This game... sh*t.
This is by far the most exciting, intense, and thrilling mystery game I have ever played. I can't stress how perfect the story is. I would pay twice as much for just the novel part alone, but to add on: the puzzles make it that much more engaging and satisfying. At times i literally jumped out of my seat because I was so excited to solve one or more of the puzzles. Then at certain times I sat there, staring at the screen because I couldn't believe that the story could possibly take such a turn!
I was a huge fan of 999, but that did not change my mind while deciding if this game was fun. It totally fills in the gaps from 999, but knowing the storyline of the previous game is not necessary. The game is not too terribly hard, the puzzles are challenging but if you get stuck, you can switch it to easy mode at any time (without losing any of the story) and the characters in the game will drop you hints.
I cannot possibly stress how perfect this game is. It is my 2012 game of the year without a doubt, and on the top 10 games of all time list. Don't hesitate to try it out!
FYI: I preordered both versions of this game (one for me, one for my brother), and have tried them both out. I only beat the Vita version, but both games are relatively the same (besides the 3D/two screen vs the single touchscreen bit).
