Welcome to the Fairview Highschool Game. Just as in everyday, you need to make important decisions to survive. This game is an accurate representation of day-to-day life in Fairview High School.

Good luck on your journey.

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.

Some parts of this game were clever. Some of them were kind of crap. I played through the game mostly to try and comment, and partly because once I start something, I have to finish it. Play this game if there's really nothing else interesting you can do. It's not terrible, but it's not good.

Not since Goosebumps have I LOVED dying every second. That's not sarcasm, either. This made it hilarious, fun, and simultaneously dreadful to try again at surviving FHS. Incredible job.

I really enjoyed it! I kept dying though, and the deaths made me laugh out loud. They were totally random and gruesome. Thanks!

The boss battle at the end is okay at best
