The great thing about the Nintendo DS is that there is so much innovation to it. Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is a game that has been done time and time again, but on the DS they can take it to a new level, and strangely it works really well. For any gamer looking for a sophisticated, engaging story, Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is right up your alley. It's engaging, simple, but still manages to be a complex game full of heart. Those who really enjoy Film Noir will also really get a kick out of this.

Kyle Hyde is a former NYPD detective. His partner was Brian Bradley. Under circumstances unknown Kyle ended up having to shoot Brian and his body fell into the Hudson River. The body was never recovered, but Kyle still believes that Brian is alive. Three years later, in 1979, Kyle is working as a Private Investigator for those unwilling to go to the police for help. A client has asked him to locate certain items left at the Hotel Dusk. Kyle, of course, accepts. As the mystery unfolds, Kyle begins to learn what really happened to his former partner.

Part of makes Hotel Dusk work is that it is very stylistic. Kyle is a likeable guy, despite that he's stereotyped into being the alcoholic ex-cop. His character really comes alive. And it isn't just his character that comes to life, it's all the characters that you talk to throughout the game. Each and every one of them is unique and distinct. Along those lines the dialog is really crafty and humanistic, to a point where you feel less like you're playing a game, and more like you're reading an engrossing detective novel.

To compliment the game even more, the visual art style is nothing short of fantastic. The character designs are hand-drawn, but they're uniquely done.

I'll be honest, I didn't really have high hopes for Hotel Dusk: Room 215 from the time I had heard about the game making it's way over here, but thankfully I was pleasently surprised with the results. Taking the point and click genre to different levels on the DS, Hotel Dusk makes you turn your DS sideways to play it, making it look like you're playing an open book instead of a video game. And book is the word to describe this unique game, as Hotel Dusk pays numerous odes to the crime-noir fiction of yesteryear with it's engaging story, colorful characters, and dark and mysterious atmosphere. Hotel Dusk: Room 215 puts you in the shoes of Kyle: a disgraced and grizzled former detective trying to piece together a puzzle surrounding the people staying at Hotel Dusk. There is more to the story, but revealing any more would ruin the surprises that are abound throughout this game, and the intricacy of the game's story is probably the most surprising thing of all. The character designs are wonderfully drawn and utilized, almost looking like an interactive comic book. Also, Hotel Dusk is easy to pick up and play, even for gamers who have never played a point and click type game before. If there's any drawbacks to Hotel Dusk, it's that it's slow pace will be a major turn off for many gamers. While the game is easy to pick up and play, not everyone will stick with it due to it's pacing. Also, on occasion, the game's story does suffer from some typical puzzle and adventure trappings, and does feel linear to a point. Despite all that though, Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is yet another unique and exclusive title for Nintendo's wonderous, dual screened handheld, and if you own a DS, you should definitely check this game out; you'll be pleasently surprised.

This game was one of the most engaging, enthralling games to come out in recent history. After making Trace Memory, and hearing the fans response that the game was too easy; this company went all-out. Deep and complex storyline, interesting and ever-changing cast of characters, and overall sense of being pulled into the game. The mysteies in the story go deeper and deeper.

Dont fool yourself. The game is long....and difficult. You wont be able to beat this right away. However, you will think about this game constantly until you beat it. Some parts are easy (talking to different people for long sets of time, mini-games and puzzles). Others are very tough (You must do specific things at specific set times to achieve complete success) and may require multiple tries.

Overall this game is a GREAT detective story that relies heavily on the gamer's ability to read people and situations.

Everything about this game worked. 5 Stars.

I just got Hotel Dusk yesterday and I must say that it is a great game. It is just like the old school mysteries. The game reminds me of something like Sherlock Holmes mixed with Sin City. Here are the pros and cons:

-the graphics are cool. they are like drawings and paintings.
-good story line that keeps you intrigued and wondering.
-you can look at and investigate almost every item in the game.
-you hold the DS like a book to play.
-the story goes by chapters.
-as you play you meet a lot of new characters.
-the tasks keep you thinking but are not overly difficult.

-the music in the background is often monotonous.
-there is a lot of reading to do (some people don't like that)

overall, i think this game is great so far and i highly recommend it.
