AGAIN

Video Game Generation

  • Summary: Don’t waste your time and money. You’ll probably have to sit through something very similar when looking for your next job (if you haven’t already), and that may be more entertaining.  Yes, the score is real.
  • Pros: None, unless you’re a teamster with the Screen Actors Guild (since they put two more crappy actors to “work” for a few hours in production of this piece of sh** - alright, go team!)
  • Cons: You’ve got to be kidding me.  You know what,, go ahead, .  Buy this game.  If you’re seriously asking me for pros and cons after reading this review, you, deserve, to waste your time and money on it.

Serial killer mystery, but may be too disturbing for teens.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that there is a good deal of violence in this mystery game. While most of the violent acts are seen through a blurry, greenish night-vision lens, the realistic motions of the live actors are still easily recognizable -- as someone being strangled, bludgeoned, or shot. The use of real, filmed actors in lieu of computer graphics makes the violence more realistic.

Again (DS) - Review

VGChartz
4 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Throughout its extensive lifespan, the Nintendo DS has time and time again rejuvenated genres that gamers have been hard-pressed to find in this modern day love affair with all things action-oriented. Long thought to be a bygone relic of the 1980s and 1990s PC era, the text/point-and-click adventure fits the bill perfectly when discussing these rejuvenated genres, and the guys over at Cing have played an enormous role in the revitalization by outputting three different...

  • Excerpt: AGAIN is the latest DS graphic adventure by Cing, who were responsible for Trace Memory and Hotel Dusk: Room 215, two of the finest graphic adventures for the DS. Due to this pedigree, I was quite excited to try out AGAIN. Then I played it. Suffice to say, that excitement turned into disappointment. As far as murder mystery DS adventures go, AGAIN is not that bad, but compared to Cing's other efforts, AGAIN is weak.

  • Excerpt: Again is one of those games that might be appreciated by a particular audience, but that audience is so small, that it's hard to see exactly how the game made it to the shelves. Don't get me wrong, it's a unique title that presents some interesting experience, but even among adventure gamers, you will be hard pressed to find someone willing to go through the massive story Again possesses.

  • Summary: You're better off reading a book than playing this flawed interactive crime novel.
  • Pros: Cool presentation and character art style
  • Cons: Crime story cliches abound, First-person stylus controls are sluggish, Unintuitive psychic puzzles, Past/present plot mix can get confusing

  • Summary: CiNG, the team behind cult hit Hotel Dusk, return with another murder mystery, but this one's an interactive crime novel better left on the shelf.
  • Pros: Sleek aesthetic evokes prime-time crime dramas, The past-present crime-solving mechanic is fun when it works intuitively
  • Cons: Crime-solving usually feels clunky, dull, and unnecessarily convoluted, Dialogue and plot are bland, "Book-style" DS experience is far better executed elsewhere
