Latest reviews for adventure games

Embracelet

review Embracelet

This lovely, low-poly Norwegian island adventure is a storytelling gem that outshines most of its bigger-budgeted contemporaries.

Evan’s Remains

review Evan’s Remains

This lovely puzzle-platformer is a charming blend of story and gameplay, at least until it becomes buried in exposition toward the end.

Fire Escape

review Fire Escape

Rather than rising to the level of Rear Window, this melodramatic apartment-spying adventure is content to stop at an hour of replayable camp fun.

The Revenge of Johnny Bonasera

review The Revenge of Johnny Bonasera

While the humour and violence is often tasteless, this scrappy little four-part indie adventure pays back an early investment by getting better as it goes along.

When the Past Was Around

review When the Past Was Around

This lovely, wordless adventure won't pose much challenge but presents an emotionally touching story about love and loss, and all the strings attached.

The Signifier

review The Signifier

This surreal first-person mystery adventure might leave your head spinning, but it conveys a cleverly layered sci-fi story through a distinctive visual style and unusual gameplay mechanics.

Syberia: The World Before - first look

preview Syberia: The World Before - first look

Welcome to Elk

review Welcome to Elk

This unique adventure based on collected real-life experiences should be warmly received by those who enjoy emotionally powerful story-driven experiences.

There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension

review There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension

There is no review of a non-game that isn't a brilliantly hilarious deconstruction of various genres while still not remaining a delightfully clever outside-the-box adventure at heart.

The Sierra Adventure: The Story of Sierra On-Line giveaway

contest The Sierra Adventure: The Story of Sierra On-Line giveaway

The complete written history of Sierra (or as much as will cram into 361 pages) will soon be at the fingertips of five lucky winners!

Investi-Gator: The Case of the Big Crime

review Investi-Gator: The Case of the Big Crime

There's little evidence of challenge, but if what's missing in your life is some whimsical fun, you may just find it in this short but sweet animal detective mystery.
