I wish I could have given this a higher score. The author clearly had a lot of fun writing it. In the history of CYS this was a significant game.

Readers are presented with many options, most of which are hogwash, and the rest ultimately lead to the same ending.

This story was carried by humor and decent editing. In the early days random death links all over the place may have been an acceptable formula, but standards have risen dramatically. I would really like to see what the same writer would do today, probably something completely different.

With all the miscellaneous errands and pointless roundabouts in this game using the item feature of the editor could add quite a bit to the story. The final showdown, which was admittedly fun, would have been better if items and individual choices made during the story had an impact.

As it stands there is only one way to the final fight, only one way to win that, and as far as I can tell, only one ending.

Still, funny, occasionally very clever (The chemistry segment really stands out), with very nice spurts of characterization, and overall, a nice job.

It was linear, the deaths were lame, I disliked it in general, I don't understand why it's on the list of best games, and I had to go through the entire freaking thing so that I could give it the rating it deserved.

I normally wouldn't have bothered to go through a game I hated just so I could give it a bad rating, but I wanted to make sure my rating was listed on here so that if I checked the game out in the future, I would see the rating I gave it, remember that I hated it, and not waste my time.

I probably wouldn't have bothered to leave a bad comment about the game, either, if you hadn't forced me to do the entire thing just to rate it. I understand not letting people rate it at the beginning, in case trolls die on purpose just to give it a low score, but I got to third or fourth period before I decided it wasn't going to get any better, which I think is enough time to give it a fa

Excellent! Tons of choices, great story, hilarious plot, very clever fight scenes. At first I thought it was kind of generic, and then I really got into it - images of high school were definitely conjured in my mind! ROFL! Annie is my favorite. I wouldn't change a thing.

The last scene was a bit of fun working through, the dialogue was quite entertaining actually. The imposement of the author's political beliefs are quite prevalent in the story, which is exhausting and a little immature. While it was written almost 20 years ago, still resonates with those of the current times.
5/10. Not the best, not the worst. Grammar definitely needs help. It was nice to play through, and a long story for sure, takes about an hour or more with a lot of trial and error.

(O_O") This game is just... Wow. It's like a dream, things that don't make sense happen, but they are supposed to make sense. One thing I can say for sure is that, this game is very, very, VERY entertaining! Can we have a sequel to this please? I would actually play something similar to this! XD
