    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 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. Expand

  1. A difficult game, like a classic can be a "difficult book". Its lack of polish and some appalling design choices definitely reduce the enjoyment. Its decision to keep the best of both plot and gameplay for the latter stages demands that the player have some faith in the developers to keep going on.
  2. While not the best of the best, it still ranks above average in terms of interest and playability.
  3. Paradise looks great, but the dull story and uneven challenge make it a completely unenjoyable game.
