Summary

Underrated Adventure Game with some of the best puzzles around

The Good

Normality is a game that takes a simple plot and makes it fun.It may not win any awards,but it's a very creative game that should be played be any adventure fan. The puzzles are excellent,very hard and sometimes very strange,but they're always hinted to.If you pay close attention,you can solve them.But even if you don't,you'll have many hours of fun just searching for just one clue.Another thing I liked was the script,that was very funny.There's some very funny lines in here that are worthy of an adventure game.The voice acting is also decent,and the voice of Kent is perfectly played by Cory Feldman who isn't that good of an actor.

The Bad

The actual music in the game is very cheap sounding and doesn't fit in with the rest of the game.The game's quite short.Actually,very short.If you know what you're doing it takes about thirty minutes to go through the entire game.But,if you don't know what you're doing,you're looking at a good thirty hours.That's how well designed the puzzles are.

The Bottom Line

This is a very good game that never got the attention it deserved.The ads seemed to market it towards the younger crowd,yet I think that this is a game for everyone to play because it's very fun.A perfect game if you want something light and funny to play,and very challenging.
