VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 5.0/5 (2 votes cast)

+, + some quite unique story moments that I’ve never before seen in a game, particularly the childhood story of a child with a spirit connection

– it was basically an interactive movie with little choice

+ the movie overall was relatively ok

+, – the camera is fixed most of the time, meaning many beautiful shots, but also sometimes forced and often dizzying or confusing camera movements

– but then there’s also moments when it’s not so great

+ decent soundtrack

– the characters aren’t very logical sometimes in their actions

+, + sometimes it looks almost fotorealistc, more like a ps4 than a ps3 game

– despite the occasional deeper military insights it turns into the standard american military saves the world type story (though this doesn’t affect the rest of the chapters too much). Would have been nice to see the story from the other side too instead of being so unidimensional. (in this case (surprisngly) it’s not the russians but the chinese that are the bad guys… are we entering a new age ? )

Conclusions: 2.5 (on a -5 to 5 scale), a quite unique and interesting experience and definitely better than we expected from the demo which was rather dissapointing (so much so that we delayed the purchase despite the great respect for the company behind Fahrenheti/Indigo Prophecy)
