Really Bad

not what I saw advertised

I was advertised a survival horror game, but what I got was a puzzle game. Sadly, even though it was new and original, it became repetitive and boring. If you're into this sort of thing, yeah, get it, but for me, it was a miss.

FAR Better Than Average Reviews Indicates

First, let me preface this review with the fact that I rarely, if ever, write reviews for games I've rented. This is one of the THE most innovative, inventive, and incredibly unique blending of decision-based simulation and puzzle genres.

The Good:
-Puzzles are HARD, incredibly difficult, even on normal, you will have plenty of moments of controller-throwing frustration, but in the best of ways. Would you rather have an easy, pedestrian puzzle game or something that provides an actual challenge. On hard, you'd have to be a madman with the patience of a saint.
-Great system of forging relationships, even has text messaging system where you have multiple options and control what type tone each text will have.

The Bad:
-Somewhat brief and a lot of cut-scenes. Also, I wish that there were more locations to interact with people other than the bar. It's as though there are only 2-3 locations in this entire city, and only one of those can you actually navigate and interact in.
-Although multiplayer exists, its restricted to offline, something that is perplexing in this day and age of online gaming.

Bottom Line:
The replay value is fairly high with a grand total of EIGHT possible endings based on your choices. The puzzles also contribute to the replay value of this game. Once I get my next gamefly dollars, I'm buying this game for sure. Do yourself a massive favor and at the very least rent this game, you will not be disappointed :D

This game has you hooked by the story alone. the puzzle and levels in between are good as well, but the story drives this game. Its definitely a mature game and make sure little ones aren't around when you play. This actually gave me nightmares a few times because i played it before i went to sleep. Not a good idea. Love it non-the-less, had to buy it for myself to play the other modes.
