It is finally here - the new game from the makers of Edna , The Whispered World , Harvey's New Eyes , and DSA: Satinav's chains . The sequel to the best marks showered with prizes and Adventures is here, and this adventure is the same train still lively, whimsical and wacky. With "chaos in Raccoon" the genre of classic point and click adventure is once again brought to life and inspires. With an exciting story, likeable characters, but witty dialogue and a finely tuned combination of good jokes and riddles excited chaos in Raccoon young and old of the same dimensions. Expand

    Chaos on Deponia will guarantee you a few hours of fun far removed from the usual titles. With a few lines of dialogue and a superb humour, it's a gaming experience that we recommend you even if you like more or less the "Point & Click" genre.

    I couldn’t quite gel with much of the puzzle logic, which tends to lean too heavily on trial and error rather than innovation.

    For those with patience and time for plenty of tongue-in-cheek humour, Chaos on Deponia will prove a more than satisfactory point and click adventure. If you want something a little more serious however then it’s fair to say this isn’t the game for you.

    While Chaos on Deponia furthers the oddball adventures of Rufus and has its moments of entertaining humor and challenging puzzles, Rufus himself falls flat in an attempt to portray a plucky hero.

    Point and click adventures are something that definitely tickle my fancy, and when everything fits into place they can provide you with a veryPoint and click adventures are something that definitely tickle my fancy, and when everything fits into place they can provide you with a very enjoyable experience. Thankfully Chaos on Deponia can be added to the list of game’s that provide you with that said experience. The most important thing about a point and click adventure is its story and thankfully this game provides you with a very enjoyable and sometimes wacky tale, that has an abundance of humour thrown in for good measure. The voice actors that contribute to the story did a very good job but I did fail to connect with some characters at times, which was a shame. The crux of this game comes down to its puzzles and I must admit that the puzzles were very fun to complete and I appreciated that there weren’t any hidden difficulty spikes that popped up out of nowhere. I will say though that the mini-games weren’t done as well as the main puzzles and in my opinion they weren’t needed in the game. The controls in the game impressed me a great deal and they do a great job of making them feel fluid and responsive throughout, which in turn made the game feel like it belonged on the console. I was hoping that they would have included a run option but that never materialised so expect to get a bit frustrated from time to time. The presentation side of the game ticked a lot of boxes for me and in my opinion it made the game stand out for all the right reasons. Visually the game has a unique cartoony vibe going for it and the accompanying sound design enhances your immersion greatly, which is great. At the end of the day as far as point and click adventures go Chaos on Deponia is a very good addition to the genre. Yes it gets a few things wrong but you forget about this quite quickly because it offers you a decent story that captures your imagination from the get go. If your a fan of the point and click style then you will have a great time with Chaos on Deponia, and in my opinion this game may bring a few more fans to the table which is always great. Expand
