Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great if you love the supernatural. The gameplay is great and the story is awesome. I'm surprised that some people give this a 6 ( not that that's a terrible score).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the hardest murder to solve is your own as my title says you literally have to solve your own murder. now you play as a character named roman o connor SPOIRS AHEAD. in the begging of the game you get thrown out the window by a guy call the bellmont killer I think his name is. through the course of the game u have to interagate ghost whats not to love. ohh and the bad guys are demons. anyways the game 15 bucks just buy it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good From what the title said and the cover shows, I knew this game was going to be good. Right from the start, I'd have to admit I was pretty creeped out. First off, YOU'RE DEAD... So that means you get to see other ghosts. In this case, some of them are kind-of scary. The story is amazing and well thought out, the graphics are nice, and game play is good. I thoroughly enjoyed earning the achievements as well. Plus, you can find colectables which will unlock stories which will pretty much either scare or creep people out. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a creepy game with a great storyline. ( HUGE plot twist at the end )

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It could be better Ok, so when I got this game I quickly realized that it would be incredibly easy while being fun at the same time. However, there are many trouble points that drag it down. The positives include the graphics, which are actually amazing especially for next-gen consoles. The 360, however suffers HUGE lag at all points of the game. The story is also positive, while it is a cliché, I personally didn't care because it was fun and refreshing from the basic FPS. Also, the 'powers' given to Ronan in the game are fun to use.And, the sound quality in this game is AMAZING, even though its not a horror game the music in the background makes you feel like it is one. There are a lot of negatives in this game however. The replay value of this game is next to none. The only reason anyone would have to replay this game is to go back and get collectables for achievements. Also, the story seems a little too predictable although enjoyable, as well as short. The story is fast paced, and while that is usually a good thing, when the story is short it is obviously not. Although no awards will be given to this game and people will forget about it within next year it is worth the 18 bucks to pick it up and give it a try. Thanks for reading my review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is Really Good This is a great detective game, with thrills and scares. I don't why people hate this game. There are a few glitches, but the story is very good and the voice acting is good. If you like detective games play this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PS3 Game is a Lot Better I tried out the PS3 before buying the game. I originally bought the Xbox 360 game because there was not a PS3 one available. I returned the game the same day. It was horrible. I would definitely recommend the PS3 game.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Square Enix's "epic fail" If you're a hardcore mystery/paranormal fan then you might have a little fun with it... just make sure you can get it CHEAP!! The bottom line here is that this game is only fun for about an hour. After that I started asking myself why I was still wasting my time with it. It's a neat idea to have a dead protagonist try to solve his own murder by talking to ghosts, possessing people, and collecting clues... but it is poorly executed in this case. This game left me feeling rather disappointed. Especially since Square Enix usually does much better work than this. If you want a murder mystery game, either go get "L.A. Noir" or else find one of those mystery game packs for the PC that only costs five bucks and has three or four games in the box. The graphics are not quite awful, but they are not good, either. Faces of NPC's are just plain UGLY. The background is totally static, with brick/wood walls defining the play area. They effectively trap you within a small neighborhood in Salem, MA and that's all you ever see: houses and fences, with the occasional gas station or cemetery to use as a landmark. And it is ALWAYS dark so most of the "clues" you have to collect are difficult to see because they are tiny and they blend in with the environment. Also, many of them are not completely visible at first so you have to use a special "reveal" ability or something similar to make the clue more visible. The sound is ok but the music (when there is any) is not very appealing. Nor is it suspenseful or mysterious to fit the mood of the game. In a few instances, the game asks you to select the clue you need based on some sound you are supposed to hear (i.e. church bells mean you need to choose the picture that has the church in the background) but it is very difficult to tell what sound you are supposed to pay attention to, and the visual cue that is supposed to connect to the sound is far from obvious. Also, on the very rare occasion that you can listen to an NPC's conversation, you always have three or four of them all trying to talk over each other so you can hardly understand the dialogue. It is never anything that is important to the story, but I think if Square wanted to take the time to record the dialogue and program it into the game, then it would have been nice to set it up in a way that you can actually make out what the characters are trying to say. The story is somewhat original and the plot wants to be interesting. But the gameplay is so slow and clunky that it ruins anything good this game might have had going for it. The game gets choppy whenever it tries to load a new area, which is every fifteen seconds or so. You need to have nearly perfect aim with the left and right thumb-sticks to be able to interact with clues and other objects, so it is very easy to THINK you looked at a suspicious thing and it turned out to be nothing when really it is supposed to be a clue that you can read or manipulate, and the game just didn't recognize that you were trying to aim at it. When it comes to actually solving cases, you are typically locked in a room and you just have to click on every tiny object and posses every person in the room to find all the clues. Then you are supposed to solve it by putting the right combination of clues into the proper order to answer some questions. The process is slow and monotonous, really. There are some side-quests that have NOTHING to do with the main story, but they operate in the same way. You either have to find and click on a certain number of suspicious-looking objects (indicated with a tiny gold sparkle) or you have to help another ghost remember how they died so they can "move on." There are some collectible clues you can find that also have nothing to do with the story and are totally optional, but they provide some background info about your character or your killer. It gets a little boring trying to find these things (some of which are hidden with NO INDICATION that you can expose them until you are literally standing right on it) since there is no reward for doing so. The game is very linear I think this is not a problem as long as you understand that it's a MURDER MYSTERY and all you are expected to do is follow the trail of clues. You will face some enemies, but they are few and far between. They are also incredibly easy to kill. The demons are supposed to be able to devour a ghost's soul, but then all you have to do is sneak up behind them and rip them to pieces. Kind of lame as enemies go. But then, you are supposed to be focusing on the story and the clues, not the combat. So this also is not necessarily a bad thing... just something you should be aware of before you buy the game. My advice: only get this game if it's under $10, and even at that you can find better games on which to spend your hard-earned money. I hate to sound like a "negative nancy" because I usually appreciate even the less popular games, but this one really just isn't very well made. I think the Square Enix team probably wishes they could go back in time and stop this one from being released... maybe polish it up a little in terms of graphics, area-loading times, and music at least. Hope that helps you make up your mind about this game. Happy gaming.
