Stars - 40

Carol brings her A-Game


Good:
*Great musical score: it really enhances the mood of the environments you visit.
*Fun puzzles, all of them quite logical but the famous “remedy” look-behind-you corners can make you overlook some items (i love it!).
*History of Sweden, real life locations and persons of course.
*Pretty decent ending.
*Carol Reed has some fun dialogue options this time, to piss off “Bigge”^^. Also the remedy akward conversations are present!:)

Bad:
* Time-scripted events can be really frustrating. You have to look at a door before you can use an item.
* Not really linear, it can be good and bad but because of the time scripted events it can get annoying.
* Story starts of well but ends in the typical (remedy)rushed pin-it-on-that unknown villain.


Great game, i give it four stars.
