Don't buy for Xbox 360

Summary: I bought this for my Xbox 360, after checking to see if it would work. Online research led me to believe it was compatible, but to expect loss of music and occasional crashes which could be overcome by reloading from a saved game position. Since I usually turn the music off when playing games I was willing to put up with the occasional problem for the promise of exceptional gameplay.
Summary: I always make sure i read reviews of a game before i buy it. Well most the reviews i read said this game was great. Well it's really not. When i read the back of the case it made it sound like a revoloution in the whole gaming experience. Had they really made a game where the hero's sanity slips depending on what you do and where you go? NO! I read a review that compared this game to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Well i find that personally offensive.
Summary: In short, this is a game which starts out with a promising Cthulhu investigation feel, before turning into a standard first person shoot-em up. Having played the roleplaying game of HP Lovecraft's world, I was hoping for a game that was more about your investigative skills and your ability to keep the character sane.
Summary: Höre ich etwas von einem düsteren Horrorabenteuer, bei dem es in erster Linie um den subtilen und nicht so sehr um eine sichtbar brutale Horrororgie geht, so werde ich neugierig. Reisen wir dann auch noch etwas zurück in der Vergangenheit und finden eine packende Geschichte vor, die uns immer wieder erschaudern lässt, so muss ich jenen Titel unbedingt antesten.
