Acerca deste jogo

Some say the old train station and hotel are a 'haunted hotspot', hidden away in the woods, forgotten by some, feared by others. The old hallways and train platforms echo with the ghosts of many eras, all trapped within the very fabric of the place, each hoping for salvation. The dusty old rooms seem possessed, exhibiting 'time slips' as the past becomes the present. You must tread very carefully, or you too many join the Lost Souls forever. So, why are you here?

Amy Haven went missing 5 Years ago. On the anniversary of the child's disappearance you, the Police Inspector who failed to find her, has returned to the Train Station and Hotel one last time. As you attempt to solve the mystery of Amy's disappearance you must face the horrors of your past. Someone, or something, does not want you to solve the mystery, that much is clear. Never turn your back on the darkness....for something hides there; something evil, unknowable and hungry.

Key features:

  • A stand-alone Dark Fall horror adventure.
  • Explore a derelict train station & hotel, abandoned since World War 2.
  • Experience 'timeslips' as the past becomes the present.
  • Communicate with ghosts, the Lost Souls, and attempt to free them from purgatory.
  • A hauntingly creepy score, to chill, alarm and horrify.
  • Explore the memories of the dead, in their own ‘nightmares’.
  • Discover the true identity, and power behind, the Dark Fall itself.
  • Play twisted 'Party Games' including Blind Man's Buff and Statues.
  • Solve a modern urban mystery, 'What Happened To Amy Haven?'
  • Use a Ouijaboard to meet and communicate with ghosts.
  • Survive the night in a realistic, abandoned location full of danger!

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you fused Dark Fall and Silent Hill together? I'll tell you what happens: you get Lost Souls, the creepiest game by far in the Dark Fall series. What a game. What a finish.

Where do I even begin, since it's all great? I love the look of this game. You can tell Jonathan Boakes definitely had a bigger budget to play with since this game moves away from the Myst like feel, and more towards 360 degree surroundings, in which your character turns, sweeping the surroundings around him, instead of slide images. Time has not been kind to the Dowerton Station and Hotel. In Dark Fall 1, the train station is unsettling, but still just an empty, abandoned train station. In DF: LS, Dowerton has turned into a hell hole - a place where vandalism, illicit activity, and even satanic activity have become commonplace. The train station and hotel is beautifully rendered, yet is visually disturbing. This game does not bank on jump scares, though I was suprised a couple times. The scares come from knowing that you are exploring an evil place.

The story is fairly simple and very reminiscent of a Silent Hill kind of story. You are an Inspector who failed to apprehend the kidnapper/murderer of a young girl named Amy. She was last seen at the train station. Your guilt and shame lead you to return to the station and hopefully find her and bring about closure. As you explore, you meet other ghosts who for some reason or other are also trapped in the hotel. Because you are such a nice inspector, you help these lost souls find their way so they can move on. Each ghost you help gives you a key that will be useful. What I love about this section is that you are able to jump back in time to 1947, seeing the hotel at its peak. It makes returning to the present all the more horrifying as you see the decay of the place.

Just like the previous Dark Fall games, the use of sound is great. With visuals and sound creating an eerie, disturbing world, this is a game that would definitely be one to play in the dark with a good set of headphones.

So, good basic story, good visuals and sound, what about the puzzles? They are by far the easiest puzzles in the Dark Fall series. Yes, you will still read a lot and you will need to take notes, but I feel that the puzzles are a lot more intuitive than the previous games. There are three floors to the Hotel, and each one serves as a kind of level. The Train Station itself serves as a level. Within each level, there are puzzles that are meant for just that area. To me, that makes this game a lot easier, unlike Dark Fall: The Journal where you just jump in and have no idea what the first objective is.

Speaking of learning objectives, your character has a cell phone! Throughout the game, you will receive texts that will give hints to where you should go, and the next mission. It will also serve as filling in parts of the story.

This game was a fitting conclusion to the Dark Fall series. I enjoyed revisiting the Dowerton Station and Hotel. It has really made me curious and excited to look at other games made by Jonathan Boakes. If you like ghost stories, you owe it to yourself to try the Dark Fall series.

This is by far, a great game. It's a bit longer than Scratches: Directors Cut (which btw, is NOT, I repeat, NOT available on steam anymore. Shame). Little bit more jump scares and what not than Scratches. Buy it.

If you like creepy adventure games (no action), get it on sale. No regrets on this purchase (got it on sale).

PROS:
-Creepy
-Good visual puzzles
-enjoyable story
-amusing voice acting

CONS:
-slow navigation through a large map
-unskippable dialogue (really annoying when you have to repeat it over and over ... there are some dialogue puzzles)
-sometimes knowing what to do next is near impossible to figure out without a walkthrough

Let me start by saying that I've played the other games up to this one, and I enjoyed them immensely, especially The Lost Crown. The atmosphere and the general vibe was pretty creepy, but with that said, this one seems to be even creepier. I've just started playing it, and from the start it seems like it's going to be an extremely difficult game. I like puzzles even though I'm not very good at them, so I'll probably have to consult a walkthrough, which is somethih8ng I rarely had to do with the others.

The way the camera moves is interesting, as it's very different from the other games in the series. I think it moves a bit too slow sometimes, but it's a minor annoyance. It sets for the eerie atmosphere I suppose. As for the other mechanics, like it's been said in other reviews, it's a bit difficult to grasp the 'move the objects' mechanic. I found myself throwing my mouse in every direction to figure out how to move something, but once again, it's a really minor annoyance.

All said so far, I like the game from what I've played of it. It genuinely creeped me out (I'm playing this before bed, joy), and I'm really excited to see more of the story unfold. Would definitely recommmend this to anyone who likes to get creeped out!

Haunted hotels just ain't what they used to be. Dark Fall: Lost Souls is... odd, to say the least, but it has a certain charm once you overcome its counterintuitive puzzles and embrace its world's dark peculiarity.

Dark Fall: Lost Souls dumps you in media res in a dark train tunnel full of detritus, apparently investigating the disappearance of a local girl that's been pinned on another local, unsavory character. Right from the get go, the puzzles in Lost Souls are incredibly obtuse, and are often more easily solved by just clicking everything and hoping something works rather than trying to apply any sort of logic to things. Step 1: collect any items. Step 2: Slam said items against everything and any other items in your inventory until something clicks. Step 3: If you're still buggered, maybe actually pay attention the lore-related bits.

That's something of an oversimplification, but you're likely to get frustrated on a regular basis if you think anything about this game is going to be straightforward. Bring some paper along with you in real life, take notes (especially if you see symbols involved in something), and keep an eye on the cursor at all times for any changes as you hover over things. Even then, there's likely to be trial and error involved.

Despite all this hardship, the story of Dark Fall: Lost Souls is interesting enough to stick with it and get through to the end. If you can, track down the other two Dark Fall games, or at least the first one, Dark Fall: The Journal. The Journal takes place in the same location as Lost Souls, so you can see what led to Lost Souls' events and get a bit more context. Dark Fall: Lights Out, the second game in the series, is a bit of a departure and is set elsewhere, but at least shares similar logic and is tied in tangentially to the other two.

My recommendation on this one is a bit tenuous and comes with caveats, but I liked it overall. If you feel the whole taking notes thing is a bit too much work, maybe pass on this one.

Although a fan of point and click adventures since the early days and someone who likes to dust off the emulator to play old favorites, I can't recommend this game, especially at full price. Luckily I got it at a deep discount.

The UI is clunky, voice acting mediocre, and pace slow as molasses, mainly due to the aformentioned unskippable bits and painfully slow panning to look around and move. It makes for boring gameplay, and multiple times I wandered off to get a snack or watch tv, forgetting I left the game running. Also annoying is the idiotic protagonist inspector who, after seeing many supernatural occurances seems to be in deep denial.

Its strengths, meanwhile, are the detailed graphics, music, and sound effects.

Dark Fall, Lost Souls is the third game in the Dark Fall series by Jonathan Boakes of Darkling Room. It is not necessary to have played the earlier games (The Journal, Lights Out) but I'm sure that once you've played Lost Souls you will want to see what else Darkling Room has to offer. This game is creepy as all hell!

You play as The Inspector - an ex police inspector who, several years before, investigated the disappearance of a young girl called Amy in the town of Dowerton. She was never found. You are back at Dowerton Railway Station and the Station Hotel, which are now in total disrepair due to them being abandoned shortly after Amy's disappearance. It is bonfire night and fireworks light up the sky above the eerie night-time setting. It soon becomes clear that some bad things have happened here. There are many lost souls - some good, some evil, lurking in the shadows. Some want to harm you but others need your help. You will be transported to times past in order to understand all the events that have taken place and to finally find your own fate. This is no ordinary place though. Jonathan Boakes, the creator, has surpassed himself in creating a world which is familiar enough to make you feel at home, yet weird enough to make it a very unsettling and scary place indeed.

I love point and click games and I love horror games. I picked up Dark Fall 1&2 on another site and really can't recommend them more. Incredible and weird horror game master class from the second golden era of point and click.

This is a well put together game, but I feel like it's lacking a lot. There was no wonder or magic and not a whole lot of tension, however the first two are just so incredible that it might have skewed my view on it a little.

If you like this sort of thing and it's going cheap I'd say give it a go but personally I wasn't feeling it.

This game follows on from Dark Fall 1: The Journal; it is set in the same hotel and you meet some of the same characters although there is no need to have played the first one to understand this one (there is also a 2nd one - Lights out - but that one is a lot less scary and is set somewhere different); Lost Souls happily stands alone. You are a detective bent on solving the disappearance of a girl called Amy. It turns out later that this has become an obsession that has made you a bit crazy. But the main part of the game consists of exploring the old Station Hotel, which has become hideously warped and messed up since it is possessed by a creepy supernatural evil called the Dark Fall (you know this from the earlier games). There is also the ghost of the girl you are searching for and other souls trapped in the hotel that you can free.

The thing about this game is that its really really scary, so much so that I only finished it for the sake of finishing it and used the walkthrough to get it done as soon as possible. I usually love Jonathan Boakes' games who is a master of creepy adventure games; he is one of my favourite game creators ever (especially The Lost Crown; you should totally play that if you're vaguely interested in this). Chiefly, the decor of the hotel is terrifying; aside from blood smears everywhere, the corridors are dark, there are incredibly creepy mannequins everywhere and the scissor collections still haunt me (a bed stabbed dozens of times, and a wall equally covered in scissors in the room of a doomed soul - although artsy, its just horrible).

I set this game apart from Boakes' other creations because it steps over a line the others didn't cross. For one thing, there is blood, and quite a lot of it. There's still no all-out violence which is good; I think that would make me turn away from Boakes forever. But the blood is mainly just gross and indicative of brutality. There are also weird bloody writhing creatures that you have to kill with scissors which is also gross and just unpleasant.

Then there is threat of actual violence being done to your player character; I have not seen this before in his games and it was horrible. I am referring to one scene in the game where a ridiculously creepy creature is cowering in the corner but moves towards you as the light flickers. You have until it reaches you to solve a little puzzle which isn't difficult but the enormity of stress that I felt made it so bad. If you fail to solve it in time the scene changes to you being defibrilatored in hospital and you have to try again.

When I first loaded into the game the first thing I noticed which was different were the controls; you can look in for directions all around you as well as above and below each direction. You also swivel to change view rather than blocking from one frame to another. This immediately changes the way you feel about looking another way; it takes time, which builds suspense and, in my case, dread. It slows the game down considerably, especially when you find you went the wrong way or are not sure where to head next. This makes it frustrating as well. It is also hard to follow. Without the walkthrough I would have given up way earlier.

Another irritation is that you can't actually explore that much of the hotel; the number of rooms available to look in is very limited which is kindof annoying for me since I really enjoyed the freedom to enter every room in the hotel in the first game. However, since the parts of the hotel you can see are so terrifying I'm ok with not seeing more of it. I'd have just preferred a game based on mystery rather than shock and horror, like the first ones.

It wasn't all bad though; there are some scenes which transport you back in time where you have to solve some puzzles to free someone's soul. These are very nice; mainly because they remove you from the horrible deformed hotel you arrived in, and the puzzles are quite nice, although irritatingly repetitive if you get them wrong the first time. Overall however I'm going to uninstall this and pretend it never happened and hope the nightmares go away...

i kept hoping the story would get interesting despite everything that was getting in my way, but it didn't. the underdeveloped story is trapped behind the awkward navigation and enough back-and-forth to leave me impatiently waiting for it to let me click through to the next standable point. the horror aspect is just vague bones and blood so not scary and barely creepy. puzzles mostly felt like chores. i wouldn't even recommend this to adventure game fans.

Dark Fall: Lost Souls is a splendid game, if you like point and click puzzle games. Unfortunately i'm not a fan. The game story was rather delightful and the graphics were relatively decent but voice acting was simply atrocious, the puzzles felt uninspired and lackluster (as the case when you constantly have to backtrack through previous areas) and the loading times aren't the best. However it's not a bad game and i'm sure if you don't use a walkthrough you could be spending 10+ hours in the first (and only 3) areas.

Ok, that's an interesting game, the enviroment is very good, graphics are really nice. The story is nice as well but the gameplay is very fuzzy. I mean, there's a lot of good ideas in this game (grabbing something with the mouse button and shaking the mouse to interact with the objects is a wonderful idea of interaction), but this game could call more attention on steam if the developer suited this point & click to a new game engine like Blender for exemple. It could be like Myst IV interaction (the players can see the scenery just moving the mouse to the corners of the screen) but with the same ideas of the dark fall's iinteraction. The other problem is: some puzzles are not well explained. I had to search on youtube about how to solve 3 or 4 puzzles, and that's not a good thing to do in a poin&click game. So my conclusion is: Dark Fall Lost Souls was a really great game in 2009, but nowdays it is just a nice game. I have 100% of sure that this game could be soo much better if the developer released a new version using a new engine.

Great stuff! This is probably the closest there's ever been to "Sapphire and Steel The Video Game"
Eerie noises, great, atmospheric visuals, tons of atmosphere and a very intelligently put together story.

It won't be for everyone to be sure - the gameplay is slow and some of the puzzles are a touch obscure but if you appreciate that vein of classic eerie British T.V. from the 60's, 70's and early 80's (it's largely gone terribly downhill from there alas!) there's a great deal to enjoy here. Well done to Mr Boakes, I'll look forward to your new games with eager anticipation.

I've played Dark Fall 1&2, and found the puzzles satisfying to solve on my own. I just started this game and I have already had to consult a walkthru three times, and in 2 of those occasions the solutions were things I had already tried, but weird quirks meant that even though I had the correct solutions the game wouldn't accept them. Bad game design abounds. Point & Click is often Point & Drag, so that things which seem to have failed actually would, inexpicably, have worked if you had just clicked and then moved the mouse all the way past the edges of the screen.

First off, only get this game on sale. Even though I recommend it, I don't for $13. It's more of a under $5 game. Also if you are looking for a really creepy game that keeps you on your toes, and/or have balls of steel, then this game might not be for you. This game has a few good jump scares but for the most part you end up losing the fear until the jump scare puts you back into it. And if you are pretty comfy with most horror games then the jump scares will make you jump a bit then be like "Meh." Finally, if you want a 'simple' game that is easy to play, then this isn't for you either. The puzzles are hard and for most of the game me and my friend had a guide we would go to every time we couldn't figure what to do.

With all the said, Me and my friend enjoyed the game. The surroundings were spooking, the story was interesting. Hell the main reason we didn't want to stop was because we wanted to figure things out. Why was he there? What were those statue? The Voice acting is pretty bad though, I remember asking my friend if they just pulled some guy off the coding crew to voice the main character. I think that might be my biggest complaint, that the voice acting was horrible. It really pulled you out of the game whenever they spoke, especially the main character. But I've dealt with worse.

If you are easily creeped out and good at puzzle games, I recommend the game. If you are more into being chased and always having to be on your toes, then maybe you should go look somewhere else.

I played this game before the other two and I loved it...so I bought those and will be playing this again. This game is a nonlinear horror that had me tense all the time and scared a lot of the time. Though the game is nonlinear, there are some things that need done before you can move on. Sometimes, what needs to be done is not obvious so you pretty much have to go around and try different things until you can move on. There is a quite wonderful guide on Steam (I'm sorry I don't remember the name of the one who made it, but qudos to you). This is definately not a game for children. The game has two endings and several very interesting easter eggs about hauntings and weird happenings around the area of the game. I really liked that and looked to collect them all. Some of the mechanics of the game are a little hard to work with (like moving things), but keep trying and some of the puzzles (like "conversations with...") were downright frustrating. All in all, even though I needed some help, I had a great time. Thanks to the devs and all for a great scare, and another and another....

Dark Fall: Lolst Souls was a very compelling game featuring ghost's and solving the mystery as to what happened to the little girl Amy, the difficulty was extremely great. Tthe game was able to challenge your mind on every level. However the ending could've been better than it was.

You've been called to point and click your way through a mystery down at the old abandoned hotel and train station. It isn't long though before you're ambushed by G-G-G-GHOSTS?!? Lucky for you, you have a bottle of vodka, a handful of Clozapine and a helpful buddy with a serious texting habit. Your adventure is celebrated by the town by putting on a fireworks display in your honor but can you avoid the spooky skeletons and delerium tremens long enough to yank the mask off old man Withers?

Excellent ambiance, Don't play alone alone in the dark. Bottle of vodka reccomended for player as well as character.

Genre: Point and Click Adventure

Back in the day when adventure gaming was king, I resented the FPS for slowly and systematically killing off the genre that helped define my childhood (Sierra and LucasArts adventure games were amongst my favorite back then) but if this is the sorry state of point and click adventure gaming today then pass me the club whilst I bash its head in.

Whilst I don't play much point and click adventures these days having somewhat moved passed them (although I still do love a good one when it comes around), Dark Fall: Lost Souls has got to rank as one of the worst I have played. This ghost story is something I would expect to have read out to me in some classroom by some over enthusiastic grade scholar with aspiring dreams to be the next Stephen King - except when you hear the story you realize in your heart of hearts that it's never going to happen. You play the game as an Inspector who is trying to solve the case of a young missing girl. Having tampered with the evidence to get a certain suspect convicted you find yourself out of work and desperate to solve the actual case and redeem yourself. Your investigations begin to uncover some paranormal connection and things begin to take a decidedly darker turn.

Graphically the game is serviceable but the voice acting is so ear-splittingly awful I wanted to vomit every time the inspector opened his mouth to say something. This is one game you'll be wiser to just turn the volume right down. I got this on one of the sales so I don't feel cheated as I think I paid $2 but I wouldn't seriously think about going any higher than that price wise unless you are in it just for the laughs because if this was supposed to be scary or chilling or even clever it missed the mark completely.

A bit of a 'meh' game, really. If Steam had the option for a middle spot between recommend and don't recommend, I'd choose it. It had its moments, some of the puzzles were good and much of the story was okay as well, but nothing really shone. Some confusing UI. Some horrible voice acting (and some okay). Some cheesy horror aspects. No ability to skip repetitive dialog or animations. Quite linear, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but there are some obtuse prerequisites to move the story along at times. For instance, you're in a room, do everything you can...and move on. Explore some other area, do all you can...then get stuck. Well if you then go back to the first area, something will have changed for some reason...triggered by something else you did but for no apparent reason.

But overall, it just didn't grip me enough to make me want to work through things...or I would just assume something illogical was going on even if in the end it just might have just taken a little more scrutiny...but time I didn't feel like spending on it.

In the end, it was good enough that I at least was willing to finish it. I got it on a 75% Steam sale, so I can't complain. If you like horror/spooky and maybe have an interest in the occult, it might grip you more than it did me and you can overlook some of its flaws.

Fantastic addition to the series. IF you like point and click horror games, Lost Souls is perfect. The more time you spend looking, the faster the game goes and the better it gets. This isn't a game for the impatient, but if you get frustrated you can always find a walkthrough.

Pros:

-Atmosphere is perfect, you're often wondering who put the poop in your pants.
-Fun and challenging puzzles, you really have to use your brain.
-More versatile with angles compared to the first game.

Cons:

-A few bugs, mainly for me when I was piecing together a ripped up picture it would freeze.
-The lockpicking was irritating.

There is nothing like good horror game and this is one of the best I've played.
This third instalment in "Dark Fall" -trilogy provides interesting storyline and most of the puzzles are logical. Some players might be annoyed with moving mechanics which are out of date, but this did not drive me off. (horror almost did :) )
One of the brightest pearls in small lake of horror games; check the 2 prior Dark Falls too and note that all 3 games have independent stories.

what can I say? the game has a very good and scary atmosphere, and this is what made me to decide to give thumb up.
voice acing is poor and the gameplay is not so funny (i endd myself sometimes bored) but visuals and the overall atmosphere is very very very well conceived.
so thumb up, consider buying only if you find this game under 5€

As a person who enjoyed what I managed to play of the old "Dark Fall" (before it became incompatible with my operating system), it was a real novelty to go back to Dowerton Station and re-experience interaction with some of the more memorable characters from the first game -- and ultimately bring closure to the wandering ghosts.

The story is fairly mediocre and predictable this time (it also fails to explain what the "Dark Fall" is, which will confuse any who hadn't played the first two games), but what was outstanding about the first "Dark Fall" carries over into this one. The puzzles are clever, original and solvable. There is plenty of exploration and the environments are very well rendered (granted, it takes you forever to move from place to place). The game provides a few really effective scares (only 2-3 jump scares), and a tense atmosphere. There is also enough surrealism to make any survival horror veteran uneasy.

By far, the best part of this game is the sheer amount of time you spend scissoring things. I don't think I've ever used so many pairs of scissors so many times and so consistently in an adventure game. I personally feel the scissoring makes up for most of the very bad plot devices. Completely.

All in all: Don't play for the story. Play it for the puzzles. Stay for the scissoring.

Oh man, Dark Fall: Lost Souls is one of the best adventure games I've ever played. It's not scary but it definitely has a GREAT atmosphere. The visual creativity will stay with you and the puzzles are great. I found myself writing in a notebook for the first time in YEARS with this game and loved it.

This game is very spooky and certainly an interesting play. It is a sequel to Dark Fall: The Journal, which in turn is based upon an episode of an old British sci-fi show called Sapphire and Steel. The game is somewhat restricted as you can only move on certain paths, but the atmosphere and the puzzles can keep you guessing for hours, specially as you penetrate deeper into the ruined railway hotel and make your way upstairs to confront the evil that infests the place. And not all evil things are darkness and shadows...

Ok, that's an interesting game, the enviroment is very good, graphics are really nice. The story is nice as well but the gameplay is very fuzzy. I mean, there's a lot of good ideas in this game (grabbing something with the mouse button and shaking the mouse to interact with the objects is a wonderful idea of interaction), but this game could call more attention on steam if the developer suited this point & click to a new game engine like Blender for exemple. It could be like Myst IV interaction (the players can see the scenery just moving the mouse to the corners of the screen) but with the same ideas of the dark fall's iinteraction. The other problem is: some puzzles are not well explained. I had to search on youtube about how to solve 3 or 4 puzzles, and that's not a good thing to do in a poin&click game. So my conclusion is: Dark Fall Lost Souls was a really great game in 2009, but nowdays it is just a nice game. I have 100% of sure that this game could be soo much better if the developer released a new version using a new engine.

It is hard to write a review on this game, because on the one hand we have a lot of good puzzles, great visuals and not bad sound effects. On the other hand we have terrible voice acting, a few stupid puzzles like a "go somewhere, where you have already been and search every screen for something" and the most important, let's say "not the best ending". So, we have not a bad game, but it's still a little worse than the 1st and 2nd chapters. Nevertheless if you like adventures and especially some paranormal investigations, this game is definitely for you.

i kept hoping the story would get interesting despite everything that was getting in my way, but it didn't. the underdeveloped story is trapped behind the awkward navigation and enough back-and-forth to leave me impatiently waiting for it to let me click through to the next standable point. the horror aspect is just vague bones and blood so not scary and barely creepy. puzzles mostly felt like chores. i wouldn't even recommend this to adventure game fans.

Bought it because I liked the art and design elements in the game, but just because a game looks nice doesn't mean it is. This point-and-click game turned out to be terrible. I completed it just so I have it completed rather than leave it unfinished. It was brutal, especially since he took my hours to even try to figure out the very beginning untill I looked online for a game Guide.

Yeah, there were odd scarey bits, but nothing that made up for the slow and boring gameplay and storyline, which frequently deviated to sub-story events and the search for items to progress through them, then going back to continue on your main path to collect more items, solve more puzzles, many of which you have no idea how they even tie in. Most of, if not all, the items you collect are very obscure and sometimes seem thrown in with no explanation as well as the puzzle's lack of hints as to where completion items can be found.

This game actually gave me a headache and just so I knew where to go next and where to get the puzzle pieces, I played this game by way of a game step-by-step guide after spending 20 minutes stuck on one side story puzzle.


NOTE: This is my personal opinion and thoughts of the game, not an overall view if the game for general audience. As with many reviews and opinions, take this with a grain of salt and do your own research.
