I just installed this game last night (although it's been laying around for quite some time). Much to my surprise, it's all keyboard controlled. That does not bode well for me. I got through Grim Fandango only because it was such a good game and kept my attention.

Is this game really worth my struggling trying to figure out which key does what? I'm really leaning towards just putting everything back in the box and moving on.

It's a funny game. Some dialogues are good.

There are arcadey puzzles that can be frustrating on keyboard.

The cartoons are well drawn.

I liked it, had a good time all things considered. Steve and all the folks at Revolution had t work within a lot of restraints, as the game had to derive graphically and all from the movie of the same name.

Some puzzling can be frustrating for people if they shy away any form of timed puzzling, then there is the keyboard controls, though the timer on these few instances is fairly generous.

But is IS a FUN game, and has that Steve Ince touch to it. smile

Thanks for the opinions. I will give it another couple tries, but keyboard controls are really not my "thing".
