    Unique, Unexpected Letdown

    I had high hopes for this game after reading the glowing review on Gamespot, and seeing similar high reviews on other gaming sites. And even during the process of writing this comment about Gone Home, I can't say that I ... Read Full Review

    The $20 DOOM mod!!!

    For those living under a rock for the last few weeks, Gone Home is a first-person 'Visual Novel'-style adventure game, where a college woman returns home on holiday...to find the entire home empty. Certainly her family ... Read Full Review

    Bad. Its probably one of the worst things I played. And I mean, maybe if you know from the begining what the whole things is about, it wouldnt suck so much. The thing is that at first, the games make you so courius about... Read Full Review

    A misleading game that is all style and no substance

    Gone Home is one of those narrative-driven 'not-a-game' projects that always produces divisive opinions. I didn't know much about the game other than being aware of the high praise from critics with several publications ... Read Full Review

    Admittedly I don't understand this game. What I heard raved about was this awesome indie game that evidently was so unique it would even be considered for a game of the year award.What I played was an hour long trek thro... Read Full Review
