Summary: This game was a real joke. Nice style and could have been a nice game, but this is just like 1/10th of what an adventure game should be, at least. Takes you 2 hours to finish, puzzles are super easy. I don't understand where those good reviews come from, having in mind that this title is sold at full price. Don't recommend at all, maybe if it was 2 bucks, but not more.
Summary: Pretty. Short. Interesting storytelling. Nice puzzle design. Easy to average difficulty level. I recommend it to those interested in story driven games with unique art styles and logical problem solving. As for my reflections about the game; The interesting thing about the main characters, Vella and Shay (played by Elijah Wood), is the situation they are in, rather than their Pretty. Short. Interesting storytelling. Nice puzzle design. Easy to average difficulty level.
Summary: I didn't have any expectations, nor did I back this project, so I don't really care what they promised and didn't deliver, although if they really promised oldschool LucasArts style adventure, I understand the negative reactions. I recently played "The Dig", one of LucasArts old masterpieces and that is an adventure on completely different level of quality.
Summary: I have to say that I am very disappointed with this game and I can't believe how many reviewers are jumping on the band wagon and calling it "return of classic adventure games". Do not get me wrong, the game looks pretty nice, the music is good, story seems interesting (although we have to wait for act 2 to see how it turns out as a whole) and overall it is a nice introduction into I have to say that I am very disappointed with this game and I can't believe how many...
Summary: First time reviewer here, but as a backer for the Kickstarter campaign for this, I am very upset with Double Fine with this "game." Over 3 Million bucks and this is what they have to show for it? "Broken Age Act 1" is not what I expected from Double Fine. The story, I'll admit is cute, maybe even good.
Summary: This game delivers a very good content, but it is VERY overpriced (too short for such amount of money). Another games of this genre can offer much more for this price tag (hello,Daedalic). Oh, and one more thing: I've played Shay's storyline at the end and it is completely not interesting, and even repelling. to "play along" the story of "saving creatures", when you got it figured out immediately.
Summary: Remember when you played Myst, RIven, Monkey Island, or Grim Fandango? Remember the weeks and weeks of exciting puzzles to solve, and rich story and plot? Broken Age isn't even 1/100th of that. For $25 the game takes about 3 hours to solve. The artwork is fantastic, but the story and game are terrible. Don't waste your money like I did. Big disappointment.
Summary: I don't know why but this game isn't showing its value with 3 million dollars of development costs. I'm happy to be a backer of the lower class and didn't pay more than it was needed to get the game. The game is not telling a good or even deep story so far, there's no riddle in this game (even the Riddle of Yorn is not a real riddle) and all the time I get the feeling that I may be not I don't know why but this game isn't showing its value with 3 million dollars of...
Summary: From the enigma that is Tim Schafer's mind comes Broken Age . Perhaps the greatest example of the power of crowdfunding in video game history, the game managed to raise $3.4 million on Kickstarter, well over the intended $400,000. The outcome of this venture was Broken Age - the first act, that is. The second act is set to release sometime later in 2014. Using only your mouse, you point to where you want to go or what you want to interact with and click on it.
Summary: God, I need to vent this. Broken Age is a REALLY bad game; bland as hell. Basically they **** up everything. Not only is it a bad, boring and shallow game, but it becomes glaringly obvious that it is a big step back from LucasArts games. There's no look/take/use/etc. Only left click and everything will be conveniently solved for you. The problem with this is that the game lacks the God, I need to vent this. Broken Age is a REALLY bad game; bland as hell.
