Unlockable weapons don't have to be incredibly powerful. They can just be slightly better or cooler looking than the other ones. (eg. A "Sting" imitation that would glow when enemies were near.) Just random cool stuff like that.Zantalos wrote:I'm sorry, but I thought the unlockables in RE4 were especially amateurish. Like the typewriter gun, it did 999 damage and was fully automatic, I found no entertainment in it. Same with the infinite rocket launcher. They were so overpowered I didn't even know how to have fun with them. The coolest thing to do with the machine gun is spray fully automatic at a group of zombies while they are closing in on you, but the typewriter would one hit kill every shot so there was no fun in it. I would have kept beating the game over and over again but once I got the fedora hat and typewriter there was like no point to continue. I tried just not using the typewriter but then I felt cheated somehow and the rest of the game was sapped of its game play after that huge disappointment of an unlock.
The bonus missions weren't that great either. They weren't very polished in comparison to the main game so I didn't really bother playing them a whole lot, but what I did play was more frustrating than fun.
A chainsaw would be sweet, though. Maybe its downside would be that it slowed you down a lot.
