Adventure Game Scene of the Day - Monday 08 September 2014

I’ve been playing the 1st chapter of The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief (2013) for a few hours now & loving it! I like the plot so far, the characters, which for the most part are well voice acted, are interesting & some of the inventory puzzles I’ve found pleasingly challenging. The graphics look good & there are some impressive & quite exciting cut scenes too!

The first part is by far the best. Also Constable Zellner is great! Smile

Grin
Oh you would be surprised….The truth is that I am very selective of the adventures I play.

(Your question though, made me have a look of all the titles released in 2013 and 2014. More games added to my “to play” list).

The REAL question is - did you, Karloff, played all adventures that take place on a train? Did you finish Murder on the Orient Express and The Raven, Karloff? I did! (Well, not The Raven)

This is a reminder that I never got to play the 3rd episode… This is one game that didn’t need episodes.

I thought it was refreshing that the protagonist Constable Zellner is middle-aged, balding & overweight but at the same time so likeable - yes! he’s a great character!

That was a little disappointing to read but ‘fore-warned is fore-armed’ so I’m sure I’ll enjoy the next Chapter because of my now low expectation of it!

I really don’t like games being produced in episodic form as you never know if the next one will materialise but can see from a financial point of view it helps the developers. But no matter with this one as I waited until it was finished & bought all 3 Chapters together! - has anyone got to the end of the 3rd?

I have played the whole game, and it is sort of a hit & miss game.
There are many things I liked about it, Constable Zellner in particular, but also much that I didn’t like, but I won’t destroy anything for you by going into details about it.

There is also a eGraphic Novel (that’s what they call it) that sort of works as a prologue for the game, which I actually found more enjoyable than the actual game Confused
You can play it here.

So there are THREE games in the Orient Express? I didn’t know that! Yep, I’ve played the other two. Smile

Are you also interested in my experience with adventures on board a ship? I’ll post a pic from one of them tomorrow.

Isn’t it remarable that I asked my question before you posted about Titanic in the other thread!

I thought you read my post first! I asked it one minute before your post here (go check it!)

I’m happy to hear some positive thoughts on it. I’ve wanted to play it because of the who-dun-it, but I’ve held of purchasing because of the weak reviews.
I really should pick it up. After all I’ve played through all the Poirot games, even though I did not particularly enjoy their gameplay (or story writing in AttWN).

     

I play story-heavy games, watch animation, anime, B-movies, disaster movies, sci-fi movies and crime shows and try to write about it all on my blog: Snark, pedantry and random geekery
