Excerpt: Sex, drugs and children's choir? Obscure ... fitting title for a game based on a powerful pollen that turns teenagers into mutants and spreads through sexual contact. This PS2 release is a survival-horror adventure that takes bits and pieces from Resident Evil and Silent Hill , and mixes them up with a similarly bizarre plot and cheesy dialog. The story is based on a flower that is discovered (or manufactured) to have a black pollen which has a hallucinatory effect.
Pros: Decent creep factor, Demise looms just around the corner, Solid control, Engaging, Sketchy A.I., Bad save system, Cheesy love story in an already bizarre plot
