The Agency of Anomalies: The Last Performance
Having played the first two installments in this series, I'd hoped for a better storyline. The game graphics excellent and really creepy. I especially like the looming crow-faced statues.
But the inconsistencies in the storyline distracted from the game play.
I guessed early on Gerard, the decrepit "personal secretary" was actually Patrizia, the missing theater owner; but did I miss the explanation for how she became he? Since all the other characters seemed to be from a well-stocked sideshow, was Patrizia/Gerard a half-man/half-woman act? All of the hints/clues referring to "The Seekers" suggest that Gerard contacted them and was responsible for all of the experimentation, this suggests Patrizia/Gerard already existed prior to being experimented on. So how did that work? And what about the others, did they known Patrizia was Gerard and vice versa?
I recommend this game, but only if you aren't the type who worries over the plot making sense or the characters motivation.

Some interest features
poor graphics, but interest variations of hidden object scenes and fun minigames. music and sfx are not annoying. Many of typical and usual interacts and items, dont like that. but puzzles are cool!

Completely expected... And I mean 'completely' expected.
By what I mean in the title, the game left me somewhat at a loss of what to say. There were certainly good things, but also a few bad, so I'll list them.
Pros: Loved the scenery and the music was a bit repetitive, but still the music was nice.
Cons: Most HOGs seemed relatively easy, though still fun.
Pros: The unique cast of characters was a nice surprise to see.
Cons: Sometimes you could get a tool and carry it for thirty minutes before actually needing it.
Pros: At first the story seemed completely new-
There it is! There's the issue I had with the game right there. I'm sure you noticed the 'at first'. That's because at first the game did seem new, seem like a change, and then it became a little... Predictable. Maybe it was because it was much like cinderstone orphanage. It wasn't hard to figure out who the antagonist was either. It was bluntly obvious! There wasn't many moments that made you enticed and it seemed that the storyline held the interest of your average spam mail. I waited for a pick me up; the story stayed strong on its course, but never changed and by the end I felt a bit cheated...
However, other than story, the quality was good and the HOGs were relatively fun. Even though the storyline seemed exactly like a reprint of cinderstone orphanage. Still, good game, just not my thing.

Not as good as Cinderstone Orphanage
Bit disappointed on this one. IMO the orphanage was better. Game was too slow paced for me. Not sure if it's the game or cos we've had lots of great games lately. I played for 30mins to see if it might get better- nah! It was painfully boring I can't even finish the demo. Not for me but give it a go.

the graphics were good and sound quality was also ok
but the story was dull
it failed to interest me, i got bored after playing the game for 15 minutes. I was expecting more from the game but it was a huge disappointment !!!!
