Summary: A perfect ending to the Runaway series, the first Runaway game was released years back and it's hard for me to accept that the series has come to an end because I have gotten so attached. It's funny to see how the characters has developed through the games and how the story turned out and I absolutely love the visuals in this game. I am really going to miss the Runaway games, they were unforgettable adventures.
Summary: Technically, it is an improvement over the previous versions: you can skip walking, there are hotspot highlight and the game now is able to run on any monitor resolution (not just 1024x768 which my monitor doesn't like). Despite I wanted to play it on my own, I got stuck 2-3 times for hours and had to lookup a walkthrough, but generally the puzzles are more logical than the previous versions. The ability to play as Gina is a welcome addition.
Summary: A fun point and click adventure with a great score and beautiful drawn graphics. The voice acting is quite good too. The story keeps you interested enough, but in my opinion the game is far too short. I spent a few hours each day and finished it in a weekend. Didn't see that coming!
Summary: A Really enjoyable experience, great voice casting group, however I wish they had kept the same voice for the returning characters. Never the less, its worth a look and I highly recommend it to any fans of point and click adventures.
Summary: That is the first Runaway game that I play but I really enjoy. Its a nice and funny history with many puzzles to solve. The help system work pretty well and the gameplay is simple. Its not a game to break your brain in some crazy puzzles, its a game to have fun, give some laughs and enjoy a good soundtrack.
Summary: The first two runaway games were excellent, but this one fell a little flat for me. Only a handful of characters from the first two games returned, and it seemed to have a completely new voice cast, which kind of spoiled it for me. Nevertheless, it was a good game, with challenging puzzles, and a satisfying conclusion to the story.
Conclusion: I remember playing Runaway A Road Adventure many years ago with fond memories. I quickly pre-ordered the sequel 'Dream of the turtle', but didn't like it as much as the original. When the final installment was announced I simply had to know how the trilogy was going to end, so I pre-ordered it too!
One of the best adventure games I've ever played, Runaway: A Twist of Fate redefines the genre.

Excerpt: Pendulo Studios has come a long, long way in adventure game development. The Runaway series had rather humble beginnings back in 2003 with a relatively unheard of title which flew under the radar of most mainstream gamers. Runaway: A Road Adventure introduced us to the tumultuous lives of Brian Basco and Gina Timmins, an unlikely couple caught up in the fallout of a murderous conspiracy.
