  • Summary: An epic adventure game where players assume the role of either sea captain Faust or smuggler Jazz and embark on a quest for lost treasure and riches in a beautifully rendered Ancient Eastern environment. Traveling through three picturesque worlds, players communicate with the various 3D inhabitants, thus revealing the game's story, objectives, quests and puzzles. In each of the three worlds, many marvelously rendered scenes give the feeling of playing inside a living painting, creating a rich and impressive world for players to enjoy. [1C] Expand

  1. A solid adventure game... Just spare yourself and turn the volume off when you're playing Faust.
  2. Although I found the game enjoyable and challenging (you'll have a jigsaw puzzle to solve -arghhhhhhh), the game does not present much in the innovation department, and the storyline is a little weak. But, hey, this is the real deal - a good solid adventure yarn, and I recommend it.
  3. Still, if you like sweet, genteel heroes who absolutely cannot die and humorous, third-person adventure games filled with inventory puzzles and devoid of gore, it's certainly worth the price of admission.
  4. Its beautifully rendered backgrounds and intriguing premise aren't enough to cover the fact that the program resembles an early 1990s point-and-click scavenger hunt, released ten years too late.
  5. This traditional adventure game offers a few attractive scenes, but otherwise it's an exercise in tedium that will disappoint even avid adventure gamers.
  6. While it remains an innovative and highly laudable idea which I hope will one day be put to better use, in Jazz and Faust it fails to be more than a misguided gimmick. The ‘two adventures in one’ angle fails because even with this feature, the game is extremely short.
  7. Dull and soulless. An effort in tedium.
