At first when this came out, I thought that it was only a game and that people shouldn't get so worked up but when I got around to playing it (a friend bought it after all the controversy stirred up by a copycat killing) I realised this game IS terrible for all the wrong reasons....
The worst thing about this game isn't the fact that it is actually quite sick (endless killing of people) but the fact that is the most repetitive, boring game I have ever played on the PS2.

No matter how many ways you can kill people, the result is always the same- they end up dead.
