Top Customer Reviews
Once I installed the patch, I naturally found the game much more enjoyable. The graphics and animations are pretty decent and you do get a good feeling of exploration as you cruise around the Martian surface. My only complaint here is that there are only three locations to explore once you leave your landing capsule. I suppose, in reality, there wouldn't be all that much to see on a barren planet, but I would have liked a few more rooms or chambers to explore inside the few buldings that you do encounter. Another, although minor, complaint is that the animations get old fast. You start seeing the same scenes over and over, even when you are in a new location or travelling in a different direction. It would have been nice if the designers added a little more variety.
The puzzles in the game are fairly good, but most seem tacked-on instead of blended into the story. I found most to be a decent challenge, although a few were ridiculously easy, while others were just a matter of random guessing. But, if you like the puzzles more than the story, you should enjoy Lightbringer.
Overall, Lightbringer is a reasonably entertaining adventure game, but I'd save it until you've run out of some of the better titles to play.
The puzzles that are needed to solve this adventure aren't extremely frustrating, so they're great (and VERY satisfying) for the novice and experienced adventurer alike. All in all, the game was so impressive that I am very eager to experience another title from DREAMCATCHER INC., like THE CRYSTAL KEY. Fans of MYST will love this game. Haters of MYST will also.
Despite this, I installed the software, and began playing the game. Although swapping the 5 CDs becomes cumbersome very quickly (there needs to be an option to load more on the HDD to eliminate the swapping and choppiness caused by frequent cd access, but there is not), the colours and images seem crisp, though all pre-rendered. When characters talk, their mouths just do a random open close motion, but that really wasn't a big deal to me.
You can't interact with a lot of the environment, and wide open spaces that you'd think you can move towards aren't available. There are three major zones of interest for your character, and I had no issues with exploring two of them, with no game play issues. Every so often, the game will "zoom out" and show your actual character doing something, like getting in or out of the hovercraft, or running across the desert. I'm not sure what the purpose of that is, other than to add a little cut-scene to the game. You can't play the game in 3rd person like that.
The puzzles are mostly easy, and do not provide brain killing challenges like those in Schizm for example. Ringing gongs in a certain order based on translations of the martian text using your in-suit computer was interesting. I like the concept of the in-suit computer, it's got a dictionary, translator, mission logs and archives, as well as real data from the NASA programs.Read more ›
