I found this to be a really nice, pleasant, long game. There’s not a lot to do or that needs to be done, but it was addicting and relaxing and had about 12 hours of play… Visually pretty, nice story… I’d like to see how much can be changed by playing differently.

I immediately loved Sadwick’s lispy awkward speech and melancholic perception.  He was refreshingly different than any protagonist I’ve played.

This review surely can’t be referring to both parts of this game. Act one being so wonderful, Act two being so disappointing. It has been a long time since I’ve been left with such a displeasant taste, I truly found it a chore to complete towards the end when the story had diverged to such sci-fi cliche and the characters shadows of their earlier, mysterious selves.

I’m left with no confidence in Tim Schafers’ ability to produce a cohesive game. Brutal Legend was equally great at its start and fundamentally broken in its latter half.

I would never recommend anyone play this as anything more than a curiosity, or upto the thrilling half way point.

I liked it, especially the atmosphere, the acting and the hi-quality video and sound. The story has missed opportunities, could have been much more interesting, but still it keeps you hooked.

Also the gameplay is well thought, even if you can’t compare statements from two different persons, you can with some “clues” that gets added in the question bar (notebook image in the bar).

Characters: dull (except the hindi cybergirl),  underdeveloped (like the chino-style elder woman and the warden at Friar’s - Theoretically Blind got demoted into a militarist wan…*ehem*) and looking lost into one form of inexplicable brain malfunction or the other. Weaving their disjointed stories into a coherent storytime requires some very compassionate leaps in logic, almost coercive in nature. Forget about Dreamachines, people still believe in the farce of politics; how naive can you be to not see EVERY power structure is a grand cabal (even volunteering in partisan campaigns:\)?! Also, so many crude prompts to be an indiscriminate slut deserves to be labeled pansexualist propaganda. Cut that out and stick with rooster&cat;-type of humor coolness, Red Thread!

Scenery: 0 progress from the tantalizing facades of empty places of TLJ2

Puzzles: meh…

Game engine: A HOG! It is a huge disappointment to see the franchise selling out to graphics chips companies’ marketing. The previous engine looked better and could easily run on embeded GPU. In addition, the checkpoint-based saving scheme is another big negative point, because it precludes experimentation with different dialogue paths and sheer replay of specific scenes that the player might want to relive (about time games started coming with built-in screen capturing, BTW).

The only reason I might play the next chapters is because I’m curious to see how impossible the parade of hipsters and freaks, that supplanted April, Faith, the White Dragon, Brian and all the rest of the interesting past characters, is going to get.

This time round it’s been a long disappointing journey Frown

Can we just have April back as the main character and Zoe as a secondary character? Tongue

Having just completed the game (agree with the review/score along with incometrader, Sefir and Zane) and having read the review prior to Jackal editing I find I’m agreeing with Jackal. Although I was aware of what would be part of the story-line I found that I’d forgotten about that until I actually was at that juncture in the story. I’m putting it down to a very well scripted and paced game and I hope that Dane Krams continues, if not in this world, at least with another adventure game of the same quality and thoughtfulness.

I really liked this game and I’m a raving atheist. The Christian overtones were very heavy-handed and yeah the voice acting was a bit iffy but I wasn’t put off at all. The puzzles and general design were spot-on. A very playable game, with what I though was a very good, emotional story. You’ll never convert me to Chritianity with an adventure game but I had fun playing it.

After reading the review I’m surprised that it got three stars. But I also think it looks worth playing. It’s on my To Buy list.

Ah, blatant misrepresentation as joke, got it.

I’ll stop being “defensive” when people stop giving cause. It’s a very simple formula that some people simple refuse to accept.

Bye.

It was an ironic interpretation of the last parragraph. No need to be defensive as always, Jackal. The other part of the comment was also an ironic reflection of what happened with the fable in The Samaritan Paradox. Bye.

Say what now? There’s nothing that even remotely implies a crisis of faith here.

Now this is interesting: a game that causes a crysis of faith on the reviewer. On top of my pile right now. Somehow as you were describing it I was remembering “The Samaritan Paradox”, my favourite recent adventure with its flaws and all.
