Louisiana is an entertaining 3rd person adventure game, which puts less emphasis on solving puzzles and more on dialogue and collecting clues.
The year is 1902, and Katie is sent to investigate a brutal series of murders occurring somewhere around New Orleans. When she gets there, she realises that the situation is worse than originally anticipated. People are very disturbed by the events; everybody's on the edge, frightened and suspicious. The story unfolds itself really well and the dialogues are very well written. The characters that Katie meets are believable enough, and almost all have something interesting to say, which adds more substance to the mysterious story.
The gameplay is well designed. You control Kate directly with your keyboard and mouse, and while this is not the classic direction of adventure games, fans should still like it, as it adds to the atmosphere. The environments are well designed, and even though animations are a bit stiff, it's visuals are still likable. The biggest problem, though, is the voice acting. It's clear that the actors were not professionals, and while some do try hard, they still sound unconvincing.
In conclusion, if you're looking for a mysterious story set in a rather unexploited time and location, this game is certainly for you !
