This "game" is definitely something that is not for everyone. That being said, I loved this very gripping story. Yes, it was kind of all over the place, but it didn't bother me at all. At times, I felt that is what helped the story feel so rich. It helps you understand her pain that much more. And having great actors apart of it sure helped as well.
This game, is more of an interactive movie than it is a traditional video game. The entire game is pretty much QTE's and hardly any combat systems at all. So, if you like hack and slash games and don't care much for the story, then pass this. If you have played games like Heavy Rain and Gone Home, then this game is for you.
I will admit, it was kind of slow at first. I remember texting my best friend "man, I'm still mashing these QTE's, I hate this game, how did it score so high". But, once the story started coming together, I was hooked. There were parts I didn't understand why they were as short or included at all. But, so much of this story had to be told for it to make complete sense.
The outcome was fantastic. I implore everyone interested to play this game completely through. But, I also suggest not to play it more than once as it could take away from the emotion of your play through. Is this a game to purchase? Probably not. Unless, you can get it for a really good price and/or just want to collect it.
I didn't like this game. It has a really good story but if I wanted a movie in would have gotten one. The closest thing to game play that u get is movement and action commands. I would refer this game to friends.
