The Next Big Thing

  • Excerpt: It has been a while since the point-and-click adventure game was really popular; this popularity has seen a huge decline since the introduction of 3D games.  The point-and-click genre relies heavily on story and the characters who are involved, as the game play itself cannot be modified.  The Next Big Thing is set in a world where monsters are movie stars; you play as two reporters, alternating throughout the game.

Next BIG Thing (The) - Test

  • Summary: Avec The Next BIG Thing , Pendulo aurait pu se remettre en question, nous inviter à vivre un périple plus consistant, corsé et palpitant. Or, les démiurges espagnols ne semblent pas avoir complètement écouté les reproches émis lors de la sortie de leur précédent jeu…

The Next Big Thing

PS3Hype

  • Summary: Het doel van de ontwikkelaar was om het Point & Click-genre een nieuw leven in te blazen. Dat is deels gelukt; het spel is voorzien van mooie grafische kwaliteit en vocale kunstwerken. Echter valt er ook te zeggen dat het geen verbeteringen toevoegt aan het Point & Click-games. En houdt iedereen wel van de fictieve kant waarvoor de ontwikkelaar heeft gekozen? Over smaak valt natuurlijk te twisten; waardoor wij hier neutraal in blijven.
  • Pros: Grafisch mooi, Vocaal mooi, Fictie
  • Cons: Fictie, Geen vernieuwingen
