i would say yes. but it really depends on what you like. in my personal opinion this game is amazing in every aspect, i love the story, the setting, grahpics are great. if you like a good game with a good story and setting to go with it.i would say yeah buy it. its a unique game, one of a kind if you will.

It depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking for a game with lots of puzzles and interaction then no, this isn't the game for you. But if you're looking for something that will really make you think, go for it!

this is not a game & it will not make you think you walk from A to B and thats about it
no peaple to talk to and no animals anywhere and it is very short around 60 mins
it has four chapters & when i was at the end i thought i had finished chapter one
still i found it charming but only buy it if its on sale...

Yes! It was extremely breath taking! The end even made my eyes swell a bit. Worth every minute and all of my $2.50. Would have gladly paid $10 for this experience.

The "no people to talk to and no animals anywhere" is an important factor of the game that contributes to the lonely environment. If you expect every game to be a Skyrim clone I'm afraid you are sadly mistaken.

i am not moaning about no people or animals anywhere to be found, i was just explaining to anyone what is in the game or rather what is not in the game, would i buy it again NO why
because it is on rails i just wish i could have explored every inch of the island,
the game reminds me of the movie Get Carter with michael cain where he gets shot at the end of the movie on the beach between Horden & Blackhall the same beach i used to explore when i was 12 years old & mr cain give me a bottle of pop...

NO! It is not a game. It's quite ridiculous actually. You just walk from start point to end point, at a snails pace I might add. There is NO real story line, NO climax, NO big finish. Nothing. Just a strole on some island. Sure the graphics are nice, but as a 3D Content Developer myself, I see this every day. I don't need to casually strole through it too.

wow, u just dont under stand, the game isnt like any thing els i have ever seen before. a true master piece. the fact that u dont like it cause its "boring" is completely faulse. games dont need guns, shooting, or action to make it good. this game is good thanks to its amazing story, and quality, i think it is a must buy.

Clearly you don't understand the concept of "game".
If you see your neighbour taking a walk with a friend, do you think "wow, what a great game they've got going on over there" ? Umm.. No you don't.

They should have called this a digital story, or something like that. But it is definitely not a game.

If you see your neighbour taking a walk, of course you don't think they're playing a game. But if you see your neighbour interacting with a computer based on the way its feedback changes when he gives various inputs, and he's acting with some goal in mind for the purpose of entertainment, then that sounds a lot like a game to me.

Exactly. :-)

Oddly enough, on my play through I saw no "interacting", or "feedback changes", or even "inputs" for that matter. :-)

Oh well. Regardless. It's, as j4960s said "a short digital story". End of story.
And I am officially unsubscribing from the thread. Can't beat a dead horse.
