RATINGS:

ATMOSPHERE: 20/20

STORY: 13/20

CONTROLS: 10/20

SOUND: 20/20

GRAPHICS: 12/20

OVERALL: 75%

The story starts off sort of weak but picks up in a great way only to end as a complete head scratcher. A case of making the game forty minutes shorter would have made the story much more powerful. Controls aren’t great. This could have been perfect for such a late release on the system too but the game just looks so dark in all the wrong ways. Enjoyable but far from perfect. – CS

Try not to let a puppet bite your neck, peeps!
