The red case looks awesome. Its a brilliant game even though its a quick finish depending on how good you are with games it has a interesting story line, the only reason you'll finish it quick is it'll hook you in and you'll want to know what happens hence the long sessions.

Effectively two different endings straight away there. So 26 endings can be done over two days with ease.
Doing any variation possible, you will not gain anything more than 17 endings, just for repeat

Right, you don't need to start a new every time you want to see an other ending. You can load a chapter from your savegame and let a character die and play through the end. This saves another ending. So spunkybunny, it's not BS, the timestamps are real !

Thats total BS. I finished the game once in 4 days and as one of the trophies is to see all the endings they would have to finish it 17 times. Even a fast play through took me 2 days. Just the load times is a few hours then there is the gameplay. It takes at least about 4-5 mins to load each level.

When it was first talked about before it came out and to hype it up they said it had 26 endings but it looks like it ended with 17... I've seen 3 so far, on my 4th play through now.

The DLC has 5 endings and I've only seen 4 of them. I can't work out how to do the last one yet but I'm still trying.

I have to agree its a must buy

26? I made just one, didn't know was 26 different ways to finish it. Cool cheap release, but useless without move+eye toy. Game simply struck, trying to load.

Actually, just 17 endings are possible. Where you read about 26?

And the killer is alwasy the same. Was cool if doing something different, the killer was different too

No. No online mode or something like that. Everything can / must be done offline. And for $29.99 you really can't do anything wrong with this awesome game.
