Review: Memoria is an adventure without the "adventure logic"
24 April 2014
Excerpt: Adventure games always have their own brand of logic. You can't just turn a knob to open a door. Instead, you have to snap your fingers, chant an ancient melody, and tickle a summoned demon before you can even get a key to unlock the door.
Excerpt: I tend to have problems with a lot of point and click adventures. After a while they all start to blend together for me. For me, about eighty percent are cookie cutter stories with identical puzzles. However, one company has been a constant exception for me and that is Daedalic.
Excerpt: begins with a riddle, and that riddle expands into an enthralling mystery that tells a story which spans centuries. As a point-and-click adventure that takes few chances, its gameplay offers inconsistent quality. However, the story is top notch.
Summary: Memoria is a nice trip down memory lane for people who like old-school adventure games. It doesn’t have a lot of the new features that games tend to have now, but it is innately familiar if you’ve played an adventure game before.
Excerpt: While I appreciate the art style and the unique animation used in Memoria, I have personally never been a fan of the point and click gameplay. Point and click games have always come off as frustrating, tedious, annoying, and full of was I supposed to do that? moments.
