Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU BUY! I don't understand why this game has so many maxed out reviews. The storyline is most average, characters annoying and shallow, gameplay is tedious and the puzzles illogical or plain stupid. I love point&click games and that's why I gave it 5/10 but compared to, let's say, Syberia, it looks like a stream of bat's piss next to Niagara waterfall.
Summary: It was interesting to play it so long time after release. It is a fun point-and-click game but with the recent "advancements" from the scene such as hotspot-highlight. I missed a lot of objects due to the lack of this feature and had to revert to a walkthrough. It doesn't run in windowed mode nor could I change the resolution (my monitor doesn't like 1024x768).
Summary: Most of the game time was spent in either (a) watching my toon take incredibly long walks across the screen or (b) watching incredibly long and uninteresting cut-scene sequences which could not be bypassed... This game motivated me to create an account and write a review. Which is saying something. I have never been so annoyed with a game.
Summary: There are so many things I dislike about this game. Actually, everything about this game falls under the dislike subheading. So here we go, lets list some problems! Cons -The characters are uninteresting and the relationship between the two main characters is unrealistic. Basically in the beginning of the game your guy runs over a lady who is being hunted by the mafia and you must help There are so many things I dislike about this game.
Summary: Nice story,great characters, Great game for point-and-click enthusiasts. Very funny in some moments, the puzzle can be challenging. Final point, the graphics are great for its time. Worth buying.
Summary: If you're partial to a cinematic experience than 'Runaway: A Road Adventure' might just be up your alley. Although on first glances it seems like a standard point and click adventure game, you'll find out that it has a completely different individual element to it that is a rarity in modern day titles. A distinctive charm if you will.
Summary: This game sucks and I think the positive reviews are from shills. I like these kind of adventures, but the characters are annoying and the puzzles are stupid. This is a real letdown compared to something from Lucasarts. I feel ripped off.
