5/10
Play time: 5 hours (main story)

Pros:
+A few fun puzzles
+Unique game world

Cons:
-The game requires a lot of pixel hunting, easy to get stuck
-Weak story that doesn't make all that sense

I had a bit of fun with Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals, but the game has too many shortcomings to be good enough for me to recommend anyone to buy it, even fans of adventure games.

It's a point and click game with a 3D interface, you are stationary in each room/view with the ability to look around freely, and you can click some door openings etc to change room/view. Finding the items needed for solving puzzles can get a bit frustrating, you'll have to pixel hunt to a certain extent, and it's frustrating not knowing what could be missing to progress, and pixel hunt all previous rooms/views to find the missing object.

Some of the puzzles are nice especially the early/mid game "coding" with symbols/items.

The game world/setting started out promising in a dystopian future Paris, but it wasn't explained as much as I would have liked, and fell short. Same thing goes for the plot. It would probably make more sense if you've read the graphic novel, which I haven't, so for me the story wasn't that strong, and left me with a feeling of playing through an unfinished game.

For me, the weak story and gameplay outweighed the few positives of this game. It's still enjoyable to a certain degree, but not a game I would recommend anyone to buy, even at a sale.

Pixel hunting, incredibly slow & dull story, clumsy mechanics, idiotic puzzles, an incredibly poor and lazy game. I don't regret purchasing any other game more than this one.

I liked Immortel (Ad Vitae), so maybe I'm biased, but I liked this take on Myst. The QTE are not so infuriating, and the whole game is lightweight, perfect for some cold afternoons. The voice acting is passable, nothing bad to say.

I came for the Enki Bilal, but I walked away with something that combines all of the thrills from hidden object hunts with the ridiculous puzzle solutions of the old King's Quest series. Bleh.

This game plays like a really bad dream in which you spent good money on a piece of nonsensical and pointless crap.

Then you wake up AND IT WAS REAL!!!!!!!!

Una delle più scarse avventure grafiche a cui abbia mai giocato. Noioso, con enigmi poco attrattivi, e soprattutto, una trama completamente assente.

Beautiful graphics, and interesting premise but the game itself is extremely frustrating. The puzzles themselves are pretty simple, but in addition to the old pixel hunt style, the game doesn't enable the hotspots for items or usable scenery until specific times. Then, just to ramp up the frustration, there are timed puzzles, with the same constraints. Suddenly scenery and items become arbitrarily active or inactive, with little time to experiment and search. Feels like a serving of frustration with a side of screw you from the author. Having a walkthrough helps, but it'll just ♥♥♥♥ you off when you see that your solution was correct -- you just weren't doing it the way the designer wanted you to, and at the right time that the designer wanted you to.

Disclaimer: I haven't read the book or watched the movie. This is a review based solely on my game experience.

Short Verdict: A nice, short adventure game with a decent story going on. While it was a fun experience, it's too short and not that awesome to be worth its full price, which is low, by the way--US$ 4.36 (R$ 10,49) on Steam. If you have it already and you wanna play a quick adventure game, by all means, go for it. If you don't have it, I wouldn't spend much money on it. It's good, but nothing special. But don't play it for the story--do it only for the puzzles.

Pros:
  • The story is decent enough for the length of the game
  • Good graphics if you consider when it was released (but nothing special, either)
  • I enjoyed how the first-person view was implemented and how it makes you interact with the environment in this game
  • The timed scenes are really thrilling
  • Most puzzles were nice and set to a decent level of difficulty
  • The world is fairly well-developed and so are the characters

Cons:
  • Way too short--beat it in less than 4 hours
  • The story is a bit all over the place for those don't know anything about Nikopol
  • Some puzzles are frustrating, especially the first timed ones, when you're still getting used to the game
  • There are some illogical things in the game, like a barred door being magically opened minutes later (close to the end of the game)
  • Some plot holes and weird things, like why would a dictator hold elections? Why is everyone doing what they're doing? Nothing makes much sense

Bought on / for: Arctic Bundle by Bundle Stars for an average of US$ 0.36 (R$ 0,89). For this price, yeah, I'd probably buy it as a single game.

The game was... interesting. The story wasn't exactly bad, but i think you need to read the trilogy to fully understand it. I personally haven't and the story didn't make any sense at the start. The game has quite a lot of action for a point & click adventure game. With action i mean that someone might be following you etc. and you need to do bunch of puzzles or move around really quickly so they won't catch you. Puzzles were quite easy and the game was pretty short (Around 4-5 hours, probably a bit longer if you're new to the genre).

First of all, you need to understand; this is addition to novel or movie. So first of all go and read\watch 'em. Only then consider to play this game. Overall? it is a great adventure, not a best out there but decent.

This game is based on a graphic novel, or a series of 3 graphic novels that later got compiled into one book called "The Nikopol Trilogy" written and illiustrated by a great French author named Enki Bilal. The art in the novel is what stands out the most and is a very dark, gritty, and , industrial, steam-punk(architectural not the lame club scene), and is set in an alternate dystopian future where religions are now all powerful government parties and the ancient Egyptian gods themselves have returned to earth from space in a hovering pyramid spaceship. Despite being gods, with powers seemingly limited only by the imagination, they are still quite flawed sentient beings, who aregue and bicker and play board games to pass the time. They also require fossil fuels to power their spaceship and are stuck hovering over Paris. That is a basic run down of the story line for all you haters out there who "don't get the story line."
Secondly, there is also a pretty popular Sci-Fi film based on the Nikopol story called "Immortal" that came out in 2004. I remember watching it on the Sci-Fi channel a couple times and you can currently watch the full movie on YouTube. I highly recommend it. The movie was directed by the author of the graphic novel Enki Bilal and is actually quite a ground breaking movie in its own right. It revolutionized the art of mixing computer animation with live action. In this dystopian future there is heavy polution, and many people have become sick and prosthetic artificial body parts are not only required for most people, but it is a huge fad like plastic surgery gone haywire, and has become all the rage. So you see these real actors with computer generated parts and they had to film every scene twice exactly the same way. There are also aliens, who are ironically enough, treated just like illegal aliens and have to go through customs and immigration lol.
OK, so , on to the game. This was the first "point and click adventure" game I've ever really played, so it took some getting used to. The fact that this game is pretty closley based on the book and not the movie kept me pretty interested the whole time as it is stuff that happens to Nikopol inbetween the books. Yes the game is hard as hell and I did need a walkthrough on certain puzzles, but honestly, in a world where half the modern games are designed so that a baboon could beat it on hard, it was a welcomed challenge. If you are used to point and click than you know what to expect. This game actually got me into more point and click adventure games such as Myst and a few others. If you are a fan of the movie Immortal(ad vitam) or the Nikopol Trilogy books than this game will blow your shorts off. If not and you kinda liked the crazy dark sci fi storyline, I highly recommend you check out all three.

The first puzzle scene is fun, but it's all downhill from there. Plus, you can finish the game in a couple of hours. Don't know how much it sells for, but worth about 2 bucks, to stave off boredom for an afternoon. Played once, finished, and never opened it again.

Nikopol is just a weird point-and-click adventure. It was over before I could even wrap my head around what was going on, which was primarily the result of its bad story telling. It could have actually been something quite interesting, but it fails to deliver the necessary background and plot to offer it a fighting chance.

Most of the puzzles are very simple. Some sequences must be completed within a certain amount of time so it's not a traditional casual adventure. Frequent deaths were annoying, but the well placed automatic save points didn't kill the overall enjoyment.

The gameplay is fundamentally sound. Graphics are decent although it does only support letterbox aspect ratios so widescreen monitors end up displaying black borders on the sides. Overall, Nikopol is a mediocre adventure game, one I'd recommend passing up.

A short, but highly imaginative adventure game. Based on comic, it has a really nice aesthetic. The puzzles are interesting and aren't too obtuse. The voice acting is a bit awkward, the models look kinda odd at times, but at that price, it's probably still worth it.

i heartily recommend it if you like interesting settings, Enki Bilal's comics or short adventure games.

I highly enjoyed Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals. The story, the atmosphere, the characters and the unique puzzles make it a few marks above your average point-and-click adventure game.

I was lucky enough to have watched the movie (Immortal 2004) before playing, so I could appreciate the plot of this game. If you didn't like it, I would suggest that you rent (or likely buy it from your local bargain bin) and take an afternoon to watch it before trying to play this game to fully appreciate it.

Fun and short game. Not overly difficult, but it will make you think. The art direction and ambience is really well done. The cutscenes animations and voice acting are a little wooden and dated, but they didn't annoy me that much.

Side note: I had to make this game run in compatibility mode in order for it to work on my Windows 8.1 machine.

This is a very, very short experience. Considering its point-and-click nature, I'd generally expect more out of an adventure game, an interesting story at the very least. Yet the most interesting parts of Nikopol are, a) the cinematography used in the cutscenes, and, b) the menu screen, one of the more unique implementations I've seen in recent memory.

Few of the puzzles present in Nikopol are some of the most illogical I have come across, often requiring you to complete a sequence in a very specific way or you will either be forced to repeat the sequence from the beginning, or you will die.

Yes, you can die in this game but there are no consequences, you will simply be placed back where you were before you made your mistake, with the protagonist remarking on the methods of their death at the continue screen, providing little clues. I died no less than five times within the first 30 minutes of play. I do not enjoy being thrust into an action sequence when I'm searching for the smallest, insignificant of clues to progress forward.

Even though I'm fairly adept at puzzle games I did require a fair amount of assistance to complete certain "logic" puzzles. It really ruined the immersion.

There's a myriad of typos and grammatical errors throughout the subtitles and in-game flyers. The voice acting was uninspiring and lacking any semblance of enthusiasm, although the original French version of the game may be more thrilling. The story was intriguing but the abrupt ending left me longing for more, I really wanted to know more about this alternate reality in which humanity exists oppressed in a Blade Runner-esque world.

Actually, the ending felt extremely abrupt, there were many questions left unanswered by an unsatisfying and cheap conclusion. Apparently this game is based on a French film with a similar premise, I suppose I'll have to search for it to understand whatever little subtext was offered in Nikopol.
