I used to really love harbor freight, but now it’s more a pain than a treat. I’ve gone through several boxes of these, and I won’t use them again. They’re just not worth it.
I’ve been using this game a lot lately, so I decided to try it out. It’s a pretty fun game, if not a bit frustrating. I don’t have any special game-playing skills, but it does have a lot of unique mechanics that don’t always seem to work. For instance, to drive a freight train you must first line up on the left and then press a button on a switch that turns on a track to the right.
That sounds easy enough, but it isn’t. It takes a few moments after the first move before you can line up the track correctly (and that takes time). Also, if you line up on the wrong track, you will fail to move, and are then stuck in a loop. Also, if you line up on the wrong track, you have to start over right away. You can also get stuck on a loop if you press the wrong button during the line up.
You can also get lost in the game if you press the wrong button. Some of the track lines have too many turns so you can get stuck and not be able to get back to the starting point. You also can be stuck in a loop if you fail to line up on the correct track and just get stuck on the wrong one and have to start over.
Harbor freight is the closest thing to a sandbox game to the Dishonored series. It is a real time-sink game where you can explore and do your own thing. You can do all the things you do in that game, but it’s not like you’re running an entire game. In fact, you’re pretty much stuck in a loop, unless you do something really, really unusual and get the chance to try something new.
