It's an interactive mystery novel; no more, no less

Summary: Okay, not sure I quite understand why this game is getting dumped on so hard. Sure, it's no Hotel Dusk or Trace Memory, but it doesn't appear that that is even its goal. I'm an avid reader, I love murder mysteries, and I love games and puzzles. This game contains all of that. There is not as much action as one would hope, not as much gameplay as one would hope, but an affinity for reading makes up for that.
Another Game From Cing, the Developers Who Made Hotel Dusk...

Summary: I have played a number of point and click adventure games (or "graphic novels" as some prefer to call them), many of them detective/investigation themed in style (ex. Hotel Dusk, Jake Hunter, Ace Attorney series, Touch Detective, etc.), so when I saw "Again" for sale, I was instantly intrigued.
Summary: 19 years ago, the delightfully-named town of Clockford, Pennsylvania was set upon by a serial killer. No, not Scissorman - a maniac named Providence, whose victims shared no apparent connection, no demographic, not even modus operandi; nothing, save for the murderer's calling card - an Eye of Providence torn from the back of a dollar bill and left at every crime scene.
Summary: I don't understand all the negative reviews. This game is an interactive crime novel. It's about an FBI agent Jonathan Weaver who can see into the past. I love mysteries and reading so this game is perfect for me. J was cute but I found Kate to be a litte annoying. If you're stuck, you can always go back to the field office and Kate will give you a hint. Basically you're going to different places and talking to people.
Summary: I did my best when I got this game not to compare it to Hotel Dusk. I do enjoy being able to handle this in a "book" style instead of as a regular DS game style. Keeping it separate from "Hotel Dusk" I did find this game enjoyable & the added touch of the characters being in colour, etc was nice. It got a little problematic though with only being able to save at certain points.
