I just finished it yesterday. It's definitely worth playing. The graphics and design are top notch and the story kept me at the edge of my seat and immersed the whole time. smile
Is anyone else just a little disapointed though? I finished the game in two days, probably much less than 15 hours with help on only one puzzle. I'm surprised because this game is aimed at the young adult market and yet some of the puzzles are for kids they're so easy. There are tons of beautiful scenes, but you can't do much in most of them so it's not hard to figure out what items you have to use. Syberia had much more difficult puzzles I thought.
Also, the story could have been developed more. It starts out interesting and unique and then transforms into another jack the ripper version with lots of loose ends to boot.

Is anyone in here playing Still Life with an ATI Radeon 7000 video card? Someone who posted over in glitches is having problems, and I was wondering if it could be the card.

juventus_dzd -- Welcome to GameBoomers! welcome

I've enquired, and I've looked through the UK online stores, and there doesn't seem to be any information currently available as to when the game will be released in Europe. frown

I'm jealous. I can't play mine. Even when I disable McAfee I keep getting virus messages every time I put in the CD to play so I just uninstalled it. I going to try and contact the Adventure Company to see if they can help.

In their usual form...Amazon.com now has the game available for $19.99 shipping "in 24 hours", directly from Amazon.

They always do this: Mess around with their pre-orders. Give you impossible dates and other sites to order from. Then once the game is released, give it a week and it's like it was there the whole time! rolleyes

So...my copy is on order and Sandy Sleuth and I will be enjoying this game on our next visit! You guys have us all psyched!!!! happydance

Cheers...

JK

"If you played Post Mortom, you might remeber that your lead character was named Gus McPherson. That was the first game in this sequel. Yes, I said SEQUEL! Still Life involves Gus's Granddaughter, Victoria. Both Post Mortom and Still Life tie in together with very similiar murders. This sets us up for the last game to this trilogy. All she knows is that there WILL be a sequel to Still Life, but they don't know when it will be released, or by who, although she kinda hinted that UBI SOFT might be doing it, since they bought Microids, but she wasn't 100%.

Found on another board and attributed to a source at Microids.

So The puzzles are easy, that's good news! I think I'll let JK do the sliders though! ( I HATE Sliders!)

Viz,
Are you saying that Still Life is actually the sequel to Post Mortem?

lol Me too! I still have not seen it anywhere in the New Orleans area yet. I like to support my local stores so most the times I will just wait.

Wow John Boy!I thought UK people were unlucky to wait so long. Try dvdboxoffice. They ship free to the whole universe . I would love to go to New Orleans, as would my dreadful teenage son as he is a jazz trumpeter.

I only started playing a couple of hours ago, and decided to come up for air. So far ... so good! The opening intro grabbed me immediately and the storyline seems to be right up my alley.

I received my game yesterday from interactcd, they were terrific as always with the best overseas postage rate. I installed it right away and only wanted a quick look what the game is like - 3 hours later I was still at it! I just love this game, the violence and profanity are nothing like what you have to put up with in movies these days. A big plus for me is that you don't get killed every 5 minutes. The detailed graphics are great.

Okay, I just completed Still Life, and have been avoiding all threads about it until now.

WARNING: Spoilers lying ahead, so stop reaidng if you haven't completed the game!!!

Okay, so, to sum up my thoughts: WOW!!! eek This might be my all-time favorite adventure game, aside from the Gabriel Knight series! Never before have I been so drawn into a game's story, and what a story it is!

If I HAD to complain about anything (and you'd really have to force me to complain), it would only be on the game's irratic level of difficulty. I managed to complete the game without any walkthroughs, which is good, but - to me - it felt like the game was, for the most part, ridiculously easy, interspersed with extremely challenging puzzles (especially the lock picking one, IMO). I wish there had been a little more consistency in the challenge level, but this is just a minor complaint.

Also, what did everyone think of the ending? It DEFINITELY leaves open the possibility for a sequel (here's hoping!). Oh well, I guess you can't have everything...maybe in a sequel, hehe.

Overall, I would definitely give this game 10/10. The best adventure game I've played in a long, long time!!! laugh

::goes back to rewatch the cinematic sequences::

CBsection : edited your post a bit as well. thanks PLEASE EVERYONE: DO NOT POST THE END PLOT !
Unless the thread is titled that way, as in "Plot spoilers thread". Appreciate it! With other spoilers, if you could write it with some room between your spoiler caution and your information, that would be much appreciated as well. A lot of folks want to hear your impressions, and it could ruin the game for them to actually find out the ending ahead of time. Thanks everyone!
