First of all I'm not a person who normally enjoys point and click adventures as I find them rather slow developing and cumbersome story wise and this game is by no means any different. Also I agree with those who highlight that there are a string of nasty game crashes which most people will get to experience especially in the Paris/catacomb region. While there is an inbuilt crash reporter in game, one would wonder if this actually works since those crashes have been existent since the games release back in 2010. So how does one report a bug if the bug is actually the bug reporter? Any ideas? Email the developer you say. Good idea! One problem though, the German Developer known as 'House of Tales' doesn't seem to exist anymore, at least there is no easy to find web site to contact him on. Hence the answer so far is to simply save game constantly and reload after crash and work through the matter that way.

The game is a simple point and click adventure dressed up to look like a movie rip off like 'Entrapment' with a cheeky wink here and there to the James Bond Franchise especially to its evil character lore’s. You play various parts of a trio group who have vowed to make the world a better place by stealing expensive works of art from the rich and then give the proceeds to charity by selling them on the black market, earning this trio a Robin Hood image.

While the game eventually explores this notion more in depth exposing the blaring weakness behind the group’s logic, it also explores a whole range of loose end stories. For one thing the members of your group may have independent hidden motives that you are not aware of, the estranged relationship between a member of your group called Cathryn and her father may have more to it than what she is admitting and finally the paranoia and the sickness of a comrade who paints illegal copies for you, may have more foundation in truth than make-believe.

You also spasmodically get to witness and be involved in the investigation of international police who is investigating a bizarre string of deaths regarding political figures and how there seems to be a nonsensical art stealing connection behind it all.

The game after treating your eyes to a sexy animation at the beginning quickly falls flat thanks to a slow informative development which at the time really seems to be going nowhere. You really don't get too appreciate that ALL things in this game are relevant till the very end when the villain invites you back into his lair so that he can tell you about his entire diabolical plot. While this comically reminds us of Albert Broccoli’s James Bond formula, they really do a decent job of this in game and it really does make sense for once why the villain would invite you in and why the villain would want to tell you everything. In fact maybe Albert Broccoli could take out a pen and paper and make a note here and there for upcoming Bond movies.

However unlike Bond movies the down side is that the concluding animation is nowhere near as sexy as what the game begins with and with the constant build up to a final big explosion, it eventually falls flat with a small fizzle display which wouldn't even raise an eyebrow to Michael Bay.

So why do I wave an Olympic sized thumbs up in the faces of angered customers and glaringly bad design choices?

Well for one thing I really appreciate how they tie in all the loose ends at the end. It’s an idea they chose to follow which I haven't seen in any other form of media. You see the person the trio is working for is a genocidal maniac whose belief system is expressed in a secret room in his mansion which I can only describe as 'messed up'. It’s the uniqueness of the story itself and the way it is presented that I have a deep respect for. It didn't just feel like I was playing a cheaply made rip off. There was just more to it than that. In fact his back story was so real that I had to do a quick google search after playing this game to see if Elengi of Surinawa was in fact a real person or not. He isn't, but you can easily see how he could have been.

Secondly while the beginning is seriously missing a musical score to get you in the mood, when it does eventually cut in, it really does make you feel that you’re a part of the heist. Accompanied with this is the fact that the voice dubbing was pretty flawless in my books. I could easily envision the characters being that way and saying the things they did. Granted the stereotypes were frustrating especially with Mike. In fact I have never seen a more annoying game character in game than this one. His constant guffawing’s of his own greatness was enough for me to wish that the other two would pick him up by the ankles and use his head as a toilet brush. He is seriously more annoying than Jar Jar Binks in Star wars. Mike the most annoying and out of character in any medium I have ever seen, would probably be more in character and give George Lucas a wet dream if he was to appear in an Alien pub covered in fur. It’s just something you have to experience to BELIEVE. However on the flip side Mike does have one of the best lines in the game. It's the very last line he does with the villain. Classic!

While they spend 5 days to steal one painting and 10 days to steal another, the title '15 days' has a double meaning as revealed at the end and kind of leaves the story open to an upcoming sequel. If they do make a sequel and I hope they do, I really hope that they finish that one off with a sexier animation than what they begin the game with. Something that would make Manga people fall to the floor and do obeisance too. Also if you hint to an explosion in the end, don't give me a fizzle. I want a BANG. I want a Kaboom which would rupture my ear drums and wake up Godzilla at the same time and finally any chance you can kill Mike? How about we call the sequel '15 days to die'? Mike gets sick and Cathryn's forced to get that baseball bat with barbwire out of the closet.

In final a really unique story idea which nicely ties up all loose ends at the conclusion. A game which at several parts both grabs a gamers interest and loses it just as quickly. A game which has one of the most annoying game characters I have ever witnessed now placed on my hit list. A game with its current crashing issues is simply not worth the price they are asking, but is worth at least a gander when it does go on sale and if you’re a point and click enthusiast.

Below is me playing the game through the slow part when you finally meet up with your Nigerian Scammer wannabe. It should be enough of an example for you to work out if this is a game for you.... Thanks for Reading.

Very nice adventure game from 2010, but it is quite different from current flagships of genre like Deponia, Syberia and even The New Beginning. Its strong part is story dynamic - it flows continously. Actions which are required for progression are grouped in small sets of locations to minimize the frustration of pixelhunting. Actually, I haven't noticed any major 'how-to-progress' gameplay stalling.

1)Graphics is quite pleasing even for 2010
2)Continous story progression due to smart areas segmentation(it behaves more like interactive movie than brainbreaker)
3)Story is quite positive with its own dark twists(If you played The New Beginning you may notice similar character motives and EVEN GAMEPLAY ELEMENTS in puzzles)
4)Puzzles are grotesque, but simple enough to take just enough time to be fun instead of PITA
5)The Cop Character is powered by mild metagaming. It is hard to explain. You need to play the game to get the idea. Maybe it was intentional to give player that 'cop intuition' feel xD
6)Able to create tension and suspence without ugly timers on screen and 'game over' messages. Just the wild ways of the story and you.
1)Crashbugs! Tonns of it. Save often, but nothing gamebreaking.
2)Characters are stereotypes. Actually it helps the story, but some people don't like when it is that way.
3)Game beginning is a bit chaotic and has no backstory except on need-to-know basis
4)A bit hardcore: it doesn't have 'journals' or task indicators, but it is mostly straightforward
5)One ending. But, you know, movies have only one ending too ;)

Highly recommended. I love it.

It's not a bad adventure game. It's not a good game either, more of a "meh" experience, but it doesn't entirely deserve the negative rating here.

- Interesting story.
- Decent graphics.
- Very good voice acting.
- Great movement controls - you can walk, run, fast travel between rooms and teleport on the map.
- Skippable cutscenes and dialogues!

- During the 9 hours of my playtime the game crashed 15+ time. That's a lot. It's even worse that the game doesn't have autosave so you have to save a lot. Thankfully, all cutscenes can be skipped so you can quickly catch up from an older save. Also, one cutscene at the end of the game crashes every single time. After many tries I had to skip the cutscene and watch it on YouTube.
- The game has no journal and the protagonists give you no clues on what you are supposed to do next. So if you don't remember everything everyone said you will be lost all the time. This is especially bad if your playthrough is split between several days.
- Bad audio balance in dialogues. Often the background noise was so loud I couldn't hear the dialogue. Thankfully the game has subtitles.
- Bad minigames. Fortunately skippable.

I can't beleive this game has so many negative reviews. To be fair, I agree with the following flaws: The game crashes, a lot. I was a bit worried I wasn't going to make it through to the end becuase sometimes it would crash in the same spot, but I did. Just keep re-loading till it works and save often. The other major flaw is that there really aren't very many puzzles at all. Mostly you click on things and the story progresses (this was minor for me though, cuz I wanted something easy).

On the plus side I found the story interesting, and kept wanting to come back to it. Sure it has some plotholes and a few too many coincidences, but overall not bad. This is the 2nd time that House of Tales has entertained me. Overall I'd say give it a play, its a few hours of fun.

The game was alright, not really outstanding but it still was an interesting concept and I've enjoyed playing it. Unfortunately the game is very prone to crash. So be sure to save a lot. Usually after restarting the game it then didn't crash at the point it did before, but one part I really couldn't get past a scene without crashing, so I was forced to watch the scene on YouTube and just cancel the scene that caused me to crash by hitting escape which allowed me to continue.

- Graphics are not too bad
- The story was OK
- Running and shortcuts with double click

- Most of the puzzles are easy but sometimes annoying . For example if you have to search the web for a name but don't remember it (there is no journal)

- Lip sync is horrible or not existent
- I didnt't like the control
- Wooden character animation
- Game chrashes sometimes (for me first time after two minutes of playing)

Got the game in a bundle but would definitely not buy it for 9,99 €

I normlly enjoy adventure games, and like to try an solve the puzzles - I dont normally write negativ ereviews but thought I should warn you off.I finally completed this 'game', whch is really more of an interactive movie. The game crashes frequently and it was a bit of an endurance test to get through it - the graphics are dated, and the story doesnt really grip you. Puzzles are more a trial and error than logical - and some of the use a with b, and move the mouse pointer till you find the hotspot on the screen, sorry not really good - even for a 2009 game. Save yourself some money, and try something else.

All in all it was simply boring - almost no interaction possible, no choices to make. Just find the one thing you can klick and bingo! The story is lame, save your time and play something else!

Hey Catheryn, it's dad. I got your number from the internet image board known as 4chen.gov. Sorry, Ii'll keep this short. I heard that you were in a game based in the UK (to authenticate this, there were Fish n Chipz trucks left and right as well as bad weather sometimes). I would ask that you refrain from participating in such games from this point forward. Our family name has been dragged through the mud on many occassions and I wouldn't want it to happen again. Please stay away from Africans. Even though they say they'll give you money (2 million nigerian dillars), they are more than likely scamming you. Also, how are you? Spot's dead, cancer. Lost him just recently. How have you been? It's dad, don't be mad. I know we've had our differences that I won't go into for absolutely no reason, but I really think you should give me a call. I won't leave my number. Spot's dead, cancer.

While I have your attention, I recently constructed my own game from the ground up known as Project RPG. I would appreciate it if you could spend a cool, crisp, hard-earned 3.99 dollar bill, and get off your fat ♥♥♥ and purchase it (I know you're fat, because all gamers are. This is what the local news has taught me). Spot's dead, cancer.

Have a great day and please buy my game. The children are starving and I can't afford the rent.

Spot's dead, cancer.
