It must be on sale due to  used copies being $56.

Weird, I noticed it was at this price a few days ago on amazon for about a 24 hour period, then shot back up.

Took me about 6ish hours to finish this and I wouldn’t recommend it for this price. No reason to replay it and nothing about it was very memorable.

That's odd - the IGN review gave it an 8.6 and said it was around 15 hours to complete, as well as being very atmospheric/engrossing and that the narrative branch changes significantly based on what skills you focus on for your main character and that the story kept him really engaged.

 

I'm in for one, thanks!

Well this is the first time I’ve ever heard of IGN being wrong , maybe they plagiarized their review from someone that didn’t actually play the game because it was a 6/10 at best .

IGN is definitely NOT the place for good video game reviews.

Took me about 15-20 hours to do everything in this game for the full 1000G. If you run through it without looking for all the secrets and trying for the different endings, you'll only get half that time. But shit, if I'm spending $50 on a game, you bet your ass I'm gonna do everything I possibly can. It looks like shit visually but if you're even vaguely interested in the Cthulhu mythos, this is a good price.

Not disagreeing with you, but in your opinion, what are some of the better sites/sources/streamers for reviews?

ACG on YouTube is probably the best video reviewer. Otherwise I just use metacritic or no reviews at all.

This will get so much cheaper in the next few months. Definitely not worth it at $30.

I honestly don’t know how ACG gets through as many games as he does, especially with his reviews running longer than most of the mainstream gaming outlets. If I had to keep that sort of pace, I would be burned out in a matter of months. Great for those of us looking for the hot take though.

Karak (ACG) is fantastic. Not sure what his background is but in addition to the reviews of the games themselves he has some legit understanding of sound processing and graphic effects/systems, to say nothing of his incredible idioms.

did you play it?

 

as for reviews, i think it's best to go with the overall metacritic score

I watched a dude play through it and thought it was rather interesting.  He made some choices I wouldn't have but I thought it was interesting enough for a purchase to see the other outcomes.  On top of that I had $10 in bing rewards, so for just under $22 I think it is worth it.
