I just finished the game and feel like... blah... Well no, it's not a bad game at all. But somehow it just leaves me sort of-- indifferent.
I could probably briefly summarize it in two sections- the good and the bad.

THE GOOD
There were moments when it made me jump off my chair! When monsters brake through walls right in front of you, it definitely is fun! Also, the audio effects are great- the choir singing and all the disturbing noises of someone somewhere ..well being "in trouble" let's say. And the music is good too- it all adds up to the creepiness
Another great thing is the way you don't really get STUCK- the game leads you where you need to go so you don't have to wonder around trying to figure out what the heck you should do. It keeps you "progressing" through the game as well as the storyline.

THE BAD
It could have been an amazing irreplaceable experience- i love the concept of leading a group of stereotypical teenagers in a high school with a big dirty secret.. but the storyline IS SO STRAIGHTFORWARD. Not to say it did not have ANY surprises at all but i just have to say - the plot is weak.

Overall, when i saw the screenshots and read the preview of the game i was sure i would love it!!! And i did enjoy it, but it could have been soo much more.

You can rent it and have fun with it- but it's not for those who want to get into some deep thinking and plot analysis..

When I first started playing this game, I knew that this should be named one of the best under-rated survival horror games ever! The action, adventure, and horror keeps you on the edge of your seat. Although some of the characters seem a little 'too much', such as Stan, who talks like a gangsta', and Shannon, who is really whiny, the game still seems great. I would recommend this great, but not perfect game, to anyone. I'm sure you would enjoy it!

This game is pretty good. I like the fact that you can,as a single player, switch back and forth between the characters, although I actually kept Shannon just for the advice she gives. It give a Resident Evil and Silent Hill vibe, just not on as much of a grand scale. It's a fun game to play, but don't expect to play too many hours on it. I feel that this game was really short, and I didn't even look at a walkthrough, and I'm not the best gamer out there. So for a short weekend of fun, this is a great game, but the storyline is only so-so. Be prepared.
