    EDITORS CHOICE? pfft.<br /> An hour long game for $20 (ZAR R200).<br /> FFS!

    This game is way over priced for what you get. If I knew before hand what I was getting into I would certainly not have bought the game. This reviewer lead me astray and made me think this was som...

    I hope none of friends find out that I actually played this game. <br /> <br /> WARNING: Spoiler alerts.

    I can only say this game would only appeal to a single genre player. That player would have to be a adolescent teenager that is realizing that they are gay or has a sibling that is. I'm not being hate...

    Spoiler alert review--Game was good, but not a fan of the story, very short game too. Saw the preview, you played it.

    PLEASE DO NOT READ IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE GAME SPOILED!!!! So, after seeing the trailer for this game, and watching game play I decided to buy this game. I was thinking the trailer was misleadin...

    Ambiance it's all for this game. If you are going to play, do it in a dark lonely room with no one to bother you.

    A little overrated in my eyes, while playing this game I got the feeling that I was always waiting for "something" to happen. I'm not sure what that was, just "something". Seems all is "build up" f...

    Gone Home - the new highest rated videogame of the month. Also, how to discredit any journalistic reviews. (SPOILER)

    Rated on August 17, 2013 by LVT_PTA_PB

    I'm gonna go straight to the point. I know how to recognize a good game/story. Gone Home is far from being as good as critic says and here's why. -It uses cheap tricks to get you to be interested i...

    The underlying haunting nature of the Greenbriars home is unfortunately squandered in this over priced game.(Spoilers)

    Let's get the elephant in the room out of the way first, this is not a horror game. It's an interactive story in the purist sense, gameplay consists of opening cupboards and doors and reading notes w...

    Good environment interaction, poor and clichéd storytelling. (SPOILERS)

    Rated on August 18, 2013 by Guest1001

    I'd read as much as I could about Gone Home before it was released but almost everything about the game was being kept under wraps. All I could discern was that it was a story-heavy "immersive experie...

    A tricky/delicate narrative

    Rated on August 18, 2013 by antipunt1

    Gone Home is apparently quite the controversial game, as some points need to be emphasized. When I went to the user review section of this game, I was shocked by the low-user average, as I had rather ...

    Lasting impression but falls short in both gameplay time and potential

    Rated on August 19, 2013 by benstuartyoungs

    I yearn for games like this. Grown up, story based games. They are few and far between. So when I heard about Gone Home I immediately jumped on the bandwagon. My playthough lasted approx 2hrs. It w...

    Let me put it like this Gone Home isnt a game its an experience.<br /> (Not for action fans more or less)

    Rated on August 20, 2013 by Amgadashrafshra

    Its been a while since i played a game like this,a game that tells a deep story of characters you never meet but just read a note from them and feel that you have been with them the entire time and Go...
