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.

This isn’t really the right site to be reviewing this. It’s not an adventure game.

Sefir and zane, I’m not going to post anything that details the supposed spoiler in even greater detail. Even with warnings, it’s too easy to read them anyway, which would defeat the very purpose of your complaints.

But I’ve removed the short phrase in the review that seems to represent your main issue, since the section stands perfectly fine without it.

Having done that, I’ll nevertheless point out that viewing plot points in hindsight is entirely different than having something actually spoiled ahead of time. The main issue in question still doesn’t strike me as anything that would remotely affect my enjoyment of the game, and nor did the writer, obviously.

The spoiler problem to me is the last sentence of the 4th paragraph. That is not something i wouldv wanted to know before playing the game, though a person who hasnt played the game might not pick up on whats being said there.. but its a nice surprise in the game.
It is indeed a very good game.

I haven’t played the game, and nothing in the review feels like a spoiler of any consequence whatsoever. (And if it did, it never would have made it through.)
