A beautiful adventure game with modern graphics and a vintage feel...
on April 28, 2010
Okay... so I've played every Sierra and LucasArts game known to man... including the King's Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest, Quest for Glory, Monkey Island, Maniac Mansion series etc.
In other words... I know my adventure games. Those were the vintage days of yore. Then came The Longest Journey, Sanitarium, Syberia and a few more good ones... Lately though, the "classic point n click" adventure genre has been a bit lame/dry... That is until now. I caught wind of this game about a year ago when it was said to be coming to the states following its VERY successful German release. It was well worth the wait. The graphics are the closest thing to playing an animated film I've ever seen, the story is wonderful, the puzzle are challenging but not ridiculous. You are Sadwick the Clown and your are about to embark on one LONG JOURNEY to save the world... The interface is very simple yet intuitive, and it is reminiscent of the control in "Full Throttle" but LucasArts... You simple hold down the mouse button on an object you wish to look, use or talk to and select the proper action. Right clicking opens your inventory which is a giant bag with all your goodies inside.
A word of warning.. this game is HEAVY HEAVY HEAVY in the dialogue. BUT... its very witty and the voice acting/translations are spot on from the German version. Sadwick's voice is a little irritating at times but it does match his personality and name "SAD"wick.
Bottom Line... if you want a kick a$$ adventure game that will bring you back to the good ol' days when Sierra and LucasArts ruled the PC gaming industry... then by all means buy this game. It is worth beyond 29.99 and will take you hours and hours to finish "unless you cheat"
