Adam's Venture is a simplistic puzzle adventure game. This third episode can be completed in roughly 2 hours. The puzzles get slightly tougher in this one, but it's the same gameplay as the first couple episodes. Voice acting and the animations are still reasonable. Taking the three episodes as a whole, the game offers a mildly engaging storyline, kind of like an Indiana Jones type of movie--although the ending is pretty cheesy. I found no obvious reason to break the game up into three separate installers other than to charge more money for the entire product. By separating them, each individual chapter leaves a feeling of "that's it?"

I personally loved this game and enjoyed every second i played.... sure some of the puzzles were hard because it doesnt tell you exactly what you have to acheive so you try out every possible combination and end up with the right one. But when you realise what youre supposed to be doing its just an 'ohhhhhh, thats easy' moment and you sail through it. Great story as with both episodes 1 and 2 and Adam is just too funny in parts. Just shows that games don't have to have amazing graphics and out of this world animation, to be a great game it has to do everything this one does; draw you in with its great story and entertain you with the dialog. I can't say this game is any better than the other 2, they are all great in my mind. Plus it makes you feel clever when you solve a puzzle :P

So overall I would highly recommend this game to anyone who likes puzzle games it will keeps you entertained for hours :D

Adam's Venture Episode 3: Revelations, is unsurprisngly the third entry in the Adam's Venture episodic series. It picks up where Episode 2 left off, with Adam waking up in Solomon's Temple, and trying to find his girlfriend? Eve.

Story

Adam Venture is possibly both one of the most cliched characters i've ever seen, and also one of the most annoyingly incompetent. This isn't the Max Payne or Tomb Raider style of incompetent, where it's because the Plot demands it, it's the bumbling fool type of incompetence, where the individual just stumbles from mess to mess. That said, here Adam shows some level of actually being able to do something by rescuing his girlfriend from nondescript evil dude that doesnt really have any prior establishment as a villain. The plot basically screams of "We needed to figure out a happy ending in about 2 minutes". It feels stupid, and it doesnt help that the all the character's dialogue are terrible. Especially Adam, since he comes up with the most annoying and cliched lines in history. Seriously, I generally don't single out bad writing as a reason for hating a game, but Adam's Venture is just so bad, it needs a mention.

Presentation

The game looks identical to the previous 2 in the series. Literally no difference in quality. The environments are competently put together, and the unreal engine lighting effects work decently in the low light environment the game takes place in, But there are many more things wrong than right with the game's presentation. Visually, character models look dated, and textures are often quite low resolution. Animation is jerky and unnatural. Lip-syncing is off, voice acting is terrible, just absolute crap. Music is so bland and uninteresting, that I hardly realised there actually is any music in the game. There isn't many good things to be said about Adam's Venture 3's presentation, and what little there is hardly outweighs all the bad aspects of it.

Gameplay

Gameplay in the series revolves around "Uncharted style platforming" and little progress puzzles. The uncharted style platforming (or rather Tomb Raider style platforming) would have been alright, if it wasnt for the absolute terrible controls. Playing the game is an exercise in frustration when it comes to the platforming aspects, and it's a shame, because of all three games, Revelations has possibly the best puzzles in the series (which isnt honestly saying much). The puzzles take a little bit of effort to complete, and are generally decently put together, But again compared to other puzzles in other games, they are still fairly mediocre.

Verdict

If you can avoid Adam's Venture, please do. It is one of the worst games I have played, with terrible controls and ♥♥♥♥ty writing, it fails in its proclamation of the Christian message. It is actually a shame, as with a little more effort put into, well everything, Adam's Venture could go from being a turd of a game, to just another mediocre Indie game.

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. Because of what had happened in the first game, I expected big things with this series, but this third game gave a very tepid conclusion for this series. And it boggles my mind as to how they think it is perfectly natural that the female character would be romantically interested in the main character.

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.

Again, same as my previous 2 reviews and this is no exception. It took a little over 2 hours to complete with 15 easy achievements and another game you can put on your perfect game list.
