Complete opposite of Gloves and found it to be captivating. I went with an 8/10. Loved the episodic breakdown and the story was always moving along. The combat could have been better though and sort of let it down. I played it on release so not sure if it has aged well.

Pretty much mirror my own thoughts

The Twin Peaks-inspired setting is fantastic. A+ world building for its time.

The combat mechanics are a complete and utter bust, and ruins the experience.


I agree with this almost word for word, but the game manages a 7/10 for me. Loved the Twin Peaks vibe, but found the gameplay repetitive and the story occasionally tripping over itself.

Still, it was a big step in the right direction for games as a storytelling medium. I'm definitely looking forward to a sequel.
