    :ugh2: Looks like another complete waste of fucking time - basically, the game is some cutscenes with a shitload of quick-time events.

    Seriously, they consider this to be a game? It's like having a bad VCR where you have to play with the tracking to keep the picture going.

    The graphics look nice but it's a movie with button presses, and the graphics don't look as good as those from a normal movie.

    And don't even get me started on the shitty dialogue and voice acting.

    I thought it looked awesome. The part where you are looking for clues didn't seem cutscene like at all - you were controlling the character. It's just a snippet as well... who knows what the final product will end up looking like.

    Usually in games, when a quick time event comes up, you MUST press the button or you will die. However, in this game, it seems to have more of a "Choose your own Adventure" effect, like even if you don't get it, you still continue on but on a different path. That's what I got from this, anyway. It's an interesting idea.

    But yeah, the voice acting wasn't great. Hopefully it is not final
