Summary: I like the suspense and all the different things you can do. You meet different people and have several different angles. I don't like all the reading, but I guess that's how it is when you have a game like this. Overall great game.
Summary: The Nintendo DS continues to impress me with software that is not only portable but also innovative. This game is one for people who love mysteries and solving them. The game uses clever and unique graphics to tell the story and reminds me of reading a mystery novel only I get to control the main character. Hotel Dusk is definitely a rare and great title to have in anyone's DS collection and hopefully there will be more games like this coming in the near future.
Summary: When I first played this game, I felt like I was more than playing. Instead I believed I was reading a novel. And a pretty great one. Love to see how the whole action of the game is set inside the Hotel. For each chapter which concerns a certain time period, you have to deal with the residents of the hotel and uncover both their mysteries and secrets.
Summary: Right off, I'm just going tell you that if you don't own this game, you are missing out. You play as Kyle Hyde, an ex-cop with a troubled past, where he is sent to Hotel Dusk by his employer, where he begins to uncover secrets of his past. The story is amazing, and plays out just like a detective novel. The graphics aren't even graphics, and I'm saying that as a compliment. The graphics look like a flip book animation, and fit the game perfectly.
Pros: Amazing visuals, Engaging story, Innovative concepts, Just plain fun
Summary: The game was like a gritty crime noir novel, which was fantastic. The gameplay could be a bit slow at times, but the animation and level of dialogue more than made up for it. Highly enjoyable for mystery lovers, and fans of crime syndicate conspiracies.
Summary: Absolutely loved the game, so very interesting! The story was enticing and I loved all the characters and learning their individual stories. It was a relaxing sort of a game, too. I beat it twice and loved it each time. It's like an interactive novel. I've wanted this game since 2007 and was not disappointed one bit. It makes me want to buy the sequel that is coming out this year!
Summary: I loved this game. The other reviewers are right that there is a lot of reading, but I love reading, so maybe that's why it didn't bother me. Playing Hotel Dusk was like being able to interact with a mystery novel. I very much liked the artwork, it was like that of a graphic novel. This game is one-of-a-kind, and I have yet to find one like it, but I am always looking.
