When I first started this game I was slightly apprehensive, I didn't quite like the animations of the game and I was on the verge of quitting. Thankfully I didn't!! The Book of Unwritten Tales is one of my favorite games ever. Lovable (and hateable) characters that with their well-written and witty dialouge kept me entertained throughout a game that references and makes fun of so many of my favorite fantasy adventures.

So for you people who love point and click (a plus if you're a fantasy fan) I whole-heartedly recommend this game.

Okay let's be clear about this. I am not a fan of point and click advantures and with VERY few exceptions I never have been. I generally think it is a genre that has been dying out with good reason. The recent RASH of the things has done little to change my opinion....and, of course, here it comes, BUT. But the main reason for PnC games generally being more irritating than fun is that they contain puzzles that are not logical. This game is different. Using items is not a case of randomly picking up and trying every damned item with every hotspot or other item but rather a logical process that makes complete sense. Overlay this core fact with an entertaining story and good production values and you actually get a decent game from a much misused genre - and here it is.

I really like point and click games, and so far I'm enjoying The Book of Unwritten Tales because it's a pretty game, the storyline is interesting and the characters are adorable. I play it to relax at the end of the day. The only thing that I didn't like in the beginning was that you have to explore the item before you can grab it, and sometimes it got a little bit annoying, but I'm used to that right now. It's a game I'd recommend for someone who likes point and click, wants to relax and enjoy a nice story :)

This is cute, light, and funny.
Its not a deep, complex, or thinking game - it could be played by 8 year olds
There are no decisions to make, and you cannot make an error. Not a puzzle game, and not really a true adventure. If you don't mind the conventions of a point-and-click, then you would enjoy this. The experience is like clicking through a movie, imagine playing the movie 'Shrek' and you have an idea of whether you'll enjoy it or not.
The strengths are the voice-acting, the graphics. The comedy is a plus, but not their strongest point.
The weakness is that it can still manage to be tedious, and you turn off your brain to play.

This game is a must have if you are a point & click lover. The puzzles are logical and most of the time it is not that hard to figure out what you have to do. The humour is one of the strong points of the game. There are references to movies like The Lord Of The Rings or other point and click games like Monkey Island. The humour is really good. Visuals are also very good. You will see some pretty enviroments and the character models are also not that bad for a point & click game. The sound is also very good, the voices are very well done. The story is also very nice. It's currently 19.99€ and that is a nice price for it if you are a point & click lover.

The Book of Unwritten Tales is a 3D point-and-click adventure game set in a fantasy world. The game consists of 5 fairly lengthy chapters, although the last chapter was very short compared to the others. The Steam page says the game has about 20 hours of gameplay, but it only took me about 11 hours.

The graphics are pre-rendered in 16:10 aspect ratio, which means that on other aspect ratios there will be black bars on the sides. I have a 16:9 monitor so there were a bit over 1 cm wide black bars on each side of the screen. Aside from that minor issue the graphics are good and the environment looks very detailed.

The story is good, although it's a pretty standard fantasy story. You must find a powerful artifact and not let the evil forces get it. The somewhat silly world and the charming characters make the story a lot better. For example there are 2 NPCs playing a fantasy RPG, in which they must fill tax forms and do other mundane real life tasks. The dialogue is also pretty funny and contains several nods to other games like the Monkey Island series.

I found the puzzles to be easy and simple. I never really had to look for any items as you could get almost all of them on the first time you entered that area. The interactable hotspots disappeared once you no longer needed them or if you had interacted with them for a couple of times. You also had to interact with everything once before you could pick it up, which I learned pretty quickly. That basically meant that all the hotspots remaining after going through them all would be used in a puzzle. The inventory system made everything even simpler as the game showed a text when you could combine two items.

The game is fully voice acted and I thought the voice acting was pretty good. The music wasn't that great, but it was often barely noticeable. There are subtitles available in the game, but they don't show during the few cutscenes the game has.

I thought the game was good and recommend playing it, if you like point-and-click games.

What the hell was I doing in 2012?

The Book of Unwritten Tales is an old-school fashioned point-and-click (P&C) adventure which essentially catches you off guard right from the beginning. As the story unfolds from a simple quest in finding and retrieving a secret powerful artefact before the forces of evil in the vein of The Lord of The Rings, its strong and well-written narrative creates this deep and intriguing light-hearted story that always makes you wonder what is going to happen just around the corner. Not only that, but as the story progresses in its artistically breathtaking environments, it genuinely gets better and better throughout its impressively 17+ hours long story. While admittedly it is not the most original story on the surface and some of the animations can break the immersion at times, its rock-solid narration easily makes up for them.

To my surprise, the game features some of the best memorable and likeable casts I have seen in a very long time, with plenty of exceptionally written witty humour which mocks (and pays tribute to) almost every single fantasy and video game trope out there, enough for a handful of genuine laugh-out-loud moments. Whether it is J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels or World of Warcraft, you name it -- the game most likely covers it somewhere. Imposingly, the cast also features excellent voice acting accompanied by a fitting soundtrack when, well, when it feels like playing a soundtrack.

What has kept this generation from embracing P&C nowadays could be partially blamed at the inconsistent difficulty-curve caused by illogical and lack of inspiring puzzles in similar games, but The Book of Unwritten Tales fixes almost all of that. The puzzles here are logical and generally easy to solve throughout the game since it encourages you to explore all the hotspots without the game holding your hand along the way. Apart from the second last chapter in particular, the puzzles here should be solved by literally anyone who is willing to explore every single detail out there, and this game has an abundance of small, yet rich, details in places. Plus, there are plenty of interesting (and humorous) dialogues and the hotspots are indeed descriptive. More importantly, there is a constant flow of momentum when solving the puzzles, something I have not seen in many games like this in years, and that is brilliant. There is never that fear of being punished and getting stuck for long periods of time for a poorly implemented puzzle. To my enjoyment, a few of the puzzles were rather genially designed thanks to a character-selection mechanic which allows the player to pick which character they want to perform certain tasks. While most of it comes down ultimately to a specific character being able to perform the certain task, it is a satisfying experience to see everyone working as a group to solve a puzzle, although I strongly feel like this is where the game missed an opportunity to expand on this mechanic.

Just when the game seems to hit the nail on the head in every single aspect of a classic P&C adventure game (and beyond?), it drops the ball really heavily just at the end in one of the most abrupt endings I have seen since Dreamfall, without any sense of climactic fulfilment. It is clear that the ending was left open for a sequel, yet it was poorly executed -- causing more questions than answers. The last five minutes, including the final cutscene, felt more like the developers ran out of time and had to release the game as soon as possible, with little time spent on writing a conclusive and plausible ending. It painfully feels like the story ends halfway through the chapter, subconsciously knowing there has to be more. It is rather sad because everything up to this point was meticulously and well executed. You would honestly be surprised by how such ending can instantly change you from an enthralling mood to a pokerface the moment you see the credits rolling. That was very, I repeat, vey underwhelming.

Conclusively, The Book of Unwritten Tales is the closest thing to a Monkey Island experience in my book. While it does not blatantly rely on nostalgia and references from past classics to suck you in, in fact, it does have its own charming personality. It basically takes almost everything that worked in the past and improves it, or more fittingly modernising the formula, while still keeping that old-school feel of the golden-era of LucasArts/Sierra games and at least trying to break the status quo set by those classics. I can easily say that this is one the best accomplished modern adventure games I have ever played in a very long time and can also say that it will stand the test of time as far as P&C games are concerned. It just falls slightly short from a masterpiece status thanks to its unjustified ending, but The Book of Unwritten Tales is a prime example of how P&C should be tackled for new and old audiences in times like these where military shooters and other saturated AAA-titles seem to take the spotlight in the media. There is more passion and product value in this than in many titles out there and I am glad I actually got to play this, eventually. What an unforgettable and delightful experience all around.

Like I said earlier, what the hell was I doing in 2012? I shall not repeat the same mistake in 2015 when the sequel will be released.
