The chapters being played out in a fashion that is not in order keeps the game fresh and entertaining.The acting is great as well.Some chapters are more memorable than others but overall the game is not rewarding at all and gameplay is very passive.This makes you wish you had a greater impact on the events of the title.If your looking for a challenge avoid this game.This is a rent not a buy.If you want something similar that is superior in gameplay checkout heavy rain.
This game's story is very good, and was not hard for me to get into right away. My experience was very immerse and enjoyable. The only thing that I did not like was the directional quick timing events, it is good that it was not all just button mashing, and they were not helping you too much to the point where it was simple, but it did get bothersome at times when you would fail, or just simply wonder how you made it through that particular instance with sheer guessing power lol. The game does not really punish you, you get plenty opportunities to recover if you screw up a quick time. For some this may be a bother, and it takes away from the sense of accomplishment, but for most it is an easy breather and less stress for them to rage over from accidentally moving the analog stick slightly off in the wrong direction. Other than those sometimes annoying instances, the ghostly companion mechanic is cool, and the things you can do and find while taking control of your ghostly counterpart are interesting, and it gives a whole other side to the immersion. I was on my seat as the main character at times, but when I was able to switch to your soul-mate (hehe) , I felt a bit more powerful, and less on edge. All in all, it's a great game and is worth getting, or at least renting. For the price though, it is indeed worth the buy.
