Showing 1-4 of 4
refreshingly different and well worth the money
4 September 2009
Conclusion: bought this game on a whim as i love the whole RPG genre like Monkey Island and Broken Sword. At first I thought what a pile of rubbish mainly down to the characters voices and rigid movements of the lead character but when you look past and get involved in the game it's absolutely brilliant!
Conclusion: ive decided to take a star off for one very good reason! the voice acting for the main character is terrible i.e like reading from a cue card) ive only come across worse acting in belief and betrayals main protagonist. apart from that it was a real pleasure to play, with nice puzzles that wont make u pull your hair out over, fine art backdrops a nice original story and original concept of ghost hunting using TAPS tv series style tools which is awasom.
Conclusion: The Lost Crown is like no other Point & Click adventure I've ever played. At times it is scary and sometimes even a little depressing - the combination of clever artwork and realism draws you in to the game, making you feel deeply involved. Much as I love Simon the Sorcerer and Guybrush Threepwood, I never felt woven into their story like this.
Summary: When I first began to play the game, I was annoyed. Because, for one, I am not use to seeing games in monchromatic tones, and two, little things like how when the character walked, you felt like he wasn't touching the ground, or the repeating the same old line started to get on my nerves. But, after all that, I found myself totally enthralled with it! What a fantastic story line! Exploring forgotten churches, old mines, and walking through the town of Saxton was great.
