Match 3

Deep, Interesting, Involving.

For me this is a true 5 star game and an absolute ?must have?. I read about Amerzone and Benoit Sokal, (the author) when searching for Siberia III, which unfortunately for all adventure gamers, may never materialise. Anyway regarding Amerzone, at this stage I have only played the 1 hour demonstration but knew I would be buying this game from the outset, despite the negative reviews it seemed to be getting. I was almost delirious when I accidentally discovered BFG had acquired/released the game on 16th of Jan. The game play is so direct it?s refreshing, and by direct I do not mean easy, I mean there is no confusion about what you are doing, where you are going or where to go next even though the only help provided is what the different cursor symbols represent. Like all good adventure games the story is deep and engaging, almost hypnotic and makes you want to know more, which is so typical of Sokal games, and that Part 1 may be short does not bother me at all, I will be hanging out for Part II. I am no great adventure gamer, even though I love adventure games. I almost always have to refer frequently to the game walkthrough, however if the remainder of the game is as direct as the first hour, then I may not have to use a walkthrough at all for this game. But be warned! This is an adventure game. If you don?t enjoy finding your own way around and you do not like to read the material provided through-out the game, you may not find this game as engaging as I did.

Fun game!!!

Great graphics and challenging puzzles.

Great Old School Adventure Game
March 17, 2012

This is actually the first adventure game i ever played..and it got me hooked for life..if you enjoy adventure games i do recommend this one..No offense to Big Fish..but you can snag this game as a used disc for next to nothing and not bother with the thing being broken up into parts..However i dont know if those discs will play on win7..i have win7 ..xp and windows 98 so i can play any disc i buy..if you dont have the options..the Big Fish offer here is prolly your best bet ..

I love these

I love these games. Yes, it is broken up in three parts, like the first syberia game. Yes, I'd prefer that it was one. But, I had read all the reviews about how short the first one was and I was prepared to deal with it. The first one is very short. Ok. So, I went on to two and three. I love them. I love the music, the story, the creativity, the graphics. I think they are wonderful, much better than so many of these very two dimensional hidden object, puzzle, adventure games

If you like "Myst" style games, you'll like this one
April 10, 2012

In Amerzone Part 1 the journalist/player arrives at a distant lighthouse to interview a discredited explorer, who hand the player a quest before dying. Explore the lighthouse, learn about Amerzone, and repair a decrepit airplane with surprising abilities. If you like "Myst" style games, you'll probably enjoy this one. Beno?t Sokal's 1999 first-person adventure game Amerzone is presented by BFG in 3 separately downloadable parts. This was a precursor to the "Syberia" series. As expected from a graphic artist, the artwork is breathtaking and a stand-alone reason for experiencing the game, although the graphics are blocky and dark in some scenes. Modern players may not be familiar or comfortable with this type of story-driven immersive interactive novel or movie. It is not a HOG nor does it contain challenging puzzles. It tells a story which the player helps to advance in 3 to 4 hours of gameplay. There is no user manual, no hint system, and no written dialogue. Internal game instructions appear once at appropriate times as hand-drawn information boxes. Documents the user collects during gameplay provide background information, more lovely artwork, and hints to puzzle completion. This is an early point-and-click style of interaction requiring the player to click on a symbol near an interactive object in a static scene.

One of the best adventures

I simply love classic adventures, and this is great.

Revisiting An Old Favourite
January 25, 2012

I last played this game ten years ago. I was very excited when I saw it on BFG, as it gives me the opportunity to revisit. But I am a bit concerned about how many parts there are.

Short (Demo?) Version
January 26, 2012

This is one of those fun games that is, thankfully, free of hidden object headaches. It seems to be a short or demo version, like the Kaptain Brawe part 1. There's more to it in the full game. Hopefully BigFish will get the full one at some point. If not, it'd worth paying for elsewhere. One of the names in the credits is Benoit Sokal, who is also associated with the Syberia games and Sinking Island, which are all great games. Amerzone seems more like the Syberia games. However, this seems to be a venture into the 360-degree swivel style. It's not quite as sea-sick as some other games in that style, though. This is a fun game, with lots of things to do, things to read, gadgets to play and several interesting places to go. Also, you have fairly challenging/logical tasks to complete. The ending video, in particular, is nice. There's a good story developing even in this shorty version.

Too short!
February 4, 2012

I've played this game some years back and was looking forward to replaying it (even if it was only part 1). But you just get into the game, take off and it ends. Why buy part one? It's a waste of money. If your thinking of playing this classic either wait for the rest of it to become available or go somewhere else and get the full version. The game for me will always be a pleasurable experience. I can't recommend just part 1. It's the full game that should be experienced :-)

You should try this game
March 19, 2012

There is a fabulous story, it is really fun to play, an excellent adventure full of lovely ideas. Although each of the 3 parts are short, I'd say they were short but sweet. if you get lost look at a walkthrough to get you going again. The journey is well worth price of 3 parts. I loved the game.
