    Overall, the misnamed Hamlet can be a fun little game, but it's not quite perfect. Fans of Mystery Mania will probably most enjoy this lighthearted and lightweight adventure, although hardcore point-and-click lovers may find themselves mildly frustrated by the overall ease of the game and mildly inelegant puzzle construction.

    Almost as conflicted as Hamlet himself, this is both an amusingly whimsical graphic adventure and a frustrating, needlessly obscure chore.

    Don't look to Hamlet to fulfill your needs for an educational game. This just isn't the game you're looking for. But, for those of us always jonesing for a new point-and-click adventure, Hamlet fits the bill nicely.

    One of the oddest games you'll ever come across, Hamlet replicates the adventure gaming formula of yesteryear with obtuse puzzles that makes for a annoyingly difficult gameplay.

    Hamlet won't knock the socks off of point and click adventure fans, but it'll give you the head-scratchers you came for.

    Grab the lite version to get a taste of Hamlet's quirky style; conquering this adventure puzzler is no easy challenge, but worth it for the smile or two you get out of it.

    Hamlet isn't my favorite point-and-click adventure ever, but it's quirky and certainly worth a look.
