I just heard of this game in conversation with a friend, and have not found anything on 'Boomers about it. I did find it for sale on Amazon, but could not tell exactly what it was like. Is it an adventure or an RPG? Has anyone done or seen any reviews?

I haven't played it, it is not my kind of game. All I know you play a detective investigating crime scenes and have to pay attention to the smallest details.

You play as Cole Phelps, a young veteran of World War II and start the play as a newly recruited uniformed officer.

It has very good reviews. I understand is under $20 now and should be good value for money if you like this kind of play.

I played it about half way through. it was good at the beginning but then it got boring. It's sort of exactly the same all the way through. It doesn't really "grow".

Gee, that is a shame, Caz. We all know how much time and energy goes into production of these games. Too bad it didn't pan out.
