  • Summary: First off, as has been stated here time and again, this is not a game. That said, it is also not a book. And therein lies the source of most of the negative Steam comments. Yes, it is slower than a book, but does that necessarily make it tedious? I am inclined to say, "no".

  • Summary: The Story Mechanics have done a splendid job of making you feel like you're back in 1914 Britain which enhances the experience you'll have reading their adaptation of the novel. If you're wanting to play a game, you'll be disappointed but if you're looking for an adventure novel to read with that...

  • Summary: Rarely we see a story-telling game doing the story telling part right but that's not the case with The 39 Steps. It proves once again that video-games are as capable as other mediums of telling a good story about humans and human problems.

  • Summary: Very poor attempt at creating an interesting visual novel/interactive story. Voice acting is far from being natural, gameplay boring and events uninteresting.

  • Summary: It is not really a game, it is an interactive story with barely any interaction at all, but I really enjoyed it. A very interesting story (better than the movie) and a nicely crafted atmosphere.

  • Summary: While this is definitely not going to be everyone's cup of tea it does have a very enjoyable element to it and for me personally made me want to finish it. The big deal breaker for this kind of interactive novel is the story they choose to present and for me 39 Steps is a winner.

  • Summary: Definitely different and its quality is comparable to heavy rain, if not better... the minus point comes from the unnecessary mouse*pad gestures to open doors and stuff. It was not necessary. The other minus is because this game is basically a pdf game with sounds and animation..

  • Summary: Okay, I'm giving this a 10 on a couple of counts. The first being that this is bold new territory. Seen nothing quite like this. I was immersed in the story, and really enjoyed the experience.

  • Summary: Good concept but... for a game about story, one would hope that they have a decent mastery of spelling and grammar. I am no expert on the English language, but, even I feel like I'm being yanked out of the attempted immersion at times due to said spelling errors, common writing pitfalls, and...
