    Very difficult and strange game, but a heck of a story.

    Finally, a game with a plot. No mere shoot-em-up where you have to rescue the world from yet another virus that makes everybody into aliens. This game plays like a Stephen King novel. It borrows from that source and from... Read Full Review
