Review of The Perils of Man

Not perfect, but good enough


Found the game very glichy(cutscene's, gameplay, sounds), but it didnt bother me that much. It's short I agree, but I don't think it should have been a lot longer also. For the story I think the length is just right. I would have liked a bit more challenging puzzles though.

Could have been a great adventure game


Very nice short story with a surprising plot. Everything runs very smoothly and looks great. Very nice acting, voice acting and soundtracks. For the diehard adventure gamers, this isn't the game for you though. There is only 1 puzzle if you can even call it "that". Gameplay reminds me of games like 'The Walking Dead'. You will only have to click, click & slide and rapid clicking to get to the end. I really hope real adventure games will look like this in the near future.

Review of Discworld Noir

Brilliant


I just finished replaying this magnificent game and it's still great after so many years. The voice acting and the dialogs are the best of any adventure game ever made. It sure deserves a 5 out of 5 stars. Brilliant game, one of the best ever made.

Review of Anna's Quest


Rating by Kareman posted on Sep 16, 2016


A very good game, except for a couple of seconds. Sadly they were the most important ones.


Before I start complaining I must say that this is a very good game right up until the ending. It has a surprisingly deep, dark and complex story and the main character is excellent, voice acting included. But I could have done without the silliness. Not humour, that is important, in small amounts, in such a dark story. But I can't think of a single story which mixes silliness and tragedy successfully, and this is no exception. And now a rant about endings ... WARNING: SPOILERS I REALLY MEAN IT – THERE ARE SOME HUGE ONES HERE! YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ENJOY THE GAME IF YOU READ THIS FIRST. ... where this game sadly and disappointingly took the easy way out. Earlier in the game Anna is warned by a wizard that if she cannot convince Winfriede to stop what she is doing, she will have to destroy her. This is something Anna says she is not willing to do, even to someone so (seemingly) purely evil who has caused her and her loved one nothing but pain and suffering. So the game is preparing us for this classic moral dilemma. And in the last chapter we get a brilliant flashback to Winfriedes childhood where we learn what made her what she is and why she is doing what she's doing. This is my favourite part of the game and it does a very good job of explaining the main villain, who up to this point has seemed 100% to-the-core bad. Then at the very end, after Winfriede has declined Anna's offer of redemption and attacks her, we get the cheapest of all cop-outs, known from many stories and movies: The Accidental Death of the Villain. Problem solved, Moral Dilemma conveniently sidestepped and everything is OK. I mean what is the point of creating such a deep, dark and complex story, complete with the villains nuanced back story, to in the end just have her die in an accident, independent of anything that has happened earlier in the story. Sure the accident happens because she attacks the hero, but the accident itself is still purely by chance and clearly not intended by the hero. So yes, it would have been more honest if Anna had to kill the villain. Or let her live, putting herself and probably everyone else in danger (she would go to prison first obviously, but it's doubtful if that would have been much of a hindrance to such a powerful witch). Or preferably come up with a surprising solution that both avoids murder and makes the world a better place. All of these are better than the non-solution chosen here. So to all stories and movies who use this cheap trick to spare their hero from having to make a tough decision: Please stop doing this, it really undermines the rest of the story.
