Published by point and click expert Daedelic but developed by Irresponsible Games, 1954: Alcatraz doesn't completely share the 2D legacy of the German publisher and developer found in series like Deponia or The Whispered World, to name but two. The story is set in the fifties with a jazzy atmosphere that tries to remain faithful to the police detective movies of the time, but it seems to lack a little something to make it really appealing. Joe and Christine, respectively convict in Alcatraz and girlfriend, will have to work together, which means both characters are playable and switchable at any time. The important of choices is said to have an impact on the way the story unfolds and there are multiple endings. That being said, the first German reviews are rather disappointing, so don't expect this new game to be as interesting as Daedelic's other successful titles. Here are a few videos for you to judge.
@KORNdog: Usually with open world games i recommend waiting to get a more polished version but horizon looks extremely polished at launch (15 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: I agree. it's way too difficult now :( (26 minutes ago)
playing sniper elite 4 (which i really shouldn't have bought day 1 given my backlog) mirrors edge catalyst, dark souls 3 and RE7. (1 Hour ago)
and if there is i use the time to work through my backlog of PS4 games. as much as i want horizon i won't be able to pick it up for a few months (1 Hour ago)
@alimokrane: precisely why i haven't touched my xbone since last christmas. it's become kinda unrealistic to own 2 consoles these days. there's never a big enough break in releases (1 Hour ago)
or buy any other game for that matter... (2 Hours ago)
managed to get FF15 for £20 but apart from an initial play of 1 hour, didnt have time to go back.... at this rate, I am not going to get a PS4 any time soon :( (2 Hours ago)
