This is a really absorbing adventure game with a good storyline, brilliant animation, great voice acting and lavish backgrounds. At certain points through the game your character, Brian Basco, interupts the proceedings and you see him in what looks like a director's chair, telling you a bit more of the story. This is a nice touch. The only downside to the game is the pixel-hunting, however this seems to have been rectified in the sequel. Most mainstream PC games magazines didn't even bother covering this game. If they had, you'd have invariably read "nice attempt but it's no Monkey Island". Ignore the nay sayers, the adventure game is far from dead, it's just suffering from mass prejudice against it. If you want a relaxing game playing experience with a satisfying conclusion, go for this title.
