Delron Review Compilation
To me, the story is one of the game's strongest points. Once you get over its implausibility (instead of calling the police, the lone security guard decides to lock everyone inside the building *with* the insane killer - and the fact that there were no eyewitnesses to the numerous murders in a party filled with guests is slightly unbelievable), you actually find that the story is quite interesting and morbidly compelling. Deaths are varied and interesting (head in the microwave, dagger sticking out of head, that kind of thing), you nearly always have something to do as a result of the fast-paced narrative, and lots of red herrings mean the player is kept guessing right until the end as to who the murderer actually is. Although it is a murder mystery, there isn't really much to tell you actually *who* the murderer is, and even if you do guess, it doesn't influence the game. So in that respect, it's a bit like reading a book. I personally wasn't taking it too seriously, and that way, I think I was able to enjoy it more.
