Summary: Yes, really beautiful scenes and a fun main character, and it's great they even gave her a shadow. However, Sylvie walks a little ... too ... slowly, and making her run involved many double-clicks. The ending is abrupt and sorely lacks a sense of resolution, so just enjoy the ride.
Summary: I’m afraid I have to agree with most of the negative reviews. Granted the locations were beautiful and I lingered often to take them in. The interface was easy to use and the voice acting was pretty good. But from there it was all downhill. The confusing story was not very compelling, considering the dire consequences of failure. I also felt there was too much filler. There was a lot of back & forth for little reward, similar to the ploy used in HOGs.
Summary: This game went really fast. Not much to do and was a bit confusing as to what Sylvie could take with her, etc. I liked the beginning and it seemed to go nicely, but way too much far away interaction with characters and yap, yap, yap. I HATED the ending...what a let down as it only gave a basic ending to the plot, but no real endings to the subplots with regard to the characters she came in contact with.
Summary: simple, accessible aux débutants en jeu d'aventures, mais qui ne satisfera pas les plus exigeants. Durée de vie trop courte, énigmens quasimment inexistantes, scénario léger et fin bâclée. Tout juste pour passer quelques momments en attendant nettement mieux.
