  • Summary: The Next Big Thing is a lovable adventure game from the makers of the Runaway series. The graphics are beautiful and the characters are funny, entertaining and absolutely lovable! The Next Big Thing is an unique and unforgettable adventure experience that I will always hold dear.

  • Summary: These movie games tend to pretty bad but this one is actually pretty good! It's not perfect and there are some rather silly "things" in the game like the pointless junction boxes and the fact that your teammates are really dumb. The aiming system is really annoying and does take a while to get used too. The gameplay is rather fun as the enemies are quite challenging to fight in fact this game is really god damn difficult at times.

  • Summary: I like this game. I find myself liking very few games. Most of them I believe to be mediocre. Maybe I am just a bastard but I like this game. This game has charm coming out the wazoo! Quirky fun AND memorable characters. So many games. So forgettable. This one is not. I suggest you pick it up. It was the first point n click adventure puzzle game I have played. Honestly. Yeah. I know. Terrible. Apparently it's a genre I may have a thing for and it's thanks to this game.

  • Summary: Now this game isn't about being the best. It's about being a sendup to John carpenters The thing. You can go to Outpost31.com for patches to get mouse look and learn other goodies. There are probelms with the game such as enemy A.I., it's horrible but it's still a fun game with decent story and graphics. Some of the levels are hard while others are simply too easy but all around it's a fun game.

  • Summary: This is a very poorly made game. Despite the fact that the graphics are some of the most beautiful ever seen in an adventure game, the story is mediocre, the puzzles fall short and are completely nonsensical most of the time. Pendulo Studios are responsible for the amazing Runaway series (which likely brought the adventure genre back to life) and I can't get my head around how they failed at this so badly.

  • Summary: Great Characters, voice acting, humour, graphics, story. A fun game that's worth the price, and worth the time. Recommended for point-n-click enthusiasts.

  • Summary: Fantastic Game, I bought mine during the summer sale. I loved everything about it. I agree completely with that other guy, it was very funny and worth the price (Summer Sale at least). An all round great game.

  • Summary: Despite the fact that this game has numerous plot holes in it's story, some odd game play situations and sometimes corny voice acting, it remains till this day a very atmospheric game that's very fun to play.

Not a bad older game

Eric L. Willard, Amazon

  • Summary: I always tell people of this game when they ask about the horror genre. Here is what makes this game stand out from other games. - Yes it is a shooter but it has other aspects that other games don't. - You can have people that you find join you and help you progress to the next location. You may need an electrician to rewire a box in order to open a door so finding this guy is important. - Fear factor.
