Om dette spil

Adam’s Venture is an adventure game franchise that is focused on non-violent gameplay set in the early twenties of the 20th Century. With state of the art Unreal 3 graphics providing colorful and lifelike 3D environments, a gripping storyline and many puzzles to solve varying from easy to difficult, Adam’s Venture supplies everything that an adventure gamer is looking for.

In Adam’s Venture 3: Revelations, you get to experience a flashback Adam has to earlier events in Oxford, which have set his adventure into motion. Left for dead by the megalomanic Clairvaux leader in Solomon's collapsing palace, Adam relives his first meeting with Evelyn and their expedition to the small French town of Luz. Templar secrets, powerful corporations and the importance of keeping a promise all fight for attention in his feverish mind. Will he come to his senses in time to save Evelyn and the day? It's up to you in this third installment of the episodic series.

Pretty simple game and the graphics are good. The voice acting is so-so; there's a lot of sarcasm in the voice acting dialogue. The achivements are all attainable but some can be missed if you don't pay attention to detail. Just like the previous 2 episodes of Adam Venture, this is quite rewarding and puts an end to a well done trilogy. I reccommend this game.

7.5/10

I'm mildly sad to give this a thumbs-down after recommending the first game as a simple but engaging game. The franchise just got worse through the trilogy and the third game was just tedious.

It wasn't that the dialogue is cheezy (it was from the very first game) or that the controls are clunky (that hasn't changed either), but that the puzzles seemed to me to be FAR more tedious and the plot completely fell apart.

The first one kept some Indiana Jones flair going, which was what appealed to me as a HUGE fan of the Indy franchise, but they just couldn't, in my opinion, keep momentum to the end of the trilogy.

The fact that there is not one fully likeable character throughout the whole series doesn't help. Adam is the best of the lot because he is sometimes genuinely funny, but he also comes out with some crap that makes me cringe. Evelyn just does not come off right to me; its better in this game than the second, but she comes off as a ♥♥♥♥♥y know-it-all throughout the series. And the villains are just great big bundles of overused plot devices.

I just can't, in good conscience, recommend this one, especially with a meager 100 minute play time.

TL;DR: Nice conclusion of Adam's Venture series of puzzle adventures.

Let me start by informing you that you should really be looking at Episodes 1 and 2 first or else you'll probably be rather confused of the plot and its twists in this one, because Episode 2 ended in a tense cliffhanger. Nevertheless, I'll keep this review free of any significant spoilers.

Series puts you in the boots of Adam Venture, an adventurer-archaeologist of less renown than he thinks. However, he and his father's research group have made an interesting archaeological lead and got basically unlimited funds from a suspicious Big Corporation to go about it. While in Episode 1 and 2 you were investigating the fruits and twigs of this arrangement, Episode 3 begins by showing how it all actually started before rolling you back to resolve the cliffhanger. Quite a nice way to build the pace towards the climactic ending, really.

Episode 3 has by far the most difficult puzzles of the series, which is only a good thing. Especially the lock puzzle (however bizarre it is to have it there in the first place) of the beginning was deliciously challenging to the point of being frustrating. It took me several hours of trying to solve the multi-linear equation I devised to model it until I saw the simplicity behind it. Why'd father have to lock the door with such an elaborate design I can only account to his eccentricities.

In effect the puzzle difficulty is stepped up (still a good thing) but for many of them their placement makes less sense than in Episode 2. To list a few examples defusing an explosive makes sense (and it's cool!) as does fixing a windmill or car, but a logic puzzle door lock does not, several labyrinths on the way out of tomb make even less sense (to me anyway) and quite frankly a puzzle of arranging ladders to get up a bookshelf just feels forced.

Graphics are fine but the dynamic shadow issue of characters has bugged the series all the way from Episode 1. So characters have a shadow but it looks wrong because the shadows of other objects behave differently. For instance, standing on a rock might show Adam's shadow but not the rock's: effectively Adam's shadow hangs on the ground, starting from nothing like he was levitating in mid-air. This becomes relevant again in few instances in Episode 3 where you have to do some basic 3D platforming and assess where you are jumping. There's not much of it but combined with the fixed camera angle it's moderately annoying.

If you already played Episode 1 and 2 you should know what to expect from Episode 3. It's good enough to enjoy but not a classic-worth puzzle adventure. After the cliffhanger of Episode 2 it is fairly obvious to an average player how the story unfolds. Curiously enough they have managed to tie the Bible-themed subtitle to the plot even in the conclusion chapter in both of its meanings.

As a single game, Episode 3 is nice but it wouldn't make right to regard it separately of the series. The series itself has an interesting story, annoying but not totally unlikable stereotypical characters and some very nice puzzles that make you feel clever if you solve them yourself. My game time with the series was about 2.5 to 3 hours per game - this third one took 3.5 hours, out of which about 1 hour was overthinking the lock puzzle while in-game. That makes it a shortish series. I'd recommend getting all of it with The Complete Pack on sale (like this week it's -75% / 3.25 €) as it is already several years old series and it shows.

Adam's Venture is a simple puzzle adventure game that has an Uncharted feel, yet has no action and has very repetitive puzzles. The game is broken up into 3 episodes, where each episode is about 90 minutes long. The character's movement is glitchy which can cause some issues during some platforming sequences. The graphics and voice acting are OK, however if you're looking for an adventure game you should look towards games made by TellTale or LucasArts.

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?"
