Summary: I couldn't stop playing this game! It really is one of the most immersive adventure game experiences I've had (better even than most Lucasarts products!). You really want to find out what happens and the twist at the end is quite shocking, the rug is really pulled from under the player's feet.
Summary: Runaway is a varied, fun, cartoonish adventure game that will take you through several very different environments. It may be a little confusing at times, and you will find yourself picking up items that could be described as trash for no apparent reasons, until you finally understand why; or not.
Summary: Since the days of Zork and Broken Sword I've been looking for an engrossing, satisfying point and click, and haven't got close. This brought me one step nearer. Some of the puzzles are a tad easy, and so they compensate by doing silly things like not letting you examine an item on the first look...
Conclusion: Difficult to write a review about this game...the story is very nice and the graphics and sounds too, but the main downside is that the interface is not as good as the rest, so you can miss something just because this stupid pointer was developed in this way.
Summary: This game is reminiscent of the Monkey Island series by Lucas Arts which is not a bad thing at all. The animation is great and the characters have tons of personality. Game play is pretty fun, I got a little drifty due to lack of challenge. The problem solving is not based on reality logic.
Summary: If you like an unrushed adventure games and time to watch short movies--this is the game. The graphics are fairly good and does have some humor at tmes. Good game support which I feel is important.
Summary: Runaway est une véritable réussite. Une nouvelle licence dans un genre peu représenté pourrait paraître banal s'il n'avait pas bénéficié d'une réalisation ultra léchée, d'une histoire accrocheuse, de personnages hauts en couleurs ... bref une ambiance qui donne envie de jouer.
