I Really Like It!Plasros | Aug. 8, 2013 | See all Plasros's reviews »
I fell in love with this game from nearly the start as it goes slow for the first few minutes then things get going to a final crescendo that i thought i had already guessed but as with most good games of this type its not always as you think it is. The best part of this game is the sound effects and music, i highly recommend using headphones to play or playing via a really good sound setup. There were many times that a sound wasnt what it what you thought it was hence the insanity name in the title. If your into the post apocalyptic genre then you need to check this one out, oh and the end of the game isnt when you finally get outside

I've wanted to play this game since the first time I saw out, but since it got pretty bad reviews when it came out I decided to wait.
Visually the game is decent, but nothing to write home about. The sound design is OK, but the voice acting is terrible. Some of the worst voice acting I've come across in a game to be honest, although it didn't bother me enough to stop playing completely.
The first half of the game plays somewhat like a Dead Space clone with a few puzzles thrown into the mix here and there, but it changes into a post-apocalyptic shooter/action game about halfway through. Melee combat in this game is not really good and even though there are quite a selection of melee weapons with slightly different animations, they all feel the same and they all have the same finishing animation. You basically just click the mouse until an enemy dies and there is no real challenge throughout the whole game when it comes to melee combat. It doesn't really get any more challenging when you have guns either. In fact, the only times I recall dying throughout the game was during boos fights and puzzles that I didn't solve on time. Some of the puzzles where interesting, but the tutorials for them are mostly useless and you are left to figure what you are supposed to do and how to do it pretty much on your own.
The story was not terrible but also not one of the better stories out there. The story did, however, become predictable pretty early on and I saw the ending coming a mile away and I'm pretty sure everybody that played the game experienced the same thing.
Overall it was not a bad experience and even though I enjoyed most of the game, I'm glad I didn't buy it on release and I probably won't ever play it again. I just hope the developers have learned their lesson and that the sequel will be a better thought out, more polished product.
