I found the story to be very compelling and the voice acting is of a high standard. It all moves along at a reasonable pace and I imagine that if you just concentrate on the story alone and don't looks for the collectables etc, you can probably blast through it in a few hours, but finding all the 200+ items can be very time consuming.
Annoyingly, I missed just 2 collectables on my playthrough and there's only a "new game" option once you finish the game, so I'm going to have to play the whole thing again to look for my missing 2 items! But, I'll enjoy that when I decide to replay as I enjoyed playing this anyway.
One other slight disappointment is the fact that there are only 4 side missions and all 4 can be found very early on in the game. It's almost as though the developers ran out of time or something as there are clearly other characters you come across that need help, but you just end up saying "I wish I could help". I can't help feeling that these were supposed to be side missions, but for whatever reason, they just ain't there!
But, as I say, I really enjoyed playing through this game and I pleased I decided to ignore all the reviews and buy it anyway. If I didn't then I'd have missed out on a very good game, even if it's not a 5 star game!
What you do get with this is a solid murder mystery in the same vein as LA Noire but with a supernatural twist. You basically spend the duration of the game investigating and solving smaller cases as well as investigating and following clues to the main case you have to solve! There is also an action element to the game which involves a simplistic mechanism where you battle demons, which unfortunately is the games weakest aspect as it is poorly implemented and seems to be an afterthought as it is quite easy and will only cause issues when the game glitches.
These glitches are where MSS loses its appeal as I encountered various issues with the QTE system when battling demons, the identifying of clues and selecting broke on one mission because I tried to exit early and then it would not let me select the clue which meant I had to start from the last checkpoint again and finally the look and feel of the game lacked a certain polish.
This however should not stop you from enjoying the story which in my opinion is this games major selling point as it one of the better attempts at a storyline in a game in all of the titles I have played recently and it is quite refreshing to see a developer actually implementing a solid story into their gameplay.
The graphics on MSS are not overly impressive but it more than makes up for it with some of the most atmospheric sound I have heard and you are guaranteed to get a shiver down your spine.
It's like a survival horror hybrid of Heavy Rain and LA Noir, only it isn't as good as either, nor that scary. So why three stars?
The mood is captured well with some nice graphics and the general gameplay is easy and accessible. The story is well delivered - but not ground breaking - and there's just about enough to see you through.
There are a few niggles/issues however. Such as:
The investigation system is not very dynamic and mostly involves walking around a space highlighting clues, then choosing a couple of the clues to solve the investigation. (If you choose wrong the only consequence is not completing the investigation with a three badge ranking. The game will still let you carry on until you get it right, which means you can't fail, which also means the puzzles, for the most part, are a bit pointless.)
The only enemies to dispatch (last level aside) are one type of demon that are annoying to kill due to the quick time event(QTE) required to actually get rid of them.
The load times can be massively infuriating, especially towards the end of the game and if you have to restart a checkpoint because you fluffed the QTE when trying to dispatch a demon.
That said there are some nice touches here. The possession skill adds some variety - especially when possessing a cat - and some of the side missions help flesh out the main story adequately. There's also plenty to collect for all the completionists out there.
This is a relaxing game to play through (despite the premise) because of the simplicity and plot.Read more ›
