Detective Pikachu reviews and comments

An unusual game with an interesting setting that left me satisfied. It’s very exciting to play Detective Pikachu - it’s very different from previous Pokemon games I’ve played. The investigation itself could be harder, but this game is still a unique experience. It’s nice to play it for some time, just to relax.  
Let’s investigate the case about Detective Pikachu: is it a good game? You have some hints here: 
it’s unusual
 but the conclusion is dumb 
the characters and the story are awesome
 but you won’t play the game again 
a great variety of crime scenes
 but the cases are so long that you can get bored 
and the controls are awkward.
 Is it a good game after all? Can’t say this. It’s creative, of course, but ruined by several disappointing mistakes.
