First impression - The game starts out a bit like a Stephen King novel (I'm pretty sure there's some references in there), sets the scene nicely and can tell its building up nicely for a mind bender of a journey.
Wake comes across as a bit of a d**k to be honest at the start, in the way he acts with his wife, which I found annoying, but as you play further through the dark and tangled forest, the character gradually breaks down due to the situation.
The game play gets quite repetitive at times and each episode seems strung out by long walks in the woodland fighting shadow demon red necks with next to no ammo, for a little bit more of the story, but once you get round that and focus on the story itself, it becomes enjoyable.
It borrows from Silent Hill in some cases too, but isn't as mind capturing a world as it should be for the type of game.
All in all, for the price it is now and genre of game I would say its worth a play through.
