One of the best games I've ever played.,
This review is from: Hotel Dusk: Room 215 (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I love this game. It was the first game I got on the Nintendo DS back in 2007 and I've not played a game as good as it since. I got it whilst on Honeymoon - my new husband was ill in bed, we were in the middle of nowhere and it was chucking it down with rain constantly, and I still had a brilliant time because of this game (and the Star Wars boxset on DVD).
It's beautifully animated, I love the A-Ha "Take On Me"esque pencil drawn characters superimposed on painted backgrounds. The puzzles are just tricky enough that they might take a few goes but not send you trawling the internet looking for walkthroughs, and as everyone has said, the characterisation and plot are spot on. You actually find yourself thinking how everything might tie together whilst playing, like you would whilst watching a film.
Highly recommended. I hope the sequel lives up to the original.
