I purchased Gen Zero a day ago, and had been playing it for about 6 hours now, and the most annoying issue I had thus far was with how stiff, and at times, unresponsive character movement is. It seems they’re made to be simple and straightforward, however, that doesn’t seem to be the best option for this game.
For example, if you’re more of a loot goblin and an explorer, such as myself, you’re only bound to get yourself stuck in one place or a corner, or another. And the only way to get yourself out of such a situation, at least one that works so far, is to set an explosive gas tank (which should probably be only called “gas tank”, because nobody in their right mind would keep an item in their housing for their stoves or heating with a name “explosive gas tank”), near yourself, and shoot it until you’re downed and can revive yourself, just so you get unstuck from under a pier or from between bales of hay.
Getting off a bike also is an issue as it doesn’t work properly, making it more of a death trap if you stumble upon enemies somewhere along the way.
That could be solved with more dynamic character movements, such as cliff grabbing, or (but optional), sliding, like how it is done in the game Apex Legends.
Other than that issue, I had noticed that aiming down a scope with some guns, such as shotgun, it is near to impossible to look anywhere else other than straight ahead of yourself. Menu and inventory as well need to be fixed up so that they don’t act like you’re playing it on a console, aka. having preset buttons [Y] and [C] to swap the tabs. There is also an issue with character beign rotated when simply moving your mouse without the right mouse button being touched at all, but that’s just a minor thing.
All in all, that is what I can say for now, and I hope those things get changed up and fixed soon enough, so that the gameplay feels just as right and fitting to it’s world design and graphical side, which is just damn stunning and beautiful.
