Abandonia Reloaded (May 29, 2011)
The Silver Lining Episode 3 is a wonderful game. The cutscenes delving into Valanice's past are heartbreaking, and add a lot to the game. The wide array of characters are fascinating (Hole In The Wall, and Stick-In-The-Mud & Rotten Tomato are my favourites), and stalls in Market Square are incredibly detailed, making me want to look round the place. The story & dialogue is top-notch, and the rich graphics are stunning. Music is beautiful, and a pleasure to listen to. Voice-casting is also very impressive, with each character sounding just right, with Dryad's silky-smooth voice, and Female Guard Dog's sharp tone being just two examples.
Adventurespiele (Feb 25, 2011)
Das Abenteuer wird gefährlicher, herausfordernder und umfangreicher. Gefährliche Situationen lauern überall und fordern von Graham äußerste Vorsicht. Manchmal kommt es auch darauf an, im richtigen Moment zu reagieren, was einigen Adventurefans vielleicht nicht so recht gefallen wird. Dabei ist jedoch nicht unbedingt Schnelligkeit gefragt, sondern eher der Verstand, denn jede Situation kann durch eine logische Schlussfolgerung gemeistert werden. Der allgegenwärtige Erzähler warnt schließlich oft genug vor Gefahren. Durch zusätzliche schöne Rätsel werden die angespannten Situationen entschärft, denn hier ist der Verstand gefragt und die Gabe, gesammelte Informationen umzusetzen. Neue Schauplätze bringen weitere Abwechslung ins Spiel. Mit "The Silver Lining Episode 3 - My Only Love Sprung from My Only Hate" spitzt sich die Geschichte zu, denn neue Verwicklungen sorgen für neue Sorgen in Grahams Leben.
The Next Level (Feb 23, 2011)
And it is this universe that gives The Silver Lining its power. There is a rich history there, a chain of beloved moments and magical settings, a rich treasure trove to mine. The best moments in this game are probably the ones that reminds us of past exploits (if we were there) or pique our curiosity (if we were not). My Only Love Sprung from My Only Hate excels at giving longtime fans a lot to smile about without actually crossing over into a cheesy regurgitation. From the beginning, this was a project of love and admiration, and the tribute has become stronger and more polished with each go.
Do not pick this game up for gameplay – it is simply not worth it as you are very unlikely to have fun. It is nonsensical, it is not pretty and it is buggy to boot. This is not a game in the entertainment sense, but something more akin to a piece of very niche art. Most will find it unpleasant, but it could also be fascinating to the right audience. Perhaps I would have preferred if it was released as a short film, or a graphic novel, since the authors clearly have more luck with a non-interactive medium. Either way, I am definitely going to watch out for the next chunk. It would be simply irresponsible to miss.
Just Adventure (Mar 11, 2011)
Unfortunately, Episode 3 has left a poor taste in my mouth. The frustration I had in completing the game has depleted my passion for continuing. Perhaps in another month or two, when Episode 4 comes out, I’ll be refreshed and ready to take another chance.
