Über dieses Spiel

Wir schreiben das Jahr 1973. Der Sound eines einsamen, ätherischen Saxophone rauscht über die Roosevelt Island Promenade, während eine Reihe unvorhersehbarer Unfälle die Baustelle in der Stadtmitte heimsucht. Die Bürger von Manhattan nehmen keine Notiz von diesen Vorfällen, geschweige denn setzen sie in Verbindung.
Das verbitterte Medium Lauren Blackwell und ihr spiritueller Führer Joey Mallone sind die einzigen, denen an diesen Vorfällen etwas seltsam vorkommt, und sie sind die einzigen, die den rätselhaften Killer aufhalten können...

2nd series of my favourite point n click adventure games, it tells the story of Lauren Blackwell the aunt of Rose Blackwell, i think the 2nd series have the best soundtrack ,because of the jazz and ending song, the story is good, but maybe a bit short compared to the other series

Totally worth the price especially with discount. First I didn't expect much from this game, but the story and the music - that what made this game really good and changed my mind about it. Controls are accepteable though it took some time to get used to it.

This is the 2nd chapter in the Blackwell games.

I was highly annoyed by the chain smoking main character and her dirty apartment.
Still, after getting further into the game I was finally able to look past that and get sucked in.
The story was worth it, and it seems every game in the series is important to the main plot in the next, so you can't really skip one.

Point & Click at it's best with a few wonky puzzles (the telephone calls).

The sequel to Blackwell Legacy is actually a prequel, but it contributes to the saga in a meaningful way by providing a bit of the backstory. Aesthetically, the game is even simpler and scaled back than the first entry, but this actually improves the ambiance. The soundtrack is excellent, and the side-characters - the ghosts in particular - are among the best in the series.

Rating: 8/10

Blackwell Unbound is a prequel to The Blackwell Legacy and delivers more of the same high quality graphics, voice acting, and superb slow jazz music. If you enjoyed the first game then you will really enjoy this one to gain some insight in the past. The gameplay and story are very much the same as the first game but has more locations to visit and are all connected to one another very well.

I played this game for a game club my friends have. It's like book of the month then we discuss about it.
I played the previously purchased one, which is The Blackwell Legacy. I did enjoy it.

Though the main character became Lauren Blackwell, who was initially dead in the previous game. It provided some insight of what her history is all about. For the main focus of this review, I will compare the previous game, Blackwell Legacy, with this game.

So far, Legacy was a precursor to what was about to come, it was just a taste. It focused on that one case, but Unbound focused on two, which seems unrelated till we recognise that there are connections aside.

I liked how Unbound fleshed out the character of Lauren Blackwell, which to most of the audiences, thought she was a strange case of dementia. Her dynamics with Joey Mallone was snarky but when fleshed out, it's fantastic. It is interesting on how their relationship works. I liked the banter between them and enjoyed it the most.

At first though, I seem to get lost with the game. I didn't know what to do, but I started to find my feet after humdrums of clicking them. The stories were interesting. I got really sad about the stories, but I was invested enough to finish the game myself.

I enjoy the game and the graphics seems to be better this time around. At least I can read it. I guess if I play the third game, it would get better,

Ein sehr gutes Indie Adventure im Stil der alten Schule. Hab die ganze Reihe (4 Teile) an einem Wochenende durchgespielt und seit langen nicht mehr soviel Spaß mit einem Adventure gehabt. Die Spieldauer aller 4 Episoden lagen bei mir bei ca 13 std. (Was bei mir ca 25% längere Spieldauer als bei einer typischen Telltale Episode ist, wobei man sagen muss, dass das Rätseldesign bei Blackwell wesentlich besser und logischer ist)

Unbound ist Episode 2 von 4

Blackwell Unbound ist der zweite Teil einer 5-teiligen Serie. Allesamt sind die Spiele sehr gute Adventures, die sich grob gesagt mit Geistern und Mordfällen befassen. Die ganze Serie ist außerdem in einem Retro-Look gehalten.

Blackwell Unbound ist der zweite von fünf Teilen der Blackwell Reihe.
Man spielt in diesem Spiel Lauren Blackwell, die Tante von Rosa Blackwell aus Teil eins.
Joey ist bereits an ihrer Seite und die beiden bringen die Geister von Verstorbenen ins Jenseits.

Ein nettes Adventure mit etwas zu kurzer Spieldauer.
Die Rätsel sind ok, nicht wirklich schwer.
Die Grafik ist, naja "oldschool", macht aber nichts.
Die Sprachausgabe und die Untertitel sind nicht auf Deutsch. Für mich kein Problem, für andere vielleicht schon.

Ich kann das Spiel empfehlen.
Die ersten 4 Teile gibt es im Bundle, dieses ist öfter mal im Angebot.

Blackwell Unbound is the second installment of Blackwell series, and it is a prequel to the first game. Here, we take the chance of experiencing the previous generation of the Legacy, with Lauren Blackwell. I have to say that the previous game left me with such great expectations, I rushed to play this one and first, was quite confused not the find Rosa. The city, the time, even Joey's attitude was different. Then I realized that finding Lauren instead, was a welcoming surprise in the end.

In this game we play as Lauren Blackwell, Rosa's witty and daring aunt back in 1970s. She is a chain smoker, a lady with an attitude and she has the guts that Rosa lacked in the previous game. She takes the day as it comes, and doesn't rest until a case is closed. Alongside Joey - the famous legacy himself - they investigate many potential cases and guide restless spirits to their after lives. In this specific period of their partnership however, they shall meet a strange old lady and end up witnessing a darker shade of what being a medium actually means.

This game is a bit grim in tone compared to the Blackwell Legacy. Dialogues carry sharp, two sided meanings, heavy with bittersweet feelings and a burdening suspense. The nature of the cases, and their resulting situation reveals a darker, shadier side to the medium business. Since we already know how Lauren's story will end eventually, seeing her venturing further down into her end is somehow heartbreaking.

Lauren is a strong character, as I briefly described before. She is so driven and so courageous, she ends up being downright suicidal sometimes. Her relationship with Joey is completely different whence compared to Rosa's relationship. We experience the advantage that Lauren and Joey already knew each other for a long time. So there is no awkwardness in their relationship. There is no "Oh no, ghosts are real?" period. I wondered if there would even be a little romance between them! I personally think this was a great opportunity to discover further background and in-depth personality to Joey and Lauren Blackwell.

The gameplay is nearly the same as before, yet the loveliest addition to the game is that Joey has become a playable character now. You are welcome to send him through walls or use his perception to check on the environment to catch a small nuance that may help you to progress in the case. I have to add that the voice acting was remarkably improved compared to the first game also. Alongside the commentary feature which we are already familiar with, you can enjoy some backdrop jokes, concept arts and various unused recordings when you finish the game.

All in all, I liked this one and now I feel more attracted to the Blackwell series altogether, witnessing Lauren and Joey in their time. Whence you look up on a family tree and compare the generations, it is not possible not to connect yourself better with given history. I cannot wait to play the third part and see what Rosa has been up to!
