I still don't know why i bother to play this game; I suppose after buying the whole pack, i was determined to finish all three games, even if theyre terrible, terrible games. Anyway, Adam's Venture Episode 2 (seriously, I can't believe they made a second one) picks up where the previous game left off, except it turns out after stopping the evil professor guy ( I seriously can't be bothered remembering his name) the company you work for (yea forgot them too) take you in as prisoners, for no apparent reason. You escape and find Solomon's Temple. Like literally thats the plot. While as before it has a few interesting puzzles, they're still far too easy. Graphics and gameplay are identical to the previous game, and as a result, is still just terrible. Writing and characters are bland, uninteresting and badly written.

If you've played the previous game, and you really, really want to know what happens, then I suggest you write your own fan-fiction, because it'll be better than this.

The main character is in incredibly annoying. I think they were trying to go for campy, but they failed. I'm sure other people would have liked it, but it just wasn't my cup of tea.

The graphics for the game is pretty inconsistent. Somehow, it always loads the low textures and after a second, it will finally load the high textures. Of course the game has a tendency of always loading the low textures until the character you are controlling is suddenly close by. And if the character moves too far away, it then loads the low textures again. I don't know why it does, none of the other games that I play does this. So I just have to assume it is a software issue.

Gameplay wise, it is a very simple point and click adventure. Of course, the game doesn't support the mouse at all, so point and click isn't a good comparison. Play this game with a controller, because the game with the keyboard is very annoying. Even then, the controller just makes it tolerable. The puzzles themselves are very simplistic and basic, but sometimes a few puzzles are incredibly difficult. If you are wanting a simple quick game, this is it. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother with this game.

its a game...I believe in god, i am open to games based on god.....I don't like this game, its shallow, short, sexist even by 1930s standards, bad jokes, the puzzles make no sense noir give you any sort of understand why you are solving the puzzles or even how to work out some of the puzzles. I have seen better high school projects then this. what is even more painful, this game is now on ps3.........

its been a long long time since I regretted buying a game, i mean some games have been bad but at least they tried, this game makes me ashamed being a church going man, and thats saying something. honestly.......if you want a G rated game for your child who will prob hate you for buying this because he will get stuck, get stuck by the bugs, hate the fact its so shallow then buy it.......but honestly.............i rather go play remember me, and i hate that game........don't bother, it wasn't worth my time other then to get the achievements............gaaa i wouldn't even donate this thing to good will

The Adam's Venture Series is one of disappointment. The third person adventure/puzzle series is accompanied by deceptive visuals, unclear puzzles, cheesy character models, and voice acting.

The game('s) puts you in the shoes of Adam Venture, a young archeologist trying to find the Garden of Eden, Solomon's Temple, and...his girlfriend...

So the first two of the adventures sound kinda cool...so what happened with the third? [SPOILERS] Well the second game ended as a cliffhanger in which the notorious villain runs of with Adam's girlfriend. [SPOILERS] Hence, the first half of the third game is a flashback and the second half is a lame and poorly executed attempt at a climax. To be honest, out of all the three games the first is the most enjoyable. The story was probably the best and the environments the most exciting in the first game.

The gameplay try's to blend adventure exploration with puzzles. Now don't get me wrong I don't have an issue with adventure/puzzlers. The problem is that the adventure portion is exciting and the puzzle portion is boring and frustrating. The puzzles in game look like they were designed for a five year old. They literally only take you about 2 minutes average to solve...if you can understand how the puzzle works. The puzzles are presented with minimal and vague instructions. I spent twenty minutes trying to figure out what the heck I was supposed to do with the stinking puzzle sometimes! So in short, the puzzle portion of the game is a major fail...

The adventure part is fun enough though, however long it lasts. Each game only takes about two and a half to four hours to beat.

The game advertises itself to have gorgeous graphics and while I will admit it does look good, it only looks good at a distance.

As with most Unreal Engine games, the game looks appealing at a distance and then as you get a closer look you start to see where work needs to be done. I maxed the game out and I noticed that as I got closer to the camera everything just went completely fuzzy, un-detailed, and pasty. Oh well...I guess you get what you paid for...

Perhaps though the worst part of the game is the character models and the voice acting. The character models talk and move in the weirdest manner during the cutscenes. I don't know how anyone could consider that natural movement. To worsen, it the voice acting is terrible. Compound that with a crummy script and there you have it...a nauseating experience.

The Adam's Venture has brought me some fun adventures moments, but that is about all...

Not much here folks, go play something worthy of your time...like Counter Strike, Planetside 2, or some kind of an adventure game that doesn't have a cheesy pun in its title...

Content Review:

What the Adam Venture series lacks in quality it makes up for in content. The game contains literally no objectionable content and boasts on its homepage that it strives dearly to make a game "for the whole family to enjoy." If only you could actually enjoy it though...

Positive Elements: You stand for mortality and try too stop the evil henchmen in the game from completing their tasks.

3/10 (Barely Present) Violence: There are many chases throughout the series. A lot of action/adventure sequences. Perilous situations are encountered frequently. One character pulls a gun on Adam and Evelyn, but never actually pulls the trigger (thought he threatens to).

0/10 (None) Language: :)

1/10 (Barely Noticeable) Sexual Content: Some flirtatious conversations between Evelyn and Adam. Nothing lewd or obscene though.

0/10 (None) Drugs/Alcohol: :)

2/10 (Barely Present) Negative Elements: Adam is occasionally haughty and can have a very narrow minded view about some things.

Other Moral Issues: Mystical Forces are referenced and seen sometimes in series.

Final Content Rating: 9/10 (Clean)

Again, same review as the first one except this takes just over 2 hours to get 17 achievements and 100% complete to get those perfect games stacking up.

I can recommend this game series for:
- Adults who like casual adventures
- young teenager
- children

All three games are casual adventures with (for adults) very easy puzzels and a quiet simple, yet funny humor. The 'action scenes' and language contents are appropriate for the groups mentioned above. Playing as young adventurerer Adam Venture there is quite a bit of decent story that can be discovered during the three games. The graphics are pretty okay for an indie production, the voice acting is also quite good and the controls are very simple. With a very maximum of 2.5 hours of play time for each game the series might be suited for the impatient kind, but is surely a bit disappointing for deep story lovers.
