Diamon Jones: Eye of the Dragon
Adventure Classic Gaming
1 November 2013
Excerpt: Diamon Jones: Eye of the Dragon is the second game in the Diamon Jones series. Like Diamon Jones: Amulet of the World that precedes it, the game is developed by Russian developer Litera Laboratories and later ported to English from the Russian original. As in the previous game of the series, this game is a classic third-person, point-and-click causal adventure hybrid.
Excerpt: As Eye of the Dragon opens, Diamon Jones sits drinking in a rundown bar in Shanghai in 193_ (the game never completes the date). He’s lamenting his plight -- no job, no money. He agrees to a bit of thievery, just so long as it pays in cash. Of course he has no idea of the importance of the artifact he has agreed to steal.
Conclusion: Ultimately the best I can really say about Diamon Jones: Eye of the Dragon is that it appears to be a step in the right direction. Some of the problems arising in the first game have been addressed, but not nearly enough to make this a game I can readily recommend. The poor translation is a constant annoyance that faces the player throughout their journey, and the minigames are all too often badly designed exercises in boredom or frustration.
