If you prefer your coffee "Black as midnight on a moonless night" definitely play this game
Presentation: Brilliant ideas here (a lead protagonist with a personality disorder is great fun); GREAT STORY (very intriguing); Even some of the QTEs are different than what I am used to
Graphics: PSone at best, but honestly, it adds to the charm and hilarity of it all
Sound: you will probably hate it but I for one love the same 3 songs that play over and over and over...not to mention how the music constantly drowns out the dialogue (this was done on purpose...I think)
Gameplay: downright terrible; terrible control scheme (somewhat like RE4 but feels like Alone in the Dark in its clunkyness); bad camera angles sometimes; right thumbstick/camera control is terrible; combat sequences are nearly unplayable due to bad controls; terrible map system (the city is rather large and the map doesn't zoom out enough to let you navigate easily)
Lasting appeal: really depends on your ability to put up with the bad controls, overall strangeness and repetitiveness
In all, if you have no idea who the "log lady" is, I suggest looking somewhere else; however, if you prefer your coffee "Black as midnight on a moonless night" and can deal with archaic controls then definitely give this game a shot.
