Jul 2, 2012Honestly, it's difficult to find any redeeming quality about this "game" whatsoever. I picked it up recently as I'm a big fan of the series and it was in a bargain bin. I thought it'd be good for a laugh and, even if it were bad, It'd be fun to laugh at. Unfortunately, it's not "so bad it's good" - it's simply bad. Annoying, actually. The puzzles are... urgh.... they're just insultingly dumb. You have an array of doctor tools, and you simply pick one up and press them against where you see an exclamation mark, and you continue to do that until you unlock an absolutely terrible cut scene (still images, no CG movies) and then you rinse and repeat. They had the source material to come up with a really challenging medical mystery game and utterly bombed it by making it so easy that you're average five year old could point and click their way through this two hour long at best snorefest.
The dialogue is notably unfunny. It tries to capture the Hugh Laurie wit but with no success whatsoever.
I could go on and on but there's really no point. I can't recommend this title as a game; I can only recommend it for the real fanatic who has to collect everything and anything to do with House. It gets a 3/10 solely because the games imagery is decent; it has no other redeeming quality. Save yourself a bit of money and just download screenshots of the game.… Expand
