  • Conclusion: Playing Machinarium, I sometimes felt that I was at odds with it. I was infatuated with its beauty and craft, yet infuriated when its artistic qualities clashed with its basic mechanical design.

  • Cons: The extreme difficulty of certain puzzles often kills the fun.

  • Summary: Machinarium's robotic hero is one of the year's finest leading men: He's dedicated, resourceful, and oozes charisma--yet he doesn't speak a word of dialogue. Nor, for that matter, does anyone else in this traditional point-and-click adventure game.
  • Pros: Tells a delightful story without a word of dialogue, Excellent, challenging puzzles, Lovely hand-drawn visuals and offbeat soundtrack, Great in-game hint system
  • Cons: Non-adventure elements aren't very good, A few interface and presentation quirks

  • Conclusion: Still, these are small problems that do little to overshadow what is ultimately a unique, original adventure that had won me over wholeheartedly by the time its conclusion arrived.
