Mar 5, 2012If you're partial to a cinematic experience than 'Runaway: A Road Adventure' might just be up your alley. Although on first glances it seems like a standard point and click adventure game, you'll find out that it has a completely different individual element to it that is a rarity in modern day titles. A distinctive charm if you will. The combination of 2D and 3D graphics is neat but alas the characters themselves aren't that interesting. The music is gorgeous but the main story itself is rather weak which is disappointing as it had so much potential.… Full Review »
Jan 14, 2013There are so many things I dislike about this game. Actually, everything about this game falls under the dislike subheading. So here we go, lets list some problems!
-The characters are uninteresting and the relationship between the two main characters is unrealistic. Basically in the beginning of the game your guy runs over a lady who is being hunted by the mafia and you must help her on her journey. What really bothers me is she always pulls the "oh, so you're just going to leave me? Some guy you are" routine and he should yell "LADY, I DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU!!" but he never does. Why? Boobs. She has nice boobs. And sultry voice. Sultry yet annoying. Like a lady obviously trying to use the power of boobs to get what she wants. I hate her for being this type of person and I hate him for being stupid enough to go along with it. -Gameplay... is annoying. Being that this is a point and click adventure you have to pick up lots of things off the ground. However it's extremely hard to distinguish what is an option to picked up and what is merely the background. This makes you have to finely go over every screen with your mouse. I've done this and still got stuck and had to refer to a walk-through. It turns out I missed an item I was supposed to pick up. This happens all the time! The logic to most of the puzzles....is sometimes far-fetched. Something I could get over if everything else didn't suck so much.
-The lip syncing is terrible but that doesn't really bother me so much.
-I've heard people say they liked the soundtrack. I guess. Sure.
-The graphic style is ok.
-All the "ethnic" people are just stereotypes. Which is hilarious. For awhile.… Full Review »
