Summary

Odd Experience in First Person Adventure Gaming

The Good

Tim Curry provides an amusing Dr. Frankenstein. Beautiful location designs provide constant visual stimulation.

The Bad

While the game really is about discovering who your character is, there are too few clues along the way to make a gamer want to continue playing. As a result, one feels less like they are searching for the answer of their identity, but merely wandering around various locales.

The puzzles in this game are extremely difficult and frustrating.

The Bottom Line

Following on the heals of Myst, Frankenstein used a first person style for this adventure game. With the addition of animation, the backgrounds really came to life.

A game of exploration while under pursuit (by Dr. Frankenstein) always made me think of this game as brethern to King's Quest III.
