I can recommend this game to adventure beginners or fans of cinematic adventures.
I really can't recommend this game to people who look for brain training, for challenging puzzles, Sherlock Holmes like deduction cascades or similar things.
Playtime for me was around 10 hours including replaying two passages for the achievements. The first episode was the longest of all three. In short, I would point out the following:
+ Youth friendly language, action scenes, graphic style.
+ Soundtrack. It really caught my attention. After finishing the game you're able to listen to all tracks.
+ Scenery and artwork, very pretty and many details, including reflections of persons in glass/mirrors.
+ Gameplay, easy controls, a story related switch of characters midstory.
+ Voice acting, also lip synchro was okay.
+ Story and twists.
- Graphic glitches. A lot of them. Always. Including that you sometimes can't tell where the exit from the screen is, or that the character just refuses to go there.
- The difficulty of the whole game was way too easy. Even the hidden achievements could be obtained easily without even knowing and the hint function is totally unnessecary.
- The lack of proper puzzles. There were, not lying, three or four puzzles in the game. The rest was item-combining and dialogue option-selecting.
- The slow movement... Good for the cinematic aspect, annoying if your character went somewhere in his glitchy mood where you didn't send them.
Over all: 5/10... there was just too much that could've been done better for a more exciting and investigative experience.
In my personal opinion not worth the original 30€, but if you want, then try and catch it when it's on sale.
