Like I said in my headline, this is really a good game. Nicely crisp graphics, lots of beautiful scenes, interesting story...but my god, the voice acting is atrocious. I was fairly unimpressed with the voice work through the first part of the game, as it seemed below average. Then came the ghost of that dang security guard, and I seriously had to mute the sound. Out of nowhere, there's this very young handsome guy, looks well-groomed, named Pierre of all things, voiced by what appeared to be an old redneck doing his best R. Lee Ermy impersonation! No joke. I can just imagine the game's designers' reaction after handing the game over to the voice talent department. They had to be thinking "what have they done to my character? Why is this employee of an artsy theater named Pierre talking like the crazy sergeant from Full Metal Jacket?!" Sorry, I'm getting carried away. Anyway, this obnoxious flaw aside, the game is actually very nice. Nothing too hard in the mini-game department, although one took me about 10 minutes to solve. The cut-scenes are skillfully animated and enjoyable (some only with the sound off), and I recommend it for genre fans wholeheartedly.

I loved this game! It is different from other HO games because it lasts longer and it doesn't just abruptly end. It has a great story and graphics and the puzzles are challenging. All HO lovers need to play this game!!!

Quite a lot of dialog to read ... great you can skip or just speed it up.
