Most underrated Square game of all time
16 January 2003 | by PlayerSSSee all my reviews

SPOILERS:

This game teaches some about the human body and makes you wonder at some points. The things about people spontaneously combusting is really something to ponder if you believe in that sort of thing. When I first played the game I thought it would be a down to earth game being on PS1. Instead it turned out to be real gory and neat. The park scene was a gross out. The horse setting on fire was a huge surprise and really cool or hot whichever way you want to look at it.

SPOILERS STOPPED

I've also liked this very much for the music. A good gory breakthrough for a PS1 game. 10/10
