I really enjoyed "A Woman in White," so I was looking forward to this game. At first, I thought it was terrific - the story line was clear, the scenes were well drawn, and the video clips were good. But then it became irritating that there were no hints outside of the HO scenes. And the map didn't always mark areas where actions were left to complete, nor could you click on the map to go to a location. Then the comments uttered by various characters printed at the bottom of the screen started going by in half a second--literally. It was impossible to complete reading them before they were gone. There was no reason to put a "beastie" in the game, and going to the island where the beastie lived addded nothing. Past that point I couldn't figure out what to do and resorted to a walkthrough. Turns out there were supposed to be two more video clips, one at the station and one at the lab for the final scenes. I had neither of these, so I have no idea what the ending was or if it even made sense. So my impression of the game began on a high note and slipped downward rapidly the further into the game I progressed. Worth buying? Maybe just. But certainly disappointing.
