I came across this game through a Let's Play and knew right away that I MUST have it.
(It's not like I got a steam account ONLY FOR THIS GAME. . . )
The atmosphere is pretty dark, the story exciting and the characters interesting.... I personally think the graphics are much better than all the 3D stuff you often have to live with in games these days. In general, the look and the whole flair of playing appeals to me in the same way as old fairy tale books appeal to me. From the fucking goats I had nightmares O. o.
Fine I also find that there are several ends and the best end just requires the most work. And who uses pieces of Bach as soundtrack, he paid me anyway a stone in the board XD
I myself liked the full price, but don't hold it against anyone if he prefers to buy it at a sale. It's always worth playing.
