An entertaining little game with a great story line.
The Bunker isn't the most "involved" video game you're going to play. It doesn't require any strenuous input, there's no epic combat sequences nor are there any brain teasing puzzles to solve. Essentially, it's an interactive movie. You're free to explore and unravel the story through finding documents, recordings and objects, but your path is largely set for you; you've just got to get there.
This is an introspective story on a well-explored topic: the Lone Survivor in a dystopian future . It's done pretty well too, and has a good soundtrack for the presentation, but it's not a game as the gamer community would define. The Bunker is an interactive story, where choices matter and actions have consequences.
This game is a bit slow paced and not as good as the game Late Shift, but it doesn't mean that it is a bad game.
This game shaped Late Shift and if you start playing it with an open mind you can forgive it for not being perfect.
One play through of the game will take somewhere between two and three hours, depending on how much time you take to absorb everything the game throws at you.
Trying to piece together the story is part of the fun, but even when you think you understand, the plot is always chasing you.
The Bunker is a special game in that it tries to be different from everything else. The way in which it plays out completely in live-action is extremely commendable and it's executed very well in the core point-and-click game
If you're curious in seeing what it's like to play a live-action game, then The Bunker is certainly worth trying.
Conclusion - An entertaining little game with a great story line. I had a nice evening playing it and maybe you might too.
