Just another game about a time-traveling detective who deflects knives by spitting bubblegum at them as they fly through the air at full speed. Yep, just another game...

I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

What do these ratings mean?

     So, you like to watch Law and Order, but wish it had a gritter, 1920's edge?  Has youe dream always been to be a gumshoe wandering around the city?  (Not going to lie, I have always wanted that job...)  Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is a new game from Nintendo that shows how the DS is turning into more than just a simple handheld gaming machine and more into something that can tell a story, and a good one at that.

    Hotel Dusk is basically a text game with some 3-d puzzles.  The reason I use this example is because the same kind of people who like those old text-based games are going to like Hotel Dusk.  The controls are easy to master, but sometimes you feel like your playing this thing on a Palm Pilot due to the amount of time you spend playing with the stylus.  Not that is a bad thing, the game uses it well.

    As for graphics, the game really sucks you in with the style of art.  It has a lot of grit in the images, and it really does the story justice.  As for the story, well....its a little strange.  The actual plot feels like a Japanese take on American movies, and while that might not make any sense now, once you pick the game up and start to play, you'll get what I mean. 

    Overall, its a solid game, but don't pick it up expecting to be done with it in an afternoon or pick it up for a light session.  This is a DS game that demands patience and time due to the level of difficulty for the puzzles.  However, if you like playing as a lawyer on the DS, your going to love Hotel Dusk.
