Moebius: Empire Rising

I hated this game


This review was spot on for me in every way.  I wanted to like it but I couldn’t.  Rector is by far one of the most deplorable characters I’ve ever played. This was on my list of highly anticipated games of 2014 and all but one totally missed the mark and/or failed to meet expectations.  Moebius was not that exception.  It just dawned on me that I gave it a low rating 2yrs ago yet forgot to express to the world my utter contempt for Moebius: Empire Rising.  This review was brilliant.  Time stamp 5/29/2016 -that’s how much I detest it.

Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure

Still love Tex


Overall I enjoyed this game, despite the fact it became too much for me to finish (couldn’t bear the increasing intensity at the very end).  I found it to be all over the place which made it hard for any sort of immersion.  So it was easy for me to discard story resolution. Although I felt very disconnected, I love the characters and style, as it was very reminiscent of Tex games from back in the day. 

I gave it 3 stars because towards the end [POSSIBLE SPOILER: it became too dungeon hunting and scary]. While I understand this does not put off many players, being scared/anxious/worried are emotions I don’t enjoy and opt out of when there is a choice to do so.  When I was younger, I liked those elements (to some extent). 

I also did not like the fact that I was bombarded with puzzles, most of which I enjoyed but a few (2) that thoroughly killed my enthusiasm for completing the story and further destroyed any previously held ambitions to play additional story arcs and endings.  The puzzles, I feel should logically tie into the story and most of the time I found them to be there for the sake of “eeking” out additional gameplay hours.  That is, however, in accordance with other Tex games from what I recall so it wasn’t unexpected just e x h a u s t i v e.

I would’ve liked to have seen an option to switch from gamer mode to casual, like in the previous games.  Playing on gamer mode there isn’t a way to bypass any of the more annoying elements.  I experienced only one glitch and it was minor.  The actors were great and I was excited to play this game.  For the most part, I think the developers did a great job.

I never played this game, it is not my style or preferred game format.  Not sure how this wound up on my list with 4 stars.

Interesting Plot


I enjoyed the series for the story/plot only.  The character dialog and dynamic, for me, never came across as plausible and oftentimes I deplore their flip and snarky comments/humor completely opposite the severity of the situations at hand.  I actually enjoyed the break of having to solve the stereotypical adventure game puzzles via the hands-off resolution approach taken, in opposition to many adventure gamers out there I’m sure.  It afforded me focus on the actual storyline.  Despite the lack of character depth, especially the protagonist(s), made the experience quite superficial.  If they’re not taking the situation at hand seriously, why should I?  I welcomed the break of marital triviality that the ending I played afforded. Although many aspects of the game was unbelievable to absurd, I did find interest with the plot.  Thankfully Sam was NOT present in this installment.  I find her more unbearable than Nina and Max.

Animation, game play, locations were stunning and scoring was another hit for me.  I would’ve appreciated more time in locations and less linearity, but it didn’t detract from the overall experience.  It was an easy game which I am thankful for because more time with Nina and/or Max would’ve kept me from playing it through completion.
