The most striking thing about this game is just how totally unique it is. The setting, the main character, the subject matter, are all things you really don't see in video games. And for the most part, the game succeeds in bringing you into its dark, plague-devastated world of desperation and madness. Other reviewers have touched on the negatives. Some of the backtracking can get pretty annoying because actions become available that weren't possible in earlier trips through a given area. But that isn't too unusual for this kind of game. Even if you end up having to use a walkthrough, it is still worth it just to get through to more story and atmosphere. But overall the puzzles are not too hard to figure out. Make sure you play it in Latin! I think it really makes for a totally different experience. The main character is pretty much a reprehensible, predatorial guy from the start, so don't approach the game looking for a warm and fuzzy time. You may not sympathize with him, but you will probably want to keep going to find out what he will do next. If you have any interest in medieval times, religious history, or just dark, atmospheric, intriguing adventure games, I really don't think you can go too wrong with this one. After playing this I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of the series.
