Good

Very polarizing

I love the story of this game. Its like nothing I've ever seen, and I applaud the creators for taking the risks that would come with making something so out there. That being said, I have three major qualms in an otherwise amazing game. First, the controls are horrible. You may spend half a minute just trying to rotate around a single block until you get dropped and killed, and in this day and age, there is no valid reason for controls this bad. Secondly, the game is brutally hard, even on the easy setting. While on easy, you'll never worry about failing permanently, because you get so many continues you'll basically get stuck in limbo of having a hundred lives and not being able to progress because you don't have time to truling look at all of your surroundings. The stupid camera that only turns 135 degrees in each direction doesn't help either. Finally, the "morality system" seems really binary and often nonsensical. Other than that, it has had a great effect on me and I'd recommend everyone I know to try it at least once.

Fun and Frustrating

All and all this game is fun. That being said, I couldn't finish it. The story is very compelling, and the main character is very easy to align with, but the actual puzzle parts are highly repetitive and just get blistering hard. The dating simulation of the game is its redeeming factor, as its interesting to see how you can react to people, whether its in person or through text messages. And the random bar trivia is a nice touch. However, on the whole, if your not looking for a game that's basically a frustrating "Tetris" with anime cutscenes, you may want to sit this one out.
