This is the Zodiac Speaking has interesting ideas, but is ultimately a dull slog through a poorly-told story.

A mediocre, meandering mystery game hiding under the mask of something greater. While it has a competent story to tell, it lacks the means to tell it in an engaging manner.

Ultimately the game feels like the first draft of a really great idea. Add some polish, and we’d love to see what it could become.

If you absolutely have to pick up this game, do yourself a favor and play Detective mode. You’ll get through it three times as fast and can move onto something worth your time
