Unlike many "cinematic" games that are obsessed with copying film, I think Thirty Flights pulls off a movie-like pace and editing style better than any other game I've seen. And I think that's what this game was: an experiment in using the schizophrenic yet calculated timeline and editing of a Tarantino film (for example) and making it work within a video game boundary. It sounds pretentious, but at the end of the day, it's an interesting look at how we can tell stories in video games and that's most definitely a positive (and sorely needed) effort in our medium.

It's great, sharp and short.
But the price is really stingy and i had a bunch of technical issues.
So i can't recommend to everybody. Play Gravity Bone (it's free) and draw conclusions from that.

AUDIO: Neat                                                                 AESTHETIC: Artsy
MEMORABILITY: Reasonable                                 WORTH: Serious Discount

PROS: The world looks nice, it's curiosity-piquing. I found the characters to be somewhat memorable, if only in role rather than name. The story is interesting once it's broken down for you or played through multiple times. It's the Momento style of story-telling, not just a random series of events that some are making it out to be. There is a fleshed out tale here that is admittedly poignant, and in a very interesting setting.

CONS: My overall time played was accrued through more than one playthrough. It is VERY short. For having such an interesting story, it's poorly told. The artsy factor actually detracts from the experience in this aspect. It would have been much better if the story to have been expanded upon, but I feel that's not what they were going for, for the sake of brevity. Unfortunately, a lack of any consequence makes it little more than a walking simulator that blows right by over the course of ten minutes or so.

OVERALL: This game is not worth five USD, simple as that. Is it a travesty upon gaming? A sin that cannot be redeemed? Is it the worst thing that has ever stolen the money of players everywhere? No. It's just an overpriced art game, so calm down and stop giving it so much hate for the sake of cheap comedy. This loss of five dollars is not worth stabbing your grandmother and threatening the developer over but exercise caution in buying it.

Looked promising and interesting when I saw the screenshots. Finally got it for half-price in the sales (IDK £4 seemed a bit steep) so I was really excited when I got to play it. I started it up and was like "Ooh this is interesting..." and then again two minutes later "Um I don't really get it but it's going somewhere right..."

And then five minutes later it was over. FIVE MINUTES OF GAMEPLAY (Not inc. the 15 minute game you can get for free from the intertwebz). At half-price it still wasn't worth it. Nowhere near!

Potentially an interesting concept/ story, rushed into a tiny, meaningless prototype thingy.

At the very least this game should be free.

Tl;dr: I want my £1.99 back.
