This game is amazing, one of the best CoGs ever made. The plot is amazing, and always interesting and the characters have depth. One thing I have to say though, is that the three stats of investigation, charm, and technique don't seem to impact your choices. Even with 63% in technique I was able to make all the choices with that skill and never failed a check. The romance could be a little more developed, but it was still pretty well written. I absolutely recommend this game.
Ratings war has a great story and is very well written. I found myself playing it during the few patches of time throughout the day. It will take you 2-3 hours, especially if you pause to think about the big decisions you have to make. The different paths of fame and truth are prevalent throughout the entire story and got a bit stale at the very end, but honestly by that time, I had also enjoyed myself immensely. Great game and worth the few bucks!
I really enjoyed this game! It wasn't my favorite of choice of games' games, but it was definitely worth playing! The choices are also really satisfying at parts, and there were a few that I made, without regrets, that had no benefit other than the satisfaction of of a certain action! When you can pull off stuff like that in a game like this, it's a sign of good writing!^_^
