  • Summary: This game didn't deliver what it promised. I could forgive bad graphics, but puzzles were not challenging (even for my low standards) and one not logical (last password). The story would be OK, and I played the game to find out what happened with patients, but in the end it left out few holes and...

  • Summary: an average point and click 'crime investigation'. the voice acting is reasonable and you do get a sense of being drawn into the story when the first information starts to be revealed.

As linear as a book

  • Summary: The two stars in my review go for competent voice acting and nice motion captured animation. Sadly, these are the only well executed parts of the game. Overclockers: A History of Violence is so linear, the game-play is essentially "hunt the 'next' button", rather than using classic point & click...

Superb Adventure game with Original Ideas

  • Summary: Game comes with 2 discs - one for play and one for install which I haven't seen before. I spent a lot of time looking at a black screen while waiting for something to happen which gets worse as the game progresses which I think is unacceptable.

Almost great

  • Summary: Played on Windows Vista 64bit. This is a very decent point & click 3rd person adventure game. The graphics/music are good, and the story is very good, but i think it is a little let down by the way the game is approached.

great effort

  • Summary: Overclocked is fun to play although a little dialogue-heavy and a lot of flitting about between cells to talk to various patients. The storyline is pretty clever and it also has a pretty good ending.

A little unusual

  • Summary: I care more about the actual plot/game rather than graphics and voice acting (which are good in this case), so I'll comment on those. What's good about this game: It starts with an interesting plot, which unfolds in a quite unique way, in small pieces from the end to the beginning.

Excellent and intruiging game

J Stenton, Amazon

  • Summary: Lots of fun. A lot of time moving between patients in a psychiatric hospital trying to piece together what happened to them, but as the tale unfolds it gets more engaging and you really want to find out what happened.
