Summary

My favorite game ever!

The Good

What I really like about this game is the fact that I feel that I AM a character. Unlike any other game I can think of, the character actually means something and interacts perfectly with other characters. And it's not like other games where time doesn't pass by unless you do something. No, just like in real life, time passes by regardless of whether you do anything or not, and characters just interact with each other. It just feels too real, and the characters are really deep and each has its own story. The train is beautifully remade, and you can just chill out, do nothing, go talk to people, overhear their conversations, listen to a concert by its passengers, steal things, read people's diaries... and most importantly find out who killed your friend who was on the train before you jumped in. 100/100 Job perfectly done.

The Bad

The animations might be a little primitive, but considering the year the game was made they're excellent, and after a while, you'll get used to them.

The Bottom Line

JUST BUY THIS GAME!
