  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Excellent visuals and voice acting really draw you into this film-like adventure experience known as Still Life.
  4. 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]
  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.

    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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Anyone who loves a mystery and has an investigative mind will get many hours of pleasure from Still Life.
  11. 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.
  12. Despite the fact that you play an FBI agent, you never use a weapon. Still Life is an adventure, through and through.
