All reading, no play
27 December 2012
Summary: I really don't see the point with all the outrageous language...and I've "played" this game for 2 hours now and the only interaction you really get to have is clicking the screen frequently to scroll down more reading..
Summary: This game is soooo painfully slow, I just - can't - play it any more! Seriously, every time I click on an item to pick it up, someone has to tell me the story of their life, or worst, that chick keeps flirting with me! Where is the option to tell the girl, "Listen, you are cute, but we are about to die, so how about you stop teasing me with your 7th grader school ground flirtations until after the bad man stops trying to kill us!?
Summary: This game failed to immerse me in story or game play. I have to admit the story interested me to an extent but tediousness of slow text and mostly uninteresting/uninspired puzzles were the straw that broke the camel's back for me.
Annoying slow text display ruins something that could be great

Summary: This game punishes experimentation by wasting a lot of time slowly displaying the text that tells you that the action you were trying doesn't work. I finally got so sick of it on one puzzle that I quit and sold the game. I wasn't too far in... It was just way too annoying.
Good when you finally get to the puzzles - too much text

Summary: Actually I said everything in the tag line. You spend endless minutes tapping the screen to get past the dialog. And you can't speed that up or skip it. I found a way to get out of it in under 9 hours - pop it out of your Nintendo and play another game.
Decent Story Marred by Poor Writing and Boring Gameplay

Summary: This game is rated "mature," but doesn't seem to actually be for adults. The main problems? Poor writing, incessant repetition, and incredibly easy puzzles. The rave review for this title are primarily based on praise for the interesting and creative story (which makes sense, since this game is quite literally 90% story and 10% interactive puzzles). I agree that the story, as a whole, is good.
