In this tale of gruesome murder and S & M clubs you play agent Victoria MacPherson and her grandfather Gus MacPherson. You are on the trail of a serial killer who is now on his 5th victim and you still have not had a break in the case. Your boss is getting annoyed with you and the pressure to find this guy is all on you. You do however come across a file that your grandfather Gus had stashed away for 75 years. This file has to do with one of his murder cases in Prague that is very similar to the case you now have been involved in. What is going on? Could this be a copycat? It’s up to you to unravel the clues leading to the real identity of this killer. Overall the game was very immersive, the characters you play are not annoying and you end up caring about them. Now let’s talk about the game play. It was smooth and flawless except that clicking on an exit point did not take you directly to the next area. You are stuck watching the character either walk or trot across the screen to finally get to the next screen. It was a bit annoying but I guess the gamers did this on purpose (I hope), so it would feel more like you were part of the game instead of just moving the character around. I would however have liked to have seen less of the interior of the elevator; you’ll see what I mean. Anyways, the characters on the most part were very well done. I say most part because as you will see a few characters that Gus encounters who look a bit cartoony. Pay close attention to the hands and you will see what I mean. Puzzles were on the most part easy to figure out except I did have some trouble on two that I don’t think I could have gotten past without some help. The puzzles and items you collect do not stray from the purpose of the game except that a bit confused as to what baking cookies has to do with anything. They blend in perfectly so your not sitting there going what does this have to do with that etc. The music was well done and blended in the background so well sometimes I did not even notice it. It is just there to set the mood, which it does very well. As a side note I did not find the gore/violence to be all that gruesome but maybe I’m just conditioned from all those horror movies. This game however is definitely not for anyone aged under 17. Some cut scenes are graphic and very well done; they are so well shot that you may want to watch them over again, which you can. There is an area in your menu where once you have unlocked a cut scene will store it there for your viewing pleasure.
The storyline is well thought out and it slowly unravels before your eyes. You play as two characters but the game mostly centers on Victoria. Gus (her grandfather) is a back story. The storylines however intertwine seamlessly as you will see while playing. This game is a great addition to anyone’s adventure library and must be played. The ending was a bit of a let down, but only a bit. That is not going to deter me from giving this game 8 out of 10 stars. Play it if you dare.
