  • Summary: After all these years I finally bought this game and forced myself to play through. Generally I'm a fan of point&click adventures, but can't say I enjoyed this one much. The puzzles were not very interesting and the pace was slow.

  • Summary: The premise is lame. She didn't kill the man, but wants to interfere with the crime scene which is illegal. I know that perhaps I take it too seriously but to start the game on such lame premise coupled with the voice of the lead character which absolutely doesn't suit her.

  • Summary: This is a decent point and click adventure--made me feel like I was part of a Johnny Quest cartoon. The story is an engaging history lesson in 14th century Templar Knights and the voice acting is well done.

Not as good as expected

SCW, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: With all the 5 & 4 stars ratings, I thought this would be as good as Prof Layton or even close to it. But no - there are too few puzzles and navigation around the game is not smooth or easy. The graphics is good though & humorous exchanges but in terms of the actual game, it is very disappointing.

Don't buy for director's cut content

  • Summary: I loved this game and completed it many years ago on the PC and I was excited to get the "Director's cut" version on the DS. The new parts of the game are mainly at the beginning and are a back story regarding Nico and her father.

It's...an okay game.

  • Summary: I'm a 13 year old girl, and when my dad got this game for me i wasn't sure if it would be my thing. But a few days in I was addicted! It starts off when a journalist (Niko Collard) finds a famous man dead in his house, and a mysterious french mime creeping out the window.

DS game

  • Summary: Have been playing this game for about a week now. Am not sure whether I am pleased with it or not. There seems to be a lot of story but not too many puzzles unlike other games of this type.

It's good, but not as good as I'd hoped

S. Phillips "Sharon", amazon.co.uk
11 November 2009
  • Summary: Played this in it's entirety now, and have come to the following conclusion: Game play time is pretty good for a point & click, as you will probably spend 11-12 hours on this, BUT, a large majority of it is not puzzling, it's wandering about the same places speaking to the same people to figure out...
