Summary

An Ok FMV adventure game.

The Good

One of the nice things about this game is the character interaction. You have dialogue trees and inventory swaping that seems logical and contributes to the story. The puzzles are somewhat logical and fit in the story. The story is a fairly good murder mystery with a SciFi setting. Some of the of the acting is fairly good.

The Bad

The graphics were tiny and bland. All gameplay occurs in a frame roughly 1/4 the size of the monitor. The FMV sequences were somewhat washed out because of their green-screen projection on game backgrounds. Lots of back and forth work just to make progress. Lack of configuration options. Lots of disc swapping makes the game almost unplayable.

The Bottom Line

Ok if you play the DVD rom version. Not so ok if you play the cd-rom version.
