  1. Enjoyable, but at times frustrating. I recommend it for those who enjoy adventure games, but caution those who are new to the genre. Be prepared to think.

    Paradise conjures the same kind of enchanting story, satisfying puzzles, magical machinery, and exotic fauna that "Syberia" did, and signs off with and ending that lingers in your mind long after the credits roll. [Aug 2006, p.84]
  3. While not the best of the best, it still ranks above average in terms of interest and playability.

    Even with the patches stil bugs. Bad bugs. A real disappointment if you compare it with the other Sokal games. A real shame because the game Even with the patches stil bugs. Bad bugs. A real disappointment if you compare it with the other Sokal games. A real shame because the game had so much potential. Ending sucks but that is often the case in games. No humor, storyklines not logical, gameplay. A bit of a (real) waste of time, if I wasn't such an adventure fan I would rate it lower. Full Review »

    The pre-release reviews I read gave an undeserved favorable impression of Paradise. I've enjoyed all of Benoit Sokal's previous The pre-release reviews I read gave an undeserved favorable impression of Paradise. I've enjoyed all of Benoit Sokal's previous games, so I'm extremely disappointed and surprised at how poorly done Paradise is. Poor controls (I would have liked to play the leopard, but the cursor jumped so violently I had to skip all three times!), numerous bugs, the predominately olive/tan color scene became painful to look at, and the ending was completely bizarre. There is no humor at all and the constant abuse of nearly every animal you encounter was depressing. I played to the end all the while hoping it would improve, but it only got worse. This game was clearly a rush job and is not worth buying. Full Review »

    Despite an abrupt ending (the only reason this gets a 9 instead of 10), I had the time fo my life playing this game. And please don't be Despite an abrupt ending (the only reason this gets a 9 instead of 10), I had the time fo my life playing this game. And please don't be discouraged by the mention of an abrupt ending, everything else was stellar and there are hints that there may be another installment in the works. I certainly hope so, this is a priceless gem. Full Review »
