Recensies

“A New Beginning maakt een verbazingwekkende indruk. Het is spannend, gevat en hardnekkig. De graphics zijn een echte blikvanger en beide hoofdpersonages worden complexe persoonlijkheden waarmee men zich gemakkelijk kan identificeren en waarvan men zelfs kan gaan houden.”
90/100 – http://www.adventurecorner.de/reviews/228/a-new-beginning

“De soms ernstige en dan weer grappige dialogen zijn een van de sterke kanten van het spel. Ze geven de beide sympathieke hoofdpersonages diepte en persoonlijkheid. De schrijvers hadden zelfs aandacht voor de meest subtiele details.”
84/100 – Gamestar

“Dankzij een combinatie van sterke personages en een verbluffende en gedenkwaardige achtergrond is A New Beginning een "eco-thriller" die u niet mag missen.”
80/100 – Adventure Gamers

Over dit spel

A New Beginning - Final Cut is een filmische avontuur-thriller in beeldromanvorm. In dit mooie en grappige avontuur staat de aarde op de rand van een klimaatramp. Het is belangrijk de wereld rond te reizen om de mensheid te redden en de hele wereld dit verschrikkelijke lot te besparen.


Bio-ingenieur Bent Svensson moest stoppen met zijn onderzoek naar alternatieve manieren om energie op te wekken. De voormalige werkverslaafde leeft afgezonderd in de afgelegen bossen van Noorwegen. Zijn rustig vroeg pensioen wordt verstoord door Fay, een jonge vrouw die beweert uit de toekomst te komen.
Ze probeert hem ervan te overtuigen dat ze hier is om de klimaatramp te vermijden. Volgens haar is het onderzoek van Bent de laatste hoop om dat doel te bereiken.
Maar zijn werk dreigt in de handen te vallen van een roekeloze energiemagnaat die alleen aan zijn eigen winst denkt.
Samen moeten Bent en Fay de dreigende wereldcatastrofe proberen te voorkomen.

Adding together all the elements, playful and creative, A New Beginning is not hard to be recommended as a purchase more than recommended to lovers of adventure games as well as the best the genre has been able to express, looking at the outputs in the shops and the main ones in digital delivery, in 2011. the sci-environmental theme is treated in a serious and interesting, used as background for telling stories and characters that accompany the player in the completion of a good number of puzzles, designed for variety and challenge. Too bad for some high and low and smudging techniques that are repeated in the products signed Daedalic Entertainment, otherwise fantastic in terms of design and artistic qualities.

Personal Rating: Nice Journey
Classic Rating: ★★★★☆

Really interesting point & click adventure. Some things i liked:
  • Well curated sci-fi storyline
  • Good looking artworks
  • Interesting puzzles which really make sense
  • Nice and well developed characters
  • Bug free

Some other things which might have been better:
  • No widescreen resolution
  • Voice acting is a bit monotone (especially Fay, one of the main protagonists)
  • Some more supported languages would have been welcome (there are subtitles though)

If you're a fan of Daedalic Entertainment Games, this one should be on your to-play list.

Firstly a note on the voice acting and how I got past it.... it's bad. I knew it would be based on the majority of the reviews here, but my god I wasn't prepared for how painful it actually was. It's as if they grabbed random people off of the street and made them read lines of dialogue with no context. It's so poorly done that it just doesn't make sense. I was so turned off by it that I was going to give up after an hour. I did find that I was able to continue by switching the language back to German. While not perfect, they at least tried to emote and it synced up with the mouth animations on the panel scenes given that it was the native language of the game. Just go into it as if it's a foreign subtitled game. I know that turns a lot you off, but it's still better than the English voice track.

that said...

A rather disappointing outing from Daedalic. I tried harder than I usually would to give it a fair chance to impress but it never actually came through.

Screens/Backgrounds are well done. The biggest compliment I can give here.
Story was lacking in my opinion. Written too loosely and eco-preachy to the point of borderline annoyance.
Characters were weak and two dimentional. Many of them so unlikable (looking at you Bent) that it was hard to care or empathise with them enough to desire any kind of resolution on my end other than soon forgetting them.
Puzzles are challenging, but fair. To be honest, I was so tired of it all by the third act that I power FAQ'd.

It's currently $2. Hard to say "Don't Buy" at a price that low, but I sure wouldn't recommend paying more. I'll remain a longtime Daedalic fan for what they've done to reintroduce and support P&C genre adventures in recent years, but this is an effort that can easily be swept under the rug.

So, i read the reviews on here. Everyone is going on about bad voice acting. Blah, blah. Really ? Ok, so let me help you if you are interested in this. Buy it. Play and finish it. This game is worth your money and your time. That is the bottom line. I loved the subject matter, and the game made me feel a sense of loss when i finished playing it as i grew close to the characters. Thus, it has a great story and great characters. Could the voice acting have been better ? Sure. But i played this for the adventure. There is a message here in this game, and i feel it is a good and honest message. Look after our planet and our children will have a place to live. It creates a sense of loss and longing as it shows you what could happen if we dont change our ways. It was a really great thought provoking graphic novel. And it will stick in my head for a long time to come. The puzzles are good, i could solve some of them quite easy. They are challenging, but not impossible at all. This game has a lot of emotion in it, It made me think back to old adventure games in the 80s. It has some great level design and locations.I love the art style and the color palette because it fits the game perfectly, creating the right mood. Helping to create a world that pulls you in and keeps you there. Everything compliments each other well, and creates the Ambience tied together with a great musical score. I really would like a sequel to the game, and would buy it for sure.
