Those gamers who enjoy a good story, great (and often funny) characters, and a pirate-theme atmosphere, will enjoy RedJack. You'll spend many, many hours fighting various foes, figuring out puzzles and traps, and finding many surprises that aren't predictable. While the game has lower replay value than other games that allow plug-ins or add-ons, RedJack is fun, exciting, and offers a great alternative to (or relief from) 3D first-person shooters.

Een heerlijk, avontuurlijk, fraai en spannend adventure dat piraten neerzet zoals ze waren: grof, bot, lomp en bloeddorstig. Het zwaardvechten vereist wel uitzonderlijk goede reflexen, waardoor de gameplay iets minder wordt. Afgezien van dat onderdeel, een goed spel dat wel een paar zeebenen en een ooglapje waard is.

Bottom Line: This is a mediocre adventure game with compelling characters and graphics and some mildly violent conflicts in the form of arcade minigames.

This enjoyable pirate adventure demands that you, in the guise of Nick Dove, solve puzzles, gather goodies, and cross swords with your enemies. The game features a good story line, slightly rough language, and arcadelike swordplay that's a bit too hard to master.

Aside from being able to die in many terrible ways (assassins, sharks, guards, pirates or poison darts to name just a few of a hundred different ways), this is an extremely interesting game that makes you feel as if you're on a true pirate adventure. The characters are unique and interesting and the environmental flavor of seagoing pirates is in every part of the game from speech to the characters' appearances. You'll enjoy learning the ropes to become a pirate while seeking the information you need to win. In fact, the only thing the game needs is a sequel!

Whether you are an action or adventure fan, this game is definitely worth checking out. I started playing it not expecting much, and was totally blown away, this game far surpassed everything I thought that it would, I was quickly wrapped up in the story and the action, and in awe of the graphics.

"Redjack" was developed by CyberFlix, the same company that produced "Titanic: Adventure Out of Time." As good as that game was, "Redjack" is that much better. A slick combination of action and adventure--possibly the first time this has ever been pulled off with real success--the game pulls you into the story from the opening sequence and doesn't let go until the the credits have stopped rolling.

Kort gezegd: gezonde kost voor de minder ervaren gamer die van een adventure-spel met toegevoegde actie houdt. Voor al de anderen: een matig tussendoortje!

There's plenty to keep you occupied - the game spans three CDs - although purists will be upset to learn that death is a fairly common occurrence in the game, necessitating regular saves - which isn't something that really has any place in an adventure game. But if you can put up with that, it's easy to kill a few hours, and if you really can't be arsed to leave the house, and you're not in the mood for hectic action, Red Jack could provide a viable alternative.

Une très bonne idée de jeu, des graphismes impeccables, une difficulté bien dosée quoique peu élevée. C'est donc un bon jeu que vous ne regretterez sûrement pas d'avoir acheté. REDJACK a été développé par les créateurs du jeu TITANIC, ce n'est donc pas un hasard !

Although Redjack is a very linear game by design, its most redeeming quality is its rich and interesting story line, complimented by its fabulous character interaction. It is similar in gameplay to the X-Files Game, but with a better pace and more things to do, thus keeping your interest longer. If you like a fantasy adventure, good story telling, and swarthy pirates, this game is for you. If you disagree with me, I'll tie ye to the yardarm and give ye ten lashes with the cat o' nine tails.

Mir macht RedJack nichtsdestotrotz deutlich mehr Spaß als das tranige Rent-A-Hero, bei dem die Geschichte sich zäh wie ein Stück Kautabak entwickelt. Besonders schick: der Showdown auf der Schatzinsel, bei dem Nick noch einmal alle Freunde wiedertrifft. Auch wenn die Grafik schöner sein könnte und das Spiel an einem Wochenende durchgespielt ist - ein leichtverdaulicher Action-Streifen mit Bruce Willis zieht schließlich auch mehr Zuschauer an als eine französische Literaturverfilmung, über deren tieferen Sinn man noch Tage später grübelt.

Eins steht mal fest: Dieses Spiel hat allein mehr Atmosphäre als manch andere Titel im Dutzend! Dazu trägt neben der abenteuerlichen Stoff vor allem die begnadete Sprachausgabe bei — nach menschlichem Ermessen kann die angekündigte deutsche Version in diesem Punkt bloß schwächer werden! Wenn der Titel nur nicht auf der anderen Seite so viele Entgleisungen zu verkraften hätte: Über die oft eigenwillige Farbgebung mag man ja noch streiten können, über die armseligen Animationen nicht. Und bei Items, die unverrückbar in der Luft hängenbleiben. wenn man sie in den Screen stellt (sogar wenn sich die Umgebung quasi „unter“ ihnen bewegt), fallen die Augen dann vollends in Ohnmacht. Schließlich darf auch der Sinn der zwar abwechslungsreichen, aber meist eher stümperhaften Actionsequenzen bezweifelt werden, ganz zu schweigen von fummelig zu bedienenden Puzzles wie dem Edelsteinrätsel auf der Tropeninsel. Und doch, selten hat mich ein Spiel so, nun, sagen wir „bezaubert“ wie „Redjack“...

Das Duell gegen Monkey Island 3 verliert Red Jack um eine Enterhakenlänge, doch muß man es dem kleinen Team von Cyberflix hoch anrechnen, daß sie sich überhaupt zum Kampf gestellt haben. Die Rätsel sind recht originell, die Charaktere haben Humor, und die Handlung ist problemlos nachvollziehbar. Ein kleines Manko sind die Kampfszenen, die grafisch weniger zu bieten haben als die übrige Handlung und teilweise recht schwierig geraten sind. Den Spielspaß trübt dies aber nur wenig, und wer nicht auf die Rückkehr von Guybrush Threepwood warten will, der kann sich mit diesem Korsarenstreich in originellem 3D-Gewand die Wartezeit verkürzen.

This is an extremely tough call, since I love the game except for one feature — the swordplay — which is so tough most players with fast computers will not make it through to the other parts of the game. There are graphics, sound, and gameplay breakthroughs galore here, but they cannot overcome what I can only call either a design oversight or a beta-testing omission in bringing the game to the market. Let me just conclude with this final thought — even with its deficiency, this is still my favorite pirate computer game; and if a patch were released completely resolving the swordplay problem, I would recommend it so heartily that even those of you who have never even come close to fantasizing about life under the Jolly Roger would want to run out and buy it.

In conclusion, this game is more of an interactive movie than a true RPG action/adventure game. The story and the path to be followed are linear, and the right decisions to keep the path unfolding are generally not that hard to make. Whenever there is an issue with solving a puzzle, the right question to someone nearby should do the trick.

Miljön i spelet är helt fantastisk. I den första scenen är det natt. Du ser lyktorna från den lilla staden glimma mellan träden, och du kan se fåglar som kretsar över havet. Personerna du talar med visar med gester och miner vad de menar, något som får dem att verka otroligt levande. Det finns inte mycket att klaga på. Möjligen skulle det vara att styrningen är lite väl känslig.

Red Jack is solid, not brilliant, but adventure game fans will enjoy it for the adventure game experience, the rush of solving a cleverly-devised puzzle, or the satisfaction of finding that one lost item. It is a rich and exciting adventure on the high seas.

RedJack: Revenge of the Brethren is very much a light-hearted action/adventure game. The action sequences are fairly easy to master with a little practice and the adventuring problems, with the exception of one logic puzzle, provide almost no challenge at all. Yet I must admit, as an adventurer who can tolerate a little action, I found it to be quite an entertaining diversion and much better than I anticipated. Needless to say, it perhaps won't appeal to hard-core action fans nor to adventurers who dislike action.

Man føler sig hurtigt hensat til de gamle sørøverfilm, når man har spillet Redjack, da både grafik og lyd er med til at give god atmosfære. Det er let at gå til, og med en nem og intuitiv styring kan alle derfor gå i gang med Redjack.

If you can overlook the stiff memory requirements, RedJack offers a rich variety of hired assassins, skeletons, troops, and Spanish galleons for your battling pleasure, as well as a chain of mysteries to solve and a massive treasure to claim. You might even end up with the girl—if she ever stops pretending to be a man.

For seasoned adventurers, the game is way too short-probably less than 15 hours of gameplay, but the one thing that has to be said for this product is that it is a perfect introduction to the genre for newcomers. Newcomers won't really know how bad the combat is, they will be able to figure out the puzzles, and the rest of the elements will please just about anybody. All pirate fans will want to play this one anyway, and if you're new to gaming, or to adventure games, here's a chance to get your feet wet.

Cyberflix's Redjack: Revenge of the Brethren is the latest game to utilize a pirate storyline, but it is far from the greatest. In the past, Cyberflix has made interesting and original adventure games (Dust, Titanic: Adventure Out of Time) and dreadful action games (Skullcracker, Jump Raven). Redjack makes an attempt to blend these two genres, and it should be no surprise that the final result is a somewhat schizophrenic blend of good adventure and terrible action.

To poorly steal a line from Charles Dickens, "it is the best of games, it is the worst of games." Redjack is a hybrid three-CD action/adventure game with many admirable qualities that would lead me to recommend it without hesitation were it not for an almost equal amount of annoyances. It was fun being a pirate for a while, and the puzzles were never so difficult (except for the lava puzzle) that I could not advance in the game. The cut scenes were so nice that they always left me wanting more. Yet there is an overall average quality about the game that prevents it from standing out from the crowd.

In the end, even though RFDJACK tries to combine action and adventure elements, it fails to satisfy—especially given its banal storyline and occasional absurdities. If you were looking for a real, rousing pirate experience, you won’t find it here.

Redjack: Revenge of the Brethren, while passing itself off as a light-hearted yarn about pirates, sunken treasures, and other adventures on the high sea, is in reality a tale of tragedy in that here we have yet another promising idea for an adventure game which ultimately falls prey to a poor implementation…
