I would have to nitpick to come up with anything else. I suppose The Lion's Song isn't what you'd traditionally call a "game," but it works as an engrossing experience that you're bound to relate to in one way or another. Its relatively cheap cost also makes it an easy pick for the mid-summer drought of games, though it does more than just exist as a cheap distraction.

The Lion's Song is an excellent point-and-click adventure game for those who enjoy narrative. It's not about fetching items or solving inventory puzzles in 20th-century Austria. Instead, it transports you back to a time fairly different from ours — but less so than you might think. The characters still experience anxiety and self-doubt, they search for the truth about themselves, they make certain compromises or changes to get what they want.

The Lion's Song is a beautiful narrative-focused game if you get passed the sluggish cursor and the slow character movement. Each episode contains its own beautiful story which are woven together to form a satisfying conclusion. Any fans of the art scene in the early 20th century or anyone hungry for a good narrative should definitely board the train on this one.

The Lion's Song is a great point-and-click game that focuses mostly on the narrative.  The choices you make in one chapter can not only impact the other chapters (both later and earlier chapters), but seeing all of these choices have connections to each other in the Gallery is a nice touch.  With its unique art-style and use of music throughout the game, The Lion's Song was a great experience.
