It's a beautiful looking game with a great story attached to it. A lot of people are saying it's a lot like Heavy Rain, which it is but something a little more recent, for people who haven't played Heavy Rain, it's like The Walking Dead game. You move around and press the button you are prompted to press and your ability to react or not react dictates how the story goes. You won't be starting anything over if you fail at something you will be going from what happens then. It's beautifully written and I enjoyed playing every minute of it. It has a high replay value since you can go back and do something different and get a different outcome than what you did the first time. The end makes it look like there is a chance for a sequel and if so I can't wait.

When i first started playing this game i was so confused since i havent played heavy rain and there wasn't much prompts on what to do. Some events they expect you to know where to flick the right stick when it doesnt tell you but im assuming it's because of the difficulty i chose. I'm glad it didnt treat me like a baby the whole ride through. The acting both voice and mo-cap was amazing, with Willem Dafoe and Ellen Page it turned out to be amazing. The scenes were well done and the environments were astounding. It basically feels like you're playing a movie, the screen isnt cluttered with a health bar or map and the detail is so fine you can see fibers in the couch. The story was well done and pretty briliiant, takes place on a timeline but the events do no happen in order but other elements in the story do. There's plenty of choices to make. My only complaint is there's no sound option, voices are so low and the sound effects are higher. And theres a bug here and there but overall it didnt ruin the experience for me. It's also two player so if you have someone with you that wants to play they can use the app on android/ios to help out.
