Summary

The Scoop is one of my favorite games

The Good

There was a lot of things I liked about The Scoop.It was fun,it was challening,it was quite long and it had an excellent storyline.The graphics are quite good for the time and the writing of the games dialogue is very good.I like the aspect of time in the game,as everything you do has to be done at a a certain time.Although the story might get confusing with so many characters,you eventually get back on track and catch that killer.

The Bad

The main thing I didn't like was the fact that you have to restart the game a lot before you can finidh it.You might need to go back and search somewhere,and if you miss that chance and didn't save it before,you're in trouble.This can get tedious after awhile,but it's a minor fault.

The Bottom Line

The Scoop is a great mystery game that will keep you guessing until the end.One of the best adventure games you can get.
