Clues lead you to an eerie, old hotel rumored to have one very strange room a room where wishes are granted. It's up to you to unravel the mystery in Hotel Dusk: Room 215, a gritty new graphic adventure for Nintendo DS. The DS system is held like a book, which allows characters on the screens to face left or right for more realistic conversations. The unique controls let even novices enjoy themselves. The unique hand-drawn character portraits and their animations are in black and white, making them exceedingly distinctive and able stand out, graphically speaking, from the rest of the game.

In this adventure game you play ex cop (now a salesman) called Kyle Hyde, who is searching for a friend(I know it sounds boring but it isnt-i will explain, promise) he shot his friend but thinks he survived. I am not going to tell you any more as that would ruin the exellent plot which this game feeds on. Unlike some adventure games, theare are actually places where you can fail (during conversations) because the game has a set plot which can only change slightly before reverting to the set path. The game's graphics suit it well and are sketchy on a 3d backround (backround blurred during conversation for extra realism). The music gives a brilliant ... Read the complete review

Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is a good little game for the Nintendo DS, that should keep the average gamer's attention for quite a while. The general idea is to piece together the mystery surrounding an ex-cop's partners disappearance and it's connection to the the mysterious Hotel Dusk. The game has a 'sketchy' film noir style animation that will not be to everyone's taste, but it is certainly different to the standard colourful Nintendo mentality. The plot is decent enough and the challenge, without giving away any spoilers, is aimed at just the right level for the type of gamer I think Hotel Dusk is aimed at. You use the DS on it's side like a ... Read the complete review

Hotel Dusk is not a game for everyone. It can be slow moving at times, and in my circle of friends it has been either a loved or loathed game. The game is basically a detective story with you playing the lead character, based in a hotel, with you dealing with a varied cast of characters and their intertwining stories and relationships. The relationships are frequently intriguing, occasionally hilarious, and almost always believable. Although the game is a tad slow to start, once into the game it becomes an enjoyable story, with the main character Kyle Hyde a complex character and his trials and tribulations will keep a patient player glued to their DS. It's hard to write Read the complete review

As you all know, I was a major fan of Phoenix Wright, the adventure game where you fight in cort and get justice for the right people. Now, from the makers of the adventure game, Another Code: Two Memories, this is a noir style detective mystery, packed with interesting plotlines, a compelling story, excellent visuals and well written dialogue. It’s slow and not for everyone, but fans of adventure games are in for a treat. Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is one of the best games the DS has to offer, even if it doesn’t reach the calibre of the original Phoenix Wright. -(The Story)- With adventure games, the story can make or break the game. In the case of Hotel Dusk: ... Read the complete review

If you've got a DS you just have to own Hotel Dusk, more especially so if you're a fan of interactive text adventures and mystery. I purchased this game on a whim barely knowing anything about it a year or so ago and it has fast become my favourite game on any handheld console. The story introduces us to a sleepy Southwestern hotel, one that seems to be the source of everyones darkest secrets. Cing, best known for Trace Memory in 2005, have put their heads together with Nintendo with an attempt at another DS adventure based game, and a fantastic one at that. Puzzle-solving mechanics and very creative use of the DS dual touch screen certainly mimics the ... Read the complete review
