Greed: The Mad Scientist
If your mouse is set for a left hand user then beware!
This as others have said is different to the other type of HO games, it is a kind of a I am not able to recommend this game especially if you have your mouse settings set for a left-handed user as I have, i.e the buttons are the oppistie way round. Normally in most games the 'user settings' are honoured thus I can play the games comfortably, with the game developers in this case, over-riding any user change setting and put it to a 'default' this then for me made the game, more complex then it needed to have been, owing to the fact I had to constantly remember right is left and left is right.
Given this massive stumbling block, I couldn't really therefore get into the game. It seemed to have some good points and the VO and storyline seemed ok and the there was speech, but I kept getting hindered.
The mini-games were good and had some unique games even in the short space of time I was playing, though I did finish the hour demo I didn't get that far in the game owing to my 'mouse frustrations'.
Overall then and I know this has not been a very game-centred review, but I can't recommend the game, owing to the settings of the mouse.

Way Too Short
Game really could've been great but it was soooooo short! Due to ridicously short play, it's worth a daily deal at best.

I liked the premise, but the game wasn't as good as it could have been. By the end I was bored with the story line, and I found the girl character pretty annoying. I'm not sure that there was any 'twist' to the story either. I mean, I think we all knew how the story would go. The HOS and minigames weren't terribly challenging. Which is saying a lot from me, because normally I have to skip at least a few in most games.

The graphics are good, clear and crisp for the most part. The mini games were way to easy. The map is not interactive, though you can jump to locations using the hint button. The hint tells you exactly what to do. I thought the game should of been a lot longer, but I was glad it ended because it was just boring. If you are a beginner then I recommend this game but for others definately not. I had hope for it but it just wasn't there for me.

most boring game i have ever played.
To be honest you can play the game in under 3hrs. We all have different tastes, and this one is not mine....Make up your own mind i would suggest.
