    Can you handle the horror? I think not, but I sure would like to see you try, that's if you can stand the action, the exploration, and the intense plot.

  3. A thrilling gaming experience with its cinematic excellence, beautiful scenery and solid "survival horror RPG" gameplay.

  5. A great story-driven game that takes elements of several genres to create a worthwhile experience.

  7. The game is over way too quickly, even if you do have the patience to sit through the endless conversations.

  9. Although the game is short in terms of playability and has some glaring flaws it still earns a joystick up from this reviewer.

  11. Scary it ain't, but D2's got its morbid charms.

  13. The desolate landscapes and depressing feeling of isolation from normal everyday existence that Laura Parton goes through, slaying mutants and eating bunnies, is felt more in this Dreamcast title than in the non-stop action feast that Claire Redfield goes through in Capcom's "Resident Evil: Code Veronica."

    Taken with a healthy dose of tolerance, D-2 really shouldn't be a bad game to add to your collection..

  17. Horrible battle scenes, fractured gameplay, touch-and-go storyline.

  19. Things take too long, RPG elements are vague and control is quite weak - but if you're prepared to put up with it then you gain access to rather a good story and cinematic adventure.

    Ends up with all the worst aspects of a badly translated foreign film -- it doesn't quite make sense, the lips never sync up right, and the pacing will bore you to tears.

  23. Kenji Eno has created one of the most engaging stories of all time and given it support in every way possible, except the one that matters most: gameplay.

  25. An almost complete lack of gameplay, very cheesy dialog, and a whole lot of boring repetition keep Kenji Eno's latest creation from being anything more than a complete dud, which could be what the D stands for (just kidding... I think).

  27. Although D2 is as stylish as other Warp titles have proven to be, it just isn't any fun. A myriad of other complaints make this a rental, at best.

  29. Every gamer who doesn't play D2 because he read this review means that at least the two days of life I lost playing it weren't totally wasted.

    This game, this story , this atmosphere is just very mystical an engaging. There is something that I just cannot explain, and probobly cannot be explained in words. Although the gameplay isnt great, what is great about this game is the story, music and atmosphere. There is just something mystical about this title. If you look past the flaws of the gameplay, this is a masterpiece. Full Review »

    More of a cinematic movie with some interaction than an actual game. But I had a whole lot of fun watching it nonetheless.
