I also don't know what they're trying to accomplish with the bright snow environment, but that's also something that doesn't work very well. How are we supposed to be scared when we see/ are exposed to everything? Half of what made the first two scary was the lighting/darkness of it.
Hopefully it's only a small part of the game.
I know what you mean about the outside environments. I played that part listening to the theme from The Thing (the good one) and it made it more enjoyable.
Has anyone beaten hardcore mode in DS2? I've been thinking about giving it a shot before DS3 comes out after reading what 3's hardcore mode is like.
