ERS is the guilty one... could've been a great game. This review is based on a complete playthrough. ERS is a top studio that has proven they can put out some first rate games. They didn't with this one. THE GOOD: The visuals were top-notch. ERS delivered like they always do in that department. Sound was nice for a while but got very repetitive. The idea of "picking the ending" sounds good on paper, but it didn't play out well - it had absolutely zero impact on game play: you just get to pick which of two closing cutscenes you watch before the credits roll. Map was interactive, diary kept track of all the information you found. THE BAD: The game was disjointed. You had this plot going on with the Red Masque, and then you had all these puzzles to solve. Unfortunately, for the most part one seemed to have very little to do with the other. A lot of what you did made no sense even in a game. One of the worst uses of a loaded gun I've seen, being stymied in your quest for justice by a bullfrog, and the whole 'animal' thing just left me shaking my head. The 'scales of justice' was a nice visual, but again served no real mechanical purpose, which made them a confusing element of the ending. THE UGLY: HOS repeated - one back to back [15 of this, then 15 of that]. Things impossible to spot (no click penalty at least). BOTTOM LINE: If I could describe this game in one word it would be "boring". You'll decide for yourself very early in the game who you want to be 'guilty', and then the game just goes on and on and on... Neither of the two 'culprits' is presented in any sympathetic way - both are killers, why can we only arrest one? It's a very old concept, but every hero needs a tragic flaw and every villian needs a redeeming quality. Neither had those here. March 23, 2014
Save your money! Choose another game, better ones out there This is my second time writing this review, game fish must not have liked my disappointment in the game. Either way I wrote a long review last time and will not repeat again. Just save your money the game has a lot of glitches in the game play and puzzles. I would save my money for another game to come out that will have tied up the story line better than this game did. Pass on this one you won't regret it! June 18, 2013
