Won my affections despite some serious flaws. Let me start with what is bad about this game. First, the story wanders all over the place and about 1/2 half of it could have been cut without any serious damage to the plot. Further, while there is a villian in the game he gets no character development. Second, the game relies on too many puzzles that are tedious--there is a place in the game where a written confession is needed and there are ten steps required to make the confession from producing the ink to getting a writing insturment. It takes a certain degree of patience to make it through Captain Morgane. My own strategy was when I found the game boring I started looking at a walkthrough until the game seemed to pick up speed.
So what is good about the game? First, although the story wanders it does feature some nice plot twists. There is a genuine sense of adventure and of the unexpected. Second, the game flashes some moments of genuine humor. I won't spoil all of them but I'll mention one snarky bit, "She had the type of face that lauched a 1000 ships. That's why it looked so battered." ZING. There is even a Star Trek reference. Third, some of the characters one meets in the game are well-defined. The heroine of the game--Captain Morgane--is well-crafted as well as some of the minor characters. Finally, the game is nice to look at.
Overall, I found playing this game fun. True it doesn't rival Broken Sword or The Longest Journey but it's still is an above average adventure game. It took me about nine hours to finish and I don't regret the time spent.
