Lamp: smt: strange journey had the best and most interesting story of any game i played this year, even if it was poorly presented. the game has great atmosphere and a brooding, dangerous feel to the gameplay – it certainly makes every fight feel like something is at stake. but the game isn’t nearly expansive or, well, enjoyable enough to counterbalance what a complete fucking slog it becomes and how pointlessly it handicaps the player, over and over. the inorganic nature of the difficulty is really the one thing preventing this from being a truly great game.
