Did anyone finish this? Is it worth sticking with? I've played it for about an hour and so far, so not impressed. The controls are awful, the graphics are beyond bad and it all just feels a little silly. I need to give it more time but I'm struggling to summon up the enthusiasm right now. I'm hearing this is a 40-60 hour game. Is that right?!?

I thought I might enjoy it in a stupid, weird way but I just couldn't get it into it at all and gave up after about an hour or 2. I still have it so I may go back to it some day...

It's quite engrossing when you get into it but you have to be prepared for the fact that literally nothing can happen from one hour to the next. It's more like being a character in a slow-moving TV show than a traditional game. I'm probably about half way in a year after buying it but it's something i go back to now and again and play for a few hours. Sometimes no other game will do.

Still on Episode 1, put about 5 hours into this game and I might actually be warming to it......

When I'm done with my copy - maybe in a few weeks time - I'll put it up for swaps...

So... the map.... rubbish isn't it?

One thing that I'm not sure about are the little 'character figures' shown on the map. I understand that a little blue male figure shows the location of a male character and a little red female figure shows the location of a female character. I also understand that if a symbol of a computer is shown next to the character figure, it means that they will give you a side-quest to complete. What I don't understand is why some of the character figures on the map are 4 or 5 times larger than others. From what I can gather, some conditions (like weather conditions or time of the day) have to be correct for a character to offer you a side quest, so are the large character figures to denote that this character can give you a side quest, but the conditions aren't right?

Any other ideas? I've tried Googling, but don't seem to be able to find an answer anywhere

Finished this on Friday evening. It was the bizarrest, shittest, most fantastic game. I'm still not sure what to think of it. From episode 3 onwards, I was totally hooked on the storyline, I loved the setting and the characters were great. That said, I'm glad I'm done with it. The map was awful, the controls - particularly the aiming - aren't good and for every brilliant moment, there's a shit one. I'm glad I stuck with it. Great game, if you have the patience
