This is a crime solver game. It plays directly from the hard disk after installation from the cd-rom.
The unique feature is the amount of detail available from the video presentation. Basically, you play as a rookie detective examining crime scenes to uncover evidence. Your experienced partner gives occasional verbal tips. Evidence is collected in the form of pictures, taken by yourself within the game. The pictures are processed in several ways, as befits their subject matter, i.e. DNA, trace materials, fingerprints etc...
I had previously downloaded Episode 0 from the developer's website and enjoyed playing that game. Because I have only a dial-up connection, the issue of this cd-rom was a big attraction. I do recommend trying the free episode before purchasing this game. It gives the flavour and mechanics of the purchased game. The free episode is also on the cd-rom.
The graphics are acceptable, the story is good and holds interest...
I thought this game was very difficult to follow. The graphics were too busy and difficult to follow. Would not recommend.
This is by far one of teh best hidden object/mystery games I have played. I recommend this game to anyone who likes solving mysteries with excellent graphics. A fun game to get into.
