Very Good

Great Controls & Creativity but too much Cognitive

This puzzling adventure is exactly what wii've been waiting for! The way controls were meant to be- you pull levers without pushing buttons! This game requires your cognitive skills to an extreme. I was excited starting out, but it quickly became an unrelenting form of Brain Age- some levels require things to be done in a particular order, otherwise you have to restart. I personally needed a strategy guide, but an offical one has not yet been released. For creative backbone I give it a 10; for controls I give it a 10; but for difficulty I personally had too much trouble-8.

I actually was going to buy this before even playing it because it was getting rave reviews. I have to agree but the point and click does get annoying, and when you get to where you have to play the flute the controler does not want to work. The art style fits pefectly and it is pretty well put together. It is real short each puzzle only takes a few minutes and when you think about it there is not much replay value. Maybe the sequal will be better but for now I would say deffinitly rent it!

Bad

Not for me

I won't disparage the game or it's fans, I'll just say that it wasn't for me. I played it for a few hours and at no point did I have fun. Not what I look for in a video game.
