    Spent an evening playing from start to finish. Very innovate game that captures the whole scared emotions of our youth.

    Rain also reminds you of the fun times as a kid too. It makes you feel things!

    This is such a melancholic game. Story was nice, gameplay is pretty good and has a Pyramid Head like character. Would recommend :D

    The game was pretty good and unique. Would’ve been nicer if the memories could be collected during the first run instead of second playthru.

    Being on a disc is nice, but both okami and strider have a mandatory install of 8gb and 4 gb respectively. It felt like they were just downloadable ver needing the disc to play. One reason I want it to be on disc is to save hdd space, so this seems like a fake disc version and defeats the purpose..

    I can smell the rareness all ready

    I need this. I loved the game. I for sure want a physical copy. I tried to look on play asia and they give me the box art for half a second then it disappears :( I want to pre-order now!

      Too bad it most likely won’t run directly from the disc though if it’s like strider or okami, not sure why the mandatory install that’s as big as the download ver, but need the disc to play :( the physical ver of those games are hoarding like 15gb on my PS 3 alrdy.. And the okami install took very long. Wonder if resident evil 4 and Veronica were like that too. Usually I wouldn’t mind double dipping to collect, but not like this..

    So is the game any good? In an experience persepective how does it hold up next to Journey or Tearaway?

    • David Vileta

      It’s not as remarkable because it feels limited by its mechanics. The stealth gameplay with monsters doesn’t suit it very well.
