Other Comments

This is a game with many paths, yet I can only describe it with 2 words. Utter horror. You've been warned. After reading all the comments on the choice of games forum, As well as playing myself, I'm actually surprised that the game's age rating is 12+ and not 17+. Oh well, who am I to argue?
