Summary: What. The. Hell?? Starts off OK, looks decent and seems to be setting itself up to be an interesting mystery, the only complaint being weird pacing where you often need to go talk to everyone for no purpose other than to trigger the next chapter...but then 4 hours in the game just ends out of nowhere with a ridiculous ending that had no connection to the events prior. Crazy. Story aside, the graphics were good and the controls were generally solid.
Summary: Dead Mountaineer's Hotel is a point and click game. At this point I would normally attempt to explain what the game is all about, but alas, after having put hours into it I still do not have a clue. The protagonist is going on vacation at this mountain top hotel. He meets the owner and the other guests and in that process hears of a mountaineer who fell to his death years previously.
Summary: Underrated. Sure the story is horrible and abruptly ends right when it is actually just getting started. Basically, the scene is set (in like 5-8 hours), the initial mystery happens and not much more the 5 minutes of gameplay latter and in one conversation the story is told and concluded (even before the solution of the mystery has been hinted at). So the story is ridiculous and horrible but it contains some unique and interesting features.
Summary: Don't let the screen shots deceive you into buying this game, they look great. But the game is let down by awful forced voice acting with weird......... pauses, and horrendous out of place music. Monkey Island it ain't!
Summary: This game is a disgrace to computer gaming! Do NOT buy this game. Period. I am in no mood explaining all the flaws. There are just too many. I stopped playing this game after an hour of annoyance. I regret not having checked metacritics before buying...
