I absolutely loved the first instalment and looked forward to this one. Sadly it did not love up to its predecessor. The story is ok with a somewhat predicable out come (I knew who the killer was about half way through). The inventory is a nightmare to use as there are only 16 squares to hold items and you have storage areas where you can leave items. Knowing which items to leave, however,is the trick. Game play is the worst I have ever had the misfortune to use. The game is so slow I was constantly shouting at the pc for Vic to move. It could take a good few minutes for Vic to get anywhere or to do anything. And as for the 'hint' system I ask you, why bother. I was stuck and tried to use the hints, 'If I need to, I will look everywhere to find more clues' was the hint. So helpful. In the end the only way I could play this game was with a walkthrough. Without it I would never have completed this game. Such a sad rendition of an excellent series.
