One of the more popular adventure games post 2000. However I felt it lacked the charm and character of a lot of adventure titles. Instead it felt very cold and empty. Perhaps this is the feeling they were hoping to achieve. But for me it was quite a boring game, with a lacklustre story which really goes nowhere. I'm sure it'll get better with the sequel though. A lot of slow walking around, dull and sometimes silly conversations, some of which overlap as different characters talk. The visuals and art are great though. Some really creative and inspiring environments, which I suppose is why this was a well-received game.
