i read the reviews and thought...it could not be that bad. I am from Metairie,across the canal from where the story takes place in New Orleans.People said it was slow but the story line was good.I agree about the storyline but the game was not slow,it lagged.I just wish they had the real voices instead of me having to read it myself because the accents in New Orleans are amazing.I love to play games about us but this game was cut short. I would love to see more games from here and more games with actors voices,not me having to read the story it takes away from it all. Hopefully they will make it better next game.I still liked it though. They did have junk piles for the hos,but if you were here for Katrina,that is what the houses looked like and worse.Props to the people who came up with the idea,but next time please put a little more thought into what you are doing!

Game Kept Helping Me
Boy, I don't know. This game is absolutely beautiful, but it kept helping me! STOP!
Game seemed kinda slow, too.

not clear on objectives
Just not wowed by this game. No hints even in the on-going play because the objectives aren't clear. Would never buy or recommend this game.

Not Worth the Trial
Finished the trial in 45 minutes, and even that was generous. Very slow-moving game with virtually no challenge.

No challenge to the gamer at all. Game is structured in a way that you cannot discover any clues until you are allowed to. Graphics are great, but that's all.

Boring. Didn't need all the "grandaughter's" drivel and transitions too long even when you skipped the cut scene. I didn't even make it to the end of the demo before I hit the little red x.

This game leads you to believe there is a fallen shadows II. Is there? It was OK. A bit slow

Boring and Slow
Story begins in New Orleans, 2006, after Hurricane Kathrina.
Then return for a few days before ...
It promised a good game, but it's boring and slow.
Along the way, you find very easy mini games and HOS (even in adventure mode).
The big problem is that you can not freely explore the locations. You may only have just one thing after another ... For example, you can not leave the room before you have clicked on everything! Sometimes you can not know what to do, and has only hint in the HOS.
No choice: or find what they want ... or you get stuck!

NOT A GOOD GAME!
This game started out with a great intro, but quickly went downhill. The HO scenes were junkpiles, and not clearly drawn. Objects were not well-described and scenes were dark. Only the top-half of characters were shown, and not all puzzles had clear instructions. The game started out with a great story-line, but was very poorly developed, it could have been a great game.
