For the merely curious, Anachronox is a wonderful game, much more like Deus Ex than the disaster Daikatana. In fact, Anachronox is shaping up to be one of my favorite RPGs ever. It plays like a traditional console RPG - explore a large world, fight lots of monsters in simple, turn-based combat, and a wonderful story. The characters are pretty much "pre-generated", meaning you will have less control over creating their skills and strengths like in Balder's Gate, but instead you are rewarded with a wonderful, tight story, with each new party member adding something very interesting to the game.
Anachronox is an awesome RPG where it counts - awesome story, strong characters, a huge and fascinating world, and irrisistable charm. There is so much personality in every inch of this game, even humor. (Like Wackmaster Jack's, "Where the Elite Meet to Beat.") I can tell already that this is a game which would be fun to play a 2nd or 3rd time, because much of the story is told through the environment, and there is simply too much to see the first time through.
Granted, Anachronox uses an outdated graphics engine, and you can tell. There are blocky characters and low-res textures everywhere. However, the sheer size of the levels quickly made me ignore these faults. No other 3D RPG has cities this big, with skyscrapers towering in all directions, each of them available for exploration. Each alien world is distinct, imaginative, and instantly recognizable.
This is one game, I hope and pray they make a sequel for.

I love this game! I just finished it, and I think that this one is going to be a classic. I like it about as much as Deus Ex, another Ion Storm title. It starts off a bit slow, but it picks up intensely about a third of the way through, and it has an ending that knocks you out of your chair like the movie "The Sixth Sense".
This is a unique blend of quest-fulfilling, role-playing, and puzzle-solving. Instead of controlling one character, you control up to 7 characters, and combat is turn-based (like in a D&D game). When you're in combat, you are exploring the universe, solving puzzles, and fulfilling little game quests (yes you know that routine). Each character has special abilities and combat moves, which are gradually developed throughout the game.
The story and the animation in this game are wonderfully engrossing. The plot is filled with great cutscenes that will have you laughing out loud. The combat in this game is a lot of fun too. The game has a special animation effect for every combat move, for every character, and every creature. This animation is rich with great sound and eye candy, like an episode of "The Superfriends". Playing this game gives you the feel that you are in the middle of a Saturday morning superhero cartoon. Actually, it's a cross between a Saturday morning superhero cartoon and an episode of the Simpsons.
One drawback to this game are that a lot of the puzzles are too darn easy to solve -- the answers are basically spoonfed to you, and all that you have to do is talk to everyone in the area and click on each object until you complete the quest. Another drawback is that there is no flexibility in advancing your characters' levels.

This game couldn't have come from the same ION storm that created Daikatana could it? Truth be told, after playing this game for a couple of days now I can safely say that I have been sucked into the world that is Anachronox. From the begging it is evident that this game has been brushed with the paint of a masterpiece. This game has a story line, which meets, if not exceeds that of Deus Ex but it is also full of gorgeous environments (who would have thought this was the quakeII engine?!
I took a risk in buying this game as there has been very little press coverage, and zero reviews as of now, however if you are into deep story lines, and intriguing sci-fi role playing action you owe it to yourself to pick up this game.

I had been looking forward to this game, but I hadn't read every preview and looked at every new screenshot of it. I decided to buy it because I was looking for a new RPG adventure, and I think I found exactly what I was looking for. I feel the PC platform lacks in the RPG department, and this game is a great addition to my PC library of games. Yes, the graphics aren't the best in these modern, GeForce 3 days, but if it really matters to you that much, you shouldn't be playing RPGs. I really enjoy how this game has paced out the plotline while still allowing interaction. I can see how some people will/do say the first couple of hours of gameplay are tedious and lame. I sort of agree with that, but it gets you used to the controls and the characters develop well through the dialogue. This is one of the very few games that is really actually funny. I find most games that try and be funny usually end up including some "wacky sidekick" who turns out to get stuck in walls and who blocks your way to the next map. This game's dialogue is actually quite funny in some areas, and its not a Nintendo funny, its adult humor. Camera problems are almost non-existant and the 3rd person viewpoints seem to fit the game very well. The music and sounds are great as well, and the environments are incredibly well detailed. Unfortunately, the game only "officially" supports 640x480 and 1280x1024. I run the latter and I have no slowdown. You can edit a text file and easily change the resolutions as well. Overall, I really just wanted to provide you with something that will let you decide whether to buy this game or not, and I hope that you have a great time with it when you do buy it.
