One of my absolute favourite games, next to Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines and Planescape: Torment, this game is an absolute work of art. Everything from the music (seriously, love this soundtrack), and visuals, to the gameplay, is fluid and flows incredibly well. Amazing story telling, I found myself falling a wee bit inlove with every character. The first time I finished it, tears on my cheeks, I restarted as I didn't feel quite ready to let go just yet. Fantastic game.
