A lot of things are very good in this game : story, atmosphere, FMV sucking you in like a movie, humor, characters, etc, all of these would make for a great game.
But I was very disappointed in the puzzles : the off-game ones (special screens) are very easy and are nothing new, and the in-game ones (inventory things) are not hard either. Actually, the only times I found myself stuck were because I missed something just laying on the floor somewhere, wihtout any other indication. This is 3d “pixel hunting”, and that’s the worst annoyment an adventure game can provide. So you begin to thoroughly search every place you get in and that’s no fun.
Too bad, it had everything to draw you in, and it does for a few hours, before the gaming itself becomes boring and draws you out.
