Still Life

Adventure Classic Gaming
15 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Microids has developed some of the best adventure games in recent years. Masterpieces such as Syberia and Post Mortem feature realistic graphics, engaging characters (both for their aesthetics and personalities), and great stories that have become Microids' trademarks. Still Life is no exception. In Still Life, you are taken away into a whirl of heinous murders that seem to have traveled across time and space.

Still Life – Review

  • Excerpt: ( Warning: This review contains spoilers. I wouldn't normally do this, but as a reviewer I feel a duty to keep people from being as horribly disappointed as I was. ) Murder mysteries have just a single rule that they need to obey. No matter how outlandish the setting, characters, or events, any entry in the murder mystery genre must contain but one thing—a solution. At the end of the story, we must discover who did it. It's actually right there in the genre title.

  • Excerpt: The contrast immediately assaults your senses, just as the paintbrush drags a scarlet slash upon a stark white canvas. Pristine snowflakes reflected in the cheery glow of streetlamps waft down upon an elegant art gallery, while below ground in the squalid, grime encrusted filth of the sewers, a masked fiend drags a bruised and nude woman behind him like a sack of garbage over the gritty terrain.

  • Pros: Well-crafted atmosphere, Accessible puzzles
  • Cons: Conventional to a fault, Dated graphics, A little on the short side, with little reason to revisit

  • Conclusion: The amount of time it'll take you to solve the murder mysteries of Still Life will hinge on how many snags you hit while solving puzzles, or how willing you are to fall back on walk-throughs. Either way, though, it's a pretty brief experience that doesn't lend itself to multiple plays.
  • Pros: Well-crafted atmosphere, Accessible puzzles.
  • Cons: Conventional to a fault, Dated graphics, A little on the short side, with little reason to revisit.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Ahhh, the venerable graphic adventure (a.k.a. the "point and click") game. This genre of computer game was very popular in the 1980s thanks to pioneering titles such as Zork. LucasArts was the king of the graphic adventure heyday and created such classic titles as Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Sam & Max Hit the Road and many more.
