This game is one of the best detective games I've ever come across – and you're not even a detective in it. The plot, which starts out vague but picks up the pace quicky, revolves around you – a spy – recounting stories of your break-ins to your enemies. Very clever puzzles that require logical deductions as well as creativity, and the equally clever use of flashbacks to advance the plot are what set this game apart.
