Pleasing Walk in the Woods
24 March 2016 | by ahmadshah2370See all my reviews

The game was a great surprise for me. The graphics and the voice acting was very good. The world had a lot of details in it. When you start your job as a firefighter, you can have some time to acquaint yourself with the new living place, new places and so on, and it felt very refreshing. Everyone can connect the place with their own experience. It will definitely feel like taking a break in wilderness.

When the game started, it showed a lot of promise to provide many mind-wrecking puzzles. There were books, funny maps, there were letters, many objects in peculiar places, which gave a nice touch to make the world believable, but those things did not create anything like a grand puzzle. In such an exploration based game, you would hope to crack many secrets, find many hidden places with the history, invest time to solve a difficult puzzle, but there was no such thing. I believe that initially developers had a lot of in their minds, but later on they left their all nifty ideas and somehow finished the game with an anti-climatic finish with no layers of mystery.

It is not a conventional "good game". One should take the game to experience the wilderness of the Park. Dialogues were nice too, sometimes funny, sometimes deep, but I craved for more. Anyway, this game will be memorable one for me, I would remember running in that place for a long time I guess. Story, gameplay, this may disappoint you, but excellent graphics and nice sound will soothe your mind. Giving it 7 for its pleasing environment.
