Thunderbolt: "This Is a Cry For Help brings me back to those days. Not because it ships in box; in fact, all I received in the mail was a single CD nestled tightly in a smooth slip barely thicker than a few sheets a paper. But once I popped the disc in my drive, I began to get the feeling of nostalgia. This Is a Cry For Help, you see, is not just a game (or rather, compilation of games). It is a complete package, filled with comics, sketches, animations, and commentary. Before I played a single game, I already had the feeling that I'd received something that had some love put into it. That had, if I may be so whimsical, soul."
