  • Excerpt: The Blackwell Legacy is the first game in the Blackwell series from Wadjet Eye Games, an indie game development company founded by Dave Gilbert in 2006. The game is actually based on a freeware game released previously by Gilbert called Bestowers of Eternity. For the game, Gilbert has crafted an unusual and brilliant story about ghosts and mediums.

The Blackwell Legacy Review

GameZone

  • 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. If you've never liked an adventure game before, it's almost a guarantee that you will never get into the genre.

  • Conclusion: If you yearn for your adventure gaming fix – and you’re already done with this months Sam & Max - this is definitely your next port of call. Roll on episode 2.

  • Excerpt: Scattering her aunt’s ashes from the Brooklyn Bridge, Rosangela Blackwell reflects that she never really knew her aunt. She visited her aunt weekly for twenty-five years while her aunt lay incapacitated in a mental institution, but there was no communication between them. Still, it was the only family she had and now that small comfort is gone.

  • 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. Both the writing and the puzzles are of high quality, even if the balance between them is off.

  • 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. Spillet er verken stort eller spektakulært, men takket være logiske gåter, troverdige figurer og en rik og velskrevet historie har det ingen ting å skamme seg over.

  • 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 maladroitement amenées correspondent en fait très bien au déroulement de l'histoire et aux vérités abruptes auxquelles doit faire face l'héroïne.
  • 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
