This game was absolutely horrible in every way imaginable. It was more like a movie than a game. You have no control over what or where you can go. You can only push the joystick in the direction of the fight. When I had to help a homeless woman give birth that was it for me. The whole time I was waiting for the action to start but it never happened. I really do t understand how this game got such a great rating. VERY DISSAPOINTED
The story of the game is amazing and it kept me captivated the entire time. It is a short game but well worth the rent.
One reviewer said they disliked the jumping around in time, but I found it to be a pro. It kept it more interesting to not be adult/child the entire time I played and the timeline always made it clear where you were relative to every other event.
The gameplay is the one downside to this game. No brightness controls, and upping the brightness on my TV only helped somewhat. Often situations were dark and when it asks what direction to hit, it was very hard to tell for me. The game is very linear too, you can only go one place, you can only hit the buttons it tells you to. The story makes up for it because I still thoroughly enjoyed the game. 8/10.
