Well worth the price (if your newer system will play it)
1 December 2014
Summary: Wow. When this came out I was blown away because someone finally gave me a "kick em in the family jewels" option (which never gets old). Too bad it was never continued. It was a fun game that needed more content. Not only could you just kick a guy off a cliff if you didn't feel like fighting, being able to set up or position yourself to knock over heavy items onto enemies, burn them with a well placed blast of flame from your hands while they were standing in oil or...
Summary: I have only played a short part of the game, but I am enjoying it. The game should definitely be rated mature because of the violence. The best part of the game is the combat system and the interactive environment. I have been focusing on the melee aspect and enjoying it. The story is not very clear to me yet, so I am not sure how deep it is, but it doesn't seem deep yet.
Summary: It's $6.50 get it and try it, you might like it. I own hundreds of games and this is one of the few I've actually finished. It may be a bit dated but I still found it more entertaining when I played it than many modern games. We need more fantasy fps/action games like this. I'm sick of the modern warfare type games. I give it 4 stars because its a little old now.
Summary: Wanted to let people know this will run on newer machines using Vista or Win7, even 64-bit, I'm playing it on Win7 64-bit Home Premium. Several ways to do it. Either with DosBox or download a windows installer that is available on-line. It runs much better if you create iso images from the discs then use a virtual CD program like Daemon Tools Lite to mount the images. Hope this is helpful to those who may be considering buying this game.
Summary: I tried to really like it, but I am not fully excited. A lot of cut-scenes and good quality of art indeed create a very nice impressions. Game play is solid, but it's all the same old same and at some point the increadibly rich in details graphics in this specific colors starts to get on the nerves. Other than this - a game totally worth attention - maybe you'll like it more!
Summary: Lots of positives in this game, but a few things that made me give it four stars instead of five. The graphics are beautiful, the story interesting (it actually makes sense, a rarity), and it's relatively easy to navigate from scene to scene (though the map is pretty useless). My quibble is with the HOS, which all involve finding pieces/parts of an object.
Summary: This game is pretty cool. I played for about 40 minutes before I decided to take advantage of BFG’s CE-game-at-standard–edition-price sale today (on a foreign language site, sorry). I haven’t run into any of the glitches discussed by other reviewers, but I will be on the lookout for them.
Summary: I was impressed when I first started playing Penumbra Motel. It was one of those few casual games that was 100% Adventure, without any hidden object scenes -- which was nice for a change, especially after playing an Adventure/HOG that went a little overboard on the hidden objects. I liked the combination of "detective story" type music with background sound. The game used filmed actors rather than computer generated people. It's true the Hint could have been better.
