Review by David Welbourn

I'm not sure quite what to say about this one, except that I spent all my time in the prologue and next to none as the second (and presumably main) PC. Somehow, I managed to examine every object except one critical door (c'mon, who examines a door without especial prompting?) and thus I managed to get caught by the police rather often. Heck, even when I hid in the wardrobe, the police spotted me escaping from the premises.

My impression in general? I guess the game was mostly working out okay, from what I saw of it, but it didn't really grab me. Kinda lacklustre.

Rating: 5.
