I played part of the demo and my instant gripe was being preached at.
I don't like it.

From the part of it I did play, I imagine your review is right on, flotsam.

I still have the demo o my desk top as I still have not been able to get the small trap door open next to apartment where I hear the conversations. If I start out needing help with just a small part of the game I don't know if there is much help continuing. I may still buy it but I am on the fence.

Lexxy,
I think that's a tricky part of the game.

If you check this video at around 14min 15sec into it, you can see how you're expected to wrestle with the trap door.
