Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Saturday 17 January 2015

I don’t know of any adventures set in the second world war, so my expectations of the Austrian adventure Undercover Operation Wintersun (2007) were high. It’s a linear 3rd-person spy story featuring a British scientist who is sent to Germany to find out if the Nazis are developing a nuclear bomb device. The first few scenes and puzzles were promising, but I lost interest after a while. A medicocre game. Nothing I’d call atrocious, except perhaps the uninspired voiceacting. Nothing very good either.  Frown

There’s this little bit Karlok:

and Black Dahlia is set in the time period if not directly involved with the war itself.

Yeah, that’s an incredible fact - you couldn’t count FPS and strategy games about WWII, but when it comes to adventures, the hand of a Three Fingered Jack would suffice to count them all.

What’s more - they all seem to suck (well apart from semi-WW2 Black Dahlia and TimeQuest). Also, isn’t the intro to The Whispered World 2 set in WW2?


Anyway, I always wanted to try Undercover, but keep reading how it’s “average”. I might try it. There’re are some “average” games which turned out to be my favorites. Tongue

I know I enjoyed the game at the time but I don’t remember much about it now so it certainly doesn’t feature in my top favourite games. I like the screenshot & it’s just reminded me of that constant annoying ‘model pose’ of the female Anne Taylor (I’d forgotten her name & just looked that up!) - I’m not a ‘b****’ really & can’t remember whether it suited her motives or character but it’s not very ‘spyey’ & didn’t seem to fit her role - why couldn’t she stand properly! ( She must have imagined that she was in a James Bond film! Laughing  )
