Runaway: A Twist of Fate, is the third and final (as of right now) entry into the Runaway game trilogy. The story, while leaping ahead a bit in time from the cliffhanger ending of Runaway: Dream of the Turtle, can be considered a direct sequel since it wraps up the events from that game.

If you have played either of the other two games, which is recommended if you want to know the full story, then you will be familiar with the control scheme. This is a point and click adventure, with the left and right mouse buttons used to explore and pick up items. In your inventory you can examine and combine items, and select them to use in the environment. The puzzles are on the same level of difficulty as the first two games. There are no ways to fail, so if you are having trouble just keep exploring and combining items until you find the solution. A nice addition is a button to press that will show you all the hotspots in an area. That definitely helps make some of the pixel hunting go a lot faster.

The graphics have seen a nice upgrade from the previous game. My biggest complaint, the character models, have been improved, and while still not the best, are more than serviceable. The backgrounds are as nice as they have been in the Runaway series.

The voice acting and sound continues to be done well. There are some new original songs in Runaway: A Twist of Fate. Plenty of effort has been put into making the sound top quality.

One of my biggest complaints of the series has been the underwhelming involvement of Gina. Although saving her is a main plot point of the first two games, she is never really present for much of the games. You have no chance to form any sort of attachment to her. That is addressed in this game, where you will be able to control Gina for large parts of the game. She almost feels like a new character, because you did not have much interaction with her in the previous games. Brian is clearly a different character than when he began the first game, but it makes sense after the adventures you have been on together.

Runaway: A Twist of Fate felt like the shortest game in the series. However, what is there is very enjoyable, and I would much rather play a shorter game that is filled with quality content than a longer game that wears out its welcome.

I fully recommend Runaway: A Twist of Fate. I felt like the previous game, Dream of the Turtle, was a drop in quality in the series, but the trilogy ends on a high note. An additional adventure in the saga of Brian and Gina would be welcome.

Excellent animation/visuals and great voice acting. Endearing characters with funny dialog really colors this game and makes the experience a lot of fun.

I think it's the easiest of the trilogy. the new hot spot system makes sure you don't miss anything in a room. If you really stuck there is a clue system inside the game which gives clues as simple riddles so that you don't feel too bad for seeking help. The game looks very nice. The plot is not what you'd expect after runaway 2 but i enjoyed it nonetheless.

While lots of the fans who enjoyed the astounding visuals and the over-the-top silliness in the first two games will be hugely disappointed on how “normal” Runaway 3 is, the game really does everything to get rid of all the bad things that plagued The Dream of the Turtle and give us an enjoyable and good-paced crime/thriller story in the form of a much more traditional point-and-click adventure game, which also includes the best characterisation of the two main protagonist, as well as huge improvements in gameplay and puzzles.

Long version:
Runaway: A Twist of Fate is the third and (so far) final instalment of the series. One of the most obvious features of the game is that lots, if not all aspects of it were changed quite dramatically: the bad things improved and the good things became worse.
But the good news is that this means the developers turned the god-awful Runaway 2 into a really enjoyable game.

Yes, the background graphics are duller, somewhat more boring. The lush and colourful backdrops are a thing of the past, most of the game takes place in very realistic places.
Same goes for soundtrack. While the first two games had very catchy (albeit dated) main themes, A Twist of Fate uses more traditional songs.

And on the other hand…
You can forget the aliens. You can forget the super-secret government agency with its badly designed Bond-villain rejects. You can forget the ugly faces which would have been thrown out from a bad Nickelodeon cartoon. You can forget the painfully bad voice acting. You can forget the needlessly overcomplicated and outlandishly illogical puzzles. You can forget the plot twist and event turns that come out of nowhere and lead nowhere. And most importantly: you can forget Joshua, who you can see for a few seconds only if you ever use the built-in hint system. That, s right: the most annoying piece of the Runaway franchise isn’t even mentioned in this game’s story.
You can also forget the frustrating pixel-hunting: all hotspots can be highlighted now, so instead of combing through every microdot of every screen, you can focus on solving the puzzles and advancing in the story.
The only thing that barely changed is that large portion of the dialogues are still forced plot-dumps, but the quality of the writing improved so much it may take three or more chapters until you really start noticing it.

And have I mentioned that the new plot offers a way to completely retcon the aliens and all the nonsense that we saw in the last game and act like if it was a simple delusion? It even lets us think that the more cartoonish elements in the first game (like conversing with the dead) were only the result of a wild imagination trying to spice up a simple mafia story.
Because the new story yet again bases itself in reality. In a Hollywood-ish reality, but still reality: you are on the run from a bunch of assassins who plot to kill you all the while they are trying to make lots of money. No bowling ball teleporters, no telepathic aliens, just a very sound thriller story.
With a good load of campy and cheesy humour that is put only where it should be, not forcing itself into situations that are intense or dramatic. No over-the top Monkey Island imitations, just a little spoof here and there.

Still, the game is far from perfect of course, hence the “score”. For one thing, it is considerably shorter than the first or second one. The plot is still shoddy sometimes, the puzzles are a little bit forced (for example you just happen to find a rare statue ten meters away when you are asked to find one) and the voice acting still falls flat for the new main actor, but overall the game is a major improvement and a really exciting and worthy conclusion of the Runaway trilogy

Too bad you have to suffer through the second instalment to fully understand the story.

Good Point and Click, you should play the previous games before this one or you'll miss most of the story and references.
