Horrible

Worst controls ever, ruins the game

The story is neat, but unfortunately you'll probably drop kick the game across the room and curse its creators long before you have a chance to appreciate any of the story to the game. The controls are so backwards compared to any other game that you're constantly yelling curses at your screen. It's truly mind numbingly awful, and I say this as a person that LOVES complicated games and controls. These controls are not simply complicated, they were put together by a brain damaged monkey. Episode 2, Sequence 5 is a race in a car that depends more on luck than any amount of skill, and this sequence alone will make you hate the game entirely after you've tried for the hundredth time and still not managed to make it two full city blocks into the race. Seriously, just go put a different game in your queue, you do NOT want to waste your time or your enjoyment on this game. If you want to enjoy the story line, just go to a walkthrough and read it or something, you'll get about as much enjoyment from that as you would from playing this terribly designed game.

blinking more important than moving?

I barely made it down the stairs. The game forces you into 1st and 3rd person view seemingly at random. In third person, you CANNOT control the camera, movement is near impossible. I've fallen a thousand times due to many of these reasons. The game's tutorial level is hard to understand, and uses terrible pictures instead of just telling you what buttons do what. but pay attention, because they will never tell you again. The creators need to take a step back, and stop trying to configure "almost every human movement," and worry about the basics before things such as blinking. The graphics are pretty dang good, and the story line and concept seemed so appealing. But please dont waste a week ordering, hating, and returning this game.
