Hmm. It’s not City of Lost Children, is it?

Hehe… I played that one, but…

Journey to the Center of the Earth

That’s it! I started it, and didn’t think it was a stinker. Also, I remember it was released after the golden age, with few standouts here and there (The Longest Journey, Syberia…) and thought it was above average for that time.

It probably wasn’t as bad as I remember. It’s one of the few games I got to play with my sister, and we had fun at its expense. I do recall it having questionable voice acting. And I found it odd that you can only click on the path to walk to the other side of the screen.

I’ve never been a big fan of Syberia, but I’d say it’s slightly under par compared to it. JourneyttCotE is way better than something like Keepsake though.

Hmm. The Dream Machine?

(I thought Syberia was overrated and Syberia 2 and JTTCOTE were both pretty stinky. But with certain reservations I really liked Keepsake)

Nope not the Dream Machine.

I always thought Syberia was a bit dull, and I never got the hype. All it had going for it was the lack of better games being released (excluding the Myst games). Keepsake for me was complete drudgery, I don’t think there was anything I really liked about it. But to each his own. It is interesting to me how different peoples tastes can be.

Now for something a little less rocky

Tale of a Hero!

I thought it was Aura, Quern… or some other Myst clone.

Yes that’s it!
It does have Myst-esque background graphics.

I wrote an extensive review of the game. I’m sure none of you bothers to read it, so I’ll just present my conclusion from that text:

“Tale of a Hero is a game which is hard to recommend - it’s fairly long, it’s challenging enough, but there’s nothing here to standout above your average run-of-the-mill adventure game.”

It was few years ago, and from this perspective I think the game deserves a chance, though it’s far from the best Future Games’ offerings.

I’m playing it for the first time. So far I’ve enjoyed it, but I can see why you’d call it run-of-the-mill. And it has some English translation problems.
For example it might say: “Bucket has water” instead of “The bucket has water in it.”

But it has nice graphics, and fair puzzles so far.
