This game in my opinion is a brilliant piece of artwork, but as we all have seen in the past. Artwork is not always appreciated by people who are quite sensitive to shocking things. This game is best suited for young teens ranging from the ages of 14 and any age above that. The violence may be disturbing for anyone below that age. Even though there is no color (except black and white) and the "graphics" aren't realistic in the least. The idea of an 8 year old kid getting impaled by a bear trap or giant spider is quite a disturbing thought. For example: my 8 year old sister has watched the lord of the rings trilogy and did not become frightened at all, but when she saw our 8 year old hero get cut in-half by a bear trap she almost started to cry and it had an immediate effect on her witch I did not expect (I really didn't know she was gonna get scared, sorry) So this game is quite the shocker for younger kids but is the perfect buy for anyone from the age of 14 and higher if they love puzzles. This game also might be stimulating seeing that some of the puzzles are quite the challenge and can help a teen develop their problem solving skills witch might come in handy seeing that we live in a problem filled world. The games controls prove no problem and are easy to use. The games positive message can be interpreted in different ways but the most common one is that you never leave a sibling on their own no matter what and that love for one another(the boy for his sister) will prevail the over the forces of evil. This game is a sure 10 out of 10, a brilliant piece of art.
