Review of Syberia 3

Rating by Hristovski posted on Oct 16, 2018

Mixed feelings

First of all, it's oh, so good to hear Kate's and Oscar's voice, after all these years... I've missed them so, so much. The artwork is amazing, as ever.

But... Other than that, everything else is... somehow wrong.
The hardware requirements are too damn high, the gameplay is poor and the game overall is just one big plot hole after another...
The story revolves around the seven dwarves and their Chocobo pets and all of the characters' behavior is just weird, they do so many illogical things.

Review of Myst V: End of Ages

Rating by My Dune posted on Oct 13, 2018

The characters have been animated, not filmed.

I have not played Uru yet, but this must be the easiest in the Myst series. The puzzles are not immediately easy, but you know quite quickly what the intention is and how to solve them. I was immediately disappointed in the graphics. The characters have been animated, not filmed. I do not know what the reason is, but unfortunately that was a big damper for me. I absolutely enjoyed myself and recommend the game to everyone. Even after so many years since the game has been released. Myst is in my top best adventure games.

Review of Another Sight

The first thing you immediately think of, is Alice in Wonderland

The first thing you immediately think of, is Alice in Wonderland. A girl named Kit that looks exactly like Alice who ends up in a fairytale like world. The world is really beautiful and the story is okay. To get to the end, you have to solve arcade-like puzzles by having Kit and a cat work together. My problem with the game is the gameplay controls. For a game where you have to climb and jump a lot at the right time, the controls are often very difficult, so puzzles take unnecessarily long to do. I also had to replay chapters regularly because, for example, the cat could no longer come to Kit. Also the AI of the soldiers you have to circumvent are often left in one place so that you can not get any further. That has cost me a lot of extra time.

Review of Alice: Behind The Mirror

Alice: Behind The Mirror

This is a fun and very challenging game. However, the hints could be a bit more helpful. For example, Alice must follow a map through a maze to visit the Queen of Hearts. If you are stuck and click Hints, it only tells you to find a way through the maze. Not too helpful, although in other parts, the Hints will tell you where you need to go next to find something, which can be very helpful. For example, Alice must find an hourglass for the Mad Hatter. If you click on Hints, it will tell you that it can be found in the Drawing Room.

Review of Lamplight City

Rating by MoonBird posted on Sep 27, 2018

Acceptable in most areas, but not great

Lamplight City is quite a charming little game, that is pleasure to look at and listen to. Unfortunatly, there are some drawbacks, that prevent it to never really realizing its great potential.

The main problem is, that there is actually nothing to really do in this game. It's an interactive novel in the true sense of the word. It's click - dialogue - click - dialogue - change of location - click - dialogue... The game doesn't even provide an inventory, so practically you can't use anything to anywhere!

Now, usually I don't think that games can contain too much dialogue, but this time I ...actually did. Though i'm not really certain is it the amount of it, or the fact that the conversations are unimaginative and quite pointless in many occations. This combined to the interactive novel -concept, makes this matter even more pressing.

The voice acting is okay for the most part, but it certainly isn't the shining virtue of this game. Some characters are actually quite painful to listen to, and, unfortunately Bill is one of them, and we'll hear him a LOT. Best actor is the one providing the voice for Addy. She's emotinal and vibrant.

The best score of Lamplight City comes certainly from the heartwarming vintage graphics and nice soundwork. The cases are interesting enough, but the detective playground is appallingly small, and the conversation choises really tend to take away rather than give, like the game's official reviewer said.

In the end, its a nice game with overflowing amount of dialogue and nothing to actually do, but on the other hand, its certainly easy on the eyes and ears.

Review of Transference

Rating by My Dune posted on Sep 19, 2018

Short but very well made!

Usually I do not like short adventure games, but this is very well made and I advise everyone who loves horror/psychological thrillers to play it! Everything looks very good and all the sounds coming at you give it a tremendously exciting atmosphere. All the great voice acting blown me away. It really makes you feel like you've seen and experienced it all in real life. My head is still spinning.

Time Played: 1-2 hours

Review of Myst IV: Revelation

Rating by My Dune posted on Sep 18, 2018

Even after 14 years

Even after 14 years this game still looks great and is definitely one of the best adventure game I have ever played. In the meantime I have played quite a lot ...... really a lot!.

I must also say that this has been the hardest game I have ever played. I managed to solve the game WITHOUT a walkthrough, but it has taken me quite a while. Over 8 months and I would not know how many hours I spent on this, but I think more than 120 hours all together. There were a few puzzles where I have been stuck for a long time and went back every now and then to see if I have forgotten something or suddenly see something differently.

Nevertheless, it was all very worthwhile and now it is time to start the next part ...... wish me luck!

Time Played: Over 20 hours
Difficulty: Very Hard
