A game review from a woman’s point of view: 4/5

DEVELOPER :

SPACE MONKEY INTERNATIONAL


STORYLINE:  5/5

Very good plot which will keep you interested until the very end. The story gets better and better as new evidence emerges. You also get to take pictures and examine items in a lab.

CUTSCENES: 5/5

Impeccable! Absolutely perfect.

VOICE OVERS: 5/5

There are real actors doing a great job in this game.

MUSIC: 5/5

Outstanding! A real orchestra has been used and it’s a pleasure to listen to it as every chapter has its own particular soundtrack.

SFX (Sound Effect) : 5/5

It’s the attention to every single detail which makes this game absolutely worth playing.

ARTISTIC ILLUSTRATION: 5/5

Excellent job. You can really see  when there are great artists involved in the process of making a game.

MINI GAMES (PUZZLES) : 4/5

There is an interesting progression of difficulty of the puzzles as you play but what impressed me the most was the use of original puzzles instead of the usual boring ones. However, half way through the game I found a couple of puzzles whose instructions were impossible to grasp and the mini games too complicated to work out what to do by myself. This is the only reason why they get a 4 instead of a 5. Please improve your instructions.

HIDDEN OBJECT: 2/5

Unfortunately the ho (hidden object) scenes are very boring. Though they did not put many in the game, the few that are there disrupt the immersion of the game. The ho scenes are very old fashioned with really annoying morphing objects here and there to disturb your eyesight.

Playability: 5/5

Easy to use, intuitive and easy to understand.
