Conclusion: I have just finished playing Still Life and i was interested by it, the storyline has depth and twists and turns that keeps gamers on the edge of there seats. The character of young FBI agent Victoria McPherson has a good mixture of serious and funny characteristics which is good for the game due to...
Summary: The game play is good although it is frequently a bit too obvious where to go next. The puzzles can keep me occupied for a long time, but my one grudge is that at the end of the game you are not told who the criminal is that you have been chasing!!
Still Life: Great Adventure as Far As It Goes, But Unfinished...
14 August 2009
Excerpt: Still Life is a 3rd Person adventure game released by Microids for the PC and Xbox in 2005. This review is based on my experiences with the Xbox version although I understand there is little to no difference.
Pros: Atmospheric, Clever Puzzles, Intriguing Characters and Situations, Great Artwork
Cons: Does not have a proper ending, sequel has finally been released but only for PC .
Summary: Coming across as virtually identical to the excellent Syberia games,this has you as two characters,one in Prague in the thirties and one in modern day Chicago,you are tracking a serial killer with apparently the same M.O, I won't go into the story as that would spoil it,needless to say it plays like...
Summary: I literally finished Still Life a few minutes ago. I really can't describe the main thing that disappointed me most because that would spoil the game. Otherwise the manufacturer's description above tells you most of what you need to know about the general story so I won't go over that again.
Summary: This is a really good game. I have heard it described as CSI meets Syberia and I think that characterises the game pretty well. It does however, have a dark sense of foreboding about it, which is absent from the other games, and befits the central story -the investigation of a serial killer.
