Summary: I bought this game, and yes its fun, and the story is good. (yea, ther is a but a coming), BUT...it is WAY too easy. I started it lastnite, and played a few hours and I finished it tonight. the ending is abrupt and offers no satisfaction. If you are a beginner at games you will love it, but a mystery game lover who has been around a little while...way too easy. BUT...it is worth the money I spent, I just wish it would have offered me more.
Summary: Slow moving third person adventure with interminable, meaningless, disconnected dialog. Not to mention, you have to click on extra things that have little to do with the game and listen to Sylvie's boring comments about them. You can left-click through the dialogs to make them go a little faster, but I never figured out how to skip through her monologs. The graphics were stunning and the music was beautiful, if you could hear it through all the talking.
Summary: unless you like games that you can beat in 1 day, without your brain ever getting warm, i would pass...the graphics are good ..the cut scenes are dull and short, nothing to go ooh and ahhh about...the music is louder than the dialoge ....the whole game consists of 4 locations...the puzzles are a joke... the game looks like art of murder..but shorter..easier puzzles..same old silly story of my uncle is missing and i must find this artifact thingy ... boring..
