Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual
25 September 2009
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. The game's pre-rendered backdrops have just the right hint of animation to make the game feel more dynamic than it really is, and Sylvie Leroux's and other characters' movements are nice and fluid.
Excerpt: It's been a while since adventure gamers had some good, serious games to enjoy. For a while we had a nice revival in the form of the Syberia games and the Longest Journey series, but aside from that, good adventure games that aren't also comedies are hard to come by. It's with a sense of pleasure then, that I recommend Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual.
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. The only gripe is that the game ends rather abruptly, making it feel more like an episode or a prologue than an epic adventure.
