The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker Reviews
The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker is an immersive masterpiece with a stellar cast and a brilliant script which deserves to be lauded for all the right reasons. With the replay value and the ridiculous cheap price for how great the game is you would need a good reason to not buy this game. And when you do you will sit back in awe of how good games can be.
The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker is one of the best FMV games you’ll play on current consoles to date. From its intuitive manual text input questioning to its randomness in terms of who the killer is and how certain story elements progress, this is a game you can replay multiple times and end up with a different outcome as you uncover new information and discover more things about your patients, whether or not you want too. If you’re looking for an interactive ‘whodunnit’ game which can be played solo or even with others chipping in with what to say (locally or on stream), then I can’t recommend The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker enough.
A solid 7/tentacles on the Great Old God for this one though
The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker is another title published by Wales Interactive that tries to bring back FMV games. It's interesting game focusing on reviewing patients of recently deceased Doctor Dekker, but necessity of typing answers makes it really tiering on consoles.

It’s actually been a struggle to figure out how to score this game because in general it has left me conflicted. On the one hand the acting is very good, the individual patients have some fascinating elements to their stories, and it turns out there’s even some solid motivation to play through more than once. One the other your main purpose, finding the murderer, may be one of the least interesting things to the experience and you can find yourself in a weird place where the prompts can almost make you feel like you’re on rails but at the same time trying to pose your own questions is often aggravating. If you’re down for a weird experience with some strange people, opportunities to explore some possibilities, and quite a bit of the unexpected it may be worth a shot. If not, I’d say the likes of The Bunker and Late Shift are better at being more traditional experiences.
