    The level of storytelling once it makes it past the more clunky moments makes the whole experience worthwhile. The conclusion itself made me forgive the game for all the awkward moments that came before it. And, after playing through all five chapters in quick succession, I can guarantee that that is the best way to appreciate the overall narrative.

    The only downside is that you pretty much have to play the other games in the serie to fully understand what's going on... but it's not a big flaw, since the others are pretty good games too (and they're pretty cheap on GOG.com).
    Every point-and-click adventure lover should play this.

It is also the longest chapter of the entire series, if I have to say, finishing it in about 6-7 hours (the others are shorter, with 4 hours tops if you replay them for the achievements).

    What really must be addressed about this game is, if you haven't played the first games, you "might" be confused for some parts or some scenes, since it's heavily tied up with the other games. In addition this game is definitely more expensive than the previous chapters (I paid 15 euros) and I don't recall the other games to be all that expensive at launch (although now you can buy the first 4 games in a bundle, which is a must if you want to enjoy the games fully). Aside that, the graphics are similar, if not the same, of the fourth chapter, which was kinda weaker than the third but much more fluid in movement. Voice acting is still pretty good, and puzzles are not hard but still challenging that you have to think up, since you can control two characters and they work differently.

    And the ending is definitely something to see...and kinda unexpected, I won't spoil though, but It was rather bitter sweet.

    Best chapter so far, and a great ending: must try if you have the previous ones, give it a look if you're curious...but make sure to get the other chapters as well, if you plan to fully enjoy the entire series.

    I've played through the entire series and eagerly awaited this final installment. I enjoyed every moment. There were the usual frustrationsI've played through the entire series and eagerly awaited this final installment. I enjoyed every moment. There were the usual frustrations inherent in the adventure point and click genre, the sometimes slow and tedious running about and all that. But none of that detracted from my enjoyment of the story and ambient music.

    Definitely a recommend for anybody who loves a good noir ghost story.
