Summary: I normally don't play games like this (point and click), but once I got the hang of it I really enjoyed it. I was a fan of the film "Immortal" and I recognized the floating pyramid and the Egyptian gods in the screenshots from the film. This game was very well put together, and it took quite a bit of brain power to finally finish. Once I did I looked up more about it and found the Graphic novel online called "the Trilogy of Nikopol.
Summary: I got this game on Steam's summer sale for a really cheap price. I was afraid still after reading the reviews here, but this game is a lot better than I expected it to be. If the puzzles were less difficult than this.. then it would be easily comparable to amature point and click adventure flash games. I think people expect games to be horribly easy these days. The main character wasn't the best, the story wasn't the best, etc etc..
Summary: The overall graphical presentation, general environment, and artwork are very well done and interesting to look at. The plot and storyline are intriguing and engaging, set in a dystopian science fiction far future. Even the voice acting is okay. Sadly, those are the only positive aspects of Nikopol.
Summary: i'm a huge fan of the adventure genre and too many of these games is not enough for me. that being said, this one was only so-so, based on my large list of titles that i enjoy time and again. the graphics & audio were simply stunning, except for the infinitesimal mouse cursor & non-adjustable speed it moved. i have no problems with my vision, but that thing was the smallest white pinpoint, for a game cursor, that i've ever seen.
Summary: This game is based from The Nikopol Trilogy, a popular (well, in France) series of graphic novels by Enki Bilal, which are amongst my favorites in the medium. With that, I would rate the game higher seeing as I'm a fan of the books they were based from and I understand the story of the game since it's set in the same world as that in the graphic novel, and it serves as a supplemental side story in the perspective of Nikopol Jr.
Summary: The graphics are very good - but that's about the only good thing on this game. The developers need to give a more suitable gameplay adventure. Far too few clues as to what needs to be done to continue. A lot of time wasted just trying to figure out the simple parts of the game... ie where to put an easel, etc.
