  1. Unfortunately there is nothing memorable about this game. The characters are one-dimensional and the story runs its course in about five hours - but the game just keeps going and going and going. The title of the game should be changed to Escape From the Center of this Game.
  2. An average adventure game, plagued with some awful bugs.
  3. Ultimately, the game suffers from a simple lack of polish, but in areas that severely detract from the gameplay experience.

    Journey to the Center of The Earth just feels broken. The controls are off, the visuals are bland, and the gameplay is dull. Not to mention, the protagonist doesn't seem to be able to do things that should just be simple. My top example of this is the gloves. Need to fix some wires? Nope, you need the gloves on. Need to chisel out a gem? Nope, need gloves. Not to mention, the game gives back no input on this, so you have no idea what you're doing wrong. I have the disc version, which means it has the seal puzzle. Now, I've tried the correct combination of gems on the board. IT DOESN'T WORK! I even checked 10+ online walkthroughs. The puzzle doesn't work! The story is also uninspired, but the voices... AAAAHH. Full Review »
