Having just played Cycles, I found it to be a very interesting work. I was so enraptured by it, that I lost my self in the story and didn't even realise how time was going by until I had finished it all in one shot.

The plot:

You play as four different characters each in a different time and season. You reveal the dark past of the seemingly innocent town as you go. The time of the game encompasses several hundred years, although most of the game happens within a 50 year stretch. Expect only the unexpected with this dmod.

The only negative thing I have to say about the plot is the ending is too sudden. It's as if anticipating a sequel, but is a bit too abrupt even for that.

All in all, I give it a solid 8 for plot.

Graphics:

It uses his extra tree pack, which gives the scenes some variation. All in all, it's well done if nothing spectacular. Using the average mod as a basis, I give it a 9.

Sound:

Music is well placed. Nothing really special about it, though. I rate it a 7.

Gameplay:

Almost completely directed to the story, the gameplay has been totally changed. There are no changes of items, shops, magic, or just about anything else. It is an unusual system, and very interesting. For originality, I give it a 9.

Total score: 8.3
