Summary: Quite a fun game, also worked on by Wadjeteye Games and it is interesting when they do with the wizard of Oz lore. I quite enjoyed this and it's a nice short adventure game that I recommend to most anyone willing to have a go with it, not ot mention it's quite cheap and easy to find online.
Summary: There's no place like home. Just not at home playing this game. *sigh* I am downright furious. Emerald City Confidential had all the makings of a really enjoyable point-and-click adventure title but it is one of my biggest video game disappointments. The storyline was fantastic, the voice acting was great and the music was fine. The puzzles on the other hand. WTF. It's almost like the developer (Dave Gilbert) forgot to include them.
Summary: This was the best game I've played in ages! True adventure game fans will love this one - not a single Hidden Object scene to deal with, just pure adventure gaming in every sense of the word! Yes, the game was relatively easy and the graphics nothing to shout about, but the fantastically woven story, acerbic humour - which reminded me a bit of the Monkey Island series from the early '90s, and excellent voice acting throughout (I LOVED the voice actor who did Shaggy!
Summary: Adventure gamers, what a hidden gem ECC is! The game play is everything one looks for in an adventure game, witty dialog, interesting story, excellent voice overs and creative pixel hunting. Loved it and thank you other gamers for recommending it!
Summary: Wow. If I could give this game six stars, I would do it. I absolutely adored playing it! The story of the witty detective with the tragedy in her past has been done before, but the gameplay, graphics, voice acting, and clever quests ALL more than make up for it. The story begins in Emerald City, 40 years after the events that brought Dorothy Gale and her four companions to Oz (and they have all aged well, I must say).
Summary: I need to know if there a more games like this. I love a great story. Great voice acting and interaction. Please let me know when this developer comes out with something else as brilliant as this.
Summary: WOW! Its just my fvorite game. It stands in fiirst position in my favorite games. Petra is a wild detectiive. The story is spell binding. Its about magic and I enjoyed using the magic. The corruption, cruelty was shwn very well. Ozma's corruption was also very well shown. Characters are very nice. it deserves a sequel for sure.
Summary: I love this game! I have to admit a first glance it didn't seem like it was interesting but once I tried it, it was just gripping. The story line is so gripping, it has it's own take to the Wizard Of Oz story line being set way in the future where magic is banned and I love the way old and new characters intertwine. The dialogue is just great with a mix of useful information and those extra lines that give this game a likeness to reality.
