    Very complex game dealing with difficult subject matter that is very intelligently communicated throughout the game in unique and interesting ways. The game really does a great job with the atmosphere and puts you in the mindset of the main character with great attention to detail.

    It's not perfect but it is good, and it's quite unique, and there are certain sections that made me think deeply in ways that no game has ever really asked of me. I can only imagine the kind of impression it likely made on it's intended target audience. After all, it did leave an impression on me and I'm not really one for these emotional dramas directed at teenage girls, but it's all executed so well that I couldn't help but be impressed at times. And that Mogwai section really kicked it up a few notches for me too.

    I really loved it.

    Great story, great soundtrack, interesting characters and engaging themes.
    The long wait between episodes kinda sucked though, especially the 3 month wait between Ep4 and 5 after episode 4 finished on a super interesting cliffhanger.

    The ending could've been expanded though. Although I was happy with what I ended up with, many people got the shorter ending which appeared kinda rushed.

    It's highly likely the new game will feature a new cast, so its a bit of a clean slate for them.
    Interested in seeing how they keep the game fresh and interesting without abandoning the themes and unique aspects that made the first game so great.

    Yeah. Can't even remember it that well, so I guess it couldn't have been that great. I remember saving her and then they both drive off. I could've used a longer, more detailed conclusion to what was really a pretty long story

    To be honest, I was quite invested in it in the beginning and I did enjoy the story. I found that some of the conversation was a bit long and boring though and I did not enjoy repeating events over and over. If you had asked me before the last episode, I probably would have enjoyed it but that hide and seek bit at the end irritated me considerably and then the hollow pointless endings just ruined it for me. Especially when you consider all your decisions so carefully and meanwhile they have no real baring on the outcome.

    I liked the idea of the first one, even if you had the option of undoing something you did it might still not be the right decision. It took me through an emotional ride and I enjoyed the game but the last chapter started very good, but after the first sequence it went down hill really fast and hard amd felt like a chore to complete and while each chapters end felt like...wow/gasp... I chose the other option than nykfist did at the end but the game ending just felt bland wnd unsurprising nor did it make me think for more than a second if I shouldve taken the other option.
