While this game is packed with clues, this game will test the keenest puzzle solver. Think Professor Layton puzzle solving, immersed within a great and rich film noir-esque story... and make sure you look out for extra clues in your game packaging manual...

I have been waiting for this game for a few years and think Cing has once again done a great job. The graphics are fantastic as in hotel dusk, intuitive game play and plenty of puzzles which allow you to discover the mystery. If you liked the first one this is definately a must have.

I have another code for the DS and the second part of the wii version which I also recommend.

I'm looking forward to seeing more games from this company as I haven't found one that I don't like yet.

I have been desperate to play this game since it came out as i love Hotel Dusk and have played it over and over, but i resisted from buying it and i put it on my Christmas list instead and my sister thankfully bought me it. I just completed it today. I absolutely love it! Definately worth the wait and also kept my mind off stressful things going on in my life at the moment.

I love Kyle Hyde, probably the most handsome character ever. As soon as i started this game and entered Cape West i knew it was going to be amazing, i couldnt wait to meet all the new characters and they dont dissapoint. As i was going through it, there were points where i nearly went online for a walkthrough but i resisted and was determined to complete this one without help, but near the end i failed and had to get a little help, but it was hard!

The story is brilliant. And one of the coolest things is getting to play Billiards, i dont know why but it's quite addictive. Now i've finished the game, it has been added to the menu and every time i choose to play it, i'm playing against a different character each time. These games have a way of making you wish there was a place like Cape West/Hotel Dusk in real life. I cant really say anymore than other reviewers have already but it's so amazing, i hope they make another one because i cant get enough. If anyone has ever played Titanic, Adventure Out of Time on the PC, that is a similar style game and i really wish the makers of these games could convert that to DS because they would do an amazing job, and that is also an amazing game, just too old to play on modern PC's now.

Well firstly if you've already played Hotel Dusk: Room 215, Last Window is basically the sequel. I wouldn't say it's better, or even worse, it's just another story where you solve puzzled, question residents in the apartment building, and discover each of their secrets and mysteries.
You play Kyle Hyde, an ex detective who must solve the mysteries of the apartment building he's residing in. You meet other residents, each with their own suspicious quirks, you gather items to help solve puzzles, whether it's how to reach a certain object or examine photographs and letters.
The only bad points about this game is that it can sometimes be 'Game Over' for the most ridiculous reasons, a lot more often than the first game, but it's no worries because you can just retry and start from when you were before. Also, because I've already managed to finish this game makes me wish the makers could have made it last a bit longer, but it's still better than most games on the Nintendo DS.

To Summarise
+ Challenging mystery game where you skulk round an apartment building finding missing objects and solving puzzles, as well as uncovering the dark secrets of Hotel Cape West
+ Brilliant background music and Film Noir style animation
+ Around a dozen characters to interact with and interrogate, each with a unique personality
+ It's fun!

- You get 'Game Overs' for silly reasons. Not all the time though
- I wish it was longer, but only because it was so good

A top game for anyone who likes solving puzzles or general mystery games. A bit like the monkey island series but without the goofy humour. If you haven't played Hotel Dusk before either I seriously recommend that also. And if anyone else knows any other good mystery games for DS or PC, please let me know. Thanks!

I played Hotel Dusk a few years ago, and although I don't remember it that well, it was an enjoyable experience. So when I spotted The Last Window at a decent price, I snapped it up. I'm a fan of point-and-click games and the dialogue-heavy adventure genre, so I'm more than familiar with the format.

Let's start with the good: The Last Window has a decent plot to keep you hooked at the chapters pass by. It's one of those stories where peripheral characters get drawn into the mystery at each turn, and every question answered throws up more.

However, that's about it. The exploration aspect is dated, and the mixture of plan view on the touchscreen and 3D view on the other is disorientating. You're essentially clunking around the map to find areas where the "examine" button lights up, in the hope you might find a clue. I don't remember this being so annoying with Hotel Dusk. Maybe it's just that time has passed, but this aspect hasn't improved?

While the plot is excellent, the delivery method is not. The Last Window is VERY linear, to the extent that characters will only appear if its their turn to contribute to the story. You'll never encounter one just hanging around, unless that's part of the next plot advance. Maybe that's for the best, as the dialogue is by far the most disappointing and infuriating aspect of the game. Your hero, Kyle Hyde, is not easy to play as. He's not an unlikeable protagonist, but it's difficult to understand any of his reactions to the other characters. He'll respond to a calm statement with anger or aggression, or to a gesture of friendship with coldness and sarcasm. That's not just his character, as the others do it too. The dialogue doesn't flow well, and it's impossible to judge a character's emotions as they just seem 'off'.
