Some people may hate the switch from 2D to 3D, but you have to think realistically. At this point, adventure games were on life support. Do you really think they would try to sell a 2D cartoony point and click game to an audience with no patience for that type of thing. I’m just grateful this game got made. Controlling with my keyboard was not as easy as controlling with my mouse, but the puzzles and the story made me forget all about it. I don’t know why people complain about the graphics. They’re beautiful! If anything, it looks just as much like a cartoon as the first two, but this time, they took their cues from Pixar instead of Disney.
The block puzzles did seem like a cop out to replace inventory puzzles, but I didn’t hate them, and sometimes they were kind of fun.
The ending is slightly less abrupt than the one in BSII, but I guess I’ll have to play the next game in order for the story to continue. It was less than fitting, but more than unsatisfying.
The story is amazing. It feels like a movie, only way better than most movies.
If you loved the first two and aren’t against controlling a game with something other than a mouse, you’ll love this game.
