Instead of picking up with Rosa in present day New York, this "episode" in the Blackwell legacy provides meaning, depth and nostalgia for Rosa's backstory by jumping in a thirty or so odd years prior with Rosa's aunt. The music in this episode really starts picking up (and never leaves you anymore in the series) and the funny, warming and at times also sad moments give meaning to what is otherwise a convoluted and empty action packed games industry. Grab a copy on one of the sales along with the other entries in the series- it's definitely worth it! Full Review »

The story isn't any better and the protagonist is even more annoying than the previous game. Travelling around can be confusing and there just wasn't anything memorable or interesting in the game to begin with. Full Review »

You really do need to play the first game to follow along here, so anyone considering giving it a go, definitely pick up Legacy first.

    Unbound was developed on a smaller budget than Legacy, and some of those lower budget aspects do poke through the edges, mainly in the graphics department character portraits are absent, the character sprites are of uneven quality, and a few backgrounds seem underdetailed. However, this is made up for by stellar writing and voice acting, a superb soundtrack, and a compelling story. The main character, Lauren, is especially well realized, and her witty, darkly humorous interactions with Joey add a great deal of depth to the game. The story is short, but well crafted. Unbound is a melancholic, witty game definitely worth a play for any fans of the Blackwell series. My personal favorite of the bunch.
