The adventure begins after a quick tutorial in a Parisian art gallery, where we’re introduced to the game’s protagonists. Fans will be delighted to see the return of George Stobbart and Nico Collard, who witness the abrupt murder of the museum’s owner and the theft of a priceless painting, encouraging their return to the world of private detective work.
Of course, this is where the point-and-click action comes into play. You’re tasked with investigating every nook and cranny of the title’s environments in order to try and solve the case – and you should take that literally, as nearly everything in the world is clickable. On the one hand, this delivers a wealth of things for you to do in the small areas that are accessible, but on the other it results in the adventure moving along at sluggish pace, and it makes you feel like you’re the one that should be carrying a notepad, not George.
