This game was sooo good there making a sequel in japan but america? Well the game is soo frusterating that i couldn't sleep tring to solve the problems! but the game was fantastic if our looking for a real long n tough detective game! Make sure ur ds is charged fully because whe you play this game, you-will-be-hooked!
basically everything about this game is interesting storyline, the characters, the items, etc.. but i warn you, its not a type of game for people who dont like a good mystery, or for people who dont like reading. the ending was a little less than what i expected, it still leaves you guessing, and wondering.

It is hard to review this game fairly without giving away too much, so I am going to keep this short and simple for those of you questioning if this is worth a rental. The answer is a big YES. Hotel Dusk is more or less a point and click type of adventure, with some puzzles added in for good measure. The story is dark and insanely entertaining, and the characters are so vivid they put Phoenix Wright to shame. I advise not reading into this title too much before renting it. Go into it knowing you are in store for a surreal experience almost unlike any other available on a videogame system, and you will be good to go. The art work is definately my absolute favorite part of this game. This is truly a graphic novel come to life, the character expressions are flawless and the 3d areas you explore are a bit PS-1-ish but this is the nintendo ds, and i (as you in all probability) have gotten a little used to it (the graphics are pretty much right on par with those in resident evil ds, as far as 3d is concerned) for ages 16 + (and thats being..pretty loose with the youngest age which you might find extreme satisfaction with the title) this is one of the best games on the market. I really like that the game is held sideways, much like brainage, as well because it really helps get you in the feel of "this is an interactive novel". And on an ending note, NOVEL is a great term to wrap up with because it is how most of this game is. This is pretty much the innovation of TRACE MEMORY, combined with the memorable characters of PHOENIX WRIGHT, and a graphic style that reminds me of MAX PAYNE, but does the whole "comic noir" bit exactly right. I might be the only person to do this, but for bang per buck this is beyond a perfect ten. A plus entertainment, at its finest.
