  • Summary: In Still Life, you play the role of Victoria McPherson, a young FBI agent who's investigating a serial murder case. Set in modern Chicago and late-1920s Prague, the game lets you investigate the crime scenes of gruesome serial homicides. With the body count now at five, you must solve puzzles, interact with characters, and gather clues to stop the killer from striking again. You'll soon find that, oddly enough, Victoria's present case resembles the one from the past, right down to the killer's MO. Expand

  1. Anyone who loves a mystery and has an investigative mind will get many hours of pleasure from Still Life.
  2. Still Life is generally enjoyable, with good quality puzzles and an excellent atmosphere. Still Life doesn't venture far from the typical adventure formula but for what it is, the game is commendable.
  3. Excellent visuals and voice acting really draw you into this film-like adventure experience known as Still Life.
  4. For the hardcore gamer, there should be enough here to keep their interest through until the ending.
  5. 70
    As usual, this type of game controls better on a PC and character movement feels slow and clunky with the Xbox controller.
  6. With too much backtracking between locations..., short play time, and a frustratingly inconclusive ending (closure be damned), Still Life limits its appeal to the already converted. [June 2005, p.81]
  7. Yes, the story is intriguing and wanting to know what happens next will drive most players to battle through the gameplay tedium, but the experience the plot delivers is in no way exceptional and certainly nothing that couldn't be surpassed by the rental of a decent DVD.
