UPDATE: I've gotten this link from Meridian4 support teamhttp://support.anuman.net/necronomicon
there is a save file you can download that fixes the "brief case" bug at the last part of the game where you cannot access your alchemy kit.
that said, a great portion of my review below is still relevant!.
I have never written a review before. Thats how strongly I feel about this. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FINISH IT.
It would be a great game if
1. You could actually finish it.
2. the cut scenes that are important to the plot acutally worked
3. there were meaningful clues to what you need to do next.
4. YOU COULD ACTUALLY FINISH IT!
You know what you should do? Buy a game called Darkness Within: Pursuit of Loath Nolder (and theres a part 2 as well)
those 2 games are exactly what you expect from a Lovecraft point and click adventure. THIS GAME IS A RIP-OFF.
Whats that? You've seen videos on youtube that look decent? Well, thats because those videos are showing you the half-way decent Playstation version of the game.
I am a veteran of the horror point/click genre. I enjoy solving obscure puzzles and thinking about the game for hours and hours.. i had to use UHS walkthrough and eventually youtube videos just to get to the part of the game where... uh.. you CAN'T FINISH IT.
So don't waste your money. Its a pity b/c there is a real potential here, if you could acutally finish the game, and the cutscenes were put back in it would be "ok".
I hope this helps.
