Finally got this game. (Actually managed to find it in English in Seoul - and used no less.)

Anybody else (well, besides Leyviur) play it?

Enjoy it?

(Not a slight against Leyviur, I'm just assuming that he liked it and would like multiple opinions)

Yup, played it when it first came out. Awesome game. Probably my favorite DS title to date.

I nabbed it day one and finished it up that day I think.  I loved every minute of it.

Okay. General consensus is postive, good to hear.

Not much of a chance to play yet, battery died on my DS on the train home from Seoul and today was work, so I'm going to give it a go tonight.

+1 from me too.  Definitely a good game.  Not as puzzle oriented as other graphic adventures but very dialogue oriented.

I approve of this nonsense!

As someone who loved old text adventure games, I have no problems with that.

I like the visual style too.

I enjoyed it a lot too. It definitely has style for it and loved the main lead, but felt the music was overall plain and some other technical issues, hence why I gave it an 86 percent I also enjoyed the second Phoenix Wright game just as much as their release dates are pretty close, but for different reasons. I like to see more text adventures on the DS as my interest in the genre grows.

I may not be as obsessed with it as the others here, but it is a definite winner.

I enjoyed it, but there were a few problems with it that marred the experience for me. For one, a lot of the puzzles seemed extremely mundane. Okay, I'm a detective, so why am I doing girl's jigsaw puzzles (and 2 times, no less), why am I bowling, or why am I solving stupid bar peg puzzles? Plus, the touch screen bits were often confusing. For instance:

Code:
You know that you have to cut the hanger to make a lock pick, but then you have to fuck around over and over to find the right hotspots. Same thing with rubbing flour on the pen. There lots of other examples of this that I can't remember.


Now, I've played lots of adventure games, and know that non-sensical puzzles are often a feature of the genre (Day of the Tentacle is an excellent example) but in Hotel Dusk, they were more frustrating than fun.
