NOTICE!: Do not assume you can buy this game and it comes with a free friend pass. The friend pass does NOT work. It's an old promotion that is no longer available. Your friend you play with will also need to purchase the game.

My friend missed a quick time event and everyone died.

Apart from the controls I absolutely love The Dark Pictures Anthology Man of Medan.
Most of the Gameplay (5/10) consists of making a "left or right" choices.
These decisions determine the relationship you have with the other characters but they could also mean the difference between life or death.
You control walking with your character but not as much as I would have hoped. Apart from performing some timed actions most of it is a story driven movie.
It is nice that the game makes you play each character at least once so you can influence their behavior.
The voice acting is quite good and fit the characters perfectly. Sound 9/10
Graphics are 8.5/10, very nice in general, lots of effort has been put in the facial expressions, especially with the eyes.
Excellent story line 10/10, it was what kept me playing.
I only finished it once. I didn't manage to keep anyone alive but I am going to try again and make different choices.
Because of the many endings it has, the replay value is high.
Don't expect an action packed game though, it really isn't. Good for those nights you feel slower :P

Played it with my girlfriend, and I hated it.
Or, to be more precise: My girlfriend almost died out of laughter because I was scared by every little jumpscare, and now she realized I'm not as strong as I try to look like.
So, yeah, this game might be good, but **** it anyway.

Out of curiosity I did a search of 'Medan' on the internet. Oh, its a city in Indonesia which makes sense because the story takes place in the Pacific. I then found a reference to the SS Ourang Medan. Ourang means 'man' in Indonesian language, hence 'Man of Medan'. Found a rather interesting story about the SS Ourang Medan. Definitely the basis for this story. If interested, look it up on the internet! Enjoy.
Have played for 2 hours so far. The game has me hooked. Always like a good story.

When I was a little kid, this is what I imagined all games would be like in the future.

Wow very good game its a story line game kind of like a movie i can compare it to the walking dead and the bunker and a way out and the uncertain if you played any of them games you will know what this is about it has a great deep story line and the game is ran on you, you decide the outcomes of the story i played this game with a friend so i dont know what single player is like but each decision you make through out the game MATTERS not only that but you and your co-op friend if you chose to play with him get different cutscenes at times making it unique and makes you want to replay the story as the other character because you dont know what the other person sees you still meet up and make decisions together as at times the choices you make matter on the other person so over all very very good game and great story line a chill layed back game :)
