Not much to say about this except for that it's no way near as good as The 7th Guest. I've only played this for a short while and I'm really finding it to be a chore. Do yourself a favour and stick to The 7th Guest, it's much better than this.

11th hour is the second in my quest of playing at least an hour of each of the games in my Steam Library.

Obvious constraint of a 1995 game aside it was a very enjoyable time and I might try it again.
The game is a follow up to 7th Guest the 1993 hit which I hear is better game wise then 11th hour.
It is a FMV game of the era, puzzles & treasures hunt or the “padding” in between movies.
The puzzle are very clever and hard. The treasure hunts are VERY hard and border on the arbitrary at time with the constant use of anagram.
The story is interesting liking it to 7th guest nicely. I actually went on Youtube to watch a montage of all the cut scene in order which makes an interesting hour long movie.
All in all a fun nostalgia game.

Man befindet sich als Reporter in dem Haus des Spielemeisters Stauf. In diesem Haus soll man nach Spuren suchen, die einem zu der Leiche einer Frau führen werden. Bei der Suche trifft man auf die verschiedensten Rätsel, die einen vor so manche knifflige Aufgabe stellen.

Dieses Spiel ist aus dem Jahre 1995, daher schon etwas älter, dennoch hat es seinen eigegen Charm.

+
Knifflige Rätsel
Gegenstände, die einen Kurzfilm erzählen
Gamebook, falls man Hilfe benötigt
Tolle Atmosphäre für damalige Verhältnisse

°
(keine)

-
Musik kann manchmal etwas stören
Der Player stürzt ab und dann einfach mal so ab
Rätsel ziehen sich manchmal in die Länge

FAZIT: Wenn man mal langeweile hat, dann kann man es sich mal geben. Wer auf knifflige Rätsel steht, sollte zuschlagen.

Die Rätsel in dem Spiel sind nur teilweise interessant, die Umgebungen absolut unter dem akzeptablen Niveau. Eine viel zu geringe Auflösung und einige Absturz schwierigkeiten muss man überwinden. Die Zwischensequenzen hingegen gefallen mir recht gut, nur eben leider nicht in der Qualität die ich wollen würde.

Nicht zu empfehlen aus heutiger Sicht für neue Spieler.

Three reasons to buy this game:

* Challenging puzzles for people who enjoy frustration.
* A decent and interesting horror story.
* It's a very valuable piece of gaming history.

Three reasons NOT to buy this game:

* Cheesy cutscenes (but for some of us who like to laugh, it's a GREAT reason).
* Won't appeal to people who love HD games.
* The engine is outdated. Some people will have to fiddle with the game to get it running.

Now... for the review:

I have to admit that, like most people who played this game when it came out, I have fond memories of it: I used to play it with my family, in the weekends, when we usually took turns to solve the puzzles or to try to beat Stauf in Honey & Blood or the Rat Maze.

It's kind of sad, but I haven't played like that with my family and friends in a while. It seems like games rarely have that balance anymore. Most games nowadays are divided in two: A single player paradise with a flexible difficulty (so the player doesn't lose its appendix because of the frustration) or a multiplayer gore fest where rarely you understand what's happening anymore. Yeah, like most gamers, I also enjoy those kind of games, I know it's the evolution of gaming. However 11th Hour (and the 7th Guest) was a game which could be enjoyed with other people in a single gameplay and somehow, it seems it was meant to be played with the advice and skills of other people or it could be a very frustrating game.

You had to ask for help before the internet spoiled everything.

But time has passed and I know this game will barely catch the attention of new and young players. It's a shame. It deserves an opportunity, at least as a piece of history. The game has an interesting story but cheesy and low-res movies require some faith and imagination from the player; a suspension of desbelief and a willingness to enjoy what's happening or what's about to happen, regardless of the acting, or the 90s modelling and rendering. In my latest gameplay, although I knew most of the story, I could feel some scary or tense moments. The music is amazing, a true accomplishments (some puzzles are so difficult, that you could be listening the same tune for hours and you will hardly feel tired from hearing it).

Henry Stauf is a great character. It could be an icon like other popular videogame mascots.
