Last Window: The Secret of Cape West Review

14 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Last Window is something of a bittersweet release for me. On the one hand, it's the long-awaited sequel to Cing's classic Hotel Dusk - which means the return of goateed detective Kyle Hyde, of the gorgeous hand-sketched art style, and of odd puzzles that find you messing about with doorstops, plastic rulers, and other curiously useful household objects.

  • Summary: Overall, Last Window won't suit everyone's style. It's a lot slower than similar games on the DS, and one that requires time and patience to get through and this isn't helped by the text-heavy nature of the game. However, for those who can appreciate graphic adventure games, it makes notable improvements over its predecessor resulting in a rewarding experience that will keep you occupied for many hours.

Last Window: The Secret of Cape West

Ready Up

  • Summary: A wonderful sequel sure to match the critical acclaim of its predecessor, also likely to be overlooked by many in the same way. The immersive story, rounded characters and lovely art style are incredibly pleasing and create a thoughtful game with substance, perfect to play as the long winter nights approach.
