As I’m sure you can probably tell at this point, I really had a blast with this game and enjoyed 99% of it. Private Moons has done an outstanding job with this game. I fully expected to find a light indie game, but was pleasantly surprised to find a major title with high production values. The ending credits showed images of the cast and crew at work on this game. There were so many people involved in bringing this game to life. While I didn’t expect to play another game that would blow me away like The Lost Crown did for at least a couple of years, Private Moons came out of nowhere to deliver a near masterpiece. Despite the very few rough spots, I have to give this game a solid A. So what are you waiting for? Go out and get this game!
All in all, I enjoyed Yoomurjak's Ring because there is an engaging story with some enjoyable characters, and it's well told in a technically solid package. The acting, music, graphics and film direction (if that's the right term in this context) are all professional and well-polished. There are over 90 minutes of video footage in this game, and whilst that might not sound like much if played straight through, in the context of the game as a whole, there is little repetition (with the exception of the arrival scenes at various map locations). The whole game took me many hours to complete.
Ich freue mich, daß mit Yoomurjak's Ring endlich wieder ein Abenteuerspiel von guter Qualität verfügbar ist, das reale Schauspieler in Filmszenen einsetzt. Ein solches Adventure außerhalb seiner Heimat nur als riesigen Download ohne Handbuch und grafisches Drumherum anzubieten, kann nur eine Notlösung sein. Ich stelle mir vor, daß eine sorgsame deutsche Lokalisation auf DVD, ein schönes Handbuch sowie ein beigefügter Stadtplan von Eger inklusive Reiseführer seinem touristischen Werbezweck wesentlich dienlicher wäre als eine englisch-internationale Fassung, die maximal Breitband-Internet-Freunde ihre Zurückhaltung überwinden läßt. Denn das ist nicht gerade die primäre Zielgruppe, die nach Eger gelockt werden soll. Warten wir's also ab, ob im Sinne potentieller Ungarn-Touristen und Adventurefans noch irgendwas in Bewegung kommen wird.
Along with the interesting storyline, the challenging puzzles will help keep you busy for a lengthy 30-plus hours of game time. There are some people that simply won’t like a subtitled game under any circumstances, but for those with any tolerance of foreign-language experiences, the high-quality acting and fluid film segments give this game a good pace and a natural feel. A few things do get lost in translation, but by and large it is fairly easy to follow along and figure out what you need to do. There are some fairly difficult sections that could have benefited from more clues or guidance, but the in-depth character interaction and cultural richness of the locale make exploring Eger a rewarding experience overall. So if you don’t mind reading (and can handle a sizable download), experienced adventurers will find Yoomurjak’s Ring a solid game that nicely hearkens back to the FMV days of old.
