  • Summary: In what becomes anything but a quiet weekend in Capri, this magical island off the coast of Italy serves as backdrop to a captivating mystery. As a tourist visiting the enchanting Isle of Capri for the first time, you are unexpectedly transported into a mysterious scenario, no longer of certain where you are or which way to turn. Regaining your senses, you begin to explore the island, encountering interesting characters and intriguing clues. You wander through magical gardens, seashores, churches, monuments, villas, and old Roman ruins. To unravel this mystery, you must utilize strange inventions by an eccentric island scientist, along with your own deductive reasoning. [Got Game] Expand

  1. Indeed, A Quiet Weekend exhibits not only two of the hallmarks of fine adventure titles—story accompanied by relevant puzzles—but also adds the unusual component of a real place that can even simply be toured, if you wish!
  2. The game itself is a delight. It is comparable to "Myst" in that it uses a sideshow technique to further movement.
  3. Go where you want, explore and reflect. If quiet roaming, looking and pondering is your thing, you will not be disappointed.
  4. The gameplay is not involving, and most players will not finish this game, as there simply isn't any incentive or payoff to do so.
  5. I really wanted to like this game, but its repetitiveness and frustration make it an island to skip. [July 2004, p.69]
  6. While in some respects the game is interesting, it's just not cohesive enough to provide a solid gaming challenge. The puzzles are arbitrary and consist of a lot of virtual walking with little in the way of directions.
  7. Rang[es] from boring to silly to confusing, with only the odd moment of interest to keep you trudging along.
