Jackson - The Overlook Tips and Strategy

Using Listening Mode

Listen Mode.png
Listen Mode is one of your greatest tools for surviving, as it allows you to scout out the area instead of jumping blindly into danger. It can be used by holding the R1 button (default), and it will cause you to walk slowly and see blurry white outlines of enemies.

    • I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
