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
+Performs well on high settings even on my medium PC
+/-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
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.
