The Blackwell Legacy Review

  • Excerpt: The adventure game genre is one that you have to approach knowing that you like it. It's not exactly like the platformer, FPS, or action-adventure genres where you may not necessarily play those types of games but every so often a God of War or a Mario game will come along that you really get into.

  • Conclusion: I wanted to love The Blackwell Legacy, but in the end I was only moderately impressed. Had the story been more compelling, I might have had more patience with the wordy and non-interactive way it is told. Still, this is certainly not a bad effort.

  • Conclusion: En quoi les défauts de The Blackwell Legacy sont-ils des avantages ? Cet épisode montre bien à quel point il est difficile de faire coller scénario original et gameplay. Le résultat est pourtant satisfaisant dans l'ensemble puisque la densité des informations reçues et les situations parfois...
  • Pros: Un bon scénario , De bons doublages , Des énigmes sympathiques
  • Cons: Des dialogues et des informations textuelles parfois lourdes et mal réparties , Uniquement en anglais , Durée de vie un peu courte

  • Summary: The Blackwell Legacy begynner svært sterkt, men klarer ikke helt å utnytte seg av det store potensialet som ligger i figurene og historien. Det lykkes likevel godt nok til at resultatet er et minneverdig lite eventyr, som jeg vil anbefale alle eventyrspillere å kjøpe.

The Blackwell Legacy

Adventure-Treff
16 July 2009
  • Summary: "Kleinere Schwächen, selbst das leider sehr pathetisch geratene Finale, kann ich diesem Titel sehr gut verzeihen, denn in wenigen Großproduktionen der letzten Jahre habe ich mich so gerne bewegt wie in der Welt von Joey und der Blackwell-Familie.
  • Pros: Sehr gut geschriebene Dialoge, Intensiv-melancholische Atmosphäre, Überzeugende Sprachausgabe, Exzellente Musik, Charmante Charaktere, Gameplay organisch in den Plot eingewoben, Kurze Spieldauer, Keine spielerische Herausforderung, Pathetisches Ende
