Did You Know?


In a cut scene in chapter 6 we can see a car's license plate. It reads 'S LM 9691'. There's a blue plane on the left side, so it's definitely from Europe. According to the scheme of the characters and its color it must be from Germany. Because of the 'S' we can suggest that the story is set somewhere around the area of Stuttgart. See more »

Interesting during the first play through, but it gets repetitive on multiple play throughs.
30 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

This game is a time traveling type game that progresses more like a choose your own adventure book rather than a game. I would say it is more of an interactive movie than a game per se. Granted you do wander the small town and talk to people and such, but you must also watch numerous scenes of the protagonist talking to others trying to figure out what time he is in and what he can do to prevent himself from dying in the present. He is given the power to time travel by this strange person known as homunculus, he is given this power because the fates have decided that Eike (the protagonist) is strongly fated to die this day. Finding out ways to survive the present day and trying to uncover the clues as to why Eike is fated this day make up the majority of the game play. It is fun on the first play through or two, but to get all the endings you must do the same things quite often, with only slight differences to change up the pace, most of the main points of the story are exactly the same every time you play. Suffice to say I was only able to get two endings then I was kind of bored with the game. As for the game, it looks rather good for an early game on the playstation 2 and the game play consists mainly of running around town and talking to folks and getting certain items in your inventory that may save the character's life or perhaps doing something to change things that may save your life. Some of the death scenes are interesting, but some are bad as one has a vase falling and striking you from a distance and this occurs even if you are nowhere near a tall building. The two endings I got were not all that great, I suspect there is a good one in the mix, I just did not have the patients to keep playing again and again. Overall, an okay game with a somewhat interesting story that gets very repetitive when played multiple times.
