Review of Neofeud


Rating by SamuelGordon posted on Aug 13, 2018


Cyberpunk on acid!


It's another oneman-made adventure game and this one really stands out!

Good:
- The style of the game. You can feel alot of effort went into making it.
- Great soundtrack, it sounds alot like Deus Ex.
- Christian miller, the creator did the voiceacting of the protagonist and the robotic ally. Now the protagonist was decent but the voice of Proto-j(esus) was amazing. The Six Billion Dollar Bawler sounded like a pissed off hilarious gangbanger robotic teenager. He just nailed the voice, it was perfect!
- Great action scenes and puzzles.
- Interesting characters, locations and technology.
- Cyberpunk on acid = I don't think you are meant to take everything seriously. I mean robots being pregnant, old telephone booths in an era where consciousness gets created, hacked nicotine ciragettes,etc.. it's just REALLY WEIRD and gets helluvalot weirder in the end. But it just WORKS. Still it does have some serious and disturbing scenes.

Bad:
- The story starts in the right direction but ends up being generic.
- Lots of the dialogues are huge blocks of texts. It can get tiresome when you don't hear short human responses but speeches about the inequality of the world (99% vs 1%).
- The allies (4) can get in your way when you need to click something. Yeah you can tell them to get out of your way but it's annoying to have to do this everytime.
- Pop culture references are just weird and don't work because i still think it's happening in the future while it isn't (it's the year 2038 in the game..i know right) and they talk about game of thrones,bruce willis, Mr Robot,etc..Also parodies on names like Clinton, Bush.

Conclusion: Amazing game! I love cyberpunk theme games and Neofeud has def. some Altered Carbon & deus ex influences. Anyways, check it out! 4,5/5. A sequel is being worked on, so hooray!

Review of Repentant


Rating by SamuelGordon posted on Aug 12, 2018


Short but REALLY intense!!


Wow what a ride! Oliver, the wife beater from the prequel "little kite" is back! He's not the 2 dimensional cliché bore like in the previous game. Repentant is pretty short (1-2 hours) but it's so intense! You just gotta know what happens next.It could've easily be an episodic game, with different characters like Christina. The music,art and voice acting is top notch. Anyways, i really recommend it. 4/5

Now something else, warning spoilers ahead!

I love LOVE the ambigiousness mood present in the game, yeah i'm talking about the shopkeeper! During and after the robbery fiasco you find some horrifying information about him. An article about child abuse in the 60's pinned on his pinboard and pictures of young pretty girls (WTF?). Now you also find a picture of a kid with his mother and written on the back 1968. So i'm thinking he was abused by his mother and became this monster. Or he's MUCH older and that's his wife on the picture and he's the child abuser.He also talks about "bodies" in his phone conversation. He did try to rape Christina, so...MAN BRRRRR! Amazingly done Anatolii!

Cannot wait for a sequel or another one of his games, i'm def a fan :).

Review of Little Kite


Rating by SamuelGordon posted on Aug 12, 2018


Hardcore


Good:
- Lots of great puzzles and some really hard ones. Hardcore adventure games will have a great time.
- Some pixel hunting (you can use the hotspot,i never do), i kind of miss this in today's adventure games.
- Beautiful art,locations,animations.
- Haunting musical score.
- Lots of one man made games leave an imprint/impression on the player. Little kite is no exception.


Bad:
- Too short
- No voice acting but you get used to it.
- Predictable story and abrupt ending
- Shallow cliché characters like the stepdad
- Bad translations
- Some far out puzzles like changing a lightbulb of a traffic light


Conclusion: i absolutely loved it! The puzzles really made this game. There is a sequel called Repentant, so it's not over yet :). 4/5.

Review of Life Is Strange: Before the Storm – Episode Three: Hell Is Empty


Rating by SamuelGordon posted on Aug 11, 2018


Doomed by canon


It was fun playing with Chloe all the while knowing her relationship with Rachel is doomed. Both of them are. The journey was interesting : the manipulation by Rachel, Chloe's love for her, the choices, etc.. Ultimately the story is weak but it's still worth it to see the endcredits and laura's i mean Rachel's disappearance. Oh the bonus episode was great! Seeing young max saying goodbye to Chloe was heartbreaking.

Conclusion : Is it worth it, yeah if you are a fan. If not you can skip it, you are not missing much.

Review of Unavowed

Urelai hopes for a sequel


Good:

-Interesting story,characters and locations.
-Great voiceacting & music
-Refined and polished game mechanics : no more right clicking to look at objects.
-The chemistry between the protagonist/antagonist.
-Unpredictable consequences from making choices and believe me, there are some difficult choices to make.
-Choose your own party: i avoided the females because they were real annoying.
-High fantasy mixed with the world done right. Reminds me of the Dresden Files.

Bad:
-An annoying bug in the bar location, leaving makes the game freeze/crash. i circumvented it by double clicking on the exit.
-The antagonist's behaviour contradicts his endgoal: he cares for nothing, so why go all to the trouble?
-Knocking sound in some songs= if you wear headphones you feel the walls knocking which can become annoying.
-Hardly any puzzles.
-Choices do not impact the ending. You can get all endings by choosing the right answer/action when facing the endboss.
-Anticlimatic boss confrontation

Conclusion: It's a great adventure game, filled with high fantasy creatures and down to earth people. How they mix leads to all destructive and interesting scenarios. It's up to you to fix it, make the right choices or not..that's what it's all about. 4/5

Review of The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker


Rating by SamuelGordon posted on Aug 2, 2018


Quantum typing


The story is interesting, the characters are amazing and i've read the killer is chosen at random making it harder to find the right one but if you look carefully at the clues it directs you to YOUR killer. But near the ending i didn't care about the killer, i was more interested in the fates of the characters and the loose ends. Who is the little girl? Am i Dr Dekker resurrected from the dead? Is it all lies and is Jaya actually my therapist? Anyways, great stuff. Also love the casual patients like the quantum gambler and the doorway teleporter.

The game has it charms but it's ultimately ruined by trial and error gameplay that leads to a frustrating and exhausting experience : the input words need to be chosen carefully e.g: using "kill" instead of "murder" is a no go. You are basically forced to use the hint system to go around this killing any motivation. You also risk abusing it to end the typing madness(maybe that's the point?).

So in conclusion, i would recommend it if you like FMV games and great characters. The gameplay is really bad though. If you despise typing all the time i would skip it and watch the youtube playthroughs. 3 stars.

Review of Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter


Rating by SamuelGordon posted on Jul 31, 2018


Shallow Detective


The Devil's daughter is a stepdown from it's predecessor. I didn't like the heavy oriented action scenes as some of them were unpractical with a mouse/keyboard (balancing). The puzzles are great, some hard ones. The cases aren not that interesting nor are the characters. I kind of miss the obvious deduction you can make like in the previous game. This one was full of "let's pin it on that guy" scenarios. I also particulary did not like the supernatural direction the game takes : Holmes entering a vision of the ancient pyramid, spirits talking,etc...The devil's daughter barely has a general storyline.

So in short, if you like puzzles and can stomach the annoying action scenes (you can skip the tedious ones, but do not skip the big important ones like in the pyramid: them's some hardcore Tex Murphy situations^^) i say try it out. If you are expecting interesting characters/stories you will be disappointed. I give it a 6/10.

Oh yeah i do not like the new voice actor/looks of Holmes/Watson.
