This review is from: Hotel Dusk: Room 215 (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I loved this game, it plays like an interactive book and the story is fascinating. The graphics are gorgeous and are sketches with the characters pencilled in black and white, they are really nice and I suppose in keeping with the book theme of the game they are more like illustrations. The main character is an ex cop (who despite being a drawing is incredibly good looking) who now works as a travelling sales man and is looking for his ex cop partner and is staying at the hotel dusk on business, he is drawn into the lives of other guests as he solves the mystery of his partner and of the hotel. It sounds cheesy but it is a really good story and an addictive game. I would recomend saving the game regulary, especially after any lengthy dialogue as you do get game overs which tend to be unexpected and it can be irritating when you have to repeat conversations, but as long as you save often it is fine. Speaking of lengthy dialogues there are a lot in this game as as the theme of the game is as a book and would not suit anyone who does not like a lot of reading in games. But if you are someone who likes to immerse themselves in a good story then this is perfect.
