Taking the role of Henry Edwards, Hyde explores the mind of a business tycoon’s son. Initially Henry is a man who appears to have it all, but as the lines between the past and the present begin to blur, his lifestyle and upbringing begin to be called into question. Hyde’s game-play fits securely into the genre of Interactive Fiction, whilst following a gripping thriller narrative. You need not click on anything in Hyde, nor do you need to remember any complex controls; Just W,A,S & D to move, and move the Mouse to look around.
This was an okay game, but had a few issues that truly held it back for me. There is absolutely no interactivity what so ever and I found myself bored holding down the walk forward button. I like the story, but I knew where it was going the minute I read the title. It gives away any sense of surprise.
Pros: Music, Dialogue, Art Direction
Cons: Predictable, Slow Moving Character, No Interactivity
