        Late Shift reviews and comments

        This game caught my attention for sure. FMV in this time an age? Sure, let's see what it has in store! This type of premise is something I can get behind!

        And then I played it and now I want to back away from it as much as possible while wielding a bat.

        It's such a frustrating experience. I can see the hallmarks of what could be a great story with a timer that forces you to make split second decisions. It's setting itself up to be a thriller with a story around a MacGuffin. But the [i]characters[/i]. The fucking characters are so stilted and poorly written, as well as the needlessly contrived and convoluted plot. i liked no character throughout my entire playthrough, and felt no sadness when some died. And this wasn't an intentional thing, as I could tell they were trying to get us to like or empathize with them. Don't get me started on the acting too - for an FMV game that relies on real filmed scenes, the acting was awful at points.

        This game has multiple endings, so I wanted to go and revisit them, but there is absolutely no skip forward feature through scenes you've already seen, and no save function that I can recall. I was not putting myself through the excruciating experience of playing this again, so I looked up the other endings online, and the none of them are written well. I'll at least commend the game for having branching narratives with the choices, but the story was wholly unengaging and made that effort worthless.

        Avoid, avoid. There are better choice based games out there.

        Interesting, can always take advantage of other Possibilities, or try ... Entertaining

        Exciting (interactive) film. If you stand on well-made Stories, you can risk a Look.

        I wouldn't call it a whole game, but troŵmal something else with a really cool story that you can influence

        Gorgeous and interactive Thriller with really good Actors that also seem believable. There is absolutely nothing that many Scenes are seen double and triple just to get the missing Achievements.

        A really Game just put an End to it, ' managed ' ' and I think the Game is really well done. The Camera guidance Is like a good Cinema Flam and the Camera itself is really cool! The Decisions are good and these are exactly the Decisions you would have in real. Buy Recommendation

        I really had my Doubts and I don't write a Review frequently, but this "Game" is really well done. Can only recommend it to anyone. When I realized that it is only spoken in close terms, I almost wanted to give it back, but thank God I did not. Look forward to the next Path, which I will take.

        (Almost) Each of your Decisions has serious Consequences. This illustrates this Game with well-shot and beautiful Film sequences based on YOUR elections. Fleeing or Giving? Mergites or Going Behind? You have to ask such questions in the Game Late Shift to learn one of the 7 Ends. I really can only recommend it;)

        5/5 We want more!!! Very awesome Game! After two passes, I can say that some Ends really come suddenly;D What I could think of very well is when you have this one together with Your girlfriend on a cosy Evening! " Film "looks and quickly presses pause in the Decision Moments. Then there will be a vote. You want to know directly what the End would have been if you had decided differently here and there. I see that here at Steam Guides there are shades for all the Achievements. Luckily I haven't clicked on it yet and I don't plan to. Replacing a Guide on a Storytelling Game is, in my Opinion, the worst thing you can do.

        Price: €13am or €8am on Sale Key Pages: Not found buy Recommendation: Yes but in Sale game time: About 70 Minutes for one Run. For all 7 Endings about 6-9 Hours Target Group: Everyone Story: Well implemented Story and because of the various selection options well thought Out graphic: Good 1080p Video recorded PC requirements: Potato PC Difficles Grade: No Difficulty present Bugs: Sometimes the Tone with the Subtitle is not quite in sync other things: The first 20 Minutes are ingenious, the ends are different. All in all, the Game is a change. The Story is well and thoughtful.
