  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

fun characters

Amazon
16 July 2005
  • 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.

Not perfect, but pretty good

Kouyoumdjian Alexandre, Amazon
16 July 2005
  • 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.

No Broken Sword, but getting closer

Sally Edmans, Amazon
16 July 2005
  • 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...

Hugely atmospheric, gripping storyline

J. F. Blackburn, Amazon
16 July 2005
  • 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.

Worth sticking with it...

  • Summary: I've played dozens of point and click adventure games over the years and I believe that you can tell from the first 15 minutes of gameplay whether a game is worth carrying on with.

  • 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.
