    Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space is a good classic adventure with some action sequences. If you love the sci-fi movies and the genre, then try it.

    Albedo is, body and soul, like one of those sci-fi trash-cult movies from the sixties. May be rough around the edges, but filled with love and content.

    While I can’t say that Albedo: Eyes From Outer Space is something I’d recommend to just anyone, it’s a phenomenal entry in the adventure genre that provides plenty of unique content, brain-twisting puzzles, and a fantastic aesthetic and theme all its own.

    Even though it's not perfect, Albedo is an interesting, fresh and original experience. If you're looking for a puzzle-based adventure, this one should be, at least, considered as an option.

    Albedo takes the inheritance of the old sci-fi canons and mixes them with a simple but cunning adventure structure. Unfortunately the game suffers from a lot of little and major flaws that don’t help it to stand out.

    Whatever its original concept was, Albedo fails as both shooter and adventure.

    Picked this game up as part of a bundle somewhere. Played through once. The graphics are pretty average for its time, but they suffice. SomePicked this game up as part of a bundle somewhere. Played through once. The graphics are pretty average for its time, but they suffice. Some of the puzzles in this game can be quite challanging, which can be good or bad depending on your patience levels. Overall, i did enjoy the game but I've certainly played better.
    One thing that really "bugged" me however was a consistent issue that stopped me from using items in some of the puzzles, unless I first quit the game and reverified the local game cache, then restarted the game again
    Overall: 6/10

    A rather bad adventure game with a terrible UI which is slow and cumbersome to use. The mouse wheel is used to scroll horizontally throughA rather bad adventure game with a terrible UI which is slow and cumbersome to use. The mouse wheel is used to scroll horizontally through all the items in your inventory, which you have to do slowly otherwise you can't choose the exact object you want if done too fast.

    The mouse wheel is also used to scroll through actions when you mouse over or use an object, such as pick up, drop, observe, use with, throw and put in inventory. It makes it hard to do anything quickly which becomes a problem when faced with an aggressive monster you can't kill and can only distract for a short time making it frustrating to play as the monster kept killing me as I can't do anything quick enough.

    When I went into the room with flames and back again all of a sudden my fps dropped dramatically so I was moving in slow motion. I had to quit and restart the game for the fps to be ok again.

    The gameplay is rather dull where all you do is just go around finding objects to use on other objects to progress to find more objects and repeat, isn't really my thing. Besides objects on objects there are puzzles which can be quite challenging often taking me a while to figure out.

    A game that would of been at least a bit of fun with a better UI, but with the UI the game has it makes it unenjoyable and a chore to play. The UI makes the game bad.
    Don't reccomend, the game is too frustrating to play, not worth playing.
