Running and gunning won't get you very far in this game, although it does have its place, IIRC.

And, yes, it is a rather depressing game.

Yes

No. At least, not effectively.

This game is a story driven game. The mechanics work, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone based on that. It can also be very depressing at times. You might be better off with something like Uncharted or Gears of War.

I would give it more time. You are missing out on some much better sequences like straight out fights with other humans. There are some run and gun parts like when you are trapped in a building with a horde of clickers and bloaters. The fun part is in the variety of weapons and options. Also humans react realistically to your actions. Like if you take at one guy stealthy, his buddy starts freaking out and panicking.

The story is depressing, but very rich with characters. One of the few games that really had me emotionally invested at the end.

Yeah, it has a cool game world but the gameplay was pretty dull to me.

Looks nice! $70 for a remaster is a bit steep, but they also say it was "built from the ground up for PS5" so.... we'll see.

This would be an absolutely perfect selection to add to PS Plus Premium when it launches. Of course they probably won't, but the fact that the service exists is reason alone for me to wait. It will have to be coming there sooner or later.
And yeah, that is a VERY steep price for a game that anyone with PS Plus and a PS5 already owns. Even if it is a total rebuild - it's still the same game.
