I'm not much of a gamer and find a lot of them boring but I really enjoyed this. I do think it helps if you enjoy reading, as this is a very wordy game, and being a fan of film noir and old detective novels would probably help too!
As others have said, this isn't one for those who just want lots of action but if you enjoy a good story and atmospheric settings then you won't go far wrong with Hotel Dusk. I really liked the look of the game and the ease of navigation within it. Although some of the puzzles are very easy they are mixed in with enough thought-provoking, head-scratching ones that it doesn't lose your interest and the writing, at its best, is worthy of any good mystery novel.
I really hope there's a sequel, it's certainly worth it!
