It is a quite short-ish game, and took me about 10 hours of gameplay to finish.
Overall, there is a compelling central mystery with some genuinely scary enemies, but it is a bit of a shame as there are some really great concepts in here, but I felt a bit short changed. Like the game was rushed to release, and there is little genuine challenge in completing it. Despite this, I feel it's worth a look to most gamers.
You play the recently departed Ronan, who sets out to solve his own murder at the hands of a serial killer who has been terrorizing the sleepy and creepy town of Salem. Okay from the location alone, you know where this story is going, right? Salem has a nice vibe to it, with ghostly remnants of the past fused (usually violently) into the present architecture. During your ten-or-so hour play through the game you’ll visit slightly cliqued locations, however given that this story is clearly going for a certain kind of theme I can forgive it. As a ghost you can pass through walls and other such objects, unfortunately however the entire damn town has been consecrated (thank you puritans) and as such your ghostly freedoms are now really restricted. Okay I understand there had to be limitations of just how far you can go, but why did it just about every single building in town need to be just as solid in death as in life?
Speaking of powers, this was where the game could have really shined. However yet again you’re hampered with a lack of commitment to the powers that should have been on offer to you. Your abilities are heavily contextualised and their effects and range seem to change to suit whatever you find before you. Of all my faults with the game, it is this that disappointed me the most.
I know from the above it sounds like I hated the game; however nothing could be further from the truth.Read more ›
It's like L.A Noire, minus the polish, and has been watered down in the difficulty department to the point of 'my mum could play it'. In fact, now that I think about it, this is probably the kind of game that my mum might play if she were remotely into games. It's just such a shame because the premise is so good, the first 10-15 mins I thought I was in for a treat... then, pants.
I would 'maybe' recommend the story, if it was not so riddled with cliche and predictability. There really is not much here for your money. The end credits were rolling just 7 hours after I started the game, completed in one sitting....
+Good voice acting and overall presentation is it's strong point
- Just about everything else. Gameplay, story and fun is terrible.
- Will be in the bargain bins and pre-owned section of GAME for £4.99 before you know it.
The game is a bit like LA Noire mixed with heavy rain but is still it's own unique game which alone gives the game a reason worth playing.
The story is simple, Ronan, a criminal turned cop, gets killed by a serial killer and is now hunting him down from the afterlife so that he will complete his final goal and get sent to heaven, or someplace to spend eternity with his dead wife ( he probably didn't think that one through).
When it comes to gameplay it breaks down to three things; walking to the next area, finding clues and then working out what happened and finally dealing with demons which I absolutely despised.
When you get to investigation areas you have to look around the room for clues, some obvious, others you may spend a while finding though not all the clues are necessary to find, when you find the clues or at the least the necessary ones you can attempt to give the answer(s) to a question such as "what was the killer doing here" when it comes to these questions they are pretty easy to solve, I had trouble sometimes but came down to misunderstanding what it was asking. Although the game sometimes treats you like an idiot sometimes, I did feel like a detective which is a big plus.
Now onto the demons. I hate them, their annoying and did not need to be in this game. It turns into a very bad stealth/action game. The way it works is you either try to get around them or you can try to execute them by simply getting behind one, pressing R2 and then moving in a direction and pressing one of the buttons. But if they spot you they will suck out your soul (I think) and you will... die?Read more ›

It's ok to pass the time. The only problem is that it's repetitive. You basically do the same thing in every chapter and even the side missions you do the same thing. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Mr. Ian P. Lock
It's a good game, and the story was fine, and surprising a times. I did though feel that it missed something storywise, but it is what it is. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Rikke H.
I enjoyed this game as it has a really good story and solving your own murder is awesome. Some sections and collecting stuff will get annoying. Good for trophy hunting too.Published 16 months ago by Daniel Clason
