I'm at Dexter's Mansion right now, on Maximum Hazard, on my first playthrough, and I'm loath to say this game is hard. But on the other hand, there are sections that are unbelievably frustrating. My general impression, sadly, has been that the frustration is due not to difficulty, however, but instead to poor gameplay. I really want to like this game, if only for Will Arnett's sake. But I'm inclined to agree with its detractors that it is a poor game. Funny, but not quality.
