I just finished this game last night. The last 2 hours of the "interactive movie mode" (as you call it) is about the biggest WTF-storm that I have ever encountered in my life. I'm not even sure how to rate the game; I was absolutely flabbergasted (in the most neutral way possible) by the amount of plot twists. And that final revelation after the credits -- I think my eye brows hit the ceiling after that. I'm genuinely not sure what to think of this game.

I absolutely loved the last few hours. that one scene where Solidus is dying and stretches his hand up was great and really rubs in the whole "haha, you killed the good guy" thing. way more interesting than the stupid Stillman/Fatman plot and most of what happened before the ending stretch, anyway.

and if you're really curious and want the after-the-credits thing explained, highlight: it was just junk data.


Oh no, it's a Goomba!

This was a great review -- you can thank Bluberry for pointing me to it, I know I am. The last couple paragraphs are of course perfect, but the whole review up to that point read naturally and really painted the game as being worth playing. It's a great review, that suddenly takes an awesome twist and reveals itself as something else entirely.

As contrasted against a great game that suddenly takes an absurd twist...

Thanks! And... I completely forgot this thread started by not talking about the review at all.

Edit: Wait, Dagoss mentions one thing from the review. I guess that counts!
