A jewel of a game
19 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this game should be praised more for its immersive and compelling story rather than being a game itself. But of course I'm a huge fan of the revenge genre.

Still I think everything was done right from the intro to the ending because this just one of those games I would say gets you more interested into whatever is going on in their world rather than interactive gameplay, which definitely complements the whole revenge thing because revenge definitely needs a solid story.

It wasn't too long and not too short, because the game is pretty straight forward in what you have to do, and has a few RPG elements in it. Especially if you decide to be good or bad.

Oh and Michael Madsen should be added to the cast because his voice acting was awesome!
