The boys at Studio 3DO almost have something here. Much better than any FMV game, Snow Job attempts to create a truly interactive movie experience.
You play a guy who must track down a ex-girlfriend who's gotten herself mixed up in some bad stuff. Gumshoe your way through countless screens of point-and-click action. What makes this game remarkable is that each of these screens has been shot 360-degrees.You can turn you head anywhere and check out the environment. This cool feature, however, doesn't completely alleviate the numerous problems this game has with its linear story and its limiting format. Good effort.

One of the latest titles for the 3DO, Snow Job is a mystery set in New York. The main character is Assistant District Attorney Lara Calabreeze. It seems as though someone has a death wish for her. What do the players have to do? Figure which one of the 20 suspects wants her six feet under.
The gameplay is rather sketchy. It is known that you travel from location to location questioning everyone and everything. Full-motion video plays a large part, as most of the story is played out this way. Snow Job has a lot of similarities to the old Turbo CD-ROM game Sherlock Holmes.
The graphics look good so far, and it'll be interesting to see how this one turns out. FMV games aren't all that popular, but it could win players over with its generous use of female characters.
