Ratings and Reviews
Good game, not great controller compatibility
Bendy and the Ink Machine isn’t at all a bad game, it has its faults with it’s story line here and there, but then again all games do. The touch controls, in my experience, are great. They’re very fluent and easy to use, however if you’re someone like me who uses a controller, you’ll be happy to know this game supports Bluetooth controllers!
There’s a catch however, the game (as of writing this review), only has partial controller support. I use a Steelseries Nimbus controller, on this controller there’s a button for the Menu or to Pause the game. When clicked this button does nothing, the button isn’t broken, it’s just not being used. To pause the game you have to move your hand to the top left corner of the screen. The same goes for when an objective comes up, there’s no button to view the objective, so you have to touch it to open it. Other than those things I really have no complaints about the game, if you don’t mind the partial controller support, I’d recommend picking this one up.
Because of these issues, I give the game 4 stars. If this issue happens to be fixed, I would give it 5 stars.
Very Disappointing Bug at the End of Chapter 3
So I have never written a review before but I felt the need to here. First of all, I would have given this game 5 stars without a second thought if not for an awful bug at the end of chapter 3. I cannot proceed past chapter 3 into chapter 4, whenever I press the continue button and try to, the game crashes. I have also tried clicking the chapters button and accessing it from there. The same thing happens, the entire game crashes. I really want to finish this game because it is so well made, unique, and compelling. So, I urge the developers etc. to please fix this bug as soon as possible. As well as another one I encountered in chapter 3. So, in chapter 3 Boris is supposed to open the door to Alice Angel. However, he got stuck and wouldn’t move at an open door a few feet away from the one he was supposed to fix. By using the elevator and going to random floors and coming back, I was able to fix it. But it was still very annoying so please fix that too. Otherwise, the game is great and would 10/10 recommend.
Amazing but a few things
I know this is my third time editing this review but now that I have finally finished the full game, I can make a review on everything that I think needs to be fixed. So general gameplay and story is amazing! I really recommend to people who love survival/horror and I can’t wait for the sequel if there is one. There is just a few bugs that are really game breaking, or make it hard to beat in general. So first, the frame drops. They are really annoying, and happen mostly in chapter 4. Something that really needs to be fixed is Bertrum. His fight makes the frame rate drop dramatically and it makes it almost impossible to beat. It took me 10 minutes to beat him because I had like 5 FPS even at low quality. They really need to do something with it or maybe even remove it because I can’t even aim at the circle things that keep it together. So basically, I really only want them to do something with the quality so that in places where the frame rate usually drops, it’s not that bad. Thanks!
