Kuro Completed 10/03 100/100 My single favorite game ever; it does things that few other games even attempt to do. There isn’t a simple, universally-accepted definition of art, but one criterion is whether or not a work rewards analysis; if we look closely, and think about the details, will we realize something about the painting/poem/movie/game that isn’t immediately obvious otherwise, something that enriches our experience with the work? In SH2’s case, yes. It succeeds as art in ways that many other games, including later games in the SH series, have tried and failed to follow.
