  1. There's just not enough imagination, invention, and engagement with the source material to entice me back. If you think the game plot sounds interesting then you're really far better off reading the book or getting hold of the superb 1945 movie.
  2. Text can't be skipped, which may be fine for a dramatic piece of dialogue, but is eminently frustrating when you're having to wait for your character to lengthily tell you that you can't do something for the umpteenthmillionth time.

    A great murder mystery with an appalling ending, this game frustrates you till you look on YouTube to find the answers to the puzzles. A mysterious adventure, but no tea and crumpets found here.

    Can't understand the negative reviews either. Just don't review games that you have no intrest in, and give them just some random bad scores. The general hate by casual FPS-reviewers for turn-based, slow adventure and all a bit out of the general games seems so hilarious. "I just don't like this game, because casual gamer may not like it so I don't like it either". I could review any good FPS-game and say its stupid because you have to kill so many people/monsters and just walk (run most of the times) one-way tube all the time. Wake up and play something else than just your GoW and CoD4 ("Woa!! Nice graphics and guns! More guns! No more of those stupid puzzles, give more action!"). Full Review »

    Very embarrassing for a detective game, mystery fans will be disgusted.
