Our videos of The Park

When we first heard about The Park, we had pretty high expectations concerning the experience the game would provide. As a mother looking for her lost son in a creepy amusement park, we believed we'd be bound to be completely captivated by the story. We never thought the game would have much to offer in terms of gameplay mechanics, as it was obviously going to be what people like to call a walking simulator. So that's not what disappointed us, the problem is that we completed the game in barely an hour (and not two or three as the developers claimed), and we didn't even rush. Considering its price, we wouldn't recommend it despite its unsettling story. It is never truly scary but the atmosphere and the subject itself will make you feel uneasy. Aside from the debate around what is a game and what is not, it's sadly hard to understand the lack of content and length.

Yeah...this is not really a thrilling game. My problem with this game is, that it has too long and boring events, the main character is talking and talking and....just not the way horror should be done, I think.

My problem with this game, apart from having finished it in 45 minutes is that it is not a game at all, you do nothing but walk most of the time; the only good thing about it is atmosphere which doesnt warrant its price for that length whatsoever. Games like The Vanishing of Ethan Carter are great but this is not the case.

Wow, what a let down. The atmosphere looks awesome and the gameplay videos look like the game is setting up for a great horror game, but only an hour?! That means the 10 minutes of gameplay I just saw was 1/6 of the entire game.

This is a bigger ripoff than the movie theaters. I'd pay $5 for this no-replay-value game. No more.
