I’m sure I’ll be in a minority of one here, but I really enjoyed this game!

Don’t misunderstand me, there is loads wrong with it, from one of the most annoying/confusing dialogue systems I have ever encountered to some frankly ridiculous puzzles and situations but I think the main character (Brent Halloran?) was great, funny and really refreshingly different from so many other protagonists.

I know some people went a little bit crazy about the “Steal from a tramp” puzzle but personally, in the spirit of the game, I found it perfectly fine and funny! Overall the mix of the ridiculous and the serious/horror type elements won me over. Definitely time for a replay methinks.

Good choice Kuru!

Not a total minority!

I’ve had my copy sitting by for some time for a replay (only Gog/AS sales have stopped me from loading it). The tramp puzzle was only annoying because it was for coppers for a phone call and therefore came across as very contrived. And it was Brent Halligan.
One thing I had forgotten was that the game was over 3 CDs (just looked) so it’s probably a longer game than I remember.

What do you think has aged worse? FMV or 90s 3D?
