In this game, the player takes control of Jack Orlando, a once famous private investigator, who started to drink too much, ruining his career. One night, while he stumbles from the bar to his home, he accidentally gets involved in a murder case. He's knocked unconscious and arrested by the police the other day. As the inspector is his friend, he's given 48 hours to solve the case...

Jack Orlando: A Cinematic Adventure is a classical graphical adventure game, similar to those created by LucasArts and Sierra. In this point-and-click adventure the player moves the protagonist figure through a (mostly hand-painted) world, talking to many other persons and advancing in the storyline by solving many different puzzles.

The game's graphics consist of hand-painted backdrops with cartoon-like character models. All of the dialogue is played as voice-over as well as displayed as text and uses Dolby Surround techniques. The music was composed by Harold Faltermeyer.

Great game!!

The Good
This game has beautiful graphics, and all drawn by hand. The music is more than perfect. This game will let you play for hours. In the game you play Jack Orlande, a detective in the 1930's. The prohibition is just over and jack is out of work. On one night he walks home (very drunk) he see that somebody get killed. The polce thinks that Jack is the criminal so he, he come with the idea to solve this murder. He got 48 hours to do it. The game takes you to different point in the city and it is just a point and click game. you can talk to many people to get some clue's.

The Bad
Sometimes it is to difficult to find out where you must go next. And there to many useless object in the game.

The Bottom Line
To be short this is a great game to play. It isn't so funny as Sam and max, but it has cool graphics a great story and very good music.
