3 Games for the 'price' of one (I am a funpass user so don't pay for individual games). The storylines are excellent and well thought out, the characters interweave logically and the stories are interesting (almost like playing a novel :)) What I will say though is to be careful on the first and to some extent on the second as you only have 5 hints per investigation and you don't really know how long each investigation is thus you can't gauge when and how to use them. In the 3rd game they rolled over meaning that this was easy to finish as during the earlier investigations you didn't need as many but by the end you could (like I did end up with an accumulation of around 20). There was therefore no 'happy medium'. I got stuck on the first game and didn't complete it as I had run out of hints and when I started again I got stuck again (different place but still stuck) and don't really have any inclination to start a third time. The second game I did finish as even though I had to start again, the hints and length of investigation in my opinion was slightly more lenient and as such I just about managed to muddle through. The third game as I have said earlier because of the way the 'hints' role over was kinda easy to finish. The only other thing I will say with regards to this is that the HO scenes on the first two are just random items (as is the case with most games of this genre), where as the 3rd game there was a logic to the objects. Overall I would recommend this (especially if you are a funpass user) as the storylines are excellent and the mini-games/puzzles are also different and very challenging.
