Fantastic game, one of the best adventure games to date
17 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A heart touching story, puzzles just right. A brilliant game, a true masterpiece. Terrific characters, beautiful sound track. A very heart warming and interesting game! Fascinating subject, plot. This is every bit of GK . I recently played GK for the first time. It's a good game, but I was completely blown away by this game. It's going to stay with me much longer than GK did. What a fantastic game! WOW! This is a fantastic adventure game. I thought GK was easy, this game isn't much more difficult or any less difficult. Some of the more difficult puzzles might win over GK's difficult puzzles. This game does not deserve to be seen as anything less than a CLASSIC. This game was fantastic. I'm a late 80s, early nineties guy and I've played Lucas arts, Sierra games, growing up. And this game was just truly a masterpiece. Any one who rates this down , really needs to stop putting the past on a pedestal ,this game is a masterpiece!

WOW! I am still touched by this game. GK was a great game, this can't compare, but I think it's stupid to compare the two. I have to say GK didn't leave me with a touched feeling, really. It had a dramatic ending , but I really didn't care about the supporting characters. This game is a master piece and is deeply touching up until the climax. What a beautiful game. I was blown away. A brilliant , pseudo science plot (Things I study in spare time, quantum theory) , intriguing, original characters , fantastic sound track. This game is truly unique, truly a gem. There will never be another one like it. When playing it you'll see how unique , original it's presentation is, and how relatable, organic these characters are, even the supporting characters were so dynamic, life like, and it didn't have a bunch of clichés in the story, plot, it was very moving. It's a very life like game, I'm really impressed.

Where as GK was a good game , compared to this, I will compare for this reason, the characters in that game are flat compared to this game. This game has dynamic, round characters and in the end it brings certain characters together in a beautiful , organic tapestry. This game is surreal...
