TrustedReviews: Overclocked: A History of Violence

It's hard to recommend that anyone else rush out and buy this game. Overclocked seems to have taken elements from Fahrenheit and applied them to a classic point-and-click adventure style, but Fahrenheit worked because it gave you choices and immersed you intellectually and emotionally in its world.
