Reversion Chapter 2: The Meeting is the second in the Reversion series by 3f Interactive, and this time around there's a physical price tag on it to continue the journey. So you have just escaped the hospital and are now on your way to meet up with someone who might know about the mysterious man that is in a picture that happens to be on your person. Now of course you can't get a straight answer without a little bit of help in return. So this episode is basically all about finding out about the gentleman in the picture.
Graphically is the same game, so I can't say that there's any difference. Now that's not a bad thing, it means that they didn't go off the reservation and try to re-invent the wheel. Yet again you are going to be introduced to an assortment of characters which all look unique and really fit the parts that they will be playing in this game.
Sadly the voice acting does not get any better, its still almost robotic, there's no real emotion in the the characters. It almost feels like they are all so full on mood inhibitors that the only thing they can do is just tell you what is going on, but deadpan.
The controls are the same as well, and that of course, once again is a good thing.
Alright so in this chapter, in which you have to put money down to play, you will be running around doing puzzles, and solving a couple of mysteries. You will get to see a college, a subway, a grave yard, a broken down building, a ransacked house, and you will get the chance to revisit the hospital. Once again there will be a good balance of combining objects and puzzle solving involved to complete this chapter.
Now I know there are a lot of you out there who want me to cut to the chase and tell you is it worth the money to play the next chapter. Well here's the deal, even though the developers are charging you for this chapter the game length does not increase, well I think it increased by a whole 4 or 5 minutes. Honestly I was really disappointed in seeing this. I now understand that the chapters are indicators of when the episode will end. In the first one you escape, end of chapter. In the second one you are building up to a meeting, and of course as soon as that happens, end of chapter. This game looks too good, and feels like there is so much more there to be SO short when it comes to game play, but sadly that's what it appears that the developers are doing. Here's hoping that the next chapter has a couple of big moments that will allow a player to really get emerged into the world before closing the chapter. With that being said I have to give this chapter an even lower score and put it at a 5.6 out of 10. I hate to do it, but when you put a price tag on a game, people expect more, especially if you gave the first chapter away for free.
