The Story is an Absolute Fairy Tale that takes the Hero from his Doubts of being a bad Omen into Discovering the good of himself, which makes it Unique in a way,considering his actions through the Games getting from being Pretty Mean until he becomes so Tendering and Caring, is very well written .
The Graphics i wouldn’t say more than it is more Beautiful than The Whispered World itself, which is enough for whom played TWW to Connect/Imagine how great it is, and what makes it better is the variations of Color’s Contrast from a one Scene/screen to the other .
The Animations really would have been better but considering the obvious caring of the developers towards all other elements and the (obvious) Low Budget control, i must admit it (the Animations) severed the game right well, i am with spending money on the creation of the Puzzles crafting rather than some cutscenes , the prefect Lipsing and an ideal characters Movements.
The Voice Acting all through the games is top notch and specially of Nuri’s (i would love to see the women behind that Voice because she really touched me with her laughs and cries and soothing voice) i really fell in love with Nuri . the only thing that kinda annoyed me was Geron’s (the hero) only when he gave his Descriptions towards the surroundings and the inventory’s ...etc!;...his Tone suddenly/strangely changes from the playable character into a narrator’s , but except from that his dialogues were Superb , and all the other NPCs voices were also Great as well. even the Narration between the chapter was really top notch.. so i can not dare to complain (overally).
The Music is really Sensational and Touching i used to leave the Musical theme(at the Main page) almost always every time i start the game playing until it finishes and then continue my Game or restore one, and the music accompanied the playing is the same as well so its not continues and disappears but i guess that was for the good so the player would not get bored of it . i really ought to get the sound Track .
The Gameplaying is very smooth, from moving around , selecting Inventory Objects and interacting with the surroundings and NPCs, but though it is still not the best of Daedalic’s Adventures, maybe i can say its mainly because the limited Puzzle Screens provided in each part until you can progress and move to another Chapter/area, and the worst of that ,mant parts consisted only of one SINGLE Puzzle screen! .
At Last about the game Difficulty players should not expect it to be similar to TWW or ANB, the game puzzles or as Straight Forward STILL Fun and Nicely and Logically crafted.
Time Played: 5-10 hours
