I agree, Warmbear. Thanks for the review. You're welcome.. I guess that for all it's beautiful backgrounds, and expansive maps it was somewhat of a slight disapointment overall, as I had really been looking forward to it, and kept being let down in small ways.. But it really was not terrible/horrid...

Keepsake

I have been playing this, and just finished it. Note: Although this game was designed to run on WinXP, the video portion of the game kept freezing up & then releasing thru the whole game (cutscenes were unaffected, as was sound). On a game that insists to install itself completely to a harddrive, th...

Yes, I almost mentioned the 9 man morris puzzle, which is one of my least favorite puzzle types, as being very difficult.. It took me awhile to get past it as well, as you had to beat the guard 2 out of 3 times, and the game randomizes the puzzle. I found that I saved the game after the guard won th...

I just opened this again to look at it quickly, and although the focus is somewhat soft in places, I would not say that it is terribly pixelated. I can easily read the name plates on the doors in the museum, as well as notes on desks, etc.. The FMV sequences are fairly crisp. I am running 600x800 sc...

Drowned God

Another ever-so-exciting review from yours truly.... Drowned God: More point 'n' click goodness (no keyboard jumping required - YAY!)... First of all, this is an older game, designed to run on Win 9x. I was able to get it to run under WinXP without too much trouble, but I had to apply a couple of (o...

Temujin

Time for another quickie review by moi... (There are all sorts of long reviews out there on games, so I only post short reviews here.) Temujin: First a quick note: Although this is an older game, it ran flawlessly on my XP machine without a great deal of fuss. I believe that this game was designed t...

Regarding the voice acting (which you are taking exception to here).. I am somewhat hearing impaired, and I don't pay all that much attention to the voice acting in many games (I always turn on subtitles).. Usually there is background music, etc., which makes the voice acting difficult for me to und...

Voyage (Jules Verne)

At the beginning, this appears to be your standard point-n-click adventure. Overall, the game is well constructed. The graphic interface is straight forward. The game's graphics are pleasing to the eye, and fit the game well, although the cutscenes, which look like entries in a book, will throw you ...

size 2 waist and a size 88 bust with cleavage to her navel I would say that would look somewhat deformed. :shock: It surely does.. I am no prude at all, but this just looked ridiculous. She must have size 1 shoes, because her feet cannot possibly grow in that much shade... Any woman built in such a...

I will try to clarify the interface control problem.. In game, the right mouse button is not assigned to bring up your inventory, nor change your action type (either of these actions is more or less accepted gaming practice). In this game, the right mouse button is used to sometimes "look" closer at...

Martin Mystere (aka Crime Stories)

This is a fairly cute adventure game. The hand drawn graphics do not detract from the gameplay. No unfair puzzles noted. No pixel hunting noted. The GUI is straightforward. No unacceptable timed or action sequences. However .... Whomever did the artwork should realize that most of us are not 13 year...

NiBiRu - Most Dissappointing Ending

I just finished NiBiRu, and I have to say that I found the gameplay acceptable (no unfair puzzles), the storyline was good (except as noted below), there were no unwieldy "action" sequences, BUT there were a number of instances of pixel hunting, some of which were extreme. There also were a number o...

I've only played Secrets Can Kill , Final Scene , and Stay Tuned for Danger , and frankly I'm not impressed with any of them. The puzzles aren't bad, but the rest seemed really hokey to me. FGM I have not played any of this series, as by their very nature, they seemed to really be appropriate for g...
