Ratings and Reviews
Worth it, but...
This game is very good, and can make you feel genuinely stressed about the time limit. The game works by making you take “routes” around the world, but sometimes your path forces you to repeat events. For example, when crossing the Pacific, one of the few possible ways across is to take the ship; “Waterlilly”. I won`t spoil the event that happens with it, as it is very good, but it looses its suspence when you have to do the event three times over three playthroughs. The same problem arises on the “Dark Queen”, another ship that sails down the Mississippi River, a place where I almost always find myself gong to. Again, after multiple playthroughs, I know what to do, and nothing becomes a surprise.
Overall, this game is still quite good. Exept for a few chokepoints at the Pacific and Atlantic areas, it provides enough variation to keep things interesting.
I’ve literally bought this game for every platform/device I own. The way I see it, this game is so engrossing, beautifully design, and wonderfully written — Inkle deserves the fullest extent of my support.
I could see why this game wouldn’t be deemed as appropriate for all ages given some of the language and situations the character may encounter, however I’d play this with with younger kids so long as it’s under supervision. What an amazing way to explore the world at your fingertips than an interactive 3D world featuring such a detailed, historical-fiction environment! It’s a great way to get kids interested in history, but I’d say it’s an even better way to captivate the minds and imaginations of gamers of all ages.
Great little game to play through in an afternoon. I’ve gone through several times now. The story has enough variety through different routes that it’s great for the replay value. Reminds me a steampunk version of the old Oregon Trail games.
