The voice acting is shabby, the graphics are basic, and to say the combat is simple would be an overstatement. With all that said, this is one of my favorite games. I bought this game after seeing multiple mentions of it in Game Informer, and I was looking for a non-expensive first horror survival/psychological thriller game, growing bored of my extensive collection of RPGs. Once the story line of this budget-title game really kicked in, I was immediately hooked. Murderer in a small rural town sounds cliche, but when you investigate crime-scenes and all of the sudden, unexplained red tentacles cover the walls and you are surrounded by eerie pale, black eyed zombie-like beings, seemingly attempting communication saying things in ghostly voices like "Where are you" and "Don't want to die" while contorting themselves and shoving their arms down your throat is, well, hopefully enough to spark your interest. I haven't yet completed the game, I'm a bit over half way done, but I will tell you, the plot, the hilarious characters (you will love Agent York, the playable character), plot twists, and the quirky music are what makes this game. There is no jump out of your chair frights, but if you are an open-minded, dedicated gamer, not picky about games as long as they entertain, then I promise this game will be full of sweaty palmed moments, eyes wide open, exclaiming expletives aloud, and sighs of extreme relief.
