This is one of those games that’s a struggle to review because it shines brightly in some areas but then struggles mightily in others. Add to that the fact that it’s a pretty budget-friendly title and you have a plus, but then that it’s ultimately not a very long one and that positive is countered. Being a bit bewildered and unsure what is going on or what I was doing was a common feeling, and while the overall creepy vibes of the environment and going on seem to compliment that feeling well I’m not so sure it applied well when thinking of the design of the gameplay. Given the confusion, trial and error and methodically trying things rather than having them be intuitive popped in a few times, as did wondering where I was supposed to be going or why I kept seeing something I wanted to go towards but didn’t. The thing is, once you’d hook back up with the oddball assortment of characters and advancing the story you’ll generally be willing to forgive and forget once more… at least until you hit the next obstacle. A very stylish and cool time if you’re willing to dig in and roll with the punches, but if you’re impatient there are weird and deep stories elsewhere that aren’t as aggravating to move through.
