Highly enjoyable point & click adventure game in the vein of Indiana Jones and Flight of the Amazon.
The artwork in this game is magnificent and every scene you step into looks astonishing and highly detailed. This is backed up with, for the most part, good animations as well.
As with similar games you get to travel around the world to interesting places to solve puzzles and clues to get to your final destination for a showdown. The puzzles are well thought out, creative and logical (to a certain extent). Apart from what seems a bit silly back and forth movement through scenes I found the puzzles and collecting quite entertaining. It is not very hard, but it's not a breeze either.
I found the game to be fairly long considering the lengths of other adventure games I've played. It is filled with a lot of storytelling and dialogue that might throw some people off, but for fans of the genre I would consider this game a must. I found the story iself both interesting and engaging for the most part, but it dwindled a little towards the latter part of the game. The story is mostly mature with a healthy dosage of cheeky humor which gave me a few laughs and nods along the way. I thought it suited the main protagonist, but some might find him a bit unlikeable. However, the voice acting in this game could be a lot better. It's not all bad, but it leaves a lot to be desired. I feel that better voice acting would have levitated the game to make it even more engaging and become more mainstream, though I can totally sympatize with development budgets for games like these at the time of release. Luckily we are entering a new era for adventure games that will hopefully raise the budgets of similar projects.
Not only is this game a must for fans of adventure games, but it should also be a good candidate for people wanting to test out the genre. I highly recommend it. I also look forward to the sequel that seems to be scheduled for sometime in 2014.
I rate this game 8/10
