    Beautiful game and really reaches to the heart by the end. At least it did for me.

    I have no idea. Didn't pay attention. But probably at most an hour? Longer if I took the time to check everything. I saved the other routs and stuff for another play through.

    Yeah, an hour sounds about right, although it feels like forever with how fucking slow the walking-pace is. And it really is beautiful.

    Really, an hour? I guess it's all about how you play, how long you take to look at the scenery and such. I got to the caves in about 45 minutes I think that's about half way so we shall see.

    Well, I took probably 2 hours since I tried to explore different paths and take my time admiring the scenery, but I think most people will get impatient with how slow it is and just try to get to the end.

    I don't think it would be a bad idea if they gave some sort of running option or perhaps a little jump. I felt kind of clastrophobic with the control if that even makes sense? I just had to have my character do something other than zoom and walk!

    I feel as though this has so much more potential. They did a great job, but I feel as though they could have had random stuff happening and added a few more details that would have kept the games style but add more to the Interactive part of Interactive Story.

    Then I also see lots of potential for like a mystery game, with hidden contents and objectives. I'd like for someone to mod this into something like that. The island was fantastic, but I feel like they stopped there in terms of the game.

    The main things I was missing were run/jump and interacting with objects/environment. Even if I could just pick up objects and examine them, that would have made me happy.

    Yeah exactly what I was talking about. They needed to remember that the medium they chose to deliever this art work was game and not a movie. So please take advantage of that lol.

    This review comes off kinda harsh, but it highlights all the problems.

    I like the bit where the u-boat surfaces and the launch party beaches on the island. You have no gun so you need to stay low and make sure you aren't noticed. Once they have set up camp and are sleeping you sneak into their camp and steal a sniper rifle and find the box of (right calibre) ammunition. Don't take the wrong box!

    THEN the action starts in the morning. Great game.

    Zomg a new game based off a mod. Quick, Valve pull a Blizzard and sue them for the name! :D

    Seriously tho, I read the description and it instantly perked my interest. Dunno if I'll jump on initial release but it is for sure in my wishlist.

    Hmm, not sure that it is worth the $10. I felt that it should have been a "free to play" type of game. I would imagine that it will drop in price pretty quick, so I think I will wait until it is at $4.99 or something of that sorts.

    Well, I don't dislike it; I just think it could be better.
