I clocked in about 3 hours yesterday, and have played for 2 hours today, and I gotta say I really like the map so far. There’s tons of fun stuff to explore and find, lots of using existing mechanics in seemingly new ways to give it some flair, there’s a load of disguises to find, and to top it off, it’s a beautiful location.
I also quite appreciated what Marta was talking about on the latest stream, where the mission sort of leads you along automatically if you let it. It made for a very smooth first playthrough, without the usual confusion and feeling of being overwhelmed.
I do have some minor quibbles, but since I haven’t played that much I can’t be sure I just haven’t missed somethinh, but for instance, getting up on the building with the radio tower is only possible by the staircase? It really needs an agility option to climb up. Likewise I am surprised you can’t climb the fence at some spot.
I also find the storm a bit intrusive and distracting. At the very least the sound of it should be turned down a notch. It’s borderline annoying.
Oh, and the water effect bug that was present in the jacuzzi in Santa Fortuna is here as well, but on a massive scale when you’re in the server room looking through the windows.
So far I think this is what Bangkok should have been.
