"Arctic Nazi Submarine Mummies? Any other time that might be unusual."Deadfall Adventures is a decent first person shooter, action adventure game, with fun puzzles and beautiful graphics, but with voice acting, dialogue, and repetitive combat that brings it down. Good idea that seemed rushed, unpolished, and left with untapped potential. Worth one playthrough of decent length, not much to come back for though.
+ Decently fun, good distraction
+ Some great puzzles
- A lot of tedious and/or boring puzzles
+ Combat is mildly entertaining
- Repetitive combatSome very cool, and interesting puzzles, surrounded by many tedious, boring puzzles that bring down the overall quiality of the game. Combat is fun but gets repetitive quite quickly, but having mummies and occasionally changing the weapons and appearance of enemies helps keep it sort of interesting.
+ Beautiful Environments
+ Amazing Graphics, the water, plants, ect, all looked great
- Not enough varietyAmazingly looking graphics and beautiful environments throughout the game. Plants, water, enemies, temples, everything looks well-polished, but what it makes up for in quality, it lacks in variety. Many environments ( which takes place in different parts of the world ) look almost identical with little variation.
+ Occasionally something interesting would happen
+ Decent story
- Slow quite often
- Painful, PAINFUL dialogue
- Clunky cutscenesThe story in Deadfall Adventures is mildly interesting at best, with only a few moments of actual true interest, despite it being quite predictable. Slow throughout the whole game, clunky cutscenes that are badly executed, and some of the worst dialogue I have seen in a game in a while. It was cringe worthy half the time and the other half I simply felt embarrassed for them.
+ Fun side puzzles occasionally
+ Feel like you're actually on an adventure at times
- Pretty linear path
- Minimal actual "exploration" (More just looking around in a decently sized area for a shiny)The exploration aspect is almost non-existent, however; they have mini puzzles when attempting to retrieve artifacts that make them interesting enough for me to look for them. You are basically on one path, look around the area for artifacts you can find, move on to the next area, and get locked out from going back, forcing you to replay an entire section if you wish to go back.
*Overall*I recommend this game, but get it on sale. It is entertaining enough to play through, collect what artifacts you can, and enjoy a decently engaging story (if you can get passed the very painful, and often times embarrassing dialogue).
Good for one playthrough, wouldn't go back for a second time, but good enough game to pass the time. Very good idea, but feels rushed and badly executed throughout. Decent combat and fun puzzles bring this game up, but frustrating, tedious puzzles, and repetitive combat situations bring the game down in quality and enjoyment. I personally did not try multiplayer as I have zero interest, considering I disliked the combat in singleplayer.
Buy it on sale.
