Over dit spel

Straathelderzienden. Hun flitsende neonborden zijn overal en beloven veel liefde, rijkdom en geluk. Ze verdienen een fortuin door te jagen op de lichtgelovigen en ze droog te melken. Dus wanneer deze slachtoffers doodgaan en verwarde geesten achterlaten, kan alleen een echt medium (en haar eigenzinngie spirituele gids) de boel opruimen.
Van beroerde binnenstadse nachtclubs tot penthouseappartementen tot een luxueus jacht op de Hudson-rivier, Rosa en Joey zullen de waarheid uitvinden over de ondergrondse wereld vol met straathelderzienden. Inclusief een paar geheimen die Joey liever verborgen zou willen houden.

“Spiritual services, huh? Why do I always end up with the nuts?”

The Blackwell Deception is the fourth of five parts in the Blackwell series. In comparison to the predecessors the atmosphere and story are presented in a more serious and sinister way. Another strong point is the development of the sophisticated and charming characters.

The ability of combining clues has been reinstated and well implemented in a few conversation puzzles. Another improvement is the introduction of the mobile phone, which allows you to search for clues and information on the run, instead of travelling to the PC in your apartment.

The commentary mode has also been improved by providing icons on the screen you can click upon, resulting in a less intrusive way of telling background information.

Deception is the longest Blackwell game yet and also the most creepy. You start to unravel more of a big picture to events that happen to Joey and Rosa. Voice acting, art, gameplay continue to be excellent. I can't wait for the conclusion!

Another great addition to the Blackwell series, Deception is nice and familair (in terms of narrative style and what you can expect the game to look and feel like). It's good to see some more back story in this one to reignite your intial interest in Joey's character and help round out the characters and make them seem more real. The script in this one is great for interactions between Joey and Rosa (banter, as Dave Gilbert describes in the commentary) and the introduction of a new type of threat (besides a rogue ghost) makes it tantilising to think of what the next game will contain. Great soundtrack and visuals on this one, and I do like that they brought back the 'notebook' clue management system with Rosa's phone. As a side note, it's good that they limited the amount of content in the commentary mode for this one, there was just way too much in the last game when you found the unlock for them. Also nice to see what the voice actors look like but they never do look how you'd imagine compared to how they suit their characters. *****

Amazing graphics, awesome music, the sudden realization that you're in over your head and yet... there's nothing you can do about it... it's all here in this, the fourth installment of the Blackwell series. If you haven't played the other three games before this, I would recommend doing that first as they all tie tobgether and things can get confusing if you don't. But you should definitely play them all if you're a fan of adventure, point-and-click games.

Surprisingly enough, this game is really great. It has a creative story and gameplay, amazing voice acting, and is a pretty good challenge for fans of point and click games.
