Coming into this review I was dubious.
Usually interactive movies are little more than a click here or
there. Plus with the cover blurb stating "From the makers of
The 7th Guest & The 11th Hour" which are 2 of the worst
games ever, so I was quite surprised with this
The game starts up from the main
menu where you can select to continue or start a new session. From
here you begin the movie. Now from here it is so evident that the
movie is so very much B grade. The movie starts with an introduction
by John Hurt as to what happened to a couple years before that were
patients of his. He asks you for his assistance in the form of video
episodes to piece together what happened.
The basic story revolves around a
couple who's daughter has died in an accident, the wife has gone
into severe depression. A nurse arrives to help but soon you begin
to realize there is some other motives at work here.
After each 5 to 10 minute episode
you are asked some questions about each episode and some questions
about yourself. Based on the answers you give the story can change
somewhat thus the variable running time.
While not the best storyline or
acting is involved, the interactive portions are fun and the what's
going to happen next factor really make you enjoy it more.
