Summary

A Good Game, but Doesn't Live Up to its Potential

The Good

The game set a great scene, the actors who supplied the voices were superb, the music, was also good. The interface was quite easy to use, and the 3-D rendering was quite good as well. The initial plot was well set, and for the most part, keeps ones interest.

The Bad

First, I don't know if it was just me, but I got a headache and rather dizzy from this game, not from the rather obtuse puzzles, but the way the scenes switched prevented me from playing this game for more than 30 min. at a time. Even so, I managed to finish this game rather quickly. There were some frustrating gameplay issues, for example, to enter the attic, which you have a key for, you have to find another object, wholly unrelated to the task at hand to trigger your entrance.

The Bottom Line

In the game Loch Ness you play Alan P. Cameron, A Private Detective who is summoned back to his ancestral homeland of Scotland, by a family friend who wants him to investigate some 'strange goings-on.' The game is interesting, however short, and sometimes frustrating. All things considered, I would say that it is worth playing, but my advice is not to spend more than 20,00$US on it, it's just not that remarkable.
