  • Excerpt: Do you remember that childhood game where you snatch up a hapless daisy and pull off the petals one by one, intoning “He loves me, he loves me not”?

  • Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: Next Life has an overall average feel to it. While the visuals aren't too bad, they are by no means top notch. Locations have a nice look to them, but just don't feel quite right. Other effects like crashing water or birds flying about also seem to lose something and feel fairly fake. The character models are nice, though.

  • Excerpt: Reprobates begins with the “hero”, Adam Raichl, getting in his car. He puts his safety belt on, turns on the radio and starts the engine. On a crossroad, a truck comes out of nowhere and hits Adam’s car…Death seems inevitable… But instead of dying, Adam wakes up in a small cabin in a strange island. There are some other people there, and to Adam’s surprise they were all about to die before coming to the island.
  • Pros: Great models, nice locations to explore, intense game
  • Cons: Exaggerated scenario, indifferent music, irritatingly repetitive exploring

  • Summary: Lets hope this isn't really what happens after death.
  • Pros: Environments and characters are complete with striking artwork and fine-tuned sound effects; worthwhile storyline with a morbid flavor.
  • Cons: Exploration is tedious and slow-paced; trial and error puzzles ruin some tense moments; some areas can only be unlocked by backtracking more than once to the same spot; dying at least once is not an option, but a guarantee.

  • Excerpt: Next Life , from Czech developer Future Games, starts out with an intriguing premise. Your character “dies” in an automobile accident but then wakes up the next day on a strange island. There are nine other people on the island with you, but they don’t know anything more than you do, and, more oddly still, they seem to come from different times and places.

  • Conclusion: The end effect of all this plodding about is a large amount of apathy about our completely unlikeable main character or what exactly he has stumbled into. Next Life is fairly lengthy, probably 15+ hours of playtime, but it's not quality time because of the abundance of backtracking and slow animations.
