The Divine Comedy review

Divine Comedy
Divine Comedy
Note: Though graded as a standalone adventure, The Divine Comedy is one of three installments bundled together in the Enter the Story trilogy.

No one can accuse Chris Tolworthy of lacking ambition. Having covered Victor Hugo’s classic novel Enter the Story purchase. For those with more conventional views of adventure gaming, however, the plodding nature of the subject matter and the confining design issues may make this one journey to leave untraveled.

 

Our Verdict:

Whilst an impressive artistic achievement, The Divine Comedy often feels too much ‘the book’ and not enough ‘the game’.

GAME INFO The Divine Comedy is an adventure game by Chris Tolworthy released in 2009 for PC. It has a Stylized art style and is played in a First-Person, Third-Person perspective.

The Good:
  • Stylish panoramic backgrounds
  • Two forms of built-in hint system
  • Musical score well suited to the setting
The Bad:
  • Extremely linear story progression still requires extensive backtracking
  • Often feels like a series of lectures rather than a game
