For those players out there who just couldn't get enough of games such as Dragon's Lair and Space Ace, full-motion video is back in Braindead 13. I've never been a big fan of these types of games, however this title is not only the quickest loading i've ever seen, however the graphics on the 3DO are nearly flawless. Very clear and colorful. Not too much replay value here, though, but the humor throughout the game seems to make it all worth while when you make the wrong decision.

Inherently I dislike these games with a vengeance. From Space Ace to Dragon's Lair, I'd always been more content to watch them than play them. ReadySoft however, has made a game that looks so cool, it's forced me to take a step back and re-evaluate the genre. Refinements in the way the game plays, simplifying it to a degree, makes BD13 surprisingly playable. While I doubt I'll ever embrace the genre whole-heartedly, I do like this game.
With hours of play time (as opposed to the scant few minutes it takes to beat most "point and click" games), Brain Dead 13 is probably the best of all the "point and click" games with enough replay and features to last....a second day, even. Fans or not, it's a great little cartoon romp that should entertain anyone, though a full price purchase is out of the question!

Den Witz von Braindead 13 machen zweifelsohne die Todesarten aus, mit denen Ihr nach einem falschen oder späten Kommando abtretet. Hier haben sich die Entwickler eine Menge einfallen lassen. Allerdings ist das mit den “tausend Toden“ keineswegs übertrieben, und deshalb werdet Ihr auch die zahlreichen “Behandlungsmethoden“ vom fiesen Fritz bald auswendig kennen. Dazu kommt, daß das Schloß stellenweise zweigeteilt ist und Ihr durch identische, jedoch spiegelverkehrte Szenarien hetzt. Dadurch wird der Ablauf öfter unlogisch und Ihr verliert die Orientierung. Bei mir hinterläßt das Spiel durch die recycleten Scenen einen recht sparsamen Eindruck. Dazu kommt die magere Story. Ich hatte schon immer Schwierigkeiten, interaktive Filme als Videospiel anzusehen, aber Braindead 13 ist keineswegs besser als seine Vorgänger, im Gegenteil.
