Overall it’s not a bad game… but I certainly wouldn’t be paying full price for it. The basic gameplay sees you moving from one room to another, collecting items where required and otherwise basically working out puzzles. The result is it feels like you are just overcoming obstacles to walking to the next spot… some of the puzzles don’t really seem to fit either… presumably ancient trap builders put puzzles on their doors but they just feel out of place.

Adam’s Venture: Origins has some fantastic puzzles and you will more than likely appreciate the complexities of them, however, at no point does the game really feel like it can stand toe-to-toe with other games it shares a multitude of similarities with. The characters are either frustrating or boring, and the story never really does enough to hold your attention for long. It’s still a fun game to spend some time with, but when games like Uncharted, Broken Sword, and Tomb Raider do the genre a much better justice, Adam’s Venture: Origins just doesn’t do enough to rank among the greats.

If you’ve ever played one of those hybrid hidden object games that actually turns out to be a decent and mildly diverting adventure game, you’ll know what it feels like to play Adam’s Venture Origins. I truly had a consistently good time playing through it. I would have never mistaken it for an actual Broken Sword game, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t fun. To discuss the game’s biggest problem, I have to delve into an area I don’t usually discuss in reviews: Price. The biggest issue I have with the game is its damn price tag. The Vertigo Interactive team seem to be operating under the delusion that they’ve made a real, grown-up game, and they're charging a grown-up price for it: $39.99 on Steam.
