    I believe that home is a HUGE disappointment. mainly because of the fact you cant save your game so therefore if you make a single mistake you have to restart to entire story, and then once you've gotten past the section of the game where you made you previous mistake if you make another you have to restart the game again. the main reason why this game got a 4 rather than a zero is because the game did have a pretty good and creepy feel to it. to conclude i think that this game would be extremely enjoyable if there was a save feature or they removed the ability for the player to make decisions which make it impossible to continue Full Review »

    Home is a difficult beast to review, in that it is not necessarily a game. There is no ultimate objective, no invulnerable horror chasing you down, no health or numbers to gauge your success or failure. Instead, Home offers a plodding journey for answers in a dank world of numerous questions. Who did what? Am I the evil or the oppressed? Is everything as straightforward as it seems or convoluted as I fear? If these questions intrigue you, and if the opportunity to shape their answers by your choices is an equally appealing concept, I wholeheartedly recommend this short but fascinating adventure. Just don't expect your trip home to leave you entirely fulfilled; not all questions have answers. Full Review »

    A plot based game with no plot. I found the graphics to be well selected for a suspense game. Monsters are always scarier when you leave much to the imagination. But this wasn't utilized at all. There are no thrills to take advantage of the atmosphere. The game-play is extraordinarily simple and yet still quite buggy. Text screens frequently repeated for no reason. This game has no replay value and worse, it has no initial play value. Full Review »
