The game Bionic Heart by Winter Wolves is altogether an interesting and worthwhile game to buy. The game is about life on Earth in a futuristic time, where global warming has caused an unusual consequence. Due to the Earth’s “polarization,” it has mysteriously caused rainfall on almost every part of the Earth to occur frequently.

You start off the game as Luke Black, a talented nano-tech engineer that is struggling with his girlfriend, who he does not wish to marry. He doesn’t wish to marry her, and says that “1 out of 10 couples get married. Doesn’t that tell you [his girlfriend] something?”

You are left with a choice in the conversation after she responds, and you can either choose to ask for more time in your relationship with her or try living together.

This is one example of the game’s interactive features, which is probably the strongest aspect of the game. In a way you get to form your own character, and choose what he does.

Given it is a PC game, the graphics are of fairly high quality and allow you to step into your character’s shoes. When Helen comes inside your house for example, you get a few moments to fully absorb the detailed graphics of her face and body. She is a prototype on the run, and stays at Luke’s house for a period of time.

Apart from its interactive features and detailed graphics, the plot itself is what really enraptures the player. As soon as Helen decides to stay, you quickly become involved in trying to find out more about her and where she’s from.

There are, however, downsides to the game. As interactive as it is, you cannot independently move as you can in other games such as Halo PC or Need for Speed Most Wanted. You must click what you wish to do, such as walking into your bathroom requires menu clicks, not independent movement.

Also, dialogue between characters (and even when you’re talking to yourself) appears on a menu without actual lip movement. This can be slightly distracting and definitely takes away from the game’s overall appeal.

Finally, the options for what to do become limited after a while. If you happen to get stumped or click on the same option more than once, there is hardly a time that the dialogue is modified. Occasionally when you walk around and ask someone the same thing multiple times, they might say something different, but the characters frequently repeat the same line. In conclusion, I’d rate it a 3/5.
