Discworld Noir Perfect Entertainment / GT Interactive Software Corp. 1999

This is the third and last PC game based on Terry Pratchett's popular fantasy universe. It is also the best, even though Rincewind (the hero from the other two games) is nowhere to be found, and light-hearted humor has been replaced by forboding atmosphere and shady characters. The one thing that it has in common with its predecessors, though, is the sharp British wit... and droning dialogues that seem to take forever. It's set in the most depraved city in the Discworld, Ankh-Morpork, where the sun never shines (because it is always night). You play Lewton, a downtrodden P.I. who was once a member of the Watch (i.e. Discworld police) until he was fired for accepting a bribe. The beautiful and mysterious Carlotta just hired you to find Mundy, her ex-lover. As you start looking into Mundy's disappearance more missing persons cases present themselves to you. Missing persons start turning up dead with yours truly as the prime suspect. Throw in a missing artifact, some shady underworld characters, and the ex-girlfriend who broke you heart, and you have all the elements of classic Raymond Chandler noir novels. In a refreshing break from the recent trend of 3D adventures, it's a traditional third-person adventure with a few novel twists. In addition to the standard point-and-click interface, you have a notebook that contains a list of suspects' names and clues. By clicking on one of these and then clicking on something else in the environment that you think relates to it, if the two things are related, you will gain new insights that often lead to new clue(s) appearing in the notebook. While most of the conversations talking to suspects are witty, they are also excessively long - not unlike the previous two Discworld games. However, it's an excellent adventure that's well worth the money. Its interesting plot and characters, great interface, and challenging puzzles really brings Lewton's world to life, and make the game's weaknesses seem trivial. The game was never released in the US, only in Europe.
