A good adventure, especially if you appreciate a right amount of black humor.

The dialogues are the main strength of the game... as well as its weak point, it certainly will not be appreciated by all those with the "skip button syndrome".

If you love the adventures I recommend you to give it a chance!

P.s. Play it in Latin. Sooo cool!

Long-drawn and has bugs.
The game has potential for those that likes to sit at the computer and watch long cartoonish cinematic dialogue sequences. Dialogue sequences that in theory can be skipped easily but that in reality gives the plot information and a lot of the "game play experience"...
Game looks as it in general has a rather locked progession path that one needs to follow (as opposed to being open worlded) , it is possible to pick up (some ?) items prior to having the need to use them...
The general logic of the game seems so so - as I knew I needed "A stick" but couldn't get the guy to pick it up , then having to use "hint function" only to see him going to another place and pick up "A stick"...
In Book with goals the lower left text can not be read when too many goals are listed , depending on what you can't read this is more or less of an annoyance.
Finally , at %27 of completed game play the guy needs a certain item , game not being that logical to me - or item not shown or not available - I used hint function , the guy goes to pick something up at a place where there is shown nothing if using cursor to "scan" area . When keep using "hint function" the guy keeps going back to the area to pick up something "invisible" that is either not there or he is not able to place in inventory that got X items in it already...
Based on my experience then, at least at this point , there is no way that I will recommend this game to other people...

I found this game very well made for the ambientation an the storical and language reconstructions. The Inquisitor is really well characterized, many of the minigames are funny and well structured, in essence thig game give you what people expects from a point and click game. At times the length of the dialogues makes it slow and the price is a bit high for the lenght.
Overall though it is a really nice game, recommended!

I am a big fan of adventure games and this one really stands above others thanks to its unique dark/mysterious universe and amazing storytelling. The character of Nicolas Emerich is just awesome! The game is challenging enough but there is some help given when you are really stuck on a puzzle.
I strongly recommend to play with Latin voices, they give even more depth and immersion ! This is definitely the coolest feature!

This game is a little strange. Please remember that I have not read the book this is supposedly based on.

The voice acting is bad, overacting every second sentence.
The main character is absolutely hateful. He constantly makes you question what the F is wrong with him. Many times the dialogue seems out of place or character. For a man of the church the Eymerich seems very vulgar and angry all the time. Whether this was intended, taken from the book or just bad writing I can't say.

[Warning: slight puzzle spoiler coming now]
One scene rather disturbed me. You have to trap a squirrel. So you do, with a stone and stick. As an avid point&click gamer I could see where this was going.
Squashing the squirrel is one thing but making it twitch and look at you as it's clinging to its last seconds of life after your trap smashed down on it is just sick. I may be overreacting but heck, this is my review so live with it. Maybe this was in the book. Fine. This doesn't explain or excuse the trap scene though.
This, coming right after a scene where the squirrel is portrayed as nature's innocence personified, makes me wonder whether the writers of this game intended to make you hate Eymerich.
[Spoiler end]
And there are other instances where dialogues seem to be designed to make you despise him or overly zealous people in general.

That aside, the graphics could use a little improvement regarding the characters, the scenes themselves look nice with the exception of the kitchen wall. Though sometimes objects are so well hidden (and cursor indicator barely recognisable as changing) that you can have a hard time finding what you're looking for.
