A gorgeous-looking game with a story that's definitely a cut above most: plausible, mature, TV show quality, great voice-acting. More an adventure game in traditional style, except it offers only a few logic-driven or inventory puzzles. Instead, most puzzles are search & find ho's / 10 of 'x' or spot the differences. Puzzles are relevant to story & skippable. Some are quite tricky, e.g., a put-the-stairs-back-together one. Screen resolution options are fantastic; you can get top displays here! No 3-D character animation, though. Game's main weakness is that objects are often tiny, so while it's a fun challenge finding 1/2 to 3/4 of them, the last pieces can be a headache, especially as hints recharge slowly & no way to collect more. As an adventure-game lover I enjoyed its cinematic & engaging story but needed to refer to walkthrough a few times due to tiny items. Definitely well worth the $ but hoping future games in series will have more of traditional-style adventure puzzles.
