Review – Another Code: R A Journey Into Lost Memories
20 October 2009
Conclusion: im just about finished with the first “another code” or as we call it in the united states, “trace memory.” i agree that it has its frustrations, such as not being able to pick up something you know you will need until examining something else, or clicking a pixel over from where you actually need to click and hearing ashley tell you (for the millionth time) that there are books on the bookshelf.
Excerpt: There may be a few spoilers in this review - for that I apologise. I'm going to kick off this review by saying that I have owned this game for nearly two years now. In that space of time, I have completed this game five times, and never got bored of it. Another Code R: Journey Into Lost Memories is a game that has a plot like a novel. You work your way through the story, seeing what all the characters have to say, and solving intriguing puzzles to get further.
Pros: Very different to anything I've played before, a compelling story .
Summary: This was a superb game requiring some careful consideration to get to the final solution/result. I had already played the original version on DS (which is my favoured console) and thoughly enjoyed that too, but needed help. With the Wii version I did not need much help as I had learned a few techniques from the ds version.
Summary: Should have heeded the ratings on amazon; but I really wanted another adventure game for the Wii. Graphics are ok and the backdrops are really good at points. The game however feels too linear and provides no challenges at all, worse, even if you try to go to a place that is not currently in the storyline you are sent back. After several chapters we gave up, the puzzles came far and between and the storyline became slower and slower.
