Good name. How's the game?

Adventure gamers always wait in anticipation of a new star developer to come into the industry—a company that, with just its name, assures at least a certain level of quality in an adventure. It's not a distinction that can be earned right away, and...

A very family-friendly adventure; story becomesreasonably interesting as the game proceeds; extremelycolorful and gorgeous to look at; very good length anddifficulty; great voice acting for supportingcharacters

While cheerful and whimsical, it's not reallythe looney absurdist humor that some might be expecting; 3D camera mechanics are a bit rough; player-charactervoice acting is tragically unconvincing

If you're looking for the next MonkeyIsland this is not it, but Deck13 has createdanother colorful and fun adventure that differentgenerations can all enjoy together.

Let's face reality – the heyday of the adventure game is long gone. Sure the genre has a dedicated following, but the sports games and action titles that are all 3D get the big sales figures these days. Games such as Maniac Mansion, The Dig and King's...

A solid adventure game ; Humor

Humor doesn't always work ; Overly fake British accents

A solid entry for fans, but won't do much of anythin to bring new ones into the fold.

A nice meal for any malnourished adventure gamer.

Jack Keane should last you a good 10-12 hours which is generally the norm for an adventure game. Some of the puzzles will confound you, but overall this game is a lot of fun to play and easily a recommendation for any adventure fan. Hopefully this is...

Most adventure gamers remember the Monkey Island games with nostalgia and affection. Frequently these days a new third-person adventure will come along and we'll cross our fingers and hope that lightning will strike again.

More like having Jerry Lewis cast as Indy Jones

The puzzles you find along the way shouldn't be too painful to sort out. Jack has a tendency to think to himself out loud, so you will not lack for clues about what is needed to solve any particular puzzle. And if you botch a conversation thread...

Traditional point 'n click that smacks of the Monkey Island series

Monkey Island Influence ; Charm and wittiness ; Not too challenging

Not original ; Not challenging enough ; Trial-and-error puzzles

Jack Keane is a very respectable adventure, and there’s definitely plenty of it. We like point-and-click games, and we like Jack Keane, so make of that what you will. But often while playing it, you'll wish there was a game out there with a little more...

The beauty of a game with humorous and involving characters is that no matter where the characters take you, you'll always feel at home. Such is an attribute of Jack Keane, a pure adventure title brought to the table by developer Deck 13 and publisher...

As any worthwhile adventure game should, Jack Keane strives to provide a history for its main hero, and not in the wall-of-text prologue manner that some games employ. Exploring the world that Keane has to offer will provide the player with a deeper...

Jack Keane is the latest point and click adventure from Deck 13, developers of the Ankh adventure games. The game is set in the early stages of colonialism and will have you venturing to various locations. Like Ankh, the game is a point and click...

Whilst point and click adventure games still continue to be released on a fairly regular basis, there are very few that you could describe as humorous. Many adventure gamers look back on the golden age of LucasArts and remember fondly series such as...
