Blast From The Past Dual Motives

Excerpt: I purchased Undercover Dual Motives around the Christmas time last year with a voucher I got and thought this was going to be a fantastic game. I wasn't wrong but wasn't quite right either! I did enjoy the game, there is no question of that but I thought it wasn't what I expected at first. What's The Story? Set in pre-war setting of 1939, DR J. Russell accompanied by his secretary Audrey, works in London who have to solve the mystery that surrounds their offices.
Summary: This game is in the style of the old point and click adventures. I am something of a fan of these games and this one sounded interesting because of the two main characters and the way they interact. You play a professor and his secretary. Set on a British resesarch base during World War II important documents have gone missing. You must find out who took them and why. You control both characters and can often switch between them at will.
Summary: I was very disappointed by this game. The plot is clumsy and obvious and the dialogue is absolutely dire. The silly banter between the characters is supposed to be humorous, I guess, but is actually pretty daft. The female character keeps stopping to do something odd with her hands - like pulling an archery bow, I thought at first - turns out she's checking her face in a mirror :-( The movement of the characters is poor, with that annoying walking action continuing for a...
Summary: This game keeps you occupied for a while, not very long but not one you zoom through too quickly. It is not hard but the odd puzzle is a bit tricky, not that you can't see what to do but actually being able to do it... one in particular took me a few goes to achieve the objective therefore I give this game full marks as you need to look around, ask a few questions, figure out how to do something, combine a few items and solve a few puzzles.
Summary: This game is a classic point and click style game, suffering from the classic point and click style problems. Mainly leaps of logic to solve puzzles and being unable to interact with items/things until you have completed a set of actions. E.g you might know you have to pick something up, but until you talk to someone, the game won't let you take it. This is a very, very short game and I was really disappointed about that.
Excerpt: Undercover: Dual Motives was a Christmas present from my parents and was really looking forward to playing after thoroughly enjoying Hotel Dusk: Room 215, which is a similar style of game. Undercover had me hooked from the moment I picked it up to the point at wish the end credits rolled but I can't honestly say that it is a game that I would whole-heartedly recommend.

Summary: Wie der Name schon sagt ist es ein Ermittler oder Forscher Spiel in dem man mit Taktik und auch Ideen, aber auch Erfahrungen aus dem eigenen Leben oder aus Geschichten von anderen an allen Ecken und Enden punkten kann, und sich somit sehr schnell und effektiv weiter arbeiten kann. Im Spiel stehen einem am Anfang zwei ähnliche Spieltypen zur Verfügung. Natürlich John Russel als hauptsächlicher Agent, aber auch seine gewitzte Sekretärin in der Forschungseinrichtung!
