4.0 out of 5 stars Good mystery with lots of twists, 29 Nov 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Hotel Dusk: Room 215 (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Ever since i wanted a ds, this is THE game i wanted. I was lucky enough to find a copy and received it a few days later. As there is so many reviews out there telling the story, i won't go into it. So the graphics- some complained of muddy graphics when closing in on an item. I do agree that some of the graphics could have been better when a section of the room is shown, but overall- wow! I never thought a game could have graphics like that! In a way, i was spoilt because even now, i miss those graphics but that's another story. The music- again, fantastic. Game play- the mystery is very good but has one slight flaw. In some parts, you don't know where you are going which can be a pain as you have to knock on doors to get somewhere. However, sometimes it became quite difficult so i had to use an online walkthrough guide. Although it says 12+, i would not recommend it for a 12 year old and feel the game should have had a higher age limit due to the degree of difficulty of this game. Did it spoil my enjoyment though? No. I loved the game and the drawings of the people. Simple yet effective. The characters were real and i loved hearing their stories. Also, there are a few minigames which can be played in the bar if you need a break from all the mystery solving (but you can't access it until 9pm when the bar opens). Also, there are numbers to be found. Collect them as something good will happen. One thing recommended in this game is saving because if you don't save all the time and get thrown out, you have to begin at the beginning of the chapter, which can be annoying if near the end of one. I also liked how time didn't move until i found what i had to, which was lucky for me as i would not have done it in real time!
Overall, the game's great, but if you are unsure of whether the game will suit you, check out another code (trace memory if in america) as it is exactly the same format, so it should give you an idea of how the game works. (I also recommend this title as it has a good mystery but a little shorter than hotel dusk). This would perfectly suit someone who is looking for a different game on the ds and for those who love a challenge.
