The Good: Fantastic script and dialogue complemented with brilliant voice acting from Chris Barrie; vast playable area with sublime surroundings and attention to detail; packed with puzzles. The Bad: A lot of pixel hunting and far too many puzzles involving small rocks; Simon’s humour is not to everyone’s liking; storyline can seem a little vague at times.
