A Golden Wake

Hooked Gamers
23 October 2014
  • Conclusion: Clocking in at around 5 hours for an average play-through, the game is not particularly lengthy for a commercial adventure, and a lot more story could have been packed in. There are a number of characters treated as being quite important who are seen only once or twice, for example.

Diehard GameFAN
13 October 2014
  • Summary: A Golden Wake may not be the next great adventure game, but it is still a solid title. The main character carries the story well the presentation has its charms, and the gameplay is solid. Of particular note, the game plays out like a series of shorter chapters.

A Golden Wake

Cosmos Gaming
11 October 2014
  • Excerpt: One of the things I like the most about the adventure genre is its willingness to explore territory that games aren’t common in video games. While a lot of action titles have gone for similar themes, there are a lot of different settings and narrative styles in adventure games.

  • Excerpt: I decided to do a retro review of an old John Tiller game. The game is The Proud and The Few from his Squad Battles series. This game focuses on one of the most brutal battles the US Marine Corps faced back in World War 2, so immediately this game peaked my attention.

The Wargamer

  • Conclusion: Even though this game is over a decade old I must say it still surprises me how fun it is to play even after all these years. It’s usually the great games that survive the test of time, and The Proud and The Few is among them.
