the graphics are ok but there is no save until you get to a certain point.the story is good but the game play sucks, just don't mess with this game it's a waste of time because you so many limitations you can not even count.

Horrible

Put it down immediately

The GF review was pretty low, but I figured I'd give it a try anyway -- big mistake. I can tolerate bad games because I get so wrapped up in the story, and I just want to know the ending. I played this for 10 minutes and put it away. The game play was awful, the explanation of what you're suppose to do/your controls might as well have been nonexistent, and although the graphics weren't too bad, the coloring of everything made it hard to see, even if you adjust your visual settings. I have NEVER picked up a game and left it unfinished. Over all, the best way I can describe it is Bioshock meets Blood Rayne... but done completely wrong.

Imperfect but still underrated

My main criticism of this game is that it only allows autosaves at checkpoints. For a stealth game this can get infuriating, because if you make it almost all the way to the next checkpoint then die, that means you have to replay everything from the previous checkpoint, which can be quite a lot of time to have to retread, especially on your first play through. Still, this isn't hard to get the hang of, has some good level design and atmosphere, even if the enemy AI is very dumb and predictable. The difficulty of the last two levels almost makes up for the absurdity of the fact you have to fight through them wearing a nightie.
