Fantastic style but mediocre gameplay

  • Summary: I loved this game at first, but after I got a while into it, I got extremely bored with it. The game looks great and starts off with some interesting puzzles, but in the middle it starts moving at a snail's pace. The storyline progresses at an excruciatingly slow rate while you are stuck in some huge areas trying to solve poorly designed puzzles. The bane of any adventure gamer is the pixel hunt, and this game has plenty of them.

Not The Best, Not The Worst

  • Summary: I'll play almost any adventure game, because there aren't so many of them around. I paid $20 for this and don't regret it, but I wish it was a little more fun. There really wasn't that much humor. Some puzzles were tedious, there was a lot of trying everything with everything else for no obvious reason, and a lot of going back to the same places over and over because there is now something there that wasn't there before.

better than most

  • Summary: This is a better than average adventure game. Major points for point and click ability instead of using arrows and other keyboard letters. It has funny ,politically-incorrect characters, great animation and sense of humor. Where else can you sit around in your sweatpants and be entertained for hours for about 20 bucks?

Half Good.... and then Half Disappointing

Angela "Bora", Amazon

  • Summary: This game started really cool with an intriguing mystery. The first two chapters were good at building that mystery. The third chapter was just for fun but a lot of its puzzles were getting more and more illogical. From chapter 3 and beyond, a lot of puzzles just seemed to be created to prolong the game in artificial way (you already figured out the answer but you still have to keep going back and forth to complete certain missions). It became frustrating.

  • Summary: American dream came true! Brian got a lot of money along with a brainless chick and a brand new Ferrari. I always ask myself why people come up with such a cheesy Hollywood like plots? Runway... Is it really adventure game? Hell no. Tired with a lot of boring conversations, linear walkthrough, completely non logical puzzles, and one more thing... blood. If I wanted to see people die I would have played freaking Doom. I simply do not understand. Look at success of Myst.

Some flaws, but interesting.

  • Summary: I received this game for my birthday. I've got a beast of a computer at home, but I noticed that my maximum installation still skipped on the animation transitions (between the cutscenes). Isn't the point of installing it 100% to get smooth animation? However, despite 3 installation options, the "maximum" installed game still ran off of the CDs, which slowed down the framerate and transition between scenes, which is why the game would oddly pause between transitions.

  • Summary: Je dois dire que Runaway fut une déception majeure pour moi, friand de jeu d'aventures. Il est très bien réalisé, les personnages semblent attachants en surface et les situations peuvent paraître cocasse de prime abord, là n'est pas le problème. Mais...rien à faire, je n'ai pas accroché le moins du monde à cette aventure. Le gameplay en lui-même n'a rien d'éblouissant.
