  • Never having witnessed the apparent previous disasters having been reported I can’t comment in any way how this edition compares. What I can tell you is that I walked into the game with no expectations and found it consistently surprising and even enjoyable at times, even if it could just as often be frustrating as I tried to understand what I was supposed to be doing. The gameplay is an unusual mix of visual novel storytelling and mild adventure action, and unfortunately the game engine often doesn’t feel like it’s up to the task, getting jittery or showing performance issues despite the overall look feeling like it was from a generation or more ago. That said, the moments where you meet other people in the middle of this disaster and talk to them briefly can be compelling and even sweet at times, bringing a humanity to the experience I didn’t expect. Of course, being a person who likes to try to see what a game will allow me to get away with, the ability to choose to wear a bikini while trying to escape a major catastrophe in the middle of the city simply made me laugh. It will hardly be a game for everyone but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit it charmed me despite its issues.
