Be a companion to the good doctor and build a long lasting relationship with an intradimensional being that has lived for eons in all kinds of different manifestations!

Sadly bowties over scarves does cheapen the experience.

Why I like it? The storys are great, they could be an episode with a little tweaking. The graphics are amazing, everybody in the show looks like themselves in the game (apart from Rory, who looks completely different). If you think it's just like the first Doctor Who game on Steam don't. Every problem in the Eternity Clock is not in this game. You get five storys, 4 with Amy, and then one that's a little bit longer and includes Amy and Rory called "the gunpowder plot". I spent 12 hours playing it through, but there is a lot of replay value. You get everything thing you pay for, and I don't regret my purchase one bit.

It doesn't look bad but the gameplay is boring even for an adventure game and few easy puzzles don't change it. I'd rather recommend to (re)watch Doctor Who series instead of playing this game.

The Adventure Games, when first released for free online, were the closest we we would get to a true Doctor Who video game. Then they disappeared, before later appearing here on Steam for the hefty price of £14.99. I ignored it for a while, but then they were part of a sale. As a Whovian, I couldn't ignore such a cheap price, so I bought the game and prepared for some heavy nostalgia.

These games are difficult to review; they aren't very good, but they're not bad either. The levels are repetitive, and the graphics leave a lot to be desired. However, the series is fun. It's addictive collectible gameplay prevents gamers from getting bored, and for software clearly targeted at children, the material does have mature moments and clever references.

I suppose the game is fun, and I would recommend buying it, but only when it is in a sale. The game is worth spending money on, but not fifteen quid. :D

In my opinion the best Doctor Who game, considering that there aren't many good ones.
Pros:
+Music (Murray Gold's awesome incidental music fits perfectly into the action)
+Voice Acting (Provided by the original actors, it somewhat lacks the energy from the show but is forgivable)
+Story (Doctor Who games almost never fail to bring a good story, with its great monsters and never-ending possibilities)
+Atmosphere/Setting (Doctor Who can run wild with its locations, thus it is can place random things at random times and places without being questioned for it)
+Characters (Standard friends/baddies from the show, and perhaps a few new faces)
+Modelling (Every character looks very alike their real life counterparts. Except Rory, god they ruined his face)
+Cards (This one is kind of cheating but if you're a Doctor Who fan, you would have always wanted this. Plus, card designs are nice)

Cons:
-Gameplay (Controls are somewhat messy, mechanics are too easy)
-Graphics (Not all that important, and considering it was made in 2011)
-Replayability (Playable for about 2-3 times to collect everything and before getting bored of the story)
-Length (Episodes are about an hour or so each, so this game can be complete in under around 6 or 7 hours)
-Crafting rewards (Another cheat, basically cancels out the above pro. Expected better badges, emoticons and backgrounds but hey, Dalek emoticon)

Basically,
8/10 for Doctor Who fan (familiarity is what this game relies on, as the fans would understand and forgive all the cons to make way for the pros)
6.5/10 for non-Doctor Who fans (non-fans most likely would not understand much about the show, characters, music, stories, and monsters, and therefore the pros would not affect them much, and the cons would overpower the good aspects. Go watch the show!!!)
Wibbly-wobbly, but still worth playing at its price.
