1.0 out of 5 stars Freezes before finish!, 29 Mar 2014
Gameplay, graphics etc all excellent but the basic problem that the game freezes every time makes it unplayable. I have found that the only way to finish a game is to leave it overnight and then try again.

This game seriously needs a "fix" or the negative reviews will begin stacking up. If you want to download it, check that it has had its repair first or you will get frustrated with it.

This is a tricky review to write as you hate to knock people you admire (and you know you'll get negative feedback for doing so) but I found this one a bit of a let down considering what both guys can do.

As other reviewers have said, don't buy this CD if you think it's going to sound like Opeth or Porcupine Tree. For me it sounds a bit more like an ambient soundscape - it's difficult to pigeon hole the sound, but basically you won't find yourself jumping around to it!! For most parts there's not a lot going on.

Personally I find it too slow and ethereal. I really like PT and Opeth but this project doesn't do it for me. For sentimentality reasons I'd love to rate it… Read more
