SPPOOONNNS oh hi mark
this seems to have all the passion of Tennessee Williams.
Dealing with the dialog, you'd have to have seen all or at least know something about the movie to get it. The dialog is, for the most part, taken straight from the movie.
This is a 10 star game.
Why is this a game?
First off, I'd like to say the game is pretty and smooth. It's great in terms of design. I'd love to see something like this for a game that's, well, more of a game. I've played up to where I'm supposed to meet at the park, and so far the game has been near entirely: "Go here. Okay, done." That isn't fun. It's busy work.
For the exceptions that actually have gameplay there's been sandwich making, recording everything, football, and the lone fight. I can't really see any of these as much more than busy work either, though. The fight was cute but had so few options and as a single event can't involve any more strategy. Sandwich was alright, but the place, cut, and place again was getting repetitive even before you had to make a second. Personally, I didn't have much trouble recording everything, even if the ultimate position for the recorder didn't make a whole lot of sense to me, but since people apparently had trouble with it, I guess this is the one part of the game that needs thinking, so credit to that part. Football is fine, but it's not much of a game. I doubt a submission consisting of that would go over well.
So, that leaves the dialogue. I, personally, just found it sort of boring. The parts that weren't random chatter came down to cliche romance drama. But even giving the benefit of the doubt that some people like the dialogue, why try and make a "game" out of it? I guess that's what it comes down to. Why is this a game? The interactivity has been only token, and clicking through the dialogue does not enhance it.
Reading through some reviews, it seems there's multiple endings, so I guess it starts having gameplay at some point, but I think I've played more than enough without to justify stopping. Sorry, it's just boring.
