Summary: This is a truly amazing game. I love the graphics and as the story progresses and becomes more convoluted, the characters really grow on you! I did have trouble figuring out where to go or what to do next and relied on a walk-through to get through most of the game (I am no mystery buff).
My first foray into the point n' click adventure game genre!

Summary: I've heard this unique game described in several different ways, including "interactive novel", "point-and-click adventure", and "text-based adventure". I think I'd classify it as a point-and-click adventure, just because much of the gameplay involves tapping on things with the DS's stylus.
Summary: I recently purchased this and so far I've enjoyed the game. The graphics make you feel like you are reading a comic book-type mystery. The characters are interesting and the plot is good. The only drawback is some of the long, drawn out conversations with guests and staff in the hotel.
Summary: I really enjoyed this game for it's storyline and the style of gameplay. I'm not going to spend a ridiculous amount of time discussing all of the good and bad points (the other reviews do just fine with that) but there was definitely more good than bad for me.
Summary: Hey. I like games, and I like books. Can't say I'm a big fan of games that are interactive mystery novels... but it's not too shabby of a genre for the DS. This is my first DS game and it's a nice choice for getting acquainted to how the DS works. The game is decent so far.
Summary: Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is a unique game for the Nintendo DS that presents itself as an interactive graphic novel. Cast as disgraced police officer Kyle Hyde, you find yourself in a hotel with a shady past and where every visitor has a secret.
Summary: I'm surprised Hotel Dusk: Room 217 or Hotel Dusk: Room 111 hasn't been released yet. The ending of this game left so many unresolved mysteries, I felt a little let down after 15+ hours of game play. On the other hand, I did (mostly) enjoy those 15+ hours, so the game gets four stars.
Summary: I am just getting started with this one but can say that from first impressions this looks like a great game. I was pleasantly surprised with the graphics on this one, hand-drawn and pretty colors. the story seems to be solid as well and the gameplay handles well.
Summary: After reading the reviews I couldn't wait to get this game and I wasn't disappointed. The storyline is interesting enough to keep you playing far longer than you should. Gameplay requires that you hold the DS as you would a book and it is quite a comfortable way to play.
Summary: This is a good game if you don't mind reading a lot. I really enjoyed it but was a little disapointed at the end because of how the story developed, I think it left me with many questions unanswered, I am not sure if there is going to be a sequel but I hope there is.
