It is a good game for hardcore fans of Doctor Who.

But...

It gets boring after a while and is pretty bad-looking. Sometimes the voice acting is horrible and the game is rather buggy and i ended ut restarting the game several times.

I choose to put this game as recommended, because it brings some nostalgia to me as a Doctor who fan <3

Great Scott! We're in 1955, Marty! We need to...
Use the TARDIS to get some magical time vortex thingy? Maybe I'm looking at the wrong game.

Compared to Doctor Who: The Adventure Games, this is the greatest thing to ever have been created.
Even with that comparison, this game is pretty good.

Pros: The plot is interesting, the controls are easy to use, the puzzles aren't too easy or too hard, there are plently of collectibles to fill your meaningless life with, and the voice acting is well done and funny.
Cons: The only complaint I have is the NPCs that follow you. I swear, Riversong is out to get me. She cannot do anything by herself, and will consistently perform the same mistake OVER AND OVER.

Overview...
This game is pretty good, and I'm surprised at how well this game managed to be. It's a simple platformer, but with 3D aspects. If you're a fan of Doctor Who or someone looking for a good game, you're in the right spot.

9.99/10, still mad at River

This is my very first negative review of a game, it's frustrates me that it has to be on a Doctor who game. I wanted to love this, after loving Doctor who the adventure games I thought that I would enjoy this. I began playing it for my youtube channel and cringed at how badly designed and frustrating some of these levels are. The bank level is very boring and gets on my nerves every time I play it as it doesn't showcase Doctor who games at their best. The second level was more on the right track as you control River and you have to escape the prison. I enjoyed this level alot and found it very enjoyable, but alas I was about to endure one of the worst poorly designed levels I've ever played in a video game. The cybermen level is terrible, after I played this mission I knew I just wasn't going to enjoy the rest of the game. I've tried given this one a shot a couple times but it's very different to "Doctor Who: The adventure Games". Go grab your $10 and save it up to buy Doctor who: The adventure games. This one was a miss I'm afraid.

Gameplay - 1 out of 5 (The second levels gameplay is fantastic and was on the right track, but the rest of the levels have terrible gameplay compared to it).
Characters - 3 out of 5 (The characters are played by the actual cast members, which is fantastic however the dialogue lets down the characters in this game)
Aliens - 1 out of 5 (Why do they have to use "The Daleks" and "The cybermen" why not use aliens or villians we fans haven't seen in the television series for a long time. Why not bring back "Omega"? Loads of classic "Doctor Who" fans would enjoy playing as Matt smith and defeating Omega!

Overall this game was a miss. Go spend your 10 dollers on Undertale or ten hamburgers at Hungry Jacks. If you enjoyed this one than thats great! Why not say in the comments what part of the game you enjoyed most! I'd love to hear! Thanks for reading, I apologize for my terrible grammar! Goodbye!

Being a big fan of Doctor Who, I was very anxious to try this game. While I can't say I was disappointed, it didn't wow me either. It isn't a horribly difficult game even on the hardest difficulty setting; however having said that it was challenging enough to keep me interested. The easy puzzles are pretty laughably easy so that was handy to go back and look for missing collectibles; as well as for some people who may like a little more relaxed approach to the game.

The game layout is basically a super 2d scroller- It has corners you can turn but it shifts the whole perspective of the game when you do. Left and Right are your only real movement options. Which is kind of annoying when you have to push a box over to climb a wall when you are literally right next to a stairway that leads to the same place.

I guess what it boils down to, for me at least, is if you are a fan of Doctor Who at all and want something to have a little fun with and occupy some time I would recommend it. If you are not a fan of Doctor Who, I recommend going to watch an episode or two and see if you change your mind :) With a 10$ price tag it is find of expensive for what it is, but worth it to me. I would give it an overall score of 6 out of 10.

As a huge Doctor Who fan and a gamer, I was so happy when I found out Steam had a DW game! The game follows The Eleventh Doctor (who is my favourite Doctor) and River Song as they look for the Eternity Clock!

Overall, the gameplay this game brought was very enjoyable! As a person who doesn't like puzzle games much, I found myself extremely into the game, and all its puzzles! The graphics are really good, and for a 3D platformer game, i was really surprised how amazing the game was!

I plan on replaying this game in the future, and plan to get all the achievements.

If you have some cash to spend, and you're a DW fan, I fully suggest you purchase this game.

Avant de commencer, il convient basculer les voix en VOSTFR car les doubleurs ne sont pas les mêmes que ceux de la série (ce qui en toute logique perturbe n'importe quel fan de Doctor Who). Hélas, il n'y a aucune d'option en jeu et il faudra renommer l'un des dossiers pour tromper votre ordinateur.

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock est un jeu d'énigmes et de plateforme. Vous interprétez le Docteur et serez assez souvent accompagné de River Song, dont l'IA est admirablement bien gérée en solo. Car un mode deux joueurs est possible - que je n'ai hélas pas testé. La durée de vie du jeu est d'une dizaine d'heures, même si certains acharnés pourront sans doute en venir à bout en une après-midi à peine. Mais ça vaut le coup !

Les points positifs : l'ambiance, l'humour, tout y est ; accompagné par un scénario efficace, qui vous réservera quelques surprises (à vous demander si cette drôle de statue, là, n'a pas bougé la tête alors que vous regardiez ailleurs l'espace d'une seconde...). Les énigmes se calent parfaitement à l'histoire, ce qui vous mettra la pression pour les résoudre rapidement (imaginez-vous avec vos ennemis sur les talons !). Heureusement, le jeu alterne à merveille les phases de stress et de détente.

Les points négatifs : certaines énigmes vous rendront la vie dure, car vous ne comprendrez pas de suite ce qu'il faut faire (malgré le tutoriel). La plupart ne sont pas si ardues et un échec aura pour seule conséquence de recommencer... mais d'autres vous obligeront à repartir du dernier point de sauvegarde. Rageant. Surtout si vous n'avez pas bien compris ce qu'on attend de vous. Les sauvegardes sont gérées automatiquement, si bien que parfois on ne sait jamais si une phase de jeu "plutôt éprouvante" réussie a été sauvegardée ou pas. Dans le doute, on joue encore un peu !

En conclusion : 9,99€ bien investis (ne dépensez pas davantage !). Le jeu aurait mérité d'être plus long et laisse entrevoir une suite, qui n'a hélas jamais vu le jour à ma connaissance. Horriblement dommage.
Je vous suggère enfin de vous rendre sur la page du Capitaine Sid, qui consacre plusieurs vidéos à ce jeu et à ses énigmes : https://www.youtube.com/user/TheCaptainSid2a

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, ou l'Horloge d'Éternité, et bien c'est avant tout un très bon jeu en ce qui concerne l'histoire et l'univers, regroupant les plus grandes figures de la série, des Daleks aux Cybermen en passant par les Siluriens. Il y a même quelques références par-ci par-là ! Vous pouvez même passer du Londres Élizabéthain au 22ème siècle sans aucun souci dans cette aventure ! Honnêtement, en ce qui concerne l'histoire de ce jeu, si vous adorez la série, vous allez être servis !
En ce qui concerne la jouabilité, j'ai trouvé intéressante la possibilité de pouvoir jouer à la fois le Docteur et River, permettant d'essayer deux systèmes de jeux différents ! Quant aux multiples mini-jeux et aux énigmes, je les ai trouvés très originaux et dignes de ce nom ! L'épisode avec les rails (ceux qui ont déjà fini le jeu verront de quoi je parle) était un très bon défi à relever, d'ailleurs !
Les collections du Docteur et River sont magnifiques, d'ailleurs ! Plein de petites références à la série classique et à la nouvelle, bref, un pur moment de plaisir à chaque fois que vous agrandissez votre collection si vous êtes un fana de la série !
La musique, elle, est tout simplement superbe à entendre, je n'ai rien à dire là-dessus. Le doublage français est d'ailleurs grandiose, même si ce n'est pas celui de la série. J'ai personnellement adoré entendre la voix de Guillaume Lebon interpréter le Docteur !
Les graphismes sont impeccables, eux aussi, à part quelques petits mouvements de bouche un peu étranges que j'ai pu apercevoir parfois, mais rien de spécialement grave.
Hélas, quelque chose nuit un peu à la grandeur de ce jeu : c'est l'intelligence artificielle. Votre compagnon fera certainement des choses étranges parfois, mais surtout, causera quelques fois des bugs qui vous obligeront à recommencer le chapitre que vous jouiez, ou même, vous bloquera (je pense notamment à l'épisode du Pont de Londres II pour ceux qui ont déjà connu cette mésaventure...)
À part ce petit problème, tout est nickel dans ce magnifique jeu, et si vous adorez la série, je pense sincèrement qu'il vous plaira !

Doctor Who….. A franchise that spans 50 years, with over 750 episodes, tons of books, a massive fanbase which, as of the last few years has grown ridiculously and an array of famous actors and writers. Making a videogame out of it sounds like a good idea. A bunch of cash is generated from sales and some new fans are brought aboard as well.
However, if there’s one thing the videogame industry has never exceled at, is making videogames based on movies and TV series. And I don’t know which is worse: if the fact that a big Hollywood movie nowadays implies a videogame counterpart, or the fact that those counterparts always feel like they were made using the last remnants of the movie budget, and on a Sunday afternoon.
DW:TEC, of course, is crippled by this cash-grabbing mind-set and thus suffers considerably in most regards. But it does manage to get some things right. Let’s take a look.

The plot here is simple at first. Something or someone is causing a temporal maelstrom, and it’s up to the Doctor to stop it from tearing up time and space. Well, in a way, it’s mostly up to the TARDIS, since the poor girl acts as a plug, keeping the many holes in the fabric of time closed. Consequently, the TARDIS becomes slightly omnipresent. “Slightly omnipresent?” Well, yeah, since there are several time rifts and she’s keeping them closed, she is wherever there are any of those, which is….in several places simultaneously. Needless to say, moving her isn’t such a good idea in these conditions, so the Doctor is forced to use several time corridors that seem to pop out of nowhere with an unsettling accuracy, both time and space-wise.
Just as expected of a mess of this nature, along the way, the Doctor will face all of the major enemies of the most recent seasons, Cybermen, Daleks, the Silence and so on, each chapter being dedicated to outsmarting and defeating each one of these. All of this of course, while you go on with your quest of saving the universe once again and still be home in time for dinner.

Soon enough, you will most likely run into problems. Due to the 2-player nature of the game, and due to the fact that when you’re playing single your companion is as AI, several puzzles involving both players quickly become frustrating. Sometimes the AI will take too long to do what it’s supposed to do, or sometimes it might get stuck, meaning it won’t do anything at all, forcing you to restart from the last checkpoint. There’s also the fact that the enemy AI seems weird, being completely unable to notice you as long as they don’t face you, but if they do they will detect you even if there’s a thick wall between you and them. Some controls aren’t intuitive at all, especially elevator controls: some require you to use the sonic screwdriver, some others require you to just push up or down and others require you to press the action button. This might seem minor, but an inconsistency of this kind becomes a major annoyance, since you will be riding a lot of elevators and platforms.
On the other side of things, we have the configurations. The video options menu won’t save your chose settings, so you are forced to use the default graphic profiles (Low, Medium or High), which is also annoying (changing the config file directly had no effect whatsoever), and frequently, you will notice popping textures.

The puzzles are all pretty mediocre and easy even on the highest difficulty. The mind map puzzles were the most interesting idea out of all the challenges present here, but even those are easy to figure out. In here you have to correctly align an image in a circle by rotating its sections. In easy mode that’s literally all you need to do but in higher difficulties each section you rotate will simultaneously rotate other sections, each in a different manner, thus increasing the challenge. The platforming element is decent and for any Doctor Who fan, using the screwdriver to unlock doors and other shenanigans feels delicious. Too bad that is everything you will use in this game (besides River’s gun).

Still I can’t help but feel that this is quite a cheap cash-in. There was so much that could be done, and yet, we are left with a hollow game that consists in jumping across platforms, sneaking past enemies, and solving a few easy puzzles across the way. The collectibles don’t really add much to it, but at least there are several achievements for timed runs which will most likely make you do certain sections more than once. Good thing all sections are pretty small and can usually be done in under 10-12 mins each.

Another very disappointing point in this game is the TARDIS herself. How could such an important element of the whole DW universe be shoved aside and just used as a cheap way to have a simplified plot? Fiddling with the inside of the TARDIS would have been a dream for any DW fan, since there are endless possibilities as to what can be found inside (as seen in Season 7’s “Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS”). The control room is so pretty and detailed, and yet it’s used for nothing. The ONLY thing you do inside the TARDIS in this game is…….walk out of it.

Despite all its flaws, the game manages to get some stuff right. The ability to point your sonic screwdriver and use it to mess up with stuff is pretty damn funny, and it's pretty cool to personally evade and defeat the Daleks in a post-apocalyptic London, while listening to Matt Smith's occasional witty one-liners. That being said, some stuff, like the overall looks of Dr. River Song were totally uncalled for and are just a petty fan-service attempt.
So, in conclusion, if you’re not a DW fan and you’re just looking for a platforming game…….don’t bother. There are so many better alternatives out there for you, and this one doesn't really stand out. If you’re a big DW fan like me, go ahead and give it a try, you might like it.

~Review~
Doctor Who became one of my favourite TV-shows right from the start :D The story-writers are awesome geniuses and know how to make the whole plot of a season a "logical masterpiece".
In my opinion, this game's story is almost as fascinating as the TV-show's one. The behaviour, dialouges and the Doctor's comments on situations and remarkable things are 100% convincing ^^
The game is a funny little plattformer. I needed less than 5hours for one runthrough without any problems. Most riddles and puzzles are self-explanatory and there are wonderfully straight to the point explanations for the mini-games.
I recommend playing with a gamepad, because - in my opinion - it makes especially lockpicking with your screwdriver a lot easier and faster, but it's probably a matter of habit ; )
I, personally, enjoyed this game, although it does not have this depth, length and high-end graphic a really great Doctor Who-game would actually deserve. But in some ways it summarizes all important elements that contributed to the enormous success of the Doctor's fascination during the past 5 decades. All these incredibly athmospheric scenarios taking place in contrary eras of mankind featuring most of the creatures, the Doctor met during his journeys (except for Weeping Angels, unfortunately xD).
Some users complain about River Song's inadequate AI. I played this game March 2013 and did not notice any of those problems.

~Conclusion~
One should not expect a high-end game. It is rather a little adorable game for in between that completes your Doctor Who Collection and lets you smile about all those allusions to the Doctor's adventures ^^

Doctor Who: The Eternity clock stars, obviously, the Doctor and River Song from the 2010 Series of Doctor Who starring Matt Smith as the Doctor. He starts out after an anomaly in time stuck inside a Bank and must find his way out. Alternatively - the character River Song, starts out on a Prison as she has to make her way across the prison, get her stuff back and meet up with the Doctor in the timeline he's stuck on. It's a very 'Doctor Who' premise, which I really enjoyed.

One thing that must be noted, however - YOU WILL MOST LIKELY NOT ENJOY THE GAME AS MUCH IF YOU ARE NOT A FAN OF THE SERIES. This may seem obvious, but in all honesty - unlike games like TellTale's The Walking Dead series, you don't need to be a fan of the series /original source content to understand what's going on as it's pretty self absorbed as a story - this game is not. The game very largely depends on you having seen the show and understand who the Doctor and River Song are and why they do what they do - otherwise clever references made in nod to the show (which are a lot of them) will whizz right by you and you'll most likely end up feeling like you're missing something crucial. There is no "self absorbed" Character Development with either the Doctor or River, it is literally like an episode of the show.

The visuals are pretty serviceable. The Doctor and River, and of course the TARDIS are really well textured and done, but I feel the rest of the game was lacking that touch of polish. Some areas look very muddy, while some look like they weren't textured at all. Some NPC models had about the same issue - notably the Cybermen models - whom looked like a pretty standard mesh without textures and 'plastic-y'. The sound, however is masterful. Everything sounds like it has given special attention to care, even the voices to an extent. There's a lot to love if you're already a fan of the music found in the show like this theme which plays quite a few times during the game as well as the Title Screen having the full version of the 2010 show's theme.

The game play is very simple. The game is set to be a puzzle-platformer, a pretty standard one, but it works for what it tries to achieve. The puzzles aren't particularly tough to figure out, but some "mini game" sequences (like to activate consoles, open doors or work computers to unlock passageways, etc) are amazingly tedious at times - given the fact that they overuse them a lot.
*~> One has you redirecting "energy" lines to their sources, without them 'overlaying' so they "overcharge" the source, you do this by opening and closing lines/pipes. Usually these are done in multiple stages, they being timed - so if you run out of time and the puzzle is not complete - it will reset itself.
*~> Another one involves you opening and closing "gates" as blue and red energy flows down some lines - you need to open the gates for the blue source to pass and close gates to dissipate red sources - ultimate they culminate in a bar that you must fill up with blue source energy. This puzzle is, by far, the most aggravating nonsense I have ever played. On harder difficulties - the red sources come out so fast at times they they can confuse you as to which line they are coming through so you end up unblocking a wrong gate, or a blue source comes down so fast you don't have enough time to unblock it's gate, and if a red source hits, the screen shakes a lot allowing for some confusion as more sources keep trickling down - by far my LEAST favourite of the minigames - but these are NOT done in stages, however these are used a lot more towards the end of the game.
*~> Another mini game has you moving a small dot across a field of red dots that will "kill" your dot and force you to restart the field again - the field is usually divided in 3 sections, the outer side having the most space and most time to move your dot, a safe zone on between, a smaller zone beneath it, and then towards the center - you have less margins for error. Think of this minigame like "Frogger" in a sense. This one was, by far, the one I enjoyed the most. While it was being used a lot towards the end of game as well - this one never got too overwhelming or overly tedious that it crippled my enjoyment of the game.
There is an additional mini puzzle that comes in the way of matching waves in size, lenght and pattern, which involves the Sonic Screwdriver. You'll be doing this one a lot as well, as it is used for unlocking doors and occasionally defeating enemies.

On the "Platformer" side of things - there's not much to say. The Doctor and River handle fairly well. There's a bit of a stiffness to movement though, and it'll show more if you have to do a neutral jump (jumping without direction) because it's hard to get to ledges that aren't too far off you, but aren't close enough for you to grip on to them. Other than that, sometimes you move some crates and such to get to higher places - it's all very standard stuff here, but it works. River herself has a few different tools, like her gun, which you use the Right Stick on a controller to aim and RT to shoot - or use the mouse to hover and click to shoot - which you'll be using in a few segments during the game. I also have to give a special mention to the AI in the game... it is pretty horrendous. I had issues where River got stuck not jumping somewhere or not following (she is needed at times for dual puzzles) and the enemies break immersion a lot since as SOON as you're out of sight - they can still latch on to you (look at you) but won't chase you and give up and leave.

As far as replay value goes - unless you're already a Doctor Who fan, or are a completionist, there's not much incentive to replay the game. Sure, it has 3 stages of difficulty to beat the game through at, and a fair amount of item collectibles - such as the Doctor's many hats (as seen on the show) or River's diary pages (Spoilers!) but the tedious puzzles found in between may very well turn you off trying to beat the game again if it didn't already turn you off beating the game in the first place.

All in all though, I am a bit biased going into this review as I do love the show a lot, so obviously I got more into the notion of the game - however if you're not a fan of the show - AT ALL - or a fan of very standard, bare bones puzzle platformers I would honestly say "Skip this one."

Pros:
+Amazing Sound Design
+Very true to Source Material (References & Nods, Art style)
+Story is pretty cool
+Some puzzles can be fun

Cons:
-Terrible AI
-Poor stealth mechanics
-Puzzles can get tedious and awfully random
-Stiff movement
-No replay value
