A great survival horror game with an engrossing storyline!
I think the gameplay in this game is pretty good. The combat system is a little sloppy, but do-able. The great aspect of this game is the "Sightjacking". With this ability, you can see through your enemies' eyes with your character! It can be very helpful when trying to figure out the enemie's pattern of movement.
The sound is extremely scary! From the constant blaring of the magical Siren to the creepy ambience of the night in Hanuda, this game has it all when it comes to great sound. The only downfall is that the voice actors for this game sound a little rediculous. Otherwise, it's a great part of the game.
Very detailed. From the sketches of the children's artwork in the school to the houses in the village, this game has amazing graphics for it's time. You can examine nearly everything interesting in the environment, and it will give you a description.
Easily the best part of the game. In the first part, it seems very confusing, but it grows on you as you get into it, and eventually you want to know more and more!
I felt this game was very good. It's pretty difficult, so I'd say if you are not into this genre of games, rent it. Otherwise, it would make an excellent addition to your collection!
