The Nomad Soul was such a strange game I remember playing it back in 99 and being enthralled by it. You are 100% correct on how badly its aged....talk about boxy polygons, but at the time I thought it was the **** ...so to speak.I like them well enough. I've only played Omikron: The Nomad Soul, Fahrenheit, and just a little bit into Heavy Rain so far. I do also own Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human, but haven't got around to them yet.
While they can be laughable and groan worthy at times, I always find a lot to be liked in them. I find them at leats quite interesting if not completely enjoyable all the time. I think Nomad Soul is my favorite. A game with an identity crisis (is it a shooter or a fighter or and adventure?) for sure, but a neat world and premise and of course Bowie. Hasn't aged well though. I'd love a remake.
Hello, yes the combat was awful in Fahrenheit, but I love that game. The Nomad Soul is a difficult one to replay....I started playing it with anticipation a few months back but, like you, surrendered to its aged graphics and controls.Welcome to the forums @LFW I enjoyed Fahrenheit a lot as it had a nice flow and you had to think on your feet so to speak. I do believe I found the ending to be a bit meh, but I can't remember quite away. Perhaps the combat was particularly bad at the last act.
Omikron: The Nomad Soul I tried recently for the first time and it is quite clunky. I stopped playing after beating some robot in a warehouse, but I might pick it up in the future again. Music is great and the story seems interesting, I'm just not so sure about the rest.
