As a Hidden Object adventure this offers all the key ingredients to be a classic: excellent graphics, intelligently hidden objects, great atmosphere, a good hints system and a nice involving plot. However, the ending of the game offers no resolution whatsoever - presumably to avoid giving away the twist to potential film-goers - so leaves the player feeling unfulfilled. The game until the "ending" would earn a 90 score, as it is the underwhelming feeling of completing the game drops it to a 50; I'll split the difference,
