Stranger Things 3: The Game (Limited Run #310) - PlayStation 4
About this deal
IMMEDIATELY DISCONTINUE use and consult a physician if you or your child experience any of the following symptoms: dizziness, altered vision, eye or muscle twitching, involuntary movements, loss of awareness, disorientation, or convulsions. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms. The decision to focus on a multiplayer core is severely neutered by having no online play. Sharing the mediocrity would be an improvement over slogging through it alone, but the size of the game demands too much for "couch co-op" to feel convenient or relevant. Rather than forcing my buddies to come over, we're going to all stay at home and play **** Valley online together instead. But this would only be a 6/10 with online multiplayer intact, so maybe its not a big issue?

Players replay scenes from the third season of Stranger Things. There are twelve playable characters from the series, each of whom has a unique weapon and abilities. The weapons can be upgraded using a crafting system.  Players can explore the open world,  but some areas are only accessible if players have recruited a specific character.  Up two characters can be active at a time; the second is controlled either by the computer or another player via local multiplayer. Players can switch between characters at any time. Combat is frequent and similar to Streets of Rage. It is played from an isometric viewpoint.  Development [ edit ] Stranger Things 3: The Gameis a note-for-note retelling of Stranger Thingsseason three, released day and date with the popular Netflix series. If you haven’t seen it, Stranger Things(the show) draws influence from several retro sources, most notably the novels of Stephen King and child-endangerment movies of the ’80s such as The Gooniesand Stand By Me.Similarly, the Stranger Thingsvideo game takes inspiration from games of days gone by, especially late SNES titles. This is a little ironic since the show is set in 1985, just before the Nintendo Entertainment System debuted in select markets in the U.S., and the Super NES graphics the game is imitating wouldn’t show up for another decade.I’m going to give the game two scores down below, one is for fans of the show who has seen Season 3 and the other is for new players or those who haven’t seen the show. My advice would be to actually watch the show then play the game, as you’ll have more context and understand it a little better. However, it’s not a requirement as the gameplay itself holds up and is fun to play both solo and with another person. If the developers are reading this – I would have personally liked them to have created a Stranger Things 1-3 game, incorporating all the key events from all three games so it was more accessible to everyone. Brown, Andy (2021-11-02). "Netflix Games app launches with two 'Stranger Things' titles". NME . Retrieved 2023-08-04. Developed by BonusXP, the team behind the original Stranger Things Mobile game and the upcoming The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, Stranger Things 3: The Game is almost a direct retelling of the latest season of the hit Netflix show. I would personally recommend you watch the TV show first, before playing this game, as there are certain things which presume prior knowledge, not only to seasons one and two, but season three as well.
