Good Premise, mediocre execution. Having not played a point-and-click since Titanic, over 14 years ago, I thought I'd try this as the WW2 spy theme seemed interesting. Sadly, it proved nearly unplayable. Someone experienced with this sort of game may do fine, but I struggled to figure out what I was supposed to do and eventually gave up. You have to do so many boring tasks to get something simple done, as if they tried to prevent the game from being to short, instead of making a better longer game. Example (MINOR SPOILERS): struggle to set up spy camera with correct lens (no instructions given), tripod too low for view out of window (seriously?), go back to office and search for taller tripod, try camera again only to find steam from leaky pipe in nearby building blocking view, find someone to fix pipe...take photo...develop photo (no instructions given), give photos to your boss who does not accept them because you apparently had to take more photos (this was never made clear). The game is full of this, tedious and not enough guidance or help. The voice acting is very mediocre (why get sleepy americans to do german voices?). There were also some problems with screen resolution and loading crashes. All in all a pity, as this game clearly had some potential, with great and historically authentic looking visuals. If you like the subject material and have a lot of experience with these sorts of games, you may like it, otherwise, give this a miss as there are probably much better point-and-click games out there.

This is a good ww2-theemed point and click adventure game. You play an SS officer who is trying to kill Hitler. You go talk to german characters and try to find those that want to kill him and use your authority (and inventory) to carry out your goal of killing him. The visuals are really good and it has ok animations and music. The voice acting is Russian-level bad. A certain secretary namde Victoria is probably the worst voice actress in the history of gaming. I wanted to stab my ears..... Anyway I still like the game and am looking forward for part 2. 8/10

A nice classic styled adventure game. A few unintuitive things were needed to progress though, had to resort to walkthroughs.

Almost walked out of the house in full Gestapo uniform with shaving cream still on my face! 10/10!

But seriously, the artwork in this game is beautiful, and attention to detail is very well thought out! However, gameplay itself is a little on the slow side (I haven't finished the game yet as of this review, I will update if anything changes).

I think it would help the player to know a little German history from the WWII era, the narration goes into a lot of detail about specific personalities from that time.

Overall, I would recommend this game to anyone who likes adventure/quest games.
