It can get a little rough around the edges in place, but what it lacks in polish in After Hours, it more than makes up for in atmospheric excellence.  The game can be unnecessarily intimidating at times, thanks to the thought out and meticulous attention to detail in the design of its setting and excellent use of sound.
