I definitely think this is one of those titles that will have pretty heavy-duty pendulum swings in the range of opinion from the people who play it. For folks like me who grew up playing older PC adventures and RPGs there’s an unmistakable essence of those games here in both the looks and general feel… and it can be pretty inviting. Whether you’re nostalgic for retro-styled adventure is certainly one area where there’ll be a divide but the bigger area is likely to be the game’s often irreverent, but also sometimes leaping over into crass, sense of humor. It’s definitely a matter of taste, and in my younger years I probably would have been a bit more on board and entertained by it, but maybe I’m just old now and it feels like there are more misses than hits, though I’ll credit the game for continuing to swing away. Outside of those major factors that will either grab you or turn you away there’s the issue with elements like combat that lack real energy or oomph, unfortunately feeling a bit bland and dated. If you check out some video and the game’s sense of humor tickles your funny bone though, it will likely entertain.
