I wanted to recommend this game, I really did. The gameplay and plot are both excellent.
However, I had to install it on my Windows XP laptop since the game refused to run on my Windows 7 build, and I am not the only one with a "crash when choosing start" problem.
However, once I got the game running on XP, I thought it was smooth sailing.
There is a gamebreaking bug about halfway in the game with a puzzle involving the kitchen menu. I had to switch to German language to get past this sequence after losing all my progress. The bug locks you out of saving, loading, or doing anything but quitting via Task Manager.
There is another bug that causes an engine crash if you combine two certain items in your inventory together when you reach the church.
There are a few instances where dialog is missing for the English version but not the German.
However, the worst sin is the fact the THE ENDING CREDITS AND PLOT SUMMERY ARE MISSING FOR THE ENGLISH VERSION IF YOU TAKE THE DOCTOR PATH.
They are perfectly fine in German.
This game WAS NOT PROPERLY TESTED FOR THE ENGLISH PORT.
I have waited months for a reply from their tech support... no answer.
