The infamous sewer level. Not one of the best parts of the game.
There are other combat-heavy parts of the game, particularly in the end game (which is a bunch of combat sequences stringed together), but none of them are as long as the Hollywood Sewers (if you take it as a single instance and not three divided by those breaks I was talking about.)
This really is a slog. Even cutting through it and skipping most of the combat, we still spent 15 minutes at this. Playing through it straight, it’s about a half hour, if you know where you’re going. The first time I played through this took me two hours, wandering around, getting lost, and thoroughly exploring every branch (in return for no loot).
But there’s not a lot to talk about here, so let’s just wait around until anaphysik shows up and makes fun of my pronunciation again. As a bonus, he’ll almost certainly use IPA, which means I still won’t be able to pronounce anything correctly because I understand IPA less well than I understand Greek (and I’ve only studied Latin.)
Next episode will be the Nosferatu warrens, which will be far more interesting.
