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.
Runaway is a great adventure game, rivalling even the best of the genre.

Excerpt: The classic point 'n' click adventure genre has recently seen a resurgence of interest with the release of the Tales of Monkey Island series, the Sam and Max episodic series and the special edition re-releases of the original Monkey Island titles. Runaway: A Road Adventure is unfortunate in the sense that it was released during an extended and seemingly never-ending drought of adventure game development/excitement, with the mainstream of gamers focusing their attention...
Excerpt: Runaway a Road Adventure starts of with Brian getting ready to move home and get prepared for university. In the run up to this there are little problems which end up as big problems unless you can solves them. There are clues scattered all over the place and in the most unlikely of places. There is a significant amount of humour which helps get you through the puzzles which are slightly harder than normal.
