Excerpt: Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual is a mixed bag that could leave hardcore adventure gamers cold, but less experienced ones with a nice challenge ahead of them. Story and puzzles aside (we will get to those later), The Scorpio Ritual looks great.
Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual by flotsam
24 August 2009
Excerpt: Kate Walker, Nicole Bonnet, and Victoria McPherson. April Ryan and Nina Kalenkov, Morgan Sinclair and Phoenix Wallis. And who could forget Nico Collard? To the list of strong females sweeping all before them, you can now add Sylvie Leroux.
Conclusion: without giving things away. It’s not to say there aren’t some strange solutions, but any seasoned adventuring type will be pleased that most of these are fairly tame and land less on the side of plain bizarre. The voice over work is good as Sylvie remarks about each and every object you click on.
PC Review - 'Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual'
23 February 2009
Summary: In Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual (formerly "Testament of Sin"), players' detective skills will be pushed to their limits as they travel the world in an attempt to unravel an ancient mystery and save a fellow archaeologist before it's too late.
Conclusion: Me, I don’t mind the occasional nice, easy adventure. And ultimately I think that’s a fitting description of the game as a whole: nice and easy. Pleasant while it lasts, but very, very short.
Excerpt: Originally titled Testament of Sin, City Interactive's Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual is a high quality point-and-click adventure game that all fans of the genre will likely enjoy. The story is good, the graphics are great, and the characters are fun.
Conclusion: Très classiques, les deux titres se laissent parcourir gentiment malgré leurs quelques défauts. La réalisation générale est de bonne facture, mais manque de saveur et de dynamisme. Sur ce dernier point Art Of Murder est le titre qui propose la meilleure alternative.
Pros: Visuellement agréable, Doublage satisfaisant, Plus dynamique que Le Rituel Du Scorpion
Cons: Cinématique d'introduction non passable, Très dirigiste dans la résolution d'énigmes, Manque de logique pour certaines actions, Trop classique ?
