    Mediocre, short, and not very detailed. Good atmosphere. Not impressive. The game was meant for the DS. It was obviously ported to PC, and has graphics comparable to a mobile game system, which is not very good for PC. The action gameplay is basic, the voice acting is acceptable, and the "detective" sequences are basic "click everything" with minimal actual puzzles.

I ran through in a very short period of time, then uninstalled, as it has zero replayability, and rather want the time and money back. The film-noir that it clings to is all that makes it tolerable, the game fits the word "mediocre" quite well. I've gotten more enjoyment for less money from MANY other things. Collapse

    The game itself is fun to play. The art is fun to watch, but graphically it's a mess. Game stutters from time to time like some flash game. There's no support for widescreen displays either. In general, this game feels like a worked up flash-based game.

  1. Insecticide can't decide whether it wants to be an adventure or a platformer, so it does neither particularly well.

    You can tell these people love the adventure genre enough to want to update it with action elements for the new generation. Unfortunately, the action segments of the game, while not terrible, aren't seamlessly integrated into the game which makes Insecticide feel like a mixed bag.
  3. Up to this point, it appears Insecticide is a reasonably good game unnecessarily sliced in twain.
