There are far more plusses than minuses in this game. It's a fairly standard HOG/puzzle game in its gameplay. The graphics are excellent throughout, the music rather over the top, and I had to turn it down after a few minutes, but that didn't bother me too much. The storyline was pretty good, but there were some elements in it that I found a little disturbing, and I certainly wouldn't recommend this game for children. It has a very adult theme and some of the scenes would probably upset younger kids. I really didn't like the ending at all and it did seem rather rushed at the end. I will say that the mini games and puzzles all fitted in extremely well with the storline and were, in fact intergral, and furthered the plot in every case, which made a nice change. Some of them were very tricky to do and there was no skip button on a couple of them, which made them quite challenging. It was reasonably easy to fathom out what you had to do if you used the hint button as a guide to where you ought to go, and most of the puzzles did have a skip button. The hint button didn't empty when you used it to guide you through the scenes, which was a big plus and only emptied when you used it to find an object or used it to help solve a puzzle. I didn't have to use the walkthrough at all using the hint button to tell me where I should go next. There was a bit too much walking backwards and forwards, but it wasn't so bad that it became annoying. It was a bit short, but still worth buying. All in all a very playable game. I just wish the end had been more satisfying.
