    Somebody Listened Too Well

    BASED ON COMPLETED GAME

    I think the developers have listened too well to that very vocal group of hard core gamers for whom everything is too easy. The first two games of this series were light-hearted, pretty, easy romances, and were delightful because of it. Not so Austrian Sonata.

    It is beautiful, but it is dark in a way the previous games haven’t been. And more dangerous. And more dramatic.

    MINOR SPOILER ALERT** Even the happily ever after is bitter sweet. **SPOILER FINISHED

    But above all, this game is much more difficult to play. I found myself skipping too often, and practically relying exclusively on hint to get around. And they even stole the achievements to the CE’s exclusive use. Despite all these problems I still finished the game in just over 3 hours – very short for me, and certainly shorter than most games I play.

    One important plus about this game, though, - as you’d expect from the name – the music is enchanting and refreshing.  
    All up? I think the developer tried too hard on this one, but it is still a beautiful game.

    I recommend this game!
