    Can anyone explain the two beginnings? At least they seemed like two.

    1) girl goes off, walking to school
    2) Mom tells girl her father is there, he drives her to school

    What was going on? After the girl l leaves for school the mom decorates the cake. I thought I was switched to a cutesy baking game at this point! I don't want the game, but I am confused by the beginning, and just curious! (I thought the first Natural Threats was a really good game.)

    I wanted to check this out last night, but my youngest was being a clingy-thingy, and I wasn't able to get near the computer at all!  Meh~

    Give It At Least 15 Minutes ****

    BASED ON FULL DEMO


    FIRST IMPRESSIONS

    INTENSE!
    Some people are going to hate this game from the start. The intro cut scene is ominous and involves a child. But we get past that. It is very well done though, lovers of spooky movies will love it...

    The opening interactions are also likely to put off a completely different set of people if they do not give the game a chance. At first, you may find the voiceover a bit annoying, the music DEFINITELY annoying and way too upbeat, and the whole atmosphere positively trite.

    For example, you first task is to decorate a very cutesy birthday cake for your daughter. After the intro and the threat it presented, it seems jarring. Then the scary stuff invades this happy scene, and you ‘get’ its relevance.

    SIGHTS & SOUNDS
    I love graphics full of lush green tropical things, and they are here in abundance. The graphics are very clear, well drawn and eerie. It’s part photo-realism, part drawing. Done in a fashion that is pretty much out of style now, but done exceptionally well. This is, though, some of the best disaster art I’ve seen in a game.

    They do interesting stuff with sound. The early cut scenes are very intense, and it is because the use of sound. The screams you hear sound like real screams. The acting is very good. And disturbing. There is little music after the first scene. It is all ambient sounds.

    WHAT’S HAPPENING
    Somehow, mutant plants have suddenly taken over the city. Your daughter and her father are somewhere in the city, and you take off after them. You meet other survivors and generally help where you can, while you search for them.

    MAKING PROGRESS
    The gameplay is straightforward and easy adventure. There are HO scenes with a list and a bit of interaction and you visit them twice. Not many puzzles, all of them easy, although with some nice twists. There is a journal, no map, and directional hint. I did not find the ‘getting around’ at all difficult, but it is fun.

    FAMOUS LAST WORDS
    Give this game a chance, and I think it will hook you. It’s not an extravaganza, there’s no bling!, but it is out of the ordinary and fun.

    I recommend this game!
