Having endured a previous Outbreak title in the form of Epidemic, I’ll say my enthusiasm for checking out Endless Nightmares was limited. While credit goes to the lone wolf developer behind the series for tackling some ambitious game designs, intended to fit into the mold of the older-school Resident Evil titles, when it comes to execution there’s no getting around pretty well all aspects of the game being a mess. Conceptually trying to add some unpredictable roguelike elements to the mix could have been a good move, and my hope would be that would allow him to simplify things and get down to solid core gameplay… but alas that’s not the case. Perhaps some patching can help get it onto tolerable footing but honestly this doesn’t feel like it is even release-ready.
