Out of all honesty, for those who are thinking about getting this, ask yourself if you're willing to spend time on a game that will boggle your mind with puzzles, if you find that fun, then you need to buy this game. If you don't like puzzles and go for the plot, you can still search the walkthroughs on a website, but although you will find it less entertaining that it normally would go out as a gameplay experience. If you hate puzzles thoughout then obviously its a no-no.
Fay: The girl you play in the game, has the best plot story, although i'm almost done with it (1 chapter left) i find her character development a great balance between what the plot indicates and situational events occuring around her.
Bent: I find it difficult to understand his reasons of collaborating within the plot, first half he goes into denial, the second half he goes through reasoning and his character development doesnt change through that and when you arrive at the Labratories at the Sea you might think it is boring, and yes because our limited options prevents us from doing anything at all by that stage.
Gameplay: Crazy as it may seem I loved the gameplay, its just a few minor tweaks that may help it out, a bit of specification would be nice, and the atmosphere really does get to you when you're feeling the situation current at hand.
