otherwise insert the memory card and click NO. Click NO will let

====================================
14. AUTHOR'S NOTE
====================================

Since this is my first FAQ, please bear with me with the format and the grammer.

First of all, I was quite disappointed about this game. The game is quite short,
and the story is not very original. Also, the horror factor that stated on the
game is just not up to par to some other horror adventure game. (Clock Tower is
a lot better). The constant voice of Aya drove me nuts sometimes. (I switch off
the sound when I did this FAQ). The 3D generated characters are not too bad, but
what is it with their arms and hands? I guess Bandai spend too many time on the
faces. Aya do look pretty good.

There are some bugs in the game that I found out. I found out that sometimes the 
game
will say that there isn't any save game in the memory card. Also, the game 
sometimes
will say that there isn't enough room to save the game. Strange.

There are some translation of the Virus name in this FAQ that i am not sure. 
Please help.
Also, there are items that I do not know what it is for, for those of you who is 
kind
enough please correct me and email the corrections.

One such item is the spray, what it is used for? What's the name for that?

Also what is it that killed the last guy?

Also, I seems to be missing an item in the Item List. The First Item List, First 
Row,
Second Item, what is it? Is there such an item?

At the end of the game, they display that there are about 40 minutes worth of 
movies,
and that I didn't get to see all of them, anybody out there would like to 
comment
on that?

SPECIAL THANKS

Right now I would like to thanks The Rage for importing the game, and the people 
who
write the FAQ for www.gamesfaqs.com to inspire me to write this walkthrough.
