While being a movie over a video game isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it’s having to constantly stop or be prevented from moving forward because of some button presses or a sensitive text parser. The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker is not a game you’ll want to pick up for the sense of freedom or critical choices you can make, but instead for the acting and story that mirrors a movie.
Although The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker does a decent enough job at building intrigue from act to act, its repetitive nature and random approach to the murder mystery format ultimately serve to diminish what could have been a highly enjoyable detective simulator.
At the end of the day, The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker succeeds in creating an interesting narrative, but perhaps it is let down a little by the mechanics and the user interface that could have helped in giving the player a stronger sense of accomplishment and progress. If you're going into this game expecting that you'll likely be disappointed, but if you're just looking for an interesting story, or stories, that intersect and intertwine, you should give this a go.
