    Got a 6 in edge. Reads like a 8. Main negs were tricky platforming ruins tension later in game and bad voice acting spoils a solid story. Generally v positive so was surprised it was a 6. Still day one from the text, wouldn't normally get a 6.
    The VO really is a bit shit. Confused as to why the dev thought that would be a good idea for a game with so much atmosphere in the art and concept.

    @Derblington I guess being Spanish they didn't appreciate the terrible English version. If we watched a Spanish film we wouldn't tell if voice acting was good or not.

    Yeah, the voice over is terrible. Cant believe they stuck with it. I was hoping feedback would make them change their mind but guess not. Still, not the end of the world. Will give it a go.

    The EG review is up if anyone is interested. 7/10, the main complaint being it's very short. I shall be buying it.

    I was loving this up to now, but the reviews are just... hmm... I don't know any more.

    These guys liked it, especially the looks.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    The short length is a bit off-putting, as I was hoping for more of a Shadow Complex size, but I still think it looks a bit special.

    Same here. I will try to wait for a sale, but may just buy it anyway. Squandering money on games I never get time to play until much later is almost becoming a hobby of mine.

    :(

    I kid myself that when the next gen arrives my son can have the 360 with the age appropriate ones so they will get played eventually...

    After watching footage of the game, I'm convinced this looks like it'll be great fun. Don't care too much about the length as I've had 2000 points sitting in my account for ages and nothing to buy. Bring on tomorrow!
  • Deleted user 31 July 2012 21:01:13
    most other reviews say more 4-5 hours, the 2 hours is the game clock which doesnt count deaths etc etc. so i guess 2 hours straight through not counting re trying areas etc

    Only a 4/10 from Gamecentral in the Metro. Definitely leaving this well alone as they're normally spot on for me review wise.
    Sounds like the game takes a wrong turn about a third of the way in and keeps going wronger until the end.

    Fuck the metro.

    Game Central are usually pretty accurate with reviews though. They can be a bit harsh sometimes and that does seem quite low.

    Looks like this is a try the demo and see what you think one.

    1200 MSP is not my idea of "sound pricing" for a game that's completed in 2 hours... It looks lovingly created (as do a lot fo the recent zombie apocolypse games), just a tad overpriced.

    If God said “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you,” to Mary - does that mean he loves bukkake?

    Another review with a decent score. These guys tend to be right on the money.

    The reviews are all over the place for this aren't they? Looks like its something people need to try for themselves.

    I loved Limbo but this isn't getting as much praise for the amount of content. Has the art style down but so many quirks are putting me off. Might take the plunge at 800 but not 1200.

    Like some others have said, if it was 800 points I'd be playing it tonight but 1200 has just knocked me onto the other side of the fence.

    Looks stylish but the lack of a consensus on overall quality is putting me off...

    About 30 mins in, love it so far. Such great atmosphere. I even read the 60 page diary before starting, well worth reading.

    Just nearly wet myself, great stuff.

    that guy seriously needs to invest in a direct capture device.

    I question EGs review. It said takes two hours. I've just finished a two hour session and I'm at the start of act 2 of 3. So we can asunder I have 2 more hours at least? Only died 3 times so I'm not repeating bits. Dodgy, other reviews said 4-5 hour game.
