    So, I finally got around to playing Nightmare on the Pacific yesterday. Whilst there are no ghosts, creepy crawlies or macabre of any kind, I would still deem this a D&E game for the horrifying reality of the situation you find yourself in.

    And yet, it's the reality of the game that threw me off. If you're going to give us a horrifying real-life story, make it friggin' realistic! Suspect Because I was focused on the reality, physics and logic kept butting in to make me say, "What the hell?!"

    Beautiful graphics, a definite sense of urgency, fairly good voice acting, but c'mon! Some of the tasks they require you to do are absolutely ridiculous, reminiscent of Curse of the Opera when you have to pour gasoline on a fire.

    There is a ton of back-and-forth to the game, which I usually enjoy, but in this game it was tedious because you had to retrace your steps over and over again.

    I got it for a good price, and it was worth playing, but I wish they had made the tasks and situations a bit more believable.

    Interactive Poseidon Adventure. Exceptionally Cinematic. ****

    January 30, 2012

    What makes this game extraordinary is the atmosphere. A very strong feeling of impending doom is created by using excellent ambient noise (realistic sounds of a ship falling apart), parts of the ship falling around you and characters' voices crying for help. Right from the beginning you feel an urgency to get on with it as fast as you possibly can. This game draws you into story as none other I've ever played.

    If you're old enough to recognize the movie you know exactly what to expect, and you'll enjoy this very cinematic game. You play the wife in a family stranded on a rapidly and noisily disintegrating ocean liner. You're separated from the others, so your task is obvious. Rescue the others and get off the ship.

    I found the graphics great, and the map essential - there are a lot of locations. Though others complained about its length it took me several hours to complete. I did have to use the walkthrough more than I'd have liked, but thank goodness it was there. The gameplay was logical enough, although at times you do have to think outside the box.

    I'd say that trying it would be a great idea, if only for the unusual experience.

    I recommend this game!

    I really loved this one when I first started, but came to dislike it as more and more unbelievable situations arose -- it's a pet peeve of mine.

    I barely notice in most games if they do that (or are chronologically impaired), I see it, but it just rolls on past me
