❤ Designers Improved Puzzle Mechanics

Players praise the game's puzzles as a significant improvement over previous entries. They note the puzzles "actually make sense" and require thoughtful problem-solving, such as using items and environmental interactions in clever ways to progress through levels. This provides a more engaging and satisfying experience compared to past games in the series.

❤ New Drone Feature Divides Opinions

The addition of a drone mechanic receives a mixed response from players. Some find the new feature interesting and ripe for creative puzzle design. However, others criticize the controls as "clunky" and "buggy," making certain drone-focused sequences frustrating. While the drone mechanic shows promise, the review suggests the developers need to refine and polish this system further.

❤ Intense Chase Sequences Captivate and Frustrate

The review highlights the game's intense chase sequences, particularly the "Hellish Bittergiggle chase," as a gameplay highlight. Players describe these chases as "enjoyably difficult," creating a sense of thrill and tension. However, some note issues with the controls and character hitboxes, leading to unfair deaths and disrupting the pacing. The review indicates these chase scenes are a step in the right direction, but could use additional refinement.

❤ Increased Horror Elements Immerse Players

Compared to previous installments, players applaud the game's heightened sense of horror and dread. They appreciate the developers' ability to deliver genuinely scary moments, which contributes to a more immersive and tense atmosphere. This shift towards a stronger horror element is widely praised, as it helps differentiate the game and provide a more well-rounded experience.

❤ Narrative and Characters Elevate the Experience

While the gameplay is the primary focus, the review also highlights improvements in the game's narrative and character development. The introduction of new characters, such as Syringeon, and the emotional treatment of established ones, like the death of Bittergiggle, are praised for adding depth and weight to the story. The review suggests the developers are taking steps to strengthen the series' storytelling and character arcs, complementing the gameplay experience.
