What a great game just finished it. Pretty long to. Some places were pretty hard but didn't look at the WT. Well worth the money. I saved all the saves just in case.

A girl and two guys have to steal a two paintings. Believe you me there is a lot more to it than that. I don't want to say to much.

Doesnt ring a bell. I`ll have to check through my games when I get back home and if not I should be able to pick it up cheap if it's an oldie. Is it a proper point and click?

lol thanks Ana. That Bobs kiosk looks familiar so I might have played it. Cant remember a thing about it though, so it might be worth a replay.

Kjos,
What are the specs of your computer? I ask this because I decided not to buy the game becasue it calls for a Nvidia Geforce 8600gs and my card is a 7600GS and therefore not powerful enough to run it. Is your system a high tech custom made machine?

According to Gamersgate, it only needs
128 MB RAM Shader 2.0 Graphics card

***Slydos' review*** of the german version says the same thing for the minimum spec, and Slydos played with a Geforce 7600 GS.

Lexxy, re: "my card is a 7600GS"
Your card is somewhat identical to my Laptop card = NVidia GForce Go 7600, a 128 MB dedicated memory and I have just installed the game and tested it for about 10 minutes and So Far, So Good.

Hope this helps

Jenny100 & Richard,
You both have help me unmake my mind. I so wanted to play this game but was afraid I would have a game on my hands that my system could not handle. Well here goes another one on my must buy list.

I am glad to see everyone is really liking this game...i am now playing as jack......up until now all there has mostly been is dialog with not much in the way of a challenge in any way whatsoever...i sure hope it gets better..i really enjoyed moment of silence, but so far this does not compare....maybe im jumping the gun to early in the game..

Hi hamer,
I have read some strong opinions on other adventure forums where players didn't like 15 Days. I think because they didn't find it enough of a challenge so maybe that will be your experience with the game too.
I think I will like it because the last thing I want is a challenge. I find it hard enough just to do the things I know I'm supposed to do (I get lost very easily!) without trying to figure out what in the world comes next and needing to check the walkthrough. Who knows, maybe this game will be so easy it will be a first for me, like the first time I didn't need hints or walkthroughs. I can hardly wait.


To love is to be happy with!

Just completed the game a few days ago, and boy its really bad, dull and boring whole way through had to quit alot cause i just got bored playing, there is little to none real gameplay and the puzzle's was just more annoying than hard thanks to the skip function.

Gotta be the worst adventure game this year so far hope alot more from this game.

I've just finished this game and while I enjoyed the story and the graphics I do agree that the game just wasn't on the same level as The Moment of Silence as far as the gameplay goes.

The main feature of 15 Days was the story and its dialogue. Puzzles were few and far between and when they did arrive they were tricky with no sort of 'help' or even a hint, just an annoying skip feature.

Another gripe I had with the game was the numerous crashes to desktop which I experienced. Some error message which said that the Cougar runtime engine had stopped working...
this must have happened at least 10 times, with no apparent reason as my specs were more than up to scratch. Everytime the error occured I had to retrace steps although thankfully the dialogue could be skipped very quickly/easily.

Advice to fellow gamers would be - if you don't like a story laden with dialogue then give this one a miss.

C+ (This ended up as a mini review)
