About This Game

Deadfall Adventures is an action-driven first-person shooter, spiced up with elements from action-adventure games. Become an adventurer, hunt for treasures, explore unknown regions of the world and rescue the damsel in distress from the clutches of enemies, both earthly and not-so-earthly. Join James Lee Quatermain on his journey across the globe!

The Story

The year is 1938. James Lee Quatermain is a man of many talents, yet holding on to money isn't one of them. James is an adventurer by trade, just like his legendary great-grandfather Allan Quatermain. And he knows how to squeeze money out of this famous name of his, while at the same time despising it. Despising those who believe his great-grandfather's tales of the supernatural and those who make fun of them alike.


Accordingly, Quatermain isn't all too keen on escorting Jennifer Goodwin, an US agent and former colleague of his, to an Egyptian temple structure in order to retrieve an ancient artifact - The Heart of Atlantis. Neither does he believe in the reputed invigorating qualities of this artifact, nor does he care the least that a division of the Ahnenerbe, the Nazi department specialized in the occult, is after The Heart as well.

But life has its ways of changing one's perspective. Quatermain soon finds himself part of a hunt across the globe - from the stormy deserts of Egypt to the icy depths of the Arctic, and all the way to the steaming jungles of Guatemala. In long forgotten temple structures the thrill of the chase awakens the true adventurer in Quatermain, as he and agent Goodwin strive to be one step ahead of the Nazis and the Russians, one step closer to obtaining the Heart of Atlantis. And deep in these temples, where age-old guardians awake from their eternal slumber, James soon learns that his great-grandfather's stories are not as crazy as he had always believed. For all things live forever, though at times they sleep and are forgotten...

Deadfall Adventures is a first person action/adventure game made by The Farm 51. In Deadfall you play as James Lee Quatermain, an adventurer who struggles to live up to his legendary adventurer of a grandfather, Allan Quatermain. Quatermain's new job is to escort a US agent called Jennifer Goodwin through an Egyptian temple to find an ancient treasure which will eventually lead you all across the world killing mummies and chasing Nazis.

Deadfall is of course inspired by the likes of Indiana Jones and Uncharted and if you like those two things, or anything similar, chances are you're gonna have a good time playing this game. I'd also like to mention that at the time of writing my review I'm approximately halfway through the main campaign.

+Great graphics with good visual effects
+Great puzzles, they are challenging and often take a lot of thinking to solve but never feel too hard
+Combat difficulty and puzzle difficulty can be changed independently
+Interesting mix of genre
+Overall mediocre gunplay apart from an interesting mechanic involving mummies and flashlights
+Some cool locations
+Lots of hidden collectibles to find
+Relatively wide variety of weapons
+Good variety of enemies to fight
+Great atmosphere
+Performs well on high settings even on my medium PC
+Simple controls

+/-All of the humour in the game is very cheesy, personally not my cup of tea but others may enjoy it

-Bland voice acting
-I noticed a fair few typos and occasionally missing words in the subtitles
-Uninteresting story based around uninteresting characters
-Riddled with bugs and glitches
-Puzzle hints are almost entirely useless
-Checkpoints are few and far between
-Clunky animations

Verdict:
7

Despite some issues I had fun playing Deadfall with its good graphics, great puzzles and its interesting genre combination. If you're a fan of Indiana Jones style things then I suggest you pick this one up while it's on sale.

Super cheesy but actually pretty solid Indiana Jones style adventure that doesn't take itself seriously at all but yet still provides a solid adventure regardless.
The story itself is decent and the dialogue is intentionally cheeseball and pokes fun at itself often. The gunplay is solid. The backdrops are gorgeous. This is a very nice looking game. The puzzles were mostly easy, but there were a couple challenging ones mixed in.

If you are looking for a game similar to Indian Jones movies, or in the same style of a Tomb Raider or Uncharted (but without the production values), but with more humor, this is a game you should definitely try out.

Far more enjoyable than you would think just by looking at the product page. Well worth the 10 or 12 hours it takes to finish.

7.5 out of 10

I really enjoyed this game because the dynamic scenery was great and it takes some stealth sniper-style strategy alternating with head-on firepower bulldogging to make it through most of the tasks. The player animations were a bit off but it did not really detract from the action. The puzzles were fun as well.

For a 27 yr old PC gamer blasting away demons since DOOM, I have to say Deadfall is an amazingly fun game. Honestly, why hasnt anyone else though to do an ancient tomb crawling game based on and set in human history? Its excellent, and a very original idea for a game.. Honestly, it is one of the most beautiful games I have played through. The visual concepts and designs are just stunning. Gun play is, well... basic but excellent smooth gunplay. Fighting mechanics work how they are meant to, even if they arent anything extraoridnary. I would recommend this to anyone who finds themselves between big title games. The sloryline is pretty plain, but is still really easy to get sucked into, and play for 5 hrs straight. Somehow, it brought out the little kid in me... which is never a bad thing! Personal rating - 8.24999.
