It's hard to sell DP on paper. It's got personality.

It has so much personality and atmosphere and the story is engaging and fun to play through. The games flaws, which at first seem game breaking, become part of what you love so much about the game over time. If you like Twin Peaks or weird games in general you will love this game most likely. It has more personality than any game this gen.

It has the most... soul... of any game I've played.

It's not a game. It's an experience.



The gameplay sucks. It really does. But it's not unplayable.

The story, characters and game world are where DP outshines pretty much everything made in the last 10-15 years.

It's a really nice read - but I think the Author gushes a bit too much to be objective. Also, I dislike his "the crappier the controls are the better the game is!" position.

Everything up to that point was quite good, though.

It's a crappy, budget game with a weird story, so Gamefaqs blows it out of proportion.

Story is interesting and kept me very intrigued, the town is full of unique and interesting characters as well. The music is very unique and adds to an atmosphere that is unlike any other game i have played.

Pretty much Story, characters and atmosphere make it easier to ignore the rough graphics and bad controls.
