Any game that starts with an apology letter is bound to be great.

A wise man once told me: "An awesome game that takes forever to make will be awesome, but a bad game that ships on time will always be bad".

This isn't a game, it's a bunch of cutscenes. Regardless of what Kojima tries to tell you, that doesn't make it a game.

While I'm sure your team slaved over it and learned a lot of valuable lessons about game development, all we saw was a flash movie. You could have had a game if you spent your time making a playable character instead of cutscenes, scrolling credits, bouncing balls, options sliders and a level editor.

Next time, focus on making the game fun first.

If I could go lower than 1 on fun I would. The level editor is a good idea, ONLY if the game is fun. What's with the tutorial, is that an attempt at humor? How do I get out of the level editor?

Do you remember the brief period in the early nineties when FMV was all the rage?

I no longer fear hell after witnessing this non-game.

The only thing missing from this particular entry is the game.
- Richard Dansky, Red Storm
After a considerable amount of poking around, I still can't find anything I'd call a game, but there are signs that a lot of work was done and that saved this from a lower score. A more realistic final grade might be "incomplete".

A great slap in the face to anyone interested in videogames... or just anyone with a face.
- Nate Fox, Sucker Punch
Can't be allowed to win because it's not a game. Could have been interesting, but potential alone doesn't score points. Nice soundtrack, though.
