Most of this game does a great job or bringing back the wonderful environments from the pre rendered games. Dripping in detail, and often telling a story with blood splatters, bodies, debris, wreckage etc. The gas station with Leon was a great start. Lots of details with the product on the shelves, signage, store fixtures, drink coolers and make shift barricades etc. It felt remarkably like a real world gas station.
This all had me super pumped to see the gun shop in a similar way. After leaving the garage you see its barred windows, good start. As soon as you step inside it's super lame though. Other than 2 banners nothing inside makes it really look like a gun shop at all. While the gas station had detailed aisles of snacks, canned food, sundries, cigarettes, magazine racks etc. The gun store is pretty much complete devoid of anything at all. No believable cases, safes, or racks for guns. No firearm or hunting related products. The front of the store is barred. The back is wide open. Seriously there is no door, just a big opening, no roll up door, no tracks for one, no hinges nothing, it was just designed with a gaping hole in the back. This, area was super disappointing and felt really phoned in.
Anyone else have any similar nitpicks?
I finally got rid of that big white box.
