Okay so the title of the review is a bit antagonistic. At least, it might seem that way to the game’s developer. I might normally be inclined to change it to put the most positive spin on the game, but this is exactly how I felt while playing the game.

Ben receives a call from the man accused of the crime, begging him to go to Rome and clear his name.
