Ratings and Reviews
This is a great series. Challenging, smart, thoughtful, creepy, ironic, fun, intriguing-I could go on & on here. Get the entire series - it has a surreal story line yet it makes total sense. It is very immersive-once you start playing you really get sucked into this somewhat bizarre world. There is a stark quality of loneliness to this series yet, it too, works by creating this foreboding atmosphere where pretty much anything can happen. When I see developers like this, I want to shake their hands and say thank you. Games like these acknowledge that some of us have a brain in our head and actually want to use it. Puzzles require very out of the box (or should I say Cube!) thinking. They are definitely not the same old, tired puzzles that other developers hash out, over and over again. The story with it's creepy atmosphere and somewhat lost, lonely characters speak to our fears AND our hearts giving us a very nicely multilayered game series. THANK YOU and keep 'em coming!
Fascinating Plot but...
I loved the first three rooms of this game. They were clever and extremely well-designed and creepy. Rusty Lake has become one of my favorite game series because of their intriguing atmospheric puzzles! This one was no different, but the fourth room was a bit disappointing. Granted, it’s only 1/4th of the game, but I felt too rushed by the timer to take in the atmosphere that Rusty Lake is so good at creating.
I’m not too great at doing things fast either, so I had to watch the walkthrough to make it in time, which felt like a defeat. It would’ve been nice to go into the room and figure out all the puzzles first, then flip a switch to start the timer and finish the puzzles in that time in order to proceed to the cutscene.
I very much hope that they continue making the games awesome and fun without the use of timers. Anyone who likes logic puzzles would love this game!
Chapter 4 Is a Major Letdown
Case 23 is the fifth installment in the Cube Escape series. Seasons, the first installment, should be played first, but so far, the order for the others doesn't seem to matter much.
Seasons transcended the usual you're-stuck-in-a-room-try-to-escape storyline, and although some of the other installments in the series added further hints about what might be going on, none of them have an actual narrative until Case 23. Case 23 has less sense of mystery and a less compelling narrative than the first game, but it held my interest.
Then the fourth chapter of Case 23 began, and suddenly I was forced to collect all the items and solve all the puzzles within a very limited amount of time. Not being on a timer is one of the things I love most about adventure puzzle games, so that felt like a huge slap in the face. I didn't even wait to solve the final chapter before writing this review to express my disappointment. I'm not entirely sure I'll ever finish the game. Maybe I'll just watch the video walkthrough instead.
Granted, Loyalty Games gave themselves a tough act to follow with Seasons, and there are some good puzzles in the later installments, but at the moment, it feels as though the series just jumped a shark. I hope it gets back on track with later installments.
