3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but it's no Hotel Dusk April 11, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Since this appears to be shaping up as the first review of this game on Amazon, I should state my biases up front. Let me be clear that I am coming at this game from the perspective of someone who really enjoyed "Hotel Dusk: Room 215" and was essentially hoping for more of the same from this game (which is by the same developer, so that didn't seem like a wholly unrealistic expectation). Regardless, if you haven't played "Hotel Dusk," large chunks of this review are probably not going to make much sense, so I apologize for that in advance.

If you'd like to save yourself some reading, here's the capsule review: If you haven't played "Hotel Dusk" and you want a really good adventure game for your DS, I'd advise getting that instead of "Again." If you have played "Hotel Dusk" and you're hoping that "Again" will be pretty much like that game was, only even better because they've had a couple of years to improve their craft, prepare for some disappointment. While "Again" is an OK game, it isn't anywhere near as good as "Hotel Dusk." In a strange way, this new game sort of feels like it should have been the old game, by which I mean, "Hotel Dusk" plays like I would expect it to play if the developer had already made "Again" and wanted to make another game to address the first game's shortcomings. Instead, it's the brand-new game that has more shortcomings compared to its predecessor, and that's disappointing. To me, "Again" is a big step backwards from "Hotel Dusk" in terms of both story and gameplay.

The most similar thing about "Again" and "Hotel Dusk" is the visual presentation. It's a distinctive style, and personally I like it a lot.

2.0 out of 5 stars Agonizingly repetitive June 11, 2010
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Again bills itself as an interactive crime novel but the emphasis is on the novel part more than the interactive part. Platformed on the Nintendo DS which has had a number of outstanding crime adventure games, Again starts with an interesting premise. As the player you take the role of Jonathan Weaver, a young FBI agent whose parents were murdered by a serial killer nineteen years earlier. The killer nicknamed ` Providence " was never apprehended. But now it seems as if Providence is back. A murder in a local hotel seems to indicate the same MO as providence. Furthermore, Weaver finds a note addressed to him at the scene of the crime, toying with him.

As in most crime solving games you will be required to investigate the crime scene and interview witnesses and suspects. There's little of the technical analysis that you've seen in games like CSI. You're not dusting for prints or using UV lights to check for blood or doing any sort of lab work. Makes sense since you're not technically a CSI investigator so you'll find yourself interviewing those lab personnel who analyze evidence. But Weaver has one unique tool to use in his investigations...he is psychic. He has the ability to look into the past of a crime scene and see objects and events in the past. When this happens your DSI, which you hold open like a book, displays the past on the left side and the present on the right. Weaver basically examines those things which are different from the past to the present.

This is certainly the most fun and unique aspect to Again and gives it a bit of a leg up over similarly-themed games. It's too bad that you don't get to use the ability more and that the gameplay doesn't focus on the psychic/supernatural element.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have played a number of point and click adventure games (or "graphic novels" as some prefer to call them), many of them detective/investigation themed in style (ex. Hotel Dusk, Jake Hunter, Ace Attorney series, Touch Detective, etc.), so when I saw "Again" for sale, I was instantly intrigued. The premise itself sounds interesting (solving cases as an FBI agent who has the psychic ability to see past events), and I could always use another detective/crime investigation type game, so I figured, why not? I'll get this game. So, I picked it up (as a gift! yeah!) and gave it a go!

Graphics (score 7/10): Well, the graphics are technically pretty good. I do need to comment on the "art" style. This game uses photographs of real people for the characters. This is not technically bad, but I guess as a matter of personal preference; I actually prefer animated characters. I just feel like games that use animated characters (like Phoenix Wright or Jake Hunter) can use an artistic style to lend some uniqueness to the character designs and make them more memorable. While there's nothing technically wrong with using real people as character models, I do feel like they are far more bland and uninteresting visually compared to hand-drawn characters. Not to mention, I felt like some of the acting during cutscenes was...lacking (a bit like watching low budget soap operas...). I know this is a sort of personal preference thing, and there may be some people out there who prefer this style of graphics over "cartoons", but I just don't like it as much. Sorry. As for the other in-game graphics, the weird thing is that instead of live-action pictures, everything else in the environments (like the inside of rooms and objects) ARE animated.
