    A pretty average game, definitely not for everyone. The dialogue and voice acting are monotonous and easily the weakest part of the game, which is disappointing if you're accustomed to the wry and witty dialogue of adventures like The Longest Journey or games by LucasArts and Sierra. There's also a fair number of puzzles involving locks or rearranging levers, if that's your A pretty average game, definitely not for everyone.

There's also a fair number of puzzles involving locks or rearranging levers, if that's your thing. While it does break the mold in some ways, it still feels more like a mid-90's style adventure that takes itself a little too seriously. Expand

    Facial technology impressive, game solid but weak ending.

    Definitely a good game in its genre (Adventure/Quest). Unfortunately it fell under the radar and did not get enough buzz.
    The game is actually based on a very good book, if i am not mistaken, called "The Schrödinger's Cat". The story in the game is pretty twisted and quite deep - i loved it just for the story alone. The main character is good, and the progression well thought through.

    Unfortunately, it ends with a sequence in mind - which never did come.

    This is my favourite of dozens of adventure games I have played going back to the very first days of Kings Quest. Why? Because every aspect of the game is first rate: the future society depicted is rich and convincing; the visuals are beautiful; the voices are excellent, the characters are lifelike; the speech scenes are long, complex and realistic; and the puzzles are varied, challengingThis is my favourite of dozens of adventure games I have played going back to the very first days of Kings Quest.

    I have to take issue with some negative comments. The reviewer who complains Culpa Innata is only half a game is being unfair. Yes, the sequel is essential and I feel cheated that it is still not available. However, this game gives you a full game's worth of story, character and challenge. As for the comment that the dialogue is monotonous, this must have been written by someone who wants short shallow dialogue. This game has long dialogue which really opens up the characters and makes you feel part of their world, much closer than most games to the feeling you get from reading a good novel. There are some well crafted dialogue puzzles with complex trees which are genuinely difficult to navigate to a winning outcome though you don't lose the game overall if you fail.

  1. This is the saga we’ve been waiting for. Thank you Momentum.
  2. What Culpa Innata lacks in terms of innovative gameplay, it makes up for in depth – that is the key to this game.

    There are some strong elements to Culpa Innata, but overall, the excessive amounts of bad dialogue drowns out nearly all of the stronger puzzles clamoring for attention.
