Fantastic adventure game!
I’ve always had a soft spot for adventure games ever since I spent sleepless nights trying to beat Monkey Island with my brother when we were kids. It’s unfortunate that as technology advanced, adventure games became less popular and overshadowed by RTS, FPS and MMORPG. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy almost all genres of video games. Broken Age brought back the magic of adventure games with modern graphics, smooth gameplay and wonderful humor. After finishing act 1 I couldn’t wait to play act 2. Fortunately I discovered Broken Age relatively late so I didn’t have to wait long for act 2 to be released. I was sad that there would be no more though as I thought maybe there would be at least an act 3. I highly recommend Broken Age if you like adventure games. But if you’re looking for something “fast paced” like “Damager99”, this is not for you.
An amazingly well done intuitive point and click adventure!
Loved this game! Very intuitive, creative, lovely design, and great storyline. I love that there are two players that you have to help in the big scheme of the story, but that you can switch back and forth. it makes for a very exciting experience!
Slow, and lots of clicking to talk to other characters
This is a very slow paced game, with a linear story line that can only be followed by speaking unendingly to everyone you come across. Gets boring pretty quickly...
Can’t wait for Act 2. Definitely not a kids game, super fun!
Act 2 is on it’s way
So, if you’re thinking about buying this game you might want to wait another month. The expected release date of Act II is April 28, 2015 for PC and Sony Playstation 4. When the second act comes out, the game will be treated as a whole, so it won’t just end at Act I. Overall, the storyline is intriguing and you kind of feel the determination of Vella and the bored mundane life Shay leads. The ending will surprise you, so if you start off the game and think it’s a bit childish, I would encourage you to continue. The first Act is short, which is why I gave the game such an average rating, but a few of the puzzles do stump you. However, I’m excited for Act II as it is projected to be twice as long as Act I and have harder puzzles. Overall, the game did entertain me for the few hours I could play it, but I would defeintely recommend waiting until the second part drops.
