The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been under-rated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

About this game

Street psychics. Their blinking neon signs are everywhere, promising love and wealth and happiness. They make a fortune preying on the gullible and milking them dry. So when these victims begin dying and leaving confused spirits behind, it can only take a genuine psychic (and her wayward spirit guide) to clean up the mess.

From seedy downtown nightclubs to penthouse apartments to a luxury yacht on the Hudson River, Rosa and Joey will unearth the truth about the underground world of street psychics. Including some secrets that Joey would rather be left buried.

2 people commented on this game (newest first):

When it comes to storytelling and gameplay it's simply the BEST part of the series. I loved how the story developed, how new locations become available one after another during investigation. Music was also great, spooky at times, very atmospheric. What I didn't like however was the graphics. It was inconsistent, part low- part hi-res, it looked a bit too messy for me. In my opinion backgrounds looked far worse that in previous games, particularly in part three (best looking Blackwell game). Here, they seemed sort of steril and empty. Kinda dull old 3DStudio-ish(Psychic street and Night Club for example). I don't know, maybe it's just the matter of preference. I just don't like the type.
But overall, this is a really great game (and a very long one at that!).

Nice visuals and music, plot and puzzles work well. Very few inventory-based puzzles and perhaps the puzzles were a little on the easy side, but overall a quality adventure game.
