Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock
4 June 2012
Conclusion: I like Supermassive Games' idea they had for Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, but I think the execution fell far short of what they planned. Had they given the game a bit more time to cook, then it would have turned out far better. The 2D platformer genre worked well for this title, but it couldn't overcome the shoddiness of the finished piece and the frustration it creates.
Excerpt: Full disclosure: This was a very tough review to write. I'm not much of a Doctor Who fan myself, but my wife is a big enough Who nut to carry her own miniature TARDIS on her keychain. With her watching over my shoulder as I played through The Eternity Clock, the newest game to spring from the legendary Sci-Fi franchise, I got two perspectives on the downloadable title. Hers was as a huge Who fan, and she mostly approved of the adventure.
Excerpt: Doctor Who and video games have never really mixed. There have been dribs and drabs but, until recently, nothing of any real note. Which is weird as the whole premises of Doctor Who would surely make for a great video game. Is Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock the game that will finally deliver on this? First things first; the recent series of free-to-play adventure games on the BBC Doctor Who website were good. Not great, but good.
