pretty good

this game was actually pretty good. There is no gunplay, no fighting, really not much of anything besides walking around and solving puzzles. I enjoy games like this to get away from the norm. I believe the people that gave it a bad review are just typical meatheads who are too stupid for this game. Thats why they need to stick to the basic run n gun games with all the action. Now i enjoy those games too but this is a game that is worth playing if u want to get your brain working again. the graphics are not great even though i dont think they need to be for the genre of game this is. It is not worth buying but definatley worth a rent. If you are an achievemnt hunter then you will want to play this game. It took me 4 hours to get a 1000 score. If u are kind of stupid it might take you a little longer but nontheless its easy.

What can I say, SHVJTR has a great storyline and unfolds just like a novel. If you don't like to think hard on puzzles this game is not for you. I spent hours sometimes figuring a puzzle out, but I love to solve issues in games, thus this game was my cup of tea.

This is a low-budget game, it's obvious. However, this game deserves a chance. If you can get past the graphics and bad voice-acting, you'll find that the game actually has a pretty good gameplay engine. It's not monotinous. There are different puzzles each time you find clues, a steady storyline and a unique plot.

Most people judge a game by its graphics, and less on it's gameplay. IMO, this game is unique in it's own right and deserves a second look.
