My husband and I played this one together...two minds are better than one! We got 11 hours of playtime out of it. We found it challenging and love figuring out the puzzles. Some were much more difficult than others. We confess that we had to have some help close to the end of the game from online "walkthroughs". Navigation was slow and we wish we could just "jump" from one place to the other with the use of the map. All in all, we had a great time challenging our brains. We're now looking for similar puzzle types of games for Wii!
I got this game expecting just a couple puzzles. I was surprised to find a Myst like game with more challenging puzzles and better graphics. I will concede that I used the walk through for two of the safes. Some of them were frustrating, but worth the effort.
I do not understand the people complaining about the lack of paper instructions, you can view what all the controls are at the beginning of the game. Other than that no instructions are necessary.
If you like playing room escape games online, or have played and liked Myst, you will enjoy this game. This is, however, definitely and rent and do not buy game. Its fun to play, but once you have won there is no point in keeping it. I would like to see a sequel.

SAFECRACKER. Is a very well thought out and developed game. It slowly grows your mind until your thinking so far outside of the box its scary.
It one of those rare games that actually make you feel proud of yourself.
As The title suggest you go around cracking safes. As you progress each safe get more and more difficult.
The Wii remotes work perfectly in tune with this game, making you believe your really there handling the tools.
Hopefully if you buy or rent this game you know what your in for. Its not some hack and slash action game, its a mature mind blowing expierence. Sometimes setting back and mediating on your task is the best way to accomplish it.
The graphics are nothing amazing, but then again its on the Wii.
With all that being said, the game is a definite rental choice, and if you like it then buy it.
