That, and always going back to base between levels kills the pacing entirely.I think I am doing the same. I keep watching videos of Eternal, and something about it just feels a little too gimmicky for me. There are so many parts of the game that look like fast action to suddenly be slowed down to a molasses state by all the crawling up the walls and some of these cheesy cut scenes.
Plus, all the cool stuff the base has to offer is spread out to an annoying degree. If you want that one specific upgrade, you have to go down a hallway, up a staircase, across a room, through another hallway, down another staircase, around another corner, through another room, through another hallway, blah blah blah. Oh, and when you finally get there to get the +1 point to spend on your shit? You get to run all the way back to the top to start the next level.
Christ, just ... fuuuuck who thought this was a good idea?
