Recensioner

“Act 1 of Broken Age is a gorgeous, impeccably written adventure that simultaneously tugs at my nostalgic core, while ushering in a new era for the point-and-click genre.”
9.5 – IGN

“...delightful, beautiful, utterly charming and you really should play it right this second.”
9 – Polygon

“I haven’t felt this surge of nostalgia and excitement about a game in a long time, and I truly think Broken Age will be looked back fondly as one of the greats.”
9.5 – Destructoid

This is a game in two parts, and unfortunately, I have to review it is such.

I can sum up part one in one word: Brilliant!

Here we have two characters in two seemingly unrelated situations. One has been chosen as a human sacrifice to a monster that has been terrorising the local villages for generations, the other is alone on a deep-space exploration vessel. You, as the player, have to guide these two through their own stories of "escape".

I found the story interesting, and then when the two characters briefly meet, then abruptly change places...

On to part two, and in a word: Disapointing.

After months of waiting, we get this lacklustre, almost generic point-and-click game that relies more on player knowlege than imersion in the story. I got stuck on several puzzles, only to discover that the solution requires finding something AS THE OTHER CHARACTER, totally destroying any immersion that I may have still had, and dumping me into the mode of "player behind the keyboard" instead.

And then, when the final solution required co-ordinating the actions of both characters at the same time, without either character even knowing what the other is doing, well, I guess that's the "Broken" part of Broken Age.

While I would like to recomend this game based on the first part, I just can't. Sorry.

Before Broken Age, I was never let down by Tim Schafers works. Granted most of his games weren't all that great as games - but they usually made up for that with a memorable cast, witty dialogue and great settings / stories. While Broken Age has some of that Schafer magic at times, it just doesn't feel like a whole package to me.

The "story" is hardly interesting and when you get to the great twist upon starting Act 2 there is nothing ever being built from there - in fact, the faction that gets briefly introduced is about the only thing I was interested in learning more about. And then the game ends it and they lived happily ever after. Calling the ending "abrupt" would be an understatement - it just stops without explaining anything or offering a satisfying conclusion. Act 2 also feels a lot like its "social commentary" was more important than anything else, because tonally it's different - particularly Vella's attitude changes somewhat and got on my nerves, while Shay overall just feels like filler from the get go.

It's a great looking game at times (when the low-res art isn't zoomed to a level where you can count every pixel) and sounds good, but I can't shake the feeling it was entirely pointless and like 75% filler-material. In fact, I believe an hour long animation could have achieved everything story-wise without being a mediocre adventure game. The way it is now, Broken Age suffers from terrible puzzles (again, Act 2 being really bad - like The Dig-levels of annoying, never wanting to rewire any robots any time soon), has a sucky save-system and controls that feel slightly off (perhaps because it is originally a tablet-game?).

Can't even say I am disappointed because this game is so "whatever" - but won't recommend it either, try some Wadjet Eye stuff instead.

I bought this game when the first episode was the only installment out, Broken Age was in my top 10 favorite games until the second chapter. In my opinion, the game gets significantly harder in such a way that I will most likely never replay it because of one specific puzzle. The 2nd chapter's storytelling feels lazy, and we never get to explore what could have been one of the most interesting areas, especially considering that the lead up to said city was something established since the beginning. Instead we briefly see it for about 3 seconds.

The second part overall felt rushed and lazy, it was so disappointing to wait 2 years for such a bland installment. Broken Age had such a large budget and loving crew that it is difficult to imagine how this happened, but ultimately it's just not good. Additionally, if you want any sort of closure, you have to watch the credits to get sketches of what happens after the end of the game. I'm not talking about extras either, there were drawings of what should have been integral parts of the ending.

The most frustrating thing is probably that our two protagonists still never get to speak to one another.

Act 2 of this game is pathetic. The puzzles were not puzzles so much as arbitrary things loosely linked and generally only discovered through pure trial and error. My guess is 80% of the people out there will just read a walkthrough. When you read a walkthrough for a good puzzle, you see the answer and think: "I could have figured that out, now that I see what I missed." No, almost every one of the puzzles in Act 2, I thought: "Wow, that was stupid. No one would figure this out without pure luck or outside guidance."

In addition to that, the story and background are flat. They just reused most of what was in the first Act, scattered some arbitrary and poorly thought out puzzles around, and called it a day. The 2nd half of this game takes a 5 star first half and makes the whole thing 2, maybe 2.5 stars at best. You can't produce trash in the conclusion of your game without ruining the whole thing. What a waste.

The "TL; DR" Version: don't bother buying and playing, just watch the playthrough on Youtube and only buy the soundtrack.

The "I have time to read" version:

I ended up being so unhappy with this game. The first half was GREAT! A lot of fun, challenging, and had hilarious dialogue. The second half, however, was HORRIBLE!

All of that work for nearly impossible tasks, extremely convoluted and "what the bleep was that?!" solutions, and characters that didn't grow or change. Not to mention that it was quite late in being released.

Tim Schaffer comes up with some awesome ideas, some of them successful, like the amazing Psychonauts, Stacked and Costume Quest games. Brutal Legend had a fantastic storyline and the greatest car playlist I have ever heard, but really bad battle dynamics.

This game though...poorly thought out, frustrating as all get-out and not worth your time. The villian made no sense; he was like Don John in "Much Ado About Nothing": a bad guy just to be a bad guy, no other reason. I ended up giving up on the second half of the game and watching a Youtube walktrhough and found THAT disappointing.

It felt like such a rip-off; I am so glad that I didn't back this game or else I'd be a heck of a lot meaner than this! Schaffer needs to be just an ideas man, pitching them to the big companies, and let other people develop them for him. In my own personal opinion, it was a huge bust and I regret buying the game.
