This game is an odd one. Granted I am sure the fact that all the characters are speaking with a British accent has to do with the American company that got a hold of it, but that is not the only problem with it. The main problem is that it is to hard. I like how the story plays out in it, you go through scenarios using the various characters in the game and see how the story unfolds through each person's eyes. You will go over the same terrain others did with different objectives, you will go over certain areas during certain times, things you do in a level may make it so another can proceed through the level later. Like I said though it is to hard, I got used to progressing through the levels and surviving, but I really do not see how one is supposed to traverse this game without the help from a guide as you have to do some rather strange things at times to make it through a level the right way. One level you had to go into a house and wet a towel and stick it in a freezer so another character could use it later as a distraction. How the heck is one supposed to come up with this on his own without the help of a guide, seriously? I stopped playing this one as I got tired of running from my room to the room with the computer so I could find out what strange things I had to do in the level to progress through it. It is annoying, perhaps one day I can buy a laptop and set up a wireless single so I can have a computer right there with me or I can find an old guide. Because trust me, you really have to be an individual who thinks way outside the box to get through some of the levels correctly. Shame, the game is very atmospheric and the story is interesting, just gets annoying trying to figure out how to get through some levels properly.
