Did You Know?


In a cut scene in chapter 6 we can see a car's license plate. It reads 'S LM 9691'. There's a blue plane on the left side, so it's definitely from Europe. According to the scheme of the characters and its color it must be from Germany. Because of the 'S' we can suggest that the story is set somewhere around the area of Stuttgart. See more »

The path to the future of movie making
9 August 2001 | by PFoxSee all my reviews

Ok, so this is not really a game: the puzzles are really easy, and the cut scenes are usually longer than the game time. This is, in fact A MOVIE in a videogame disguise. The main plot concept is excellent (a man is killed many times, and he must goes back in time each time to try to stop the killer... and guess who he is and why does he want to kill him), and it develops very well, creating, as in a good time travel movie, many plot twists to keep you interested. In fact, one can spot some plot holes, but the main thing about this game is that the tight combination between game-times and movie-times makes the viewer feel a lot more 'inside' the screen than in any 'real' movie. Even though the dialogue is not great and the choose of shots for the scenes could be better (not being so the great -for being subtle- music score), I felt more moved by this 'movie' that for any other good film in the past months... May this be the future of movie making???
