  • Summary: This is basically a JRPG (with all pros and cons) made by a western company. It's shallow at times, the combat is not very fun, the story isn't that interesting, but the game just have some charm and soul put in it and it keeps you playing. One thing that should be mentioned - the game's sense of humor, it's really good.

  • Summary: Seen its up on Steam...A game i've been gagging to get again. Game play wise one of the most intelligent and brilliant RPG's i've played. Was hampered by tons of bugs that ruined original game. But steam seems to fix its stuff to work on Steam so im hoping its all nicely patched to atleast the fan patch standard. cant recommend enough. Awesome game if a bit dated graphic wise. But the cartoon feel works in its favor. LOTS of replay value.

  • Summary: A forgotten (by masses) masterpiece PRO: - wide variety of interesting, breathing worlds; - awesome camerawork; - great dialogues full of humour; - memorizable characters and epic plot; - tons of details; - nice music and excellent voice cast; CONTRA: - fights are pretty boring until you get MythTechs - different bugs & glitches (c) - Quake2 Engine with it's limitations P.S. No one is making games like this nowodays, sadly.

  • Summary: Wow, this game is incredible! I've just played it recently, ten years after it's original release date, and it is one of the best games I've ever played. If you love story driven, epic in scope, RPG's with a variety of fascinating environments to explore, you'll love this game. And the humor, it's truly laugh out loud-able in more than a few occasions. Very well written and creative.

Universe changing - literally

  • Excerpt: "I picked this tasty piece of gaming history up about six months ago in a bargain bin when I noticed it was created by Ion Storm, the same people who made Deus Ex. My journey began then, as this game is filled with satire and humour, two of the best combinations in a game where you have to save the universe. You start the game with a cutscene of the main character, 'Sly Boots' getting the stuffing beat out of him by a midget in a black suit, and ...
  • Pros: Fantastic Cult Role Playing Game
  • Cons: Doesn't take itself too seriously

  • Excerpt: "I saw this little gem on my local games shop shelf for the tidy sum of 5 squid, so I thought, what the hey! You know that feeling, when you play a game, and it "feels" JUST right, like final fantasy 7, yoshis island, you know what i mean. This has it. Do not be swayed by it's tatty looks, in this case you CAN polish a turd (ewww). Anachronox is a funny little game, and rpg using the quake 2 engine (oh dear). The plot is deep, the characters ...
  • Pros: cheap as chips  : D

  • Excerpt: "It had been a while since I last bought myself a game for my pc. The last one i bought was Championship Manager a few months before (I have also reviewed this on this site) The game cost me £30, as far as i know the price has not changed. This may seem expensive to a few people, but believe me it is more than worth the money. I think that there is about thirty hours of gameplay waiting for you on purchase of this game. The story begins in an ...
  • Pros: Great graphics, well structured plot, well developed characters, great sounds and music
  • Cons: Social life killer

Anachronox

DoloresClaiborne, Ciao
10 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Uscito nel 2001, "Anachronox si presentò con una grafica tridimensionale gestita dal motore di "Quake 2", un'ambientazione fantascientifica e un'impronta da film "interattivo" diversa dai concorrenti. Vestiamo i panni di un detective che abita sul pian ...

Les bons jeux ne vieillissent (presque) pas

Mawwic, priceminister.com
10 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Anachronox, c'est un peu ce que les Final Fantasy auraient pu être s'ils s'adressaient à autre chose qu'aux ados'. Du cynisme et de l'ironie, pas mal d'humour, un univers avec des touches vraiment originales... Reste quelques difficultés techniques pour faire tourner le jeu aujourd'hui, en partie réglées par les patches non-officiel ajoutés par les développeurs une fois le support d'Eidos terminé.
