Playing the game is like watching half a movie

Summary: This is the first game I played that made me feel I was merely turning the pages of a pre-programmed novel. There is nothing you can do out of order, nothing to build up (skills or inventory), nothing you can skip (maybe a little bit), no side quests, no rewarding fights. What is worse, the story is too abstract, too complex. When the game ended, none of the loose ends were resolved. In short, playing this game is like watching half a movie.
Summary: It's not really a game. It is more of a story you ' participate' in. The story was interesting, and I grew to like the characters, but it all seemed to mean nothing in the end. The graphics are okay, The soundtrack is good, but there really is no game play. If you are looking for more of a movie or a story, then this is your game. If you are looking for an actual video game, then no.
Summary: I think it is pretty good but not great. like someone else said theres not a ton of gameplay and so much talking. I luckily found out you can skip if you press B a lot, good story but can get tiring.
Summary: This game is short, unsatisfying, and feels rushed. I rented the game from Blockbusters - it's a 1 week rental that I rented yesterday and just beat - the ending credits are scrolling as I write this review. First, let's start with my biggest complaint - the story. A story has thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. This game lacks synthesis. It has thesis up the wazoo.
Summary: Trés déçu de cette suite. Malgré un graphisme assez soigné, et un début d'histoire alléchant, le jeu ne tient pas la route. En effet je trouve déjà le jeu trés court en durée de jeu, de plus il n'y a pour ainsi dire aucune énigme à résoudre, et les seules qui pourrait valoir le titre d'"énigme" sont d'une simplicité ridicule à résoudre.
