  1. Anyone who loves a mystery and has an investigative mind will get many hours of pleasure from Still Life.
  2. While the game might be a bit simple for some, veteran gamers will still enjoy the deep story contained within Still Life.

    Even the most gruesome crime scenes have a haunting beauty about them...it's almost a strange intertwining of reality and the surreal. [June 2005, p.50]
  4. 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.
  5. This murder-detective mystery from the Adventure Company is every bit as gruesome as it is enjoyable, and it certainly had us all engrossed until its eventual conclusion.
  6. From the dazzling introductory sequence, right the way through to the cliff hanger ending, there's not a single section of gameplay that feels it hasn't been smothered with love.
  7. Excellent visuals and voice acting really draw you into this film-like adventure experience known as Still Life.

    An excellent adventure title that most will feel more confomfortable with on a PC. However, priced at ten dollars cheaper, the Xbox version isn't bad at all.
  9. Still Life includes a gripping gruesome story, challenging gameplay, and to top things off, it's only twenty dollars. It may not have the longest single-player campaign, but it has a darn good one.
  10. Still Life might not be perfect or innovative but it does justice to the classic crime-solving adventure genre and will keep you hooked to the very end.
  11. It definitely needed more puzzles and a fresh take on the gameplay. The bottom line is this: if you like adventure games, you should enjoy Still Life, but it will definitely not change the mind of the masses.
  12. Despite the fact that you play an FBI agent, you never use a weapon. Still Life is an adventure, through and through.

    Jeu d'aventure "standard", c'est-à-dire qui respecte le cahier des charges du cancre vidéoludique. Si les graphismes sont tout juste corrects,Jeu d'aventure "standard", c'est-à-dire qui respecte le cahier des charges du cancre vidéoludique. Si les graphismes sont tout juste corrects, l'interface se révèle perfectible pour ne pas dire lourdingue le plus souvent ; la VF est néanmoins satisfaisante et la musique d'ascenseur est fort sympathique.

    Comme de coutume dans ce genre de jeu mal fait, entre les énigmes qui passent pour des bugs et les bugs qui ressemblent à des énigmes (à l'insu de l'incompétence notoire du développeur stagiaire) on ne sait plus où donner de la tête pour colmater les brèches de cette épave qui prend l'eau de toutes parts.

    En outre, le pseudo-jeu présenté ici est français, ce qui n'est pas pour nous rassurer mais plutôt pour nous conforter dans ce que nous en pensions dès le départ : un échec qui n'a d'égal que sa veule prétention de novice plagieur de série américaine de bas niveau.

    I couldn't take the tedious puzzles. I really wanted to like this game though.
