Adventure Game coverage

Latest reviews for adventure games

Woven

review Woven

Though not a seamless experience, it's easy to cotton to this charming animal adventure in an open fabric world.

The Complex

review The Complex

While its gameplay is decidedly simple, this choice-driven FMV thriller is a riveting interactive movie with impressive production values and replayability.

Planet RIX-13

review Planet RIX-13

There's no escaping its short length and lack of challenge, but this lite sci-fi adventure provides a charming, quick-paced exploration of a retro-styled alien world.

The Blind Prophet

review The Blind Prophet

This grim and gritty religious-themed adventure nails its graphic novel-style aesthetic, but possesses too many gameplay and translation issues to fully recommend.

Nine Noir Lives hands-on

preview Nine Noir Lives hands-on

We got our paws on a short demo of the stylish upcoming comic-noir mystery, and so far it looks (and sounds) like the cat's meow.

Cutish

review Cutish

While some of its rough edges aren't quite so endearing, this challenging indie adventure is one of the better(ish) Myst-style puzzlers available in recent times.

Star Trek: The Next Generation – A Final Unity

flashback review Star Trek: The Next Generation – A Final Unity

Though it threatens to stall out early on, once it hits warp speed this 25-year-old sci-fi adventure proves faithful to its source material and provides an engaging point-and-click experience all around.

Interrogation: You will be deceived

review Interrogation: You will be deceived

This clever blend of dialogue-driven adventure with lite strategy and RPG elements has us convinced it's well worth checking out.

review Beautiful Desolation

The new isometric adventure from the creators of STASIS lives up to its name, presenting a gorgeous and imaginative future Earth with plenty of room left over for more worldbuilding.

Edgar: Bokbok in Boulzac

review Edgar: Bokbok in Boulzac

There's no real challenge here to be chicken of, just plenty of whimsical weirdness and a few pesky bugs in this quirky French adventure.

Other popular names for this genre are “graphic adventure” or “point and click adventure”, but these represent only part of a much broader, diverse range of games.
