Overall, D4 is utterly charming. It's also thought-provoking and very, very silly. To substantiate the main game, there are leaderboards that track things such as "calories consumed" or "distance traveled" throughout individual plays. It's all very fun, even when addressing the gory details of a murder, but that's not where it stops.
Despite how short some of these quests are, it's insane how much detail was put into just about every facet of the game. ...It ends on a cliffhanger, but D4 has me intrigued, mostly because I felt a genuine attachment to the characters. I want to see this journey through to the end, and the classic Swery wackiness kept me interested throughout the relatively familiar adventure genre gameplay.
Yet the qualities of D4's storytelling shouldn't be overlooked. Within the framework of a crime procedural it touches upon the nature of obsession, the heartache of lost love, the seductive ideal of changing the past, and even the fickleness of fashion. If it isn't always consistent, it's certainly never boring, and often gives you something to think about.
