While the game can't (and in many ways doesn't try to) match the classic film for suspense and drama, it offers involvement and agency that draws you into the lives of the people you watch. The seven stories and the crime unfold in real-time, which add pressure to proceedings.
Moment to moment you choose who to watch, use the controller to text and interact with characters. You can replay missed stories.

12+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. It's also important to ensure children understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up. You need some maturity to follow what is happening as well as interpret the narrative as it unfolds.
