Off-Site Reviews

When writing this review, I've continually been aware that perhaps I'm taking
the game more seriously than it wants to be. I work at a human rights
organization directly involved with issues - U.S. detention and interrogation
policy, the proper role of civil liberties in wartime - which are very close
to those implicated by Eternal Vigilance. As a result, I found the premise of
being put in an interrogator's shoes and turned loose fascinating, if
disturbing, and was eager to explore the dynamics of security.

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

I was the wrong audience at the wrong time for this game. Nevertheless, I am who I am and it is when it is, and since Iím the one writing this review Iím here to report that I found Internal Vigilance thudding and exasperating rather than the thought-provoking exercise Iím sure it was intended to be.
