Summary: Theresia has alot of problems; the puzzles are kinda weird (in that the sloutions are just ridiculously skewed in terms of logic) and there are some noticeable (but infrequent) syntax/ grammar errors. However, the game has an incredibly creepy atmosphere and the story is like a great gothic horror novel. Also worth noting, the music is top notch. If you love horror (like I do) and don;t mind putting up with some issues, Theresia is the game for you.
Summary: I had recently played another Aksys game (9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors) and enjoyed it. Theresia seemed to be similar in gameplay, but in a darker gothic style with survival horror elements. Being a huge fan of the horror genre, I decided to buy it. In terms of gameplay, Theresia is tedious. This is particularly true for the Dear Emile portion.
Summary: Its very addicting, but.. at the same time, a lot of it kind of leaves room for improvement. It plays out like Shadowgate and Myst had a stem cell baby with the Comodore 64 game Bards Tale. You can play as two different chaarcters, though the second one in the event that you beat the first characters story. It plays out very creepily and has spooky music, but the graphics seem to go from old Duke Nukem style to crisp and fresh new style.
Summary: When I first heard of this game I was really curious how a horror game would work out on the DS. After playing the game I must say this, the graphics for the game are pathetic. It was like flashback to my early Nintendo days. And the controls and interface are annoying. There is a look command that you have to use to find things in each room or area and an interact command which if you try to only use all the time you get hit by quite a few traps.
Excerpt: Age Rating - M/17+ 1 Player There is no wi-fi or multiplayer option for this game. Can be bought new or used for £15+ on ebay.co.uk I love games with an in-depth storyline and I had heard that this was good for creating an atmospheric, emotional play; plus the eyeless figures on the game box cover interested me.
Pros: Good storyline, artwork and the fact it's a point and click game .
Cons: Frustrating puzzles, repetitive soundtrack and some translation issues .
