Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Saturday 31 August 2013
Another Cryo game, another train wreck. Odyssey: The Search for Ulysses (2000) is a game that should have been easy to get right. Greek mythology is so utterly awesome that all you have to do is stay out of its way and it will sell itself, yet Cryo rose to the occasion and managed to make it as painful an experience as possible.
There really isn’t anything redeemable about this game as far as I am concerned, but there’s the main character talking to Charon in today’s scene. It’s too bad he isn’t handing him all the copies of this game to take across the river Styx where nobody living will be able to play it. That said, I’ve played worse games in the last 35 years…
