  • Conclusion: The Whispered World left me with somewhat mixed feelings. I found myself interesting in the story but burdened with the amount of dialogue and I enjoyed the immersive and beautifully drawn world but frustrated by the logic in some of the puzzles within it.

Game Debate
31 July 2010
  • Excerpt: My God did The Whispered World drive me mad initially. After the first few hours, I didn't have a good thing to say about it and would rant about it to anyone who would listen. Even if they weren't listening. Actually, I'd rant on even if there was nobody there.

  • Excerpt: Playing The Whispered World is like entering your favourite children's book (Terry Pratchett's one will do as well). I'm not talking just about the simple yet detailed graphic but also about the original story.

  • Excerpt: Once in a while, a game comes along that very few have heard of; a game no one marks their calendar for. It's a quiet game, and it has some rough edges and blemishes. It's easy to pick on and it might get overlooked amongst bigger releases.
