"All in all, I enjoyed playing The Experiment despite its flaws. I would have greatly appreciated an option to speed up the avatar, or perhaps have her "zip" to previously visited locations without having to prod her with the lights. I would also have appreciated more in-game hints and feedback, such as a glimmer that would signal where an important item might be located. I would recommend this game most highly to gamers who might be tired of the standard point-and-click adventures and would like to experiment with something radically different-though I might point out that a similar concept was already explored in the 1985 Activision classic game Hacker. Overall, though, the pros outweighed the cons in The Experiment, and I was glad to see the developer pushing the genre in unfamiliar directions." -- by Matt Barton.
