Review of Maniac Mansion


Rating by Lagomorph posted on Jul 12, 2016


Point-and-click pioneer that lives up to its reputation


I really like how this game is centered around the mansion and the routines of its inhabitants. Suspense permeates the game world as you never know when you might get caught. In addition to having to outwit the NPC's, the player must also manage a team of three characters, which adds another layer to the gameplay. Maniac Mansion is one of the hardest LucasArts adventures, but puzzles are usually fair and occasionally clever. I particularly liked the one involving the chandelier. Maniac Mansion does have its limitations. While replaying the game recently, I couldn't help but feel frustrated that there was no "look at" verb. This hampers the immersion a bit as does the lack of dialogue and characterization. I don't really mind the deaths or dead ends, but the more fleshed-out stories and game worlds of later LucasArts adventures certainly mark an improvement over the sparse treatment given here.

annoyware instead of entertainment - what a pity


A most annoying game. Illogical puzzles, making it harder by giving you zero feedback if you are on right track, but needs some additional stuff to do. Game designers seem to love punishing the player instead of entertaining him/her. Slow walking pace and long animations so you loose patience to try solving puzzles by experimenting. The only pros are the humour, some funny characters and the nice animations (even if outdated by todays standards). I bought this game recently on GOG summer sale on very low bargain price, end even this I cannot consider 'value for money'.

Review of Dreamfall Chapters

Great story, catches the spirit of previous games.


I've found that a lot of the reviews by Adventure Gamers miss the mark lately. Stasis an absolutely horrible game got 4.5 stars while they only award 2.5 stars to Dreamfall Chapters. And I've found other examples as well where, at least to my taste, they've been quite off. Anyway, while this game is light on puzzles and while the controls are not your classic 2D point and click. I think RTG caught the atmosphere of the old games quite well. 5/5 stars, well because someone ought to pull the average up.

Very nice interactive animated series


I think it was….is… a very good story, but I would play all episodes right after each other to keep the story good to follow. It will be a long sit though. The game is beautifully made, very good voice acting ect ect, but it’s missing the puzzle solving for me. There are almost no puzzles at all. The puzzles that are there are very very simple. I love adventure games, but an interactive animation series from time to time I’ll enjoy too.

Amazing journey


I love this game! As they are still patching up the game, I recommend you to wait for the final release, where they've adjusted bits here and there. Awesome graphics, awesome story, music.. It'll touch your soul :) <3 I recommend playing the first two before you start this one (at least play Dreamfall first). The review on here isn't fair at all. 2,5 stars? :O Don't listen to it. Go to the game's Steam page instead and read all the reviews <3

Good


[strong]Graphics/Animation: 5/5[/strong] The Devs aim was so high, but there are some technical issues and engines switching that spoiled their dreams, but overall they presented amazing detailed atmosphere and life into the game by lots background characters, changes, wide range of exploration. [strong]Design/Gameplaying: 3.5/5[/strong] The Game a strange start with small range of locations gives at a false feeling of the game's direction, but shortly the game reflects its magic and expands much. The gameplaying takes down curve with each chapter away frim it being objective, and then exploration seems suddenly exhausting, and smears the obstacles off the players mind, so when a puzzle is present, it didnt seem like fun. [strong]Music/Audio: 4.5/5[/strong] Classy and hits the story quite well. [strong] Story: 4/5[/strong] Its the strongest pillar of game that keeps one player crawling, the decision making and their consequences keep one on guard and adds the thrill over it, many questions unanswered but i wasnt really expecting much answers. [strong] Puzzles: 1/5[/strong] If could say (and i will be generous) there are 2 puzzles each chapter, that makes out 10 puzzles of 20-25 hours of gameplaying. [strong]Total Score: 72/100[/strong]
