    Great Storyline

    This game is a must have for fans of mystery. I like the fact that you hold the DS sideways like a book. Graphics were good I like how they look like drawings but the in game graphics were pretty low. The controls mostly... Read Full Review

    It could have been so much better...

    It is sad how this game wasted all it's potential. The story, the twists and the characters are impressive, but the games lacks everything else. The gameplay got some problems. For the most part you're just using menus ... Read Full Review
