The Silver Case is more interesting in the context of Suda 51's career than it is as a standalone game. It shows an ambitious floating of new ideas past the player, and much of how the story is presented would later find a more welcome home when surrounded by much weirder, wilder worlds.
Fans of Suda51 absolutely must play this game, but other folks might need to do some self reflection. A tolerance for the controls, a set up that the game itself comments upon as being off, is needed, and the sound must be adjusted to prevent insanity. Anybody looking to ignore these minor issues and looking for a visual novel/adventure game hybrid should study The Silver Case.
