Midnight Nowhere has just been put through the mill at The Adrenaline Vault, receiving 2/5 stars:

 

"Although somewhat original in its overall design, Midnight Nowhere fails to accomplish its objectives. The foul language, twisted humor, nudity, gore and violence are beyond what most gamers will appreciate, unless Postal is your idea of fun. When compounded by the obscure hotspots, redundant puzzles, archaic control system and strictly linear gameplay, the audience for which this offering would be a treat becomes really small. It’s as if someone dared the developers to break all the limits of civility and to maximize the shock value, but in doing so, they forgot about the coherence needed to make a recreational title succeed. For some of you, my notion of what’s enjoyable might be too narrowly defined, but for the rest of us, Midnight Nowhere is way out of bounds."

CNN.com has just finished playing Syberia II:

 

"Syberia II lacks some of the magic found in the original game, but it still proves to be a fun and rewarding adventure.

 

The story will keep players interested in Syberia II. Does this island exist? Is Hans delirious, or are there really mammoths that roam across blue grass? Why is Kate really along for the ride? Will she return to her old life in New York when the quest is completed?"

The demo for developer Deja Vu Worlds' upcoming PC first person title Alida, can now be had from Got Game Entertainmet's site. Alternate download mirrors are at Gamer's Hell.

"This intricate first person 3D graphical adventure game created by Australian game developer, musician, and artist Cos Russo is set on Alida, an abandoned island theme park ten miles out at sea. Originally built and inhabited by a wildly successful rock band, the island is actually a gigantic guitar, replete with wondrous and ornate graphics, unique and bizarre locations.

When the band split up, Alida was abandoned. But, now, several years later, the band’s manager suggests a reunion on Alida. Soon thereafter band member Arin leaves for the island and is not heard from again. Players must search the island for the missing musician and bring him home.

Featuring clever and thought-provoking puzzles, atmospheric ambient effects, and an entrancing original music score, in their search for Arin, players will soon find themselves lost in 'Alida'."

Alida was originally released for Mac in Australia last year. For more on this title (including the trailer) please visit the publisher site.
