Now let me get this of my chest first,with the graphical style this game has i should not have been creeped out as much as i have been,but beleive me when i say this game freaked me out on more than one occasion.
And thats the real appeal of this game it creeps you out when you least expect it and it tells one hell of a good story,and my one and only gripe with it is that i have finished it now and i have to wait for the next season to be released.
Down to brass tacs ,the graphics really are one of this games defining moments and even though it isnt and doesnt look that scary it "DARN WELL IS" (so live with it),the sound (no dialogue as all the characters words are up on screen for you to read) in this game really adds to the "CREEP YOU OUT" factor and is (in my opinion) the best thing abvout the game.
The story is rich with intrigue and mystery and to say to much about it would spoil your enjoyment of what is a well put together and well written experience,lets just say your character receives a letter to go see his old friend and of he goes and then you embark on a dark and dangerous journey which will all become clear as you play and delve further into its mystery.
Now as i played i couldent help but wonder if the developers have an appriciation for things "LOVECRAFTIAN" (is that a word-WELL IT IS NOW) as i have read all of H.P.LOVECRAFT'S works and felt that this wouldent have been out of place in an omnibus of his stories and dark tales,and that is a great thing as you never really know whats going on until that little bit of detail that lets you have an insight into its dark tale and it also does so in the same vein as the best that LOVECRAFT has to offer.
Will you enjoy the dark and twisted journey this game takes you on,well yes if you like a dark tale and one that is told with a true passion for the genre but if thats not you allways remember that those "BIRDS" outside your window may be watching you and they may just may speak your name next and if they do there will be no place to hide................................"WHATS THAT SCRATCHING AT THE WIND..........................................(and then there was naught but the silence of the grave and its cold embrace)
