Summary: Didn't enjoy as much as Hotel Dusk, which is one of my favorite games. Better gameplay, better puzzles, but the mystery is rather convoluted and does not draw you in as much as Hotel Dusk. Characters, while not flat, are uninteresting and not paticularly enjoyable. If you liked Hotel Dusk for its large and complex story, its wonderful characters and interaction, this game will probably fall a little flat with you. However, still glad I bought it and experienced it.
Summary: This is no where near as good as the first hotel dusk. The characters are a lot weaker which makes the story only slightly hard to get into if you compare them to the lovable and dynamic characters of the first game. It is however regardless a pretty good game. It's smart, and Kyle Hyde is one of the most likable main characters in a video game I've come across.
Excerpt: Age rating - 12+ Can be bought new or used for £10+ at ebay.co.uk I really enjoyed the first game in this series, Hotel Dusk, because of its interesting style of storytelling and the puzzles, so I was extremely happy to discover the sequel to this, Last Window, as a gift for my birthday. I simply raced through this and thoroughly enjoyed it, though it will have a niche audience.
Pros: Great storyline, interesting puzzles, good soundtrack and graphics .
Cons: Not enough puzzles, some things left unexplained in the plot .
Mystery, intrigue, clunky gameplay and wooden dialogue

Summary: I played Hotel Dusk a few years ago, and although I don't remember it that well, it was an enjoyable experience. So when I spotted The Last Window at a decent price, I snapped it up. I'm a fan of point-and-click games and the dialogue-heavy adventure genre, so I'm more than familiar with the format. Let's start with the good: The Last Window has a decent plot to keep you hooked at the chapters pass by.
Summary: I enjoyed Hotel Dusk and was really enjoying this game until I came upon a puzzle I just could not solve namely the music box puzzle in chapter 9. After trying for two whole evenings I resorted to a "walk through" the method of solving the puzzle is impossible for someone like myself - a mature lady with arthritic hands.
Summary: Si on aime le style du premier (hotel dusk), on aimera le 2e. Je n'ai pas encore fini ce dernier mais j'ai l'impression qu'il ya encore plus de dialogues. L'ambiance est la même et on retrouve des perso du 1er. L'enquête est intéressante car elle concerne également le héros et on en appred plus sur son père notamment. L'utilisation des objets trouvés en fait un jeu toujours plus attractif.
Summary: On prend (presque) les mêmes, et on recommence ! On retrouve notre cher Kyle Hyde dans un huis-clos qui ressemble étrangement à notre ancien Hotel Dusk : mêmes graphismes caractéristiques du jeu (et tant mieux !), même musique d'ascenseur (un peu d'originalité n'aurait pas été de refus :/ ), même genre de personnages (gérant dure à cuire, rigolo de service, petite chose fragile, agent double...)...
