Summary: Our family loves adventure/quest-type games and it's always great when we can find them for the Wii. This game has an interesting story and a good variety of locations and scenes to visit. The graphics aren't amazing, but they are just fine. There were a few places where the action required was completely obscure and those were frustrating, but overall it was a lot of fun. Note that it is rated T-For Teen.
Summary: I'm a huge fan of the classic point-and-click adventure genre, so I was really interested to try out this title. It reminds me a lot of classic Sierra games that I enjoyed as a youngster. The graphics aren't going to blow you away, but the storyline and dialogue make up for it. Some of the tasks in the game are quite challenging; I didn't make it through without a bit of help. This is a great game but it can be a bit hard to find.
Summary: The game is better than ok. Ton's of puzzles which alot of them just dont make any sense. If you dont get online help (I havn't yet), it may get fustrating at times and consume you. The voices in the game have no life to them. It sounds like they are reading a script with no energy or charisma. Graphics are ok and the game is fun. Somehow, my son and I manage to play it everyday none the less. It is worth a try.
Summary: The focus of this game is the 1908 Russian meteorite which had a impact comparable to a atomic weapon, decades before such weapons existed on Earth. You play as the concerned daughter of a scientist investigating the mystery. When your father goes missing (apparently kidnapped) it becomes your duty to locate him and and uncover the conspiracy behind the Tunguska event. I don't want to ruin the plot, but suffice to say there are plenty of twists.
Summary: Loved the fact that it was a point and click game. This is only the second game of this sort I have played. I thought it was great that it was all about solving the puzzles and nothing to do with how quickly you could push buttons. I enjoyed the varied settings of the story which meant it held my interest. The puzzles were challenging and I liked thinking them through.
Summary: I'm really enjoying playing this game, although I have to admit I have had to consult a walkthrough on more than one occasion. That's probably down to my lack of logic and common sense rather than the game's fault, however I doubt I'm not the only one who would never have thought of using double-sided sticky tape to tape your mobile to a cat!
Summary: I used to love these type of games on the Amiga, a la Simon the Sorcerer. This is a really good point and click adventure game. It features very good graphics and can be challenging sometimes which is a good thing. The salt thing I don't understand, which someone mentioned in another review. It seems fine on my copy, just have to examine the item in quesion. I left a star off only because I thought the voice acting wasn't brilliant, and could have been a bit better.
Excerpt: A solid adventure game with some nice touches to help adventure game novices like myself. Some of the puzzles are a bit bizarre and often progress is a result of just combining things within your inventory to see if they do anything. Engaging and frustrating in equal measure. The UHS (Ultimate Hint Site) website is handy for spoiler free hints for when you get stuck.
Summary: Having pre-ordered his game and completed it just a few weeks after purchase, I'm a little surprised that others claim the puzzles they cannot solve are bugs. The person that couldn't figure out about dividing the number of holes on the drain cover should have listened to the tape in Nina's father's study.
