I received this game in error, having never placed it in my queue. I tried it out anyway, and after a couple of hours, put it back in the sleeve and back in the mail.
It's a Wii version of those Japanese "locked room" mysteries you played in Flash on Ebaumsworld in 2005. Click this, open that drawer, pick up that inexplicably named thing and move that box to get out of the house which you have no idea why you're in in the first place. The entire game has a stilted, poorly-translated-from-Japanese feel, which may amuse the mangaboys and people who didn't let grandma throw out their animes, but for the rest of us, it's just annoying.
The control interface is awkward, far too much precision is required to point at things. Your arm gets sore from trying to hold the wiimote JUST so.
There are a few scary moments, which is why I don't give it a 1, but these are not nearly enough to redeem it in my opinion.
If you're a mangaboy, japan-o-phile, whatever, you'll probably love this nonsense. Whip out some pocky and settle in your Hello Kitty beanbag for funtime game session ohhh! Otherwise, look elsewhere.
I LOVE IT!!! this game is scary, at first I was like what do I do but its real easy to play, love everything about it I give this game a 10 out of 10, I recommend this game to anyone....since its a horror game I don't recommend young kids to play
