The game is bugged. Not only that there are game breaking bugs that never got fixed, on Windows 8 at least there are also severe lags in the cut sequences. Overall it makes the game really not worth getting. I played until chapter 4, but after chapter 3 the cut sequence wasn't only laggy, but simply broken and wouldn't let me get to chapter 4 at all. I used a savestate at the start of chapter 4 just to find out that there is an effect in that chapter that slows the game down to a crawl.

The first three chapters weren't that great, just solid adventure material with a few illogical puzzles and the usual "you can't do this until you did that" logic of the series. Overall that alone would still pass for an acceptable game, but with the bugs it just isn't worth it.

It's probably a better game than the first. Great graphics, fluid and very lively animations, plenty of interesting dialogs, nice and varied locations, interesting characters and story. Everything is great with this game, i liked it very much BUT the ending kinda ruins the game a bit. In other words there's no ending. And there's no continuation of the story in the next game.
Boggles the mind huh?

This sweetly schizoid and rather lengthy adventure is the high point of the Runaway trilogy. The puzzles are difficult enough, the story is all dreamlike insanity, the graphics are colorful and the humor is well done. It is truly unfortunate that the third and final game does not run on in the same vein.

Very enjoyable and more of the first one. This one has a storyline you certainly can't predict and it has that comedy to it too. :) If you enjoyed the first one you should definantly buy this right away, it's fun and awesome!

I love adventure games. I do. And I lkied the original Runaway way back in the days of VGA. But this, despite having gorgeous art, and the point and click modality down to a science, is a "skip it" game. Pendulo has to have some of the worst dialog and plot writers working in games, or their translators should be horsewhipped...it's hard to know who to blame. But either way, the dialog and plot are stereotypically gawd-awful. And the puzzles suck. Suck hard. No happy ending either. Just a "to be continued" at the end of the game. Skip it. Really.
