Reviews and Problems with Runaway: A Road Adventure
Showing 1-10 of 90
First class point and click adventure
6 July 2005
Conclusion: Runaway : A Road Adventure is basically what Broken Sword 3 should have been. This is a really absorbing adventure game with a good storyline, brilliant animation, great voice acting and lavish backgrounds. At certain points through the game your character, Brian Basco, interupts the proceedings and you see him in what looks like a director's chair, telling you a bit more of the story. This is a nice touch.
Summary: _Runaway_ starts with a movie: an attractive young man in a director's chair on a dark stage tells you about the strange turn his life took recently. Brian Basco, you learn, is a brilliant physics student on his way to dream position at UC Berkeley. As he's leaving New York, he remembers he has an errand to run and heads to SoHo. A beautiful woman runs out in front of his car.
Summary: I Just want to say that anyone who didn't like this game or had so-called "bugs" needs to check their head or get a better computer gaming system!!! This is the best adventure game I have ever played (humor, intrigue, originality, graphics, etc.) The lady who wouldn't recommend this to her 6-year-old needs to get a grip!! Your six year old should be playing with tickle me elmo!!
Summary: Runaway: A road adventure is a very original and enjoyable game. Where do i start, where do i start... I loved the puzzles. even though, as some mentioned, some of the puzzles are a little weird and not very logical, anyone can pick up after a while that that was part of the game. typical hollywood plot, mafia people, drag queens, aliens, beautiful girl who doesnt turn out to be who we thought... it all fits together.
Summary: Last year has been a very fruitful one for adventure gamers. Runaway is a fine example of last year's harvest. It is a "typical" point and click adventure game, which has all the necessary ingredients to make it a success: (1) Great Plot (2) Fun, logical puzzles, with no pixel hunting (3) Very nice graphics, atmospheric and humorous (4) Pleasant main characters with good voice acting, that dont irritate the player (5) Atmospheric ambient music and great rock themes.
Summary: This is a pretty interesting game. It's funny. It's beautiful. It's cool. And it's a smart one, a must. The graphics are outstanding, the music pretty nice, and the script very original. The only thing I didn't like at all was the girl. She was as gorgeous as dumb!
Summary: Runaway is defenetly a great adventure game ! look good old time, hand drawn Sierra and LucasArts games we used to love so much. It's fun, and has a great plot line, not to mention a whole amazing look and feel.
Summary: I am a huge fan of the Monkey Island series, mostly for the sytle of gameplay, but also for the humor and interesting "twists". Runaway has all of the aspects that I love of that series but with a sytle completely of its own. Runaway takes you on a roller coaster of adventure and suspense, but does it in a supremely crazy and comedic way. I completely agree with the other reviewers that Runaway should have a "Mature" rating.
