Editors Didn't Like

  • Anything not strictly about finding clues or interviewing people, Autosaving isn't consistent, Cutscenes and human characters generally look rough
  • Some minor clipping and glitching issues, Facial animations/lips off at times, Stealth section can be tricky at times
  • A couple of truly awful action sequences are frustrating, Too much rote clicking on hotspots becomes tedious, Loads of spelling mistakes tarnish the game's writing
