Kids, casual gamers, and those interested in religion will enjoy Adam's Venture: Chronicles. The rest of us, programmed for debauchery and destruction, should probably stick to the games in our wheelhouse.

Adam's Venture Chronicles is not a bad game, it is just a frustratingly average game. It knows what it wants to do and sticks to its strengths, it is just that those strengths are lacking for depth and may prove boring for gamers looking for a bit more action in their adventures. Still, if you set your expectations accordingly, there is some fun to be had here while it lasts.

As a whole, Adam's Venture Chronicles is a flawed game that appears capable of so much more. I enjoyed the cleverness of the puzzles and the biblical theme capably added richness sans preachiness, but the presentation hampers it considerably. For a console release to the masses, Vertigo should've considered a proper upgrade in this area. For younger, puzzle oriented gamers—especially Christian ones—Adam and Eve can be good tomb digging buddies.

There’s a kind of dumb charm to Adam’s Venture Chronicles that makes it stand out – but this is still a decidedly average affair. For the right people – a religious family looking for something beneficial for their children – this is probably a solid purchase. The average gamer will probably expect a deeper experience, though – or at least a package where the jokes aren’t as old as the Bible itself.

I’m disappointed. Not because the game is bad, which it is, but because there was a real opportunity here to tell an insane story that I should be telling everyone about. What is the fog monster? Where did that dog come from? What does ‘kill two stones with one bird’ mean? Why is there a stealth sequence with no enemies to sneak past? Why can’t I stop playing this game? I don’t think I’ll ever get answers to these questions. Adam’s Venture at the very least isn’t a terrible game and I did get some form of enjoyment out of it. It’s just not something I could ever recommend.

Long ago, in practically another lifetime, I briefly dated an evangelical Christian who fancied herself to be an intellectual. While the relationship was a disaster, one thing she said has stuck with me all these years later: that it’s awfully hard to be a Christian aesthete when the Christian pop culture industry is so committed to churning out so much crap. After playing Adam’s Venture: Chronicles, I’m pretty sure that viewpoint goes double for Christian gamers.
