This is an excellent game in most respects. The colors are a bit muted, but the graphics are quite clear. The HO scenes are moderately difficult; enough so that the hint button got quite a bit of use. The hint recharges very quickly, which is a nice change. I have never seen the point of making a player wait 3 minutes or 5 minutes just to get a hint. There are a lot of puzzles ranging from almost ridiculously easy to somewhat difficult. The directions are not very clear, but you can skip any one you want. I got bogged down in India for a while before I realized I had to go to another destination before I could finish. That wasn't clear at all. I wasted at least half an hour trying to figure out what I was missing before I realized I could actually go to another destination. The voice-over wasn't bad; you could believe this was a young man with little experience. The story itself was quite unique and engrossing. The ending certainly set us up for a follow-up story, and I hope there is one. A very good game, suitable for ages 12+.
