Review of Remedy: A Carol Reed Mystery by SamuelGordon

Stars - 35

Short but Sweet


I finally got around to playing Remedy, the reason i didn’t was because of the sound (it didn’t work in windows 7 and comp xp didn’t work either). So i did the next best thing, i downloaded Windows XP mode for Windows 7 (basically emulation) and started the game. I’m saying this because my experience might’ve been different because of this.

The sound was choppy, but lovely. I absolutely love the series’s music, it can be so haunting and beautiful. Seeing Carol in the beginning is interesting, i didn’t know how she started her detective thing, well i do know. Puzzles are great and actually not that hard. Everything just flows. The hymn puzzle was fun:) and Carol’s description of hardware was hilarious ( it’s a spaceship LOL!!). The story is average and kinda uninteresting. It had a rushed ending but personally i do not play the carol series for the story.Sure some are interesting or borderline decent but it’s the environments and puzzles that really define the series: the houses, the backyards, the spooky places, and it’s all real!

Good:
-Great music&mood;
-Real environments
-logical and fun puzzles

Bad:
-Too short
-Uninteresting story,cliché villain& rushed ending
-choppy sound (could be because of my WXP emulation)

It give it 3,5 stars!
