Highly underrated, knocking games like Hotel Dusk into the shadows.
So what did I find so good about it? Well, to be frank, it's actually brilliant knocking other games of the same genre into the shadows. Hotel Dusk for instance was more like reading a book than playing a game and I felt compelled to play it to the end because I'd paid £25 for it. This game I played for sheer joy. It was challenging in such a way that suddenly you'd think "oh, hang on a minute I saw one of those earlier" or "I bet I know what I need for this and I bet I know where to find it". It was truly a mystery with the pieces slotting together bit by bit and I have thoroughly enjoyed playing it.
Now to the criticism. Well the background music is dire. Before you do anything else, mute the music, unless of course you want to listen to a funeral dirge for the next ten hours or so. Other than that you do occasionally have to be a little insistent that you want to put that cog there or whatever but I can forgive it that, the game having entertained me so well. So yes, do buy and do enjoy!
