While I can't say that my time with the Butterfly Sign was entirely wasted, it's tough for me to recommend the title. Wonderful graphics aside, the game's decision to focus solely on its narrative becomes cumbersome given the half-baked feeling of the story itself.

The visuals may be nice, but the core experience is dull, streamlined, and hard to follow—if you can even get past the scores of crashes and glitches that make it a challenge just to start the game.

The story is quite interesting and by the end of chapter one you will probably find yourself having a fare idea of what's going on, what went on and who you are… but there are some more questions left to answer and that is obviously the hook to keep you going. Visually it's quite a treat (other than the previously mentioned lighting issue) and the puzzles aren't too taxing so you can progress without feeling to laboured.
