Martin Mystere (aka Crime Stories)

Postby warmbear » Wed Jul 19, 2006 10:29 pm

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 old, hormonal males, and do not care to look at a woman with a size 2 waist and a size 88 bust with cleavage to her navel (the reporter - she looks actually deformed). Also, we do not expect for the wife of the main character to frankly look like a hooker.

Because of this I feel that this game is not good for children.

Also, the cutscenes look to be circa 1990, and make the game appear very dated.

Gameplay: 9
Graphics: 5 (points lost for absurd, graphically depicted female characters & for poorly realized cutscenes)
Interface: 10
Storyline: 10

Total 34 out of 40 points

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 manner would be seeking reduction surgery asap to alleviate the severe back problems such a structure would surely create.

Terry Thomas has a line in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" in which he more or less states: "......this totally infantile pre-occupation with bosoms, your whole national economy would collapse if your women stopped wearing bras"... I'll buy that...

As I mentioned previously, The professor's wife looked and acted like a street-walking, card carrying bimbo. Not very realistic for a professor's wife, imho.
