The puzzles are engaging and varied, which makes you use many parts of your brain. I think that is probably the greatest part of this game. A lot of effort went into making these puzzles just hard enough but solvable for the average person. Storyline is really good and graphics as good as you might want and better than you might expect for a game of this caliber and cost. Voice acting is decent (except for the kids, which are horrible, but again, for the price it's fine and also it's not why you bought this game in the first place). Overall a game worth buying and spending a few hours challenging your observational and puzzling skills on.
