This neat and nifty little game has you piecing together small fragmented stories to form one singular one and it is a cool gem to have in your gaming collections. There are so many to choose, mix and match from, and because of that it offers much more than the gamer would think when booting this game up! For the $11 i got this for, it's worth it.

I think this game is pretty cool. It's like a huge murder mystery whose main driving force in the investigation is something akin to social media. You communicate with other people in relaying information, creating your own information, all in an attempt to uncover the truth. Clues come from different media that you sift through, stored together in this representation of what I assume to be a kind of cloud storage.
The concept is pretty cool, and the FMVs are really well shot. It has a really engaging plot and I think it's just top.
My only concern is that being a Massively Multiplayer game, I wonder how well this still plays in the future, when there are less people playing this game.
