    It is a great finish to a truly original tale, and a trilogy that anyone not already familiar with the series should absolutely purchase and enjoy.

    All in all, Daedalic have crafted an excellent adventure that does justice to the series, topping it all off in a satisfying manner. It even leaves quite a bit of room for interpretation in the end.

    Goodbye Deponia is a wild rollercoaster ride - a bigger, smarter and funnier adventure than the previous Deponia games. It will earn a place in your heart even after it totally fails to deliver a proper cathartic ending.

    Goodbye Deponia has a bumpy ride towards the ending, but is able to entertain nonetheless. It won't pose the hardest challenge around, but will keep you smiling while going forward and at times it will even make you laugh really hard.

    Goodbye Deponia turned out to be the weakest entry in the series. The story feels a bit messy and the ending isn't really that satisfying. The puzzles are challenging though and it's still one of the most humourus games out there.

    They may have hit minor issues in the beginning, but they should be applauded for tackling these head on for the subsequent releases. With complaints over the length of some chapters, the translation issues and the long wait for this last chapter, the trilogy is definitely greater than the sum of its parts.

    Unfortunately, Goodbye Deponia is a wasted effort by Daedalic because it's marred by a series of bad moral decisions, and the protagonist is the epitome of unlikeable.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Great adventure game series, in terms of artwork, sounds, voice, music. The puzzles are 90% intuitive, but expect to get frustrated enough to the point where you simply have to look online for simple answers, rather than clicking on every item, character, and conversation options with everything.

    The story was enough to captivate me for over 50 hours of great gameplay over the entire trilogy. There's lots of humor, from toilet humor to adult humor, and you'll find yourself LOLing along the way.

    Unfortunately, there's a few roadblocks and puzzles that simply aren't intuitive, which should have been fixed during play-testing, and the ending is completely unrewarding. Literally 15 minutes of serious thought and storyline changes from the devs, and it'd be a 10. That's sad!

    I wrote my own special ending for it, where Rufus gets saved by Goal through a SIMPLE dialogue option during the ending where she finally figures out which one of the three dudes pinned by the fan blades is really him. The other two drop down to Deponia never to be seen again, while Goal and Rufus go to Elysium, along with the few remaining Deponian survivors.

    I've noticed a trend with Daedalic Entertainment and very **** endings. "The Whispered World" forced you to choose between one reality or another, killing off the characters that you worked with for 99% of the game; "A New Beginning" forced you to kill the protagonist via super-heated steam; "Edna and Harvey" forced you to realize that you killed a childhood friend, and left you with the decision to also kill his father or go back to the loony house.

    Seriously, Daedalic, write some better endings. I wanted to give this review a 1/10 just for the ending, but I had to seriously think about the other 99% of the story and gameplay. Consider yourselves lucky, but for the love of everything, write better endings!!

    i didnt like that much idea with death and cloning but somehow that part was very quick.
    somehow i still feel (hope) this is not the end of entire series because final cut-scene isnt saying Rufus is dead, it was Cletus actually. At one point camera is showing very precisle the Elysium so am kinda expecting if there ever gonna be another realease (which i really hope) we can maybie start adventure on Elysium. There is deffinitely more to say in these game.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is a game with so much more crazy ideas on how to solve puzzles than the other two. Almost all the times you have to be selfish and mean to get through the plot. This was actually fun for me to think like that. Also drama and and even jokes in this one is a bit deeper which fist for the final section. However for someone like me who tend to attach strongly to fictional characters, the ending really sucked. It managed to take the fun out of the video game and somehow made me regret the time I invested on the story. Expand

I feel that this title can be skipped but I know that anyone who plays Chaos on Deponia will feel like playing another title. A warning to you - "this 3rd installment will ruin the entire series for you. If you still want to go for it then nothing's going to stop you".

    Things that I liked about the game:
    * Humor, puns, insults, jokes - basically the dialog for the 1st 50% of the game
    * The characters Rufus, Goal, Doc are likable. You can understand what they're doing.

    Things that I didn't like about this game:
    * The humor and dialog basically suck in the 2nd half of the game
    * There is a cloning puzzle which basically ruins the 2nd half of the game
    * The character Toni is annoying as F.
    * The villians don't have any character. They say one thing and do another. It's hard to distinguish them in the game and understand what exactly they are trying to achieve. It spoils the plot major in the second half.
    * The second half of the game has puzzles that are annoying as F. **** cryptic puzzles that you can't guess. You NEED a walkthrough for the second half of this game.
    * The controversial horrible ending - it ruined the memory of the entire series for me

    Goodbye Deponia is well written in that it does make your emotionally involved with the plight of the characters in the story. There are someGoodbye Deponia is well written in that it does make your emotionally involved with the plight of the characters in the story. There are some laughs here and there as well as some comical references pulled from many other games and TV shows and while it seems to be worth playing, I personally thought so too until the dramatic climax. I had flashbacks to the horrible ending of Mass effect trilogy it was the same thing all over again a Non-ending. One that leaves you with a disgust for the entire series after seeing it. It very quickly goes from something you liked to play and were fond of to a bitter memory that you shake your head and try to forget when it pops into your mind. Do your self a favor and don't play any of these three games you will just be disappointed at the end. Any way you look at how this thing ended they are all horrible. I believe the author of the story even deliberately gloated the fact at the end. Basically saying look I made this awesome story watch as I destroy it with a baseball bat.

    There was also several things in the story itself that made me cringe.

    #1 separating two love birds and forcing one of them into indentured servitude.
    #2 convincing kids to touch a pedophiles penis, and also doing it yourself. Then convincing woman to get the pedophiles penis tattooed on there arms.
    #3 killing baby dolphins and turning them into cat food for a puzzle.

    There were others but this is all I can point out without adding spoilers.
    Don't buy the game
