REVIEW

INTRODUCTION
This game is really weird to say the least. You play as a Eric who is a psycic who is later asked by a woman to become her detective. It is basically all FMV except for these little peices around the little FMV screen which you can click on. Some of them make you do an action others let you see how a specific object effected someone elses life and yet another type lets you see what the other person is seeing. This is a difficult game in my opinion the first time you play it. There is just so much stuff going on that you can't keep up until you have played it a couple times. One thing I learned is that you should try to look through someone's eyes until you can't any longer. You will have to play the game about ten times to go through everyone's situation and sort out all of the facts.

GRAPHICS-8/10
The graphics are pretty good amd the FMV is some of the best. Since there is really nothing much to the graphics I am going to go through the cast too. Most of them are ok and act well but at certain points this game seems to have some of the cheesiest actors ever but do a pretty good job. But you can't expect a hollywood movie in a 3DO game because they could never come up with that kind of money without going broke.

SOUNDS-7/10
Voices of characters is really good. Most of them sound as if they actually really rehearsed the lines and aren't just reading them. The cast should be congratulated since they probably didn't get much for this and most did really well.

CONTROL-5/10
The fact that all you can do is move through those little game peices is really pretty bogus in my opinion. You can't move Eric(main guy) around at all(well you can tell him to follow someone but I don't think that really counts ver much as to moving your character.)

GAMEPLAY-5/10
This game was pretty good until I found that you can get to the end of it in only about thirty minutes. The rating at the end of the game is pretty good but I always get the bad ones, I just can't seeem to get a good one. At the end when you play the main dude in the board game it is always very tough. I found a walkthrough for Psycic Detective, but since it just tells you who to talk to and what peices to move I think that it kinda takes the fun out of the game. But since I am getting so frustrated with it I am beginning to wonder if I should just use it and see how the ending is but I haven't brought myself to touching the printer button YET!

OVERALL FINAL SCORE-5/10
Overall you should only buy this game if you find it cheap. I wish you still could rent 3DO games because this would make a great one seeing as how short it is. There just isn't enough depth to keep one busy with this game though. Clicking little board peices and seeing through people's eyes as well as psycic visions is a cool concept but the makers just couldn't back it up on this game with enough gameplay.
