The world is fantastic, it is very credible and creates a quite realistic atmosphere.
Now the characters...OH MY GOD...the characters...are horrible.
Phoenix Wallace is such a stuck up little pompous goody-two-shoes it makes me sick! She is a peace officer that meets her girlfriend to talk about classified information about an on-going murder case? WOOT?! I am very sorry but I cannot identify with this Britney Spears of peace officers. If I cannot relate to the character...I cannot play the game. Well at least not in an enjoyable fashion. Oh and speaking of fashion.
There is a quest that will have you buy the perfect dress and shoes to go clubbing! WOW this is indeed an important twist to our murder mystery. I could have never solved it in the old boots!
All in all this game has some features of a classic adventure game, but the dialogs and some of the quests really bring it down to a, dare I say it, chick-flick kind of game.
