Don't get me wrong and I meant no disrespect. I wasn't questioning the virtues of using Walkthroughs, Hints or the right to use them, I was really confused as to how one could wish for a longer game when it is. I also agree with you on when you are really enjoying a game you don't ever want it to end.
No problem! But you pointed out to me something that I hadn't thought of. Using the hint system made the game really easy to follow and of course it would shorten a game.
When I think of the time and effort the game developers put into a game it really is impressive. Something that I wouldn't have the least idea how to do. The Carol Reed series and this game require a lot of photography which would take a long time to achieve what they want for a game and I certainly do appreciate their efforts.
I think they do a wonderful job.
