Haven't finished yet, but love it! I'm so happy an iPad port was created, might never have experienced this masterpiece otherwise. Insightful exploration of political tensions just pre-WWI. I have become obsessed with listening to the wonderful voice acting in every conversation I come across. I'm Serbian and speak French, so love the range of languages used, truly an immersive experience, I search for games like this daily! Amazing achievement, especially for a game from so long ago. Don't let the slightly clunky controls and simple animation put you off, these small issues fade to the background within 10 minutes of gameplay.

Epic game

This game is huge, I nearly ran out of space installing it but it is worth it.

Still unique after all these years and will remain a classic. This is like an interactive movie, you will love it if you enjoy a good story with interesting characters.

Don't expect too much action or fast pace gameplay, this game is all about relaxing on a couch and immersing in a historic journey of adventure.

Another classic brought back to life ! Glad to see it adapted for iPad. No-one makes games like this anymore. Great story line, totally engrossing and clever. Not overly difficult but thought is required. Games like this don't need state of the art visual effects. Love it.
