  1. At the end of my adventure, I found The Immortals of Terra to be a highly enjoyably title. While I may not have had a real connection to the main character, I came off with a better understanding of why the Perryverse has lasted this long.
  2. It's one of the richest, most cohesive entries in the point-and-click genre I've seen for a long time, and I'm a little sad that it didn't come out fifteen years ago. Just think of all the sequels we could've had by now.
  3. It's an auspicious debut that should appeal to sci-fi adventure fans, even if you’re not familiar with the American astronaut and his “Perryverse”.
  4. A pleasant surprise. The gameplay could use a little spice (some form of combat or other elements would liven things up nicely), but it's an impressive game - both visually and in terms of the expansive sci-fi universe laid out before you.
  5. As adventure games go, it is almost a sci-fi opus and it is intriguing to think that only a miniscule portion of the Perryverse has been plumbed.
  6. A soupy ending cinematic can’t drag down this intimately-crafted homage to German sci-fi staple (but American unknown), Perry Rhodan.
  7. It has all of the prerequisites for an amazing game: good graphics, strong fiction to draw upon, and an interesting plot. Unfortunately it stumbles in its execution of gameplay, and not because it tries to hard to do something new.

    With the set pieces all working this well, it's a shame Immortals features such a forgettable plot with so few appealing characters. [Nov 2008, p.73]

    An above-average sci-fi adventure, but if you're fond of rollercoasters, join a different queue. [Aug 2008, p.71]
  10. This is a typical game of point and click, detailing the world of Rhodan and the angel-like Illochim. Some issues with graphics and dialogue mar what is otherwise quite a decent adventure. If you're not a fan of Perry Rhodan chance is that you won't find this game all that intriguing.
  11. Only the most die-hard fans of the Perry Rhodan series will truly love this game. Others looking for a well-thought out and engaging adventure may want to look elsewhere.

    This adventure is only recommended for hardcore fans of the genre who don't mind zany logistical puzzles; otherwise, you should beam yourself the hell out of there.
  13. Immortals is not a game that I would choose to play in order to relax or pass the time in the airport.
  14. Even an innovative sci-fi setting can't save the illogical and boring Immortals of Terra.

    Stuffy science fiction nonsense without a scrap of humour. [Sept 2008, p.91]
  16. Like all games based on successful licenses from the written world, it’s a shame to see Immortals of Terra struggle so much in terms of overall direction. I’m sure in the vast Perry Rhodan landscape there’s more than enough material to make several blockbuster titles, yet this game fails to even make it out of the starting block.

    Well, comparing this one with other adventures, i can only say it is pity it was not full 3d Game - it look like some professional Artbook. I Well, comparing this one with other adventures, i can only say it is pity it was not full 3d Game - it look like some professional Artbook. I would like to see it as realtime graphics, this would be one of the best styled sf games. ps. the cinematics are awsome. An advice to developers: please make the next game as action game with better story and gameplay than this adventure ;) ! Full Review »

One of the few games where I had to use TWO walkthroughs to finish the game. This is a long game, and after awhile ... you just resort constantly to the walkthroughs ... knowing that some unrelated object or trivial encounter that couldn't be anticipated is stopping you from progressing. It's a shame, because a lot of effort was put into making this. Some uniquely creative thinking went into features such as a preview pic of the next room -- off screen. And there's no scrolling inventory! Unfortunately there was no basic check of: Does the plot hang together? Hotspots are very easy to locate, yet clicking that hotspot can be trying, and what to do can be completely obscure: it's schitzophrenic! Multiple walkthoughs are necessary, because different versions of the game were released, E.g., one where approaching a wall lights up the initial button to press, while the other does not! Well, that sort of thing leaves the player quite confused whether the game is suggesting they've missed something. Only if you like combing two walkthroughs for missed details are you likely to find this amusing. Toward the end, you just wish it was over. Full Review »
