I binged true fear 1 and 2. The storyline in this game keeps me on my toes. There's enough horror elements to make me worried for a jump scare every so often. But overall, puzzles were challenging but went well with the storyline. I can't wait for true fear 3! And the game works great, not buggy. And its visually appealing.

I'm most of the way through the full game and really happy that it's so long - it's been awesome so far! The atmosphere is amazing, the gameplay is engrossing, the story is super eery and chilling, and it has very occasional but usually very well-done jump scares. I'm taking my time playing it to draw out the fun. Couple things: 1) Choosing a puzzle difficulty level - you can choose puzzle and gameplay difficulties separately, which is awesome! I like moderately challenging puzzles and found them easier than expected on Medium difficulty. I know you can change this but wanted to mention that, if you're a puzzle fan, go with the difficult setting from the start. I will keep mine on medium so I can report back, though (will replay on difficult later). 2) Choosing a gameplay difficulty level - I hate sparkles but chose the medium difficulty because I wanted to use hints if needed, especially because there is no written (ie, searchable) walkthrough yet that I can find. The sparkles aren't too bad in medium, though, and ironically often are found on objects that have no meaning or interactive value. This will annoy people who depend on the sparkles to find important objects, but for those of us who dislike sparkles and only want the hint availability, you can just ignore them because they aren't very informative anyway. It would be nice to customize settings (ie, hint but no sparkles), but that's a minor issue. 3) I did find a bug with the hint system - in medium difficulty, it restarts "filling up" if you open the map. I'm very rarely using hints, but when I am, I don't want to have to wait for a refill when I haven't used a hint in ages. It also took me a while to figure out what was happening, so I kept accidentally resetting the hint by opening the map and having to wait a long time. 4) A commenter on youtube mentioned a glitch in one of the puzzles where, if you press exit or reset, it resets the whole game instead of just the puzzle. I don't know details but wanted to pass on the warning because that's a horrible consequence. Otherwise, I'm so happy this finally came out. I was specifically looking for games like True Fear and coming up with nothing...then it turned out the sequel had just been released! Yay!

I've gone through this game three times now. I love it! imo Not as scary as the first one, except for one scene involving tokens, but I also knew what to expect. Graphics and story line are awesome. Controls can be a little sensitive at times and there *can* be a glitch with the lock under the bar (Not all of the pieces showed up in the kit, only about half - happened just once). Overall a great game and I'm looking forward to the third chapter but hopefully the scare factor will go up a bit.
