Summary: I finished this game with the help of a walk thru because several puzzles I could not see how to solve. I have played adventure games since Myst and 7th Guest and really enjoy a good one. This game is a good one and provides hours of fun.
Summary: The game was awesome! i wish they make more. This was such a fun and challenging game. I do admit i used the walkthrough at certain points but its ok! i wish they will come out with some more! right now i am playing the Art of Murder collection so i am going to see if i like it. But so far this game and the others in the series are my favorites!
Summary: If you like these types of games then Still Life gives you a great story with some pretty fun gameplay. It can occasionally get frustrating, but all adventure games do at some point. Really good game!
It is a little better than you have been led to believe

Summary: I'm not one for gore or S&M, and this game contains both - and nudity. Female, of course. (I don't want to get into that argument) The story is interesting. I had a lot more fun (if that's the word) playing as Victoria's grandfather Gus in 1920's Prague. I especially enjoyed his "encounter" with the head of the Prague Police. Dirtbag. Victoria is "rich little girl, cop" in present day Chicago. Well, FBI, actually. She is less entertaining than Gus, but just as macho.
Summary: My dad gave me this game after he had played it. It's very challenging, and I loved the story line right from the start. The voice acting is a little strange at times, but overall it's a good script. The only thing that bothers me is a few of the challenges/activities within the game can't be solved by logic, or information found at the scene. The one I can think of in particularly is picking a lock.
Fantastic adventure game, too bad about the ending...

Summary: I really, really enjoyed this game. If you like adventure games and detective games, you should enjoy the gameplay here. This was one of the best 2D point-and-click adventure games I'd played in a long time, and I would have given it 5 stars except for one thing: The Ending. The ending of this game is abrupt and does not resolve the plot. It's very frustrating, especially as I was so involved in the mystery and the characters.
Summary: We loved this game. Although everyone should be warned that it was intended to be the middle of a 3 part game, but the 3rd installment will never be finished. As such, the game just sort of stops rather than ending leaving you with an unsatisfied taste in your mouth. The graphics are exceptional as is the voice acting and script. We personally felt that these qualities were so good that they overcame the fairly linear puzzles.
Summary: I love adventure RPGs, and this one did not fail to please. I must say, however, that even a strong story line does not overcome the boredom of watching a character amble slowly from one location to another or take long elevator rides. As with many ARPGs, this game involves a *lot* of gathering info at one location then having to navigate back to another and so on, and so on, and so on.

Summary: Victoria McPherson is not someone you'd want on your tail. She seems undaunted in her objective: to hunt down and put away one very sick, twisted serial killer. She's cute, witty and not afraid to confront her tyrannical boss both in attitude and a good dose of profanity.....not sure what it was about her that reminded me of my youngest sister...... Well, we need someone like her, because this killer is a sicko of mammoth proportions.
Great graphics, easy storyline & stupid puzzles...

Summary: If you are looking for a great mystery game this is not it. However if you are looking for a game with great graphics, a so/so mystery & vexing puzzles than you'll love it. Storyline: The puzzles can be difficult but generally are just boring/frustrating. The mystery plot starts out interesting but is WAY too easy. The game tells you where to go (ie I need to talk to so & so). The Prague storyline is far more engaging than the modern day Chicago one.
