Although Art of Murder: Hunt For the Puppeteer isn't as bad as The Path, it's still one of the worst Adventure games I've had to sit through. It's buggy, offers mostly bland and retread puzzles and the story is one of the worst I've played in any sort of game, regardless of genre. The closest thing to a positive comment I can say about this game is that at least the backgrounds aren't hideous. Keep your twenty dollars and eight hours of your life far, far away from this stinker. Don't Do What Donny Don't Does".
