The first chapter of Reversion was a mildly entertaining, if rather exceedingly traditional point and click adventure game with the undeniable benefit of being entirely free. Chapter two, "The Meeting", now carries with it a price tag but also comes along with rather significantly less charm, cascading the first's amusing silliness for a melodramatic plot full of outrageous performances and exposition with any movement.

From start to finish The Meeting accomplishes almost nothing in advancing Reversion's plot, spending most of its time forcing you to solve inscrutable puzzles typically only difficult in so far as the clunky interface is proficient at making simple tasks intuitive and buried within interaction menus. I was leaning on a guide for much of the hour or so long chapter, as the in game hint system is fairly useless, and everytime I reached for a better walkthrough I was met with a terribly simple solution which usually involved clicking on an object more than I had reason to believe I ought to.

Amid the tedious fiddling with each and every random item The Meeting is stuffed full of agonizingly tone deaf performances of the abysmal dialogue, which would be almost delightful in its mediocrity if it wasn't so intent on being absolutely serious, outside of some groan inducing attempts at humor. Characters are practically caricatures of caricatures, with no personality outside of their cliched roles and grating voices, with nothing to say save a continual chorus of "there's no time to explain."

I'm not sure exactly what happened between chapter one and two. Maybe it's been too long and I didn't enjoy the first as much as I thought I did, or perhaps I simply expected more from the sequel as it was no longer this random novelty but actually trying to create a full season length experience. Whatever the case "The Meeting" was an unexpectedly dreadful followup to something that seemed if not promising, than at least a potentially enjoyable diversion, but which I now cannot see myself coming back to regardless of whether or not chapter three ever shows itself.

When I first played the original Reversion, I was interested to see how the story would progress. Not to say anything bad about The Meeting but they've kind of got me thinking "Where exactly are they going with this?", in terms of story anyway. It's an easy point and click game with simplisitic puzzles and moderately bad english voice acting but I still enjoyed it. Looking forward to the 3rd chapter.

I played the first, so I knew what to expect. This is more of the same. It's a very simple game to proceed through, with some simple discovery and problem solving. I bought it in a bundle so maybe paid less than US$0.30 for it (Indie Gala Monday #38, was $1.89 now $2.19). Definitely worth the money in that situation, but if someone paid $5.99 I think they would be unhappy.

There are some glitches in the translation from Spanish to English, but for an indie, that does not bother me much. If you can find it for USD$1 or less, I think it is if you like point and click adventures. I think that someday the whole set will be in a reversion bundle of some sort, and that might be something to consider.

5 / 10 @ under $1

Note: If you are an achievement hunter (I am) then this is 25 in about an hour of play, so it is likely a higher score. There are also cards so it was essentially free for me.

Continuing with the trend of being an easy 100%able game, this game expands on the original story, while somehow ending in another cliffhanger while being located under a building

this is chapter two, and the first chapter’s free. even after completing chapters one and two i feel like i haven’t even finished the introduction. it feels like the entirety of the story so far has been setup, but there are no more chapters available on steam so no payoff. the voice acting, animations, controls, and english translation are still bad enough you can’t help but notice, but this time it isn’t free. maybe get this if you really enjoyed chapter one (but don’t expect the story to go anywhere yet), or if you grew up in buenos aires.

Well, pretty much the same as the first chapter, bad writing and bad voice acting but decent graphics and all-in-all a serviceable point and click game. Got it in a bundle and wouldn't pay full price. Pick it up for an easy 100% when it's on sale.

Second part of a trilogy takes one hour more to complete the story line, but it's still very short and miserable.

This game is very short but still very enjoyable!

Pros:
* I especially liked its visual style: very bright and cartoonish. And it is some kind of post-apocalyptic world, imagine that!
* The story is nice - and it promises much more for the future. Science fiction combined with the said post-apocalyptic setting and made a little bit funny - that's quite an original approach.
* Classic adventure gameplay: many items in your inventory, including a lot of red herrings.

Cons:
* For me. there is only one serious shortcoming, and It could be repeated many times: the game is just too short, unfortunately. Even combined with the free Chapter 1, it could be played through in about half an hour. Well, there is still a hope that more chapters will come soon, and as a whole it would be much more lengthy.

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.

[Taken straight from my Desura review]
Nice little indie point-and-click game. TL/DR? Skip to my conclusion at the end.

First, I have to say I like experiencing foreign language/culture in games and movies, so for me I was interested to see how this played out in this and the 1st Chapter (which I played back to back). After finishing the two games, the setting of Buenos Aires did play a small part, with all the Spanish signs and stuff.

The graphics are clean and interaction wasn't too bad. Load times are good, and there is no major waiting between screens. One thing I didn't like however was that the movement is too slow - i.e. when crossing a room - you can double click on the other side of the room to speed things up, but if you don't click in the right place, you either don't get the guy to cross any quicker, or you inadvertently move to the next room or screen.

The background music was well done and nice, while not imposing on the dialogue. The English voice acting was acceptable, although Victoria's tone seemed a little weird, like the actor who voiced her didn't speak English as their first language. All the other voice acting seemed fine though.

I guess my biggest gripe about this game is it's length. There is quite a bit of clicking through dialogue, but it still only took me about 3 1/2 hours to play the whole game (BOTH chapters). The second biggest gripe is it's left on a bit of a cliffhanger - will there be another chapter? If not, I'm pretty disappointed with the ending; yes there are a few questions answered, but there are far too many left unanswered. Chapter 2 has been out for over a year now, I really hope we have another chapter to really finish things properly.

In conclusion, a pretty good game for what appears to be a small devteam, I just would have wanted to see more. Good value? Hmm, well I did like it, I am just disappointed there wasn't more game time - I usually estimate $1 per hour of gameplay, and this didn't deliver that (based on the full price). Maybe Chapter 3 will change my mind on that...

Was greenlit as a free to play game, isn't, is rather dull, poorly animated and clearly part of a game that should have just been released as a whole game, not in several episodes to make you spend more and make the game just pointlessly seperated. Does not work in any form as a chapter, is just a chunk of a game, and not worth the price.

A short but sweet point and click adventure set in a future Buenos Aires after an, to the player, unknown event.

The game faetures a three verb interface and moderately large inventory which is both easy to use and adds enough complexity to make for some not straight forward puzzles. Said puzzles are a minor step down from the previous, free chapter though and a few are a bit on the obscure side, but overall I enjoyed puzzling myself through the game. And where the story was mostly absent in the previous installment it starts going places in this chapter. Enough so that I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next.

Reversion - The Meeting is not without its issues though. The animation is still a bit awkward at times and I could have wished for some more depth in the character models. The English version is also a bit strange and obviously translated by a non-native speaker. Some might also find it a bit short for the price, and especially so because it's only one part of a series. The first chapter is free though and if an upgrade option to the whole game from this chapter is offered once the next chapter is out, I'm satisfied.

To be fair, Reversion - The Meeting is probably as bad as the first episode in terms of its terribly short length, poor voice acting, dull music and clumsy dialogue. What makes it worse though is the fact its poor UI has the potential to make you go on a wild goose chase to solve this episode's puzzles. To cap it all off, you're expected to pay money for this episode for a pretty average experience when you could play the first episode for free. If you're curious about the game, make sure you try the free first episode before deciding to buy the second. If you like it and are prepared to pay for the same amount of gameplay, then give Reversion - The Meeting a shot. Otherwise, avoid.

After playing the First Chapter of the game sequel. I can say that i quite enjoy the game. However, when come to the price tag for the 2nd Chapter of the game. It not worth the money for what you paying for, the game is quite short for the price to be worth of. If the 3rd Chapter of the game is cost as much as this one and as short as this one, not going to spend any peny for it.

Reversion - The Meeting topped the first part "The escape" in everyway possible. This time the player had to travel between locations and had a lot more puzzles to work out. By this point of the story the cast of charcters is now building up with new introductions. If you enjoyed part one then you'll love part two. We hit a cliff hanging climax which all fans love to see. A personal favourite of mine is the music, especially the games main theme. It had been a week since I last played "The escape" and I was waiting till I had money until I bought part two (obvioulsy) I downloaded "The meeting," loaded it up and was greeted with the awesome theme. I had a grin from ear to ear. Reversion - The meeting is a really nice allround game, puzzles keep you thinking and the story keeps you hooked. There is one problem though. There's a problem with the achievement you gain for beating the game in under four hours. The game needs patched, it doesn't effect you enjoying the game which is a good thing. Please patch the game 3F Interactive.
