Love what I see, but based on the app description, I'm so damn worried about the English in-game. :/ Might take a chance with this, but I'm still on the fence.

EDIT: This has me somewhat relieved. Still wish the title was "DYING: Sinner Escape" though.

EDIT 2: The app has in-app purchases. I'm downloading it right now. I assume they're the extra chapters. The link above says the second chapter should be available at launch. I've already invested in this, so there's no going back...let's hope it's good. I'll post in a bit.

Good catch. Not really sure. Either way, 5 minutes and my download should be done. I really, really hope this is good.

First impressions:
-Textures aren't great, not retina on the ipad 3/4
-The voice acting isn't that good and the whole story seems to be relying on a lot of clichs
-The english translation can be strange at times... (Nothing terrible though)
-A Confusing interface with some bugs

Gotta say, my first impressions are quite different from my dear friend, killercow.

I feel like the game benefits from a lack of retina. I know it's silly, but it really adds to the nitty gritty feel of the game. As far as the voice overs go, one of my favorite things about the first Resident Evil were the abysmal voice overs. They're not anywhere near as bad here, but I'm all for cheesy horror and don't mind them one bit. The controls are excellent in my opinion and I'm more than happy with this purchase. There are indeed IAPs for clues, but $5.99 will give you 99 clues, so take that as you will. No regrets with this, and I'd wholeheartedly recommend it.

EDIT: One second while I see what's with the other chapters. Totally forgot.

Oh, and I'm more than happy with the English. There are some extreeeeeeeeeeemely minor things, but this was definitely done by legit English speaking folks. Let's just say that you should be happy whoever wrote up the app description wasn't the same person who wrote the story.
