An open letter to Glu
You had an excellent, evolving, engaging and popular product with DH14 that kept getting better and better, with many, many loyal followers.
Then you released DH16, which to any rational mind - given the advanced technology available over a two (plus) year gap between the games - should be a far superior product. But it is far from an improvement. It's gone backwards in so many ways.
If you put these games (DH14 and DH16) side by side in front of a bunch of pre-school kids and asked them which came first - guess what? Your 14 product wins hands down every time.
These two games are not a succession of improvement. They are two totally different offerings. Let's put aside the intricacies of DH14 such as energy drinks, rare animal calls, infra-red batteries and hollow points. And focus on the game play - DH14 has superiority over 16 in many other areas such as graphics, rendering, detail, scenery, movement and overall look and feel of the landscape and animals involved in the hunts.
And don't get me started on the prices you are trying to charge for weapons to complete special events! I can go and buy a top shelf X-Box game for what it would cost me to finish your special hunt series that takes about 20 minutes.
Glu, what I'm upset about most is that the loyal, dedicated players of DH14 have been let down. How can you put out a product that is, by any test, a poor imitation of its predecessor. It beggars belief. DH16 should be called DH2001 in comparison to DH14. And you can't play it off line? *** This is an app!
Glu - please re-think DH16. You've got it very wrong so far. And you could have got it so right!...
