Game designer Tim Schafer, the creator of early Lucas Arts adventure games such as The Secret of Monkey Island, lauded the game, saying he "liked it a lot"..... ?
In July 2011 it was reported that Neil Burger, director of Limitless would direct a film adaption.
Combining key elements that every gamer holds dear in a game that looks and feels like a blockbuster film.
Some slightly uneven gameplay, a fairly standard adventure game at its core
Attention to detail, mind-blowing visuals, fantastic combat, immense climbing puzzles and a brilliant storyline
Gameplay comes up short, turning key moments in its 8-to-10-hour run time into frustrating, repetitive slogs
The only set back? the game length
It's involving in it's narrative, a triumph of pacing, and simply a pleasure to play
