    The Next Big Thing is a prime example of what a graphic adventure should be. It's got it all: an entertaining story, great writing, creative but logical puzzles, good voice acting and music, beautiful artwork and a killer sense of humor.

    The Next Big Thing however is not half decent; it's only the best adventure game I've played in the past few years.
