Any Doctor Who fan will love these mini-series games. Normally I prefer sandbox-styled games, but my love of The Doctor caused me to play this and I was not disappointed. The only thing I will complain about is, the episodes were not long enough! Give us more Doctor, we need The Doctor!!

Doctor who the adventure games is a game based of Doctor Who and has a set of episodes.
which include minigames, stealth, and pretty good stories.
Its more enjoyable if you like doctor who also i recommend watching series 5 atleast first.



The gameplay.
The gameplay is mainly stealthing around or collecting items and doing minigames.
The minigames are pretty simple but sometimes annoying or boring, ill give some examples.
You havea minigame whre you have to get a part to the middle but if you touch any lines it resets,
You have a minigame where you use you're sonic screw driver to open doors by getting on the same signal.
There are also collectibles with facts.
The stealth does what its supposed to do its not anything special,the game does have a companion dies you die mechanic which kinda sucks.
Sometimes you just have to pick up stuff from the ground and use them on other things.

Story.
The game has 5 “episodes” some are better then others.
The Main characters are voiceacted by the same people they are on the show.
I dont want to spoil the episodes so ill just give the order i like them the most
3-4-5-1-2

Graphics
There not much to say here theyre decent and it has proper resolutions
Only complaint i have it you have to press a arrow to see the higher resolutions took me a while to find out.

Music.
It uses some show music like when you complete a puzzle or at the end of a episode,
again not much to say here.


Final verdict.
Its an decent game with basic mechanics and mainly has its story going for it.
Buy it if you like doctor who if not maybe you shouldnt.

It's a very detailed puzzle game with alot of thought into it. The voices are genuine voices from the series, and if you are a Doctor who fan, this game will be perfect for you. It has great plots into it, and it feels like a episode from the series, just that you play the episode. I highly recommend this game for Doctor who fans.

If you are a Doctor Who fan, you will love this game. This is the ONLY reason this is getting a thumbs up. Its everything Doctor Who. Enemies, the use of the Sonic screwdriver, Tardis and the occasional british humor. The plus side its the actors actually voicing the characters.

However please keep in mind the following:

- Mouse controls are wonky. Some puzzles take longer because of this.
- You can NOT skip cut scenes. Don't fail something as you get to sit through the whole thing again. This also applies to replays.
- Climbing, jumping and doing actions seem to take FOREVER as the character needs to line up to preform the action
- In the Gunpowder Plot you get the oppertunity to fall through the enviroment.... over and over again

There were a few places where locating things became annoying. Overall I enjoyed the stories and the game seemed to at least progress at a decent pace. If your a Doctor Who fan this should end up in your game library.
