This game is a classic crime mystery adventure game. Just like the first Art of Murder, it does not change at all in its gameplay.
What i think is not right is the connection between the introduction cinematics and the very beginning of the game. Suddenly out of nowhere i am already on a murder scene...in Paris!
It really did not connect very well with the introduction scene. The main character looked so much like a mannequin instead of a character or a 3D character, don't even mention it as near to being a person.
When the characters talk, they only open and close their mouth, with no A or O shape and even worse, they keep on opening and closing their mouth after the sentence is done.
The story itself originally is not a bad idea. The environment graphic design is beautiful, as always. Simple inventory system with close up 3D view when i clicked on the objects.
Vocal talents are good. Nice music. I like the music. This game is so ordinary, real classic. It is not a bad game, but not a great game either. Nice to play, but does not make me looking forward to it.
The quests are not hard and quite logical. The main character will never take an object laying about before she found an idea of what to use it for? Some games allowed me to take ALL the available objects and sometimes it took me to half of the game before i can use it, sometimes it is not even used until the game has ended.
The idea of not taking just any objects before the gamer found a way to use it for is a great idea.
This game can seriously be upgraded. I am looking forward to Art of Murder 3. I hope it will be much better!
