It was my first contact with Red Johnson's adventures and judging by the information I read about it I expected it to be a kind of 'noir' story, filled with suspicious characters, sinister backstreets and other shady stuff. And although I didn't find all that much of it in this game, I was not disappointed, because the game turned out to be an interesting criminal story, or more accurately - a bunch of (more or less) connected stories and puzzles. While some might prefer some stronger connections between them, I didn't really care as long as the investigative element kept me busy and involved in the game. And I recommend this game to everybody who enjoyed investigations in Still Life or Sherlock Holmes games.
