  • Conclusion: Ultimately, these minor errors do not stop Fallout: New Vegas from being a step up from its predecessor in every single way imaginable. It presents an incredibly gritty and real world full of some of the most interesting and quirky characters I have ever met. I rarely felt like I wanted to select a non-existent conversation option and the game world had me gripped in its talons from the moment I was shot in the head. A real winner.
  • Pros: Amazingly realistic world with great characters, stories and imagery. This is what Fallout 3 should have been.
  • Cons: Severely dated engine and the same bugs that plagued Fallout 3 lead to a less-than-perfect experience.

Runaway: A Twist of Fate Review

1 June 2010
  • Excerpt: As a romantic comedy, Runaway: A Twist of Fate works pretty well. As an adventure game, not so much. Pendulo Studios' final chapter in the trilogy recounting the travails of lovable goofball Brian Basco and his erstwhile girlfriend, Gina Timmins, sacrifices gameplay for a whole lot of story in this mostly traditional point-and-click adventure.
  • Pros: Impressive production values, Likable lead characters and an appealing romantic-comedy-like story
  • Cons: Not very challenging, Illogical adventure-game puzzles all based on picking up objects, Overly wordy dialogue

Runaway 3: A Twist of Fate by Looney4Labs

1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: In 2003, Pendulo Studios released Runaway: A Road Adventure , followed by Runaway : The Dream of the Turtle in 2007. Now, just in time for Christmas, they have released the final installment in this popular series, Runaway: A Twist of Fate (Fate) . It is very difficult to review the third game in a series without providing at least some spoilers for the previous two games.

  • Conclusion: Okay, so Runaway: A Twist of Fate is far from perfect, but you know what? I truly enjoyed playing it, and though this has been advertised as the final chapter of their adventures together, I hope it isn't the last we'll see of Brian and Gina.

Runaway : a Twist of Fate

2 March 2014
  • Summary: Runaway clôt bel et bien l’aventure entamée dans Runaway : Dream of the Turtle mais à grand renfort de cinématiques et peu de séquences jouables. Si à l’inverse, on prend Runaway : a Twist of Fate comme une toute nouvelle aventure, on regrettera une certaine fadeur de l’intrigue. Le titre reste néanmoins drôle et déjanté et la réalisation graphique et musicale proche de la perfection.
  • Pros: - les graphismes exceptionnels - l’humour - la musique - la possibilité d’incarner divers personnages
  • Cons: - mauvais enchaînement avec le "à suivre..." de la fin de Runaway 2. - le scénario peu élaboré - la durée de vie très courte

Runaway 3: A Twist of Fate

4 March 2013
  • Summary: К несомненным плюсам игры «Runaway 3: Поворот судьбы» (Runaway: A Twist of Fate) , можно отнести просмотр активных областей экрана. В любой момент вы сможете оценить, всё ли проверили-потрогали-посмотрели. Но есть и недостаток. Активные точки порой размещаются в уголках экрана и не видны в подсказках, без предварительного приближения героя к данным точкам. Каждую вещь в инвентаре можно рассмотреть отдельно, получив о ней максимум необходимой информации.

L’ultimo capitolo della saga Runaway arriva su Apple iOS!

4 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Togliere i veli ad una trama degna di questo nome dovrebbe essere una prerogativa per ogni Avventura Grafica che si rispetti, e Runaway: A Twist of Fate non sembra sfigurare in questo quadro, proponendo difatti una narrativa in grado di entusiasmare e coinvolgere per il talento stesso degli sviluppatori, lodevolmente capaci di creare personaggi sempre carismatici e di carattere, siano essi protagonisti/comprimari o comparsette durante l’ Avventura .
  • Pros: Trama carina e dai personaggi ben caratterizzati, Stile punta e clicca intramontabile e sempre piacevole, Divertente come solo un Runaway sa fare
  • Cons: Enigmi a volte sconnessi e non sempre intuitivi, Bug grafici e di interfaccia, Controlli e reattività su smartphone insopportabili
