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.
... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (6 Hours ago)
@rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (6 Hours ago)
If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (6 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (9 Hours ago)
And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (9 Hours ago)
I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (9 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (9 Hours ago)
