I didn't know what the hell to do first time I played it, so I tried for ten minutes, got caught in the diner, then put it back on the shelf for months.
However, I replayed a while back, and honestly I quite enjoyed it, sure the story went crazy towards the end but are you forgetting
If you played the Europe reincarnation of the game, Fahrenheit, it was fully uncensored and the game includes a really weird and awkward bedroom scene - with quick time events, I kid you not... -
The story reminded me of Condemned 2 in its execution, interesting story of intrigue and fear and then
Then again, maybe I'm just agreeing with Yahtzee's review of Condemned 2... Convoluted story or not, I still really enjoyed playing the game and it was fun and pretty exciting. Innovative and intriguing game turned into dumb fun towards the end.
