Summary

Sparkling but flawed gem.

The Good

Great visuals! Styled a little like Nine:The last Resort. Good story that was performed by Hollywood talent. Clever dialogue. Good sound and great environment. Challenging play that requires quick reflexes and a very good memory.

The Bad

Play becomes a little redundant early on. The lousy menu robot. Lots of trial and error. Primarily, the disappointment of playing a game with such great potential but less than stellar play. The payoffs are not quite as good as one would hope.

The Bottom Line

A little bit of "Clue", Some FPS action and James Woods. Fun but the boredom and frustration sets in hard before long before the game is completed.
