  • Summary: I should start off by saying i'm not a fan of point-and-clicks to begin with. The Blackwell Legacy didn't change that. I played this because i was told it had a great story and was one of the better point and clicks available. I thought the story wasn't any good. Your typical run of the mill story that had an unlikable protagonist. The mechanics were the same as all other games in the genre and I didn't see anything that would set it apart. Disappointing.

  • Summary: Point'n'click classy adventure with a redhead, not very social "journalist" as a main character. Story was pretty good with logical gameplay (not just random combining stuff like in many adventure games) although not very long. What I like most on this game is that every single conversation is dubbed.

  • Summary: Presentation 5 Blackwell Legacy is an old School point and click game with equally old school visual. Despite looking like an old sierra game from the 90’s it was actually made back in 2006. You will have to put in consideration that this is an indie game, so the productions values won’t be AAA grade. Other than that, the environments are fairly well drawn and colorful, but the low res sprites make distinguish stuff in the background a difficult task some times.

  • Summary: As the first it does it's job in setting up the gameplay and the story, however I felt the story didn't get started fast enough, but that's just my opinion. I swear is some hangs outside a building, claiming to know everyone I'd thump him. A fun little adventure game with a lot of questions about the metaphisical and what happens to spirits when they finally pass on either with sins as living or sins they developed whilst a spirit.

  • Summary: The game is well done and fair on the puzzles. the story is good and lets you into. I find the scenario and graphics good enough. I understand this is the first chapter of a series, but it's too short. Even for me, that I am horrible at playing adventure games, its short. although I do feel game difficulty is just right, to get most of ppl involved.

  • Summary: Definitely a good adventure game, with a very interesting story behind and so much more to know about in the next chapters. It plays as an old style adventure game by point and click, both in graphics and interactions, and while some might "dislike" the old style graphics, it's also one of its charms. However, my biggest grudges of this game are mainly 3: 1) The main character.

  • Summary: An AMAZING! Point & Click Adventure game, for those who are fans of that genre should definitely check this game out. The Story is absolutely wonderful, and you find yourself playing without the care of what time is it. While intrigue to solve the mystery. The only negative, is that this game story is short. Yes, way too short. But, that doesn't take away any of the goodies it contains. Besides the short story line, I highly do recommend it.

  • Summary: An aspect of the Blackwell series is that one never needs to play the games in order to enjoy them. I played this game (1st in the series) after having played Blackwell Deception and Blackwell Convergence in order to catch up on the characters’ backgrounds. I found the gameplay to be more along the lines of an interactive movie (with 2 different endings provided based on your in-game final decisions) than a straight adventure game, but that was fine with me.

  • Summary: I wasn't too impressed with this one. There's not a whole lot of user interaction and there are several spots where it feels more like listening to a book than playing a game. The inventory system is useless and the notebook mechanics need improvement. As a stand alone game, it offers an ok story that ends too abruptly leaving too many unanswered questions.

  • Summary: The Blackwell Legacy is the first title in a series of four (thus far) adventure games set in present day New York City. The game itself follows the seemingly antiheroine protagonist Rosangela Blackwell, a young twenty-something writer who struggles to find her place in the world after the death of her only remaining relative.
