Escort Missions

Post by Santa Arle on Tue May 13, 2014 11:33 pm

How do you feel about escort missions in gaming?


Escort missions have to be the most frustrating mechanic in gaming. I (insert Kefka line) hate them due to terrible setup, horrendous difficulty balance, unbearable pacing, stupid AI, and the fact that most characters you have to escort I never want to see again

I hate having to do them in the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Games because if the Pokemon you escort falls during battle: you have to START ALL OVER AGAIN. It's just so annoying. u.u;

They suck, apart from Resident Evil 4, which was mainly an escort mission for the whole game, and was awesome.

I really don't like them too much either, they just get annoying due to enemy AI, or even AI of the character you're escorting. And in most games they're used in, they take way too long.

Generally I can't stand them, because they'll tend to have low health/defense, no way of attacking and you'll have to take them a large distance while every enemy seems to take the priority of attacking the person you're protecting.
