I'll tell you what.....this was one of the best stories if not thee best story we have ever played. You'll play 2 different characters, Kate and Dana, in different times which kept your interest/curiosity wondering "What the heck is this all about".
It took us 21 hours to complete playing 2/3 hours on the weekends. Towards the end it really took hold of my wife. She started yelling at Kate , " GO! GO KATE! GOOO! I had to pause there for a second and take a look at her.
I usually run the game and the wife does the reading. Works out well. She loves to read. There is a good amount of reading most related to the game. One of the nice features of the game is you are able to enlarge anything read by clicking on "Read" on the bottom of screen. If I were to change anything about this I would have liked for it to have been read to us. Whether it was something on a wall, something picked up or journal reading it was all very interesting and moved the game along
Inventory was really cool. It never got overwhelming, very few items as a matter of fact. You would inspect items able to spin them around. There were hot spots on items and when clicked on would give out information. The use of items was made very easy. When an item was needed this neat little Inventory display would pop up allowing you to scroll through the items you have and use
You'll talk to many characters along the way getting information from them and in some cases listening to some history. You are given choices to either ask a question or make a comment. Very simple choices and not choice overload
Puzzles were well integrated into the game and also well placed.
What ever time you were in, playing Kate or Dana, the scenes were amazing. There were scenes I would have loved to walk through myself, do some shopping, listen to the birds on the trails, hear the waterfall in the distance or sitting there waiting on the tram to take me somewhere
The game does have auto save but does save quite frequently. I think we had about 35 saves in total. We would watch for the save display to quit. The game would auto start at your last save but you could go to a previous save if wanted.
All in all I think the game was genious. Benoit Sokal would be proud. We loved it and can only hope they continue on developing Kates story. It has been quite a ride
