IGN: Mystery P.I.: Portrait of a Thief Review

With its timed chapters, Portrait of a Thief adds a little spin to the seek-and-find genre. However, it's such a minute variable that it rarely affects the game. The developers really try to play up the whole spy theme, but it falls flat with the random inventory of clues you have to track down. IGN would have been more entertained by a title that was just constantly changing seek and finds with no unifying theme to distract from what ultimately is a simple pleasure. In the end, it's a mediocre way to kill time that could probably be trumped by a Highlights book.
