+ innovative gameplay - first time QTEs didn't bother me;
+ amazing atmosphere;
+ enthralling and captivating - it was hard to stop playing, I wanted desperately to get to know what happens next;
+ lots of choices and different paths through the game.

- the plot didn't make that much sense if you stopped to think about it. It was more of an interactive action movie that relies on emotions and action scenes to impact the viewer/player than a mystery/adventure to challenge her intellect.
- the only female character with more than 10 minutes of screen time was a mere support/sidekick.
- standard cardboard-cut dumb police that was completely useless.
- some plot holes and unexplained stuff left in the end.
