had between each level when i wasnt completely swarmed with enemies gameplay was smooth. gore was updated, but, not so much. as much as i love brutal headshots, hearing the same grotesque slpat everytime i land a kill get annoying. so does the piling up of bodies and brains mixed with spent shells.

Overall, a good game. i can see the effort, and i noted the health bar was now transformed into a Gears of War style fade-in-and-out logo.

great game but..

i am a fan of the thing thing series and this one is a great additiion but their was just hardly anythingi new. i like how you have to switch weapons now, but at the same time i hate it as much. because i like to get all the weapons and know i can just switch back to it when i get the ammo for it, and like farmaggedon said, it adds in the replay value. however because of it i found it the game a little more difficult so it sorta made it funner.

i actually enjoyed the blood when near death part, where i understand where farmaggedon is going at, i didnt mind it as much. again it made it harder and more fun for me.

overall it was really fun but their just wasnt that much added. i was hoping like maybe a couple of double weapons and like you can push shift or something to cross shot, or maybe some stuff you can take cover, or things to shoot that falls down or eplode to help kill enemies. i was kinda hoping/expeectings stuff like that.

also again i agree with farmaggedon in regarding the doors. i would prefer it if i could open it through explosions or finding a key or maybe killing the "door guard" or something.

over all it was still just a great game. just a lot like the others with not much additions as far as something totally new.

oh and also, unless i didnt noticed, you guys took out my favorite head. the one with all the bandages, mummy face. :(
