Alter Ego

Square-Go
11 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Sometimes a game can benefit from being an anachronism in the era of high definition, mega budget titles. The “Adventure Game” genre reaps the most benefit, as its very mechanics eschew advances in graphics and game design from the last decade, settling on pre-rendered backgrounds and intriguing...

Alter Ego

Adventure Classic Gaming
4 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Alter Ego is an example of a point-and-click adventure game that nearly hits the mark of perfection from beginning to end as a game for novice gamers. The game tells of a murder story à la Jack the Ripper from the perspectives of a duo of very different characters—a petty thief named Timothy Moor...

  • Conclusion: Ultimately, although it definitely suffers for its extremely ill-conceived finale, Alter Ego shows significant improvements on some of the problems that plagued Future Games’ previous projects, and in fact is probably the best game the developer has produced to date.

A boring story, a dreadful ending, and easy puzzles bury this dull point-and-click adventure.

GameSpot
5 August 2010
  • Summary: As any fan of a good murder mystery will tell you, there's nothing more satisfying than a surprising reveal and a shocking payoff. Unfortunately, there's a disastrous corollary to this tenet: A bad ending insults the reader and renders the plot that came before it hollow and insincere.
  • Pros: A couple of creepy moments
  • Cons: Story goes nowhere, Abysmal ending, Puzzles require no thought, just random clicking, Bare sound design fails to instill tension

Role-Switching Adventure Adds Punch To Point And Click

GIN
4 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Point and click adventure games have been around for about as long as computers, or at least computers with graphics cards, and have become a staple in the industry.

Alter Ego (PC)

26 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Tšekkiläinen Future Games on tullut tunnetuksi lähinnä keskinkertaisten hiirivetoisten seikkailupelien kehittäjänä, eikä firman tuoreimpaan yritykseen Alter Egoonkaan näin ollen kohdistunut järin suuria ennakko-odotuksia.

  • Conclusion: ein sehr gutes Adventure geschaffen, welches sich Fans des Genres zweifellos zulegen können. Die Grafik ist der Hammer, die Soundkulissen realistisch und die Zwischensequenzen und Rätsel mit verschiedenen Schwierigkeitsgraden lockern das Spiel auf. Ach ja, die Zwischensequenzen.

  • Conclusion: Alter Ego est un bon jeu d'aventure. Bien réalisé et disposant d'une histoire assez complexe, ce titre s'avère très efficace dans son genre, mais est intégralement en anglais, ce qui ne facilitera pas la compréhension chez certains joueurs.
