Edna & Harvey is a pretty terrible game. The story is pretty good, but due to the nature of the game it is impossible to really enjoy it to its fullest.
The game, in many places, is broken. From missing/untranslated tooltips to animation bugs, achievements don't trigger on the english version, and even the final chapter of the game is impossible to access without a user-made patch. This level of problems is quite frankly unacceptable from a game. The performance isn't great either. You would expect from an old game that it would run fine on newer systems, but no. I'm not sure what the game is loading but moving to new areas in the game causes the program to hang for inordinately long time.
The gameplay itself is not great. While the game starts out good it devolves into some really obscure puzzles that need to be figured out, and that need to be done in an exact order. If you get ahead of yourself things stop triggering properly, which is very annoying.
The voice acting and animation (when it does work) are pretty good. The characters in the game are also very funny and could really tell a good story, if in the right sort of game. It's just a pity this game is so bad.
Save yourself some trouble, and stay well away from this game.
