This game is very addicting and unique--- there's no other game that feels like it. It's a perfect example of one of those rare japanese import gems on PS2 that is largely underrated and under-appreciated due to little or no marketing. Note that it's probably twice as big and much more detailed than the first game (Disaster Report), so if you liked the first, you'll definitely love this one. I think this game should at least have a score of 8 out of ten----what were you thinking GS for giving this game a bloody 6.7? That's like saying that this game is worse than say, Van Helsing on PS2. If you played through every storyline you would notice that the game is very persistent on the details, like how you treat Stephanie(heroine of the game) affects how she reacts towards you. This part of the game with the idea of protecting your female companion from a hostile environment reminds me of the game ICO. choose the dialogues affect the branching storyline. I rated this game a 10 because I want to raise the average score.
