Still Life Game Review - PC

 

Put it like this: Still Life retains the feel of many classics, but both LucasArts' and Sierra's titles had control systems that allowed the player more freedom. When you couple in the fact that Still Life is as linear as a train-track (for instance,...

Still Life

 

Still Life is one of the rare breed of true “adventure” games that crop up once or twice a year on consoles. It used to be that this was the main form of computer gaming “back in the day” but now with growing technology and the industry evolving, this...

Immersive story that is well written ; Good visuals and dialogue ; Puzzles don't feel arbitrary

Having to contantly go back and forth from one place to another with load screens every time ; Certain puzzles are infinitely harder than the rest of the game ; A cursor style control would have been better than moving the character

A well done adventure that displays much of what the genre is capable of.

Still Life PC Review

 

It takes a special kind of person to be a profiler (one who constructs a personality profile of a serial killer/sociopath that can help the police apprehend these offenders) for the Federal Bureau of Investigations. Well, sorta. You see, the FBI...

To be honest, Still Life is a hard game to review objectively. The story is great, the mystery is intense, and the protagonists are extremely likable. As a result, we found ourselves liking the game a lot in spite of its occasional shortcomings… all...

Still Life

 

Ahhh, the venerable graphic adventure (a.k.a. the "point and click") game. This genre of computer game was very popular in the 1980s thanks to pioneering titles such as Zork. LucasArts was the king of the graphic adventure heyday and created such...

So did I like Still Life? Yes I did. I had an enjoyable experience playing it. Do I look forward to the sequel? Yes I do. I have experienced Victoria's story this far and would like to see how it turns out. I'd also like to see more of Gus's...

Still Life

 

The sequel to Microids' Post Mortem is creepy good adventure-game fun, but silly, pointless, and insanely difficult puzzles break up the mood.

Terrific storyline with solid dialogue and characterizations; excellent cutscenes; beautifully rendered graphics

Puzzles vary between pathetically easy and insanely hard; some French translation issues

Still Life

 

After playing the demo and writing a preview for Microids' investigative thriller, Still Life, I was left panting for more. When I finally received the full length version of the game, I opened it reverently, stared at it a for moment, touched it...

Still Life

 

What makes a game great? It's a simple question, really, but there's no easy answer, which probably explains why there are so few great games. For narrative-driven adventures, though, the criteria certainly include a gripping story with challenges that...

A game rich in detailed characters; gameplay rooted in real life logic, but with a story that twists its way into the classics; cinematics among the best of any game

Gritty language and dialogue lines that strain the credibility of Victoria; the open-ended conclusion may leave some feeling deprived of closure. Primary low is the dissolution of the design team

Still Life tells a story that is a masterful blend of challenge, characters and story. It is a definite game of the year candidate, and will likely earn a spot on many gamers' list of favorites. Highly recommended to fans of content-driven adventures.

Reading, Writing, and Point & Click

Still Life is a great game. If any of you are fans of Post Mortem you should pick up this title as well. If you are a fan of any other point and click adventure you should check it out as well. If you like RPG�s at all then you should also give this...

Still Life

 

Still Life's slavish dedication to convention will scratch the methodical, cerebral itch all diehard adventure game fans have.

Well-crafted atmosphere ; Accessible puzzles

Conventional to a fault ; Dated graphics ; A little on the short side, with little reason to revisit

Still Life

 

Murdered prostitutes in two different time periods, not exactly staple CSI material but if you look under the bonnet, Still Life has a wonderful storyline which oozes atmosphere from every direction.

Great looking adventure ; Logical

Conversation arc may annoy hardcore adventurers

Obviously the plot is integral so we will do our best to refrain from spoilers. You begin the game as the energetic Victoria McPherson, a young wisecracking detective sent into the field to get to the bottom of a recent spate of grisly murders...
