+ modern point and click adventure game, with nice presentation and incredible soundrack
+ fantastic writing, great dialogues and good voice acting, very deep , dark at times mystery story about neurobiology and the possibilities of the brain as well as magic
+ likable protagonist, great npcs, dr.styler a very well thought character with dark secrets
+ classic point and click gameplay, with the interesting addition of magic, where you have to play a sort of mini game when using magic according to each cirmstance, you have to read the manual (ingame manual) and experiment a lot in this department, it can become frustrating at times, but also very satisfying when you figure out how to use it
+ excellent score system where you track your progress in each chapter
- a bit stiff animations
+/- pressing space reveals all hotspots in a scene, they could skip that since it ruins the exploration, some casual players might find it very usefull though, since the game can become difficult at times
have played it retail and finished it once, now i repeat it on steam, it's imo one of the greatest modern adventure games and i recommend it to all adventure gamers on steam.
