Summary: My overall experience with the game suffered from some technical problems: frequent crashes to desktop, stuck at startup or when pressing ESC to menu or stuck during cut-scenes. The puzzles are varied, some are really cool, some just OK and a few just completely illogical. The main character, Sadwick, has a nasal voice and whines frequently.
Summary: I want to love this game but I can't, because for me this game is not that good. Visually it's really stunning, fluid animations and hand drawn backgrounds really got to me, and I thought I would love it, but the way the puzzles are set-up are really problematic. Too many objects in the inventory at once, too many cryptic tips to indicate how solve some of them and lots of times they didn' t make any sense at all, not in a good way like strange but classic point and...
Summary: I am not a huge fan of point-and-click adventures, but i really love this one! The story of the melancholic clown and his pet has great moments most of them funny but also some sad. The game looks amazing with its handdrawn backrounds and livley animated characters. The sound... That seems to be a problem in the english version but for the german version I can say that thevoice actiong i s amazing and the music ( which is available at the publishers page) is wonderful.
Summary: As a huge fan of point-and-click adventure games I'm always happy to see new additions to this genre. Especially when so much time has been spent making awesome, handdrawn backgrounds, cutscenes and characters. Graphically The Whispered World is stunning, absolutely no complaints there. The biggest point of criticism is the voice acting. The main character Sadwick sounds downward terrible , and it's beyond me why this has ever been thought of as acceptable.
Summary: The main character is a clown, a very very sad clown. He is depressed and whiny THE WHOLE TIME. I needed a anti-depressant just to keep playing the game. I could see him being sad and depressed at the beginning, but once he started adventuring couldn't he have been happy about something? Anything? That would be a no. In order for me to enjoy a game I have to at least tolerate the characters. I just couldn't with this one.
Summary: This game is utterly ridiculous. Sadwick, the protagonist, is unceasingly irritating and the puzzles are COMPLETELY ABSURD, full of incomprehensible tasks and illogical solutions. Therefore, if you play this game expect to spend a lot of time looking at walkthroughs, instead of actually playing. The graphics are good, but eventually even the good graphics did nothing for me but emphasize the sub par quality of the story and game play.

Summary: I have had a 'point-and-click' adventure game itch for ages and I had found nothing that really satisfied it - or I couldn't find any 'point-and-click' game at all, that I hadn't already played and finished a thousand times. Then I stumbled onto this game, and I jumped all over it. It turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. The game-play was very familiar, reminiscent of the old LucasArts adventure games back in the 90's.
Summary: This game is a total wash. Everytime you pull up the menu the cursor freezes and you cannot access any of the menu items. Also, the play mode is very slow and keeps freezing the computor. I have had to turn my computer off everytime I have tried the game. Don't waste your money.
Summary: This is my first review on amazon and i decided to make it because of how much I liked this game. I just finished the game today and i have to say it was a great experience. The graphics are wonderful and the story is amazing. Some people I saw complain in their reviews that the main character's voice is annoying, but I dont think this is the case. In fact its kind of lovable. The music also was nice.
Summary: It would have been nice to finish the game, after Chapter III the cursor would freeze up. Game was okay up to that point. I have MORE than enough power on my machine, it is a problem with the game itself or at least the Amazon download version. Up to that point, I would have given it 2***, so maybe it was best that it put me out of my misery.
