  • Conclusion: Overall, there is much to recommend in this handheld conversion, but if you’ve played the PC version already, bear in mind that it’s only a port. As fun a game as it is on the DS, I can’t imagine anyone going out of their way to own it on both platforms. Assuming you haven’t yet played the game, then, anyone looking for a fun but challenging handheld adventure can’t go far wrong with Runaway: Dream of the Turtle.

Runaway: The Dream of the Turtle review (DS)

  • Excerpt: A well made adventure with mostly enjoyable puzzles and a distinct, goofy personality that deserves your attention. Don’t let the silly title or the cel-shaded look fool you.

Runaway 2: The Dream of the Turtle

  • Conclusion: Runaway 2 cannot be ignored by any true fan of adventures, problem-solving or puzzle-based gaming. And as an adaptation of a PC game, it is one of the best I have seen so far, both for graphics and for controls. Uncharacteristic for games on the DS platform, I experienced several crashes but the game did not have any technical shortcomings apart from these.

Review: Runaway: The Dream of the Turtle

N-Europe
31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Runaway offers a testing environment to frustrate your grey matter. And although the it's host to some of the most illogical, testing puzzles on the DS, the major plus is that it wraps itself up in a wonderfully realised universe with a lot of great video
  • Pros: Sumptuous CGI work and plenty of it, Point and click controls are handled well
  • Cons: Illogical, frustrating puzzles are too frequent, Lack of a quality soundtrack seriously hurts the presentation

Runaway 2: The Dream of the Turtle - Review (NDS)

Konsolen-World
1 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Runaway: The Dream of the Turtle ist ein wirklich gutes und spaßiges Adventurespiel. Vor allem muss man lobend erwähnen, dass dieses Spiel wirklich gut auf Nintendos kleinen Handheld umgesetzt wurde. Das Flair der Insel kommt genauso gut rüber, wie die diversen witzigen Charaktere. Vor allem bei den lustigen Gesprächen, bleibt kein Auge trocken. Im Spiel selber, bewegt man sich außerdem sehr gerne durch die vielen unterschiedlichen Bilder.

Runaway: The Dream of the Turtle

  • Conclusion: eg kunne skrive spalte op og spalte ned om de spil, som jeg levede og åndede for i teenageårene; de såkaldte point 'n' click-adventures, som især Lucas Arts mestrede udi det sublime. Indiana Jones , Loom og Monkey Island-spillene dannede fortroppen for en generation af spil, som tryllebandt en hel hær af computerspillere, som fik mulighed for at deltage i storslåede eventyr, hvor vejen til kongeriget eller verdens frelse gik gennem de små grå og en masse udfordrende...
  • Pros: Virkelig lækre animationer. Holdbarheden er ret så god.
  • Cons: For mange ulogiske gåder. Fejlfyldt konvertering. Kedeligt persongalleri.

Runaway: The Dream of the Turtle

Gamereactor
24 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Helt siden Nintendo DS kom på markedet har jeg ventet tålmodig på at de gamle eventyrspillene skal oppdage den håndholdte konsollen. For meg virket det åpenbart fra dag en at denne maskinen ville passe perfekt til å relansere klassikere som Day of the Tentacle og Sam & Max. De har ikke dukket opp ennå, så mens vi venter kan vi se nærmere på Runaway: The Dream of the Turtle, et pek og klikk-spill av den gamle skolen.
  • Pros: Lang og underholdende historie, kreative oppgaver, fungerer bra på DS.
  • Cons: Skjermene til tider for små for spillet, middelmådig lydspor, mye dødtid.

Runaway - The Dream of the Turtle

Spieletipps.de
27 July 2008
  • Summary: "Runaway 2" war im letzten Herbst für mich die größte Enttäuschung 2006. Nach dem erstklassigen Teil 1 haben die spanischen Entwickler bei "The Dream of the Turtle" scheinbar einfach zu viel gewollt, so dass ihnen der rote Faden sowohl bei Story als auch den Rätseln verloren gegangen ist.
