Ratings and Reviews
Double Fine’s riveting point-and-click adventure thrusts players into a timeless blend of whimsical sci-fi and dark fairy tale. Clever writing and stylish visuals keep its intersecting stories appealing—and at times, wickedly funny—with characters you’ll quickly become attached to (voiced by Elijah Wood, Jack Black, and other popular actors). Initially available with Act 1 only, Broken Age now includes the complete game—a one-of-a-kind odyssey that’s full of memorable moments.
Has pro and cons
The game was amazing and had beautiful graphics and all, but if you aren’t a fan of puzzle game then I don’t suggest you buy this game. You would have to be prepared because each puzzle has it ways to solve them only if you can find the references for them and if not then you would be completely stuck and there is really no point of going online to look for answers because the game want the person to find it on their own. The ending is also not something you expect in a game like this and it also leave a lot of questions unanswered, but leave it up to the player to interpret the ending differently to their own liking. Even though the game has it down there are also up like being able to enjoy the different animation sequences that are in the game and as well how the game put everything together which make it flow so seamlessly there is a lot of go back and front with the two different characters which is an easier way for one to understand the puzzles. Overall I believe the game is amazing, but not amazing enough to exactly give it five star, but it is a challenging game for the people would love a good challenge.
High Detail, Interactive Cartoon
1st, I think I should say that it wasn't really my style of game: an interactive cartoon that was like a very creative movie. But still a cartoon (like for kids). But with that being said, I still enjoyed it and can't really find anything wrong with it.
At first it seems super simple. But once you get to the halfway point it is much harder. But both parts do require a lot of wandering around, and wondering what to do. Which isn't so bad as the scenes and people are interesting. But it does get frustrating, in which I used a walkthrough often. It's fun if you can figure it out, but I only have so much time.
I encountered no glitches surprisingly, as it takes up a lot of space. I would make sure you have an extra gigabyte or two at least after downloading to allow room for loading.
Anyways, I ultimately did enjoy this game and its conclusion. I think it would be an awesome game to play with others on TV, especially as a family. If they make another game like this, maybe make it more for adults and a little less wandering and wondering.
