    Today it is difficult to find a good mix between a shooter and an adventure game. If you like the idea, Deadfall Adventure is a game you should try.

    This entertaining old school shooter with several simple puzzles is pleasantly executed title to fill several autumn evenings. From time to time you'll encounter some technical issues, and you won't find the originality here. On the other hand, the game is fun, and it doesn't fool around trying to be anything else.

    A fun romp in a B-movie sort of way. I like to compare it to a poor-man’s Indiana Jones movie that you might see late at night on cable.

    Deadfall Adventures certainly has some problems but if you’re an Indiana Jones fan you really should be getting it.

    Despite a fair amount of issues (mainly technical), Deadfall Adventures turned out to be very pleasant. The campaign is varied and interesting and I enjoyed these few nights spent with James Lee Quatermain. Deadfall is a pretty good and playable game that would benefit strongly from a little more testing and rethinking of some things.

    Overall Deadfall Adventures is a mixed bag that does some things really well, some things so well, and a lot of things pretty average.

    It's got its fair share of flaws, some of which could be patched-up, but I found the sum of Deadfall Adventures' parts good enough, and more importantly fun enough, to keep playing. Anyone that enjoys FPS games and who aren't too spoiled by AAA quality titles is likely to find at least several fun hours with Deadfall.

    It has quite rough edges, but also some nostalgic charm. If only the developers had a bigger budget to sort out the technical flaws and improve the level design!

    It manages to capture the spirit of the B-movie surprisingly well. [Jan 2014, p.85]

    A mixture of shooter and adventure, that isn't quite able to be something really special and heavily relies on a lot of gameplay- and story-elements we already know.

    Despite the delicious premises and the ambitions of the developers, the title published by Nordic Games has too many ups and downs to reach high quality standards.

    Deadfall Adventures is an appealing approach of merging a first-person-shooter with puzzle-elements plus a well-told B-Movie. Sadly, it tries to run with the hare and hunt with the hound, thus succeeds in neither task.

    Pulp adventure filled to the brim with ‘B’ movie qualities. It’ll enrage you from time to time, but mostly, it’ll provide a standard dosage of fun. [Issue#237]

    Deadfall Adventures rises above its issues and somehow becomes an average bit of adventuring, and while that may not do it any favors during a crazy-busy holiday season, it’s still not a bad way to blow off a couple night’s gaming.

    Deadfall Adventures fails to get a passing grade mainly due to weak writing and very rough and badly made shooter sections. This new effort by polish team The Farm 51 is saved only by some nice puzzles and the curiosity to seek the treasures scattered throughout the levels.

    Deadfall Adventures is a game that doesn’t stand out. It has few redeeming qualities, and if you’re a FPS fanatic, there are much better games out there for you to play.

    One of those heavily scripted games that make you go from point A to point B through corridors built of visible and invisible walls. Even taking a bath in a creek kills you, and there are two weapons available. [13/2013, p.70]

    The locations and themes in Deadfall Adventures are its stars, but neither the combat nor the puzzles really stand out and the pulp tone goes missing whenever most of the cast speak. A forgettable, Boy’s Own jaunt through well-thumbed pages of adventure fiction.

    This game is a cliche in every way possible. The animations are not so great, the story and the cast came directly from a B-movie, and the game lacks originality overall.

    All in all, Deadfall Adventures doesn't have a lot of positives.

    This clumsy, dated misadventure steals from all over and contributes no ideas of its own. Brilliantly bad dialog though. [March 2014, p.58]

    An exhaustingly average game that still wouldn't be worth your time someone gave it to you. [Apr 2014, p.60]

    A tedious tomb raiding adventure starring an Indiana Jones parody.

    Its gameplay is tedious and lacks imagination. Its narrative experience is immature and poorly executed. When it comes to good adventure titles, gamers are spoilt for choice. Deadfall Adventures is just spoilt.

    It's an uninspired retread of good concepts, and an unfortunate visitor into a genre with some genuine giants. It might take you on a long trip across the globe to visit some attractive locations, but by the end the only temples I cared for were throbbing away in my head.

    Deadfall Adventures is an uninterrupted stream of clichés, awful cutscenes, mindless shooting and a decent puzzle here and there. Whoever was hoping for Uncharted on the PC is better off buying a PlayStation with Drake's adventures. It might be a bit more expensive, but much, much better.

    A great-looking game let down by poor storytelling, repetitive gameplay and cheap, frustrating puzzles and traps.

    The challenge and personality of old-school shooter or adventure classics is totally absent. It’s one of the most creatively bankrupt games I’ve played this year. And you should not play it.

    This has all been done before, and it’s been done better.

    Glitches, stereotypical characters, and dull combat betray any chance of Deadfall Adventures providing any real incentive for your troubles. Digging into this game yields not a rough-cut gem, but rather a lump of coal that should have stayed buried.

    Just to warn you people, I have realized that there are groups of people who are in "teams" to bash a certain group, or these who made troll bots to make any games look bad.

    Very good game and really exciting. One of the best adventure game of 2013.

    Good ideas outwardly, but all cribbed from other great games like the Indiana Jones, Uncharted and even Wolfenstein (RTCW). The shooting part is pretty lame, and the riddle part is really uninteresting because it comes with a strong feeling of "déjà vu". overall the game is boring,because while playing you know there won't be anything new or interesting in the next few minutes, and it was really painful to hang on until the end.
    Not worth the bucks and the few hours spent on this.

    Ha! Finnaly Indiana Jones in first person! Everything what you like in Indiana is here, don't look on small issues which may be problematic, and enjoy nice adventure time. Good balance between fight and finding treasures and traps. Full Review »
