Lots of talking, easy puzzles, mediocre script, and lots of talking (again)


I am a point-and-click adventure fan since the 90s, and I waited this game for months, since the demo looked promising to me. But it was only a short and playable part of the game that hid its hideous face: talking and talking and talking. I can say that 70% of the talking is nothing to do with the game (ok, maybe less). Thanks to the game play, you can click mouse button and pass the dialogue, but my finger was cramped of clicking. The dialogue made no sense, the script was meh, humor was not there, and the puzzles (if you call them puzzles) were easy. After passing the point of no return, I played till the end just to finish the game.

i'm confused... what's going on?


first of all I love the graphics in this game… the world is beautiful and very interesting.

however… i am totally lost when it comes to the story… what’s happening? I have no idea what’s going on or where the story is going… a lot of it doesn’t make any sense. I find myself skipping through a lot of the dialogue because it’s not interesting and it goes on for way too long…

Story is what make these games good… hopefully the sequel (if there is one) will be better.

(G.E.F.Q!!) = Generic Eldritch Fetch Quest


Good
- Good voiceacting
- Great artwork & locations
- Decent length
- I really can’t think of anything else..how sad Frown

Bad:
- Boring puzzles and “fetch” quests. There are some puzzles that stand out in difficulty but honestly it’s all so forgettable.
- Generic Eldritch story with a terrible ending.
- Boring characters, except maybe Bob Olmstein. But yeah that also turns out in a major disappointment.
- Not funny.
- Where’s the memorable music?

Conclusion: if you are expecting something out of the golden age of adventure games you’ll be severly disappointed. The game’s not funny and more importantly NOT FUN. The story is a mess followed by “a buy the sequel ending to find out”. No thank you.
