Ok, Siren. This is an interesting game that will make you very nervous. There is a lot of sneaking around which made my palms sweat because I am definitely not a good sneaker. The game is a lot of fun, however, the accents are rubbish. These are Japanese people who speak with strange British accents. Siren is a real challenge though, there is no hand holding in this game. Either you get it right, or you get shot (or beaten or stabbed....etc). Basically, you play many different characters throughout the game. You're attempting to run away from these things called Shibitos. The crappy part is, you can't kill them, which would have made the game easier. You can only stun them for a minute or 2. That also makes the game scarier. My only complaint about the game is the confusing storyline part. You have a screen that tells you how each persons Day and time are related etc. I never really figured out what it meant or how anybody was related. Maybe with Siren 2 they will fix that because it is one aspect of the game that will leave you wondering.
On the stroke of midnight everything changed. A terrible force has taken hold in the Japanese village of Hanyuda. The surrounding sea has turned the colour of blood and slowly but surely the village's inhabitants are changing, becoming vile creatures, fuelled by evil. This is the story of three days in a living nightmare. Seen through the eyes of ten characters, each embroiled in their own personal fight for survival, Siren immerses the gamer in a claustrophobic world of fear, mystery and suspense. During these three days chronology is irrelevant - episodes do not take place in sequence and the only way to understand what has happened is to witness the horrors that unfold before all ten individuals. Characters can steal the viewpoint of others in their surroundings, foreseeing danger and predicting enemies actions. But in a world of unspeakable evil and horrific visions, this extraordinary observational power could be more of a curse than a blessing.
