When Good Games Go Bad

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: SLEEPER HIT :: Read Review »

Back in August, a little game called Radiant One came out. It was a solid adventure game with great visuals and a story that hit me harder than I was expecting. I wasn’t in love with it, but I enjoyed my time with it a great deal. So much so that I gave it a nice four star rating and recommended it to friends who were looking for something new to play.

In the intervening months between Radiant One’s release and now, a lot has changed. For starters, the game has a new chapter, which is odd mostly because--in my playthrough of Radiant One--I was not aware this game was going to have multiple chapters. The game was short, yes, but nothing about it remotely suggested that the game would include a new or continuing storyline beyond what was in the initial package.

Upon hearing new stuff got added to this great game, I got excited and re-downloaded it. I wanted to see what else Radiant One might have up its sleeves. Would it be a continuation of Daniel’s adventures with lucid dreaming? Would it be more like an anthology? I could see things going in one of quite a few different directions, but if any of them were like the game’s base package, I was ready for it.

Stay: Are you there? Is a fascinating premise bogged down with awkward dialogue and obtuse puzzles.

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: SHIFTY STORY
This FMV game certainly has a quirky charm to it, but its narrative unravels to the point that it can’t deliver a satisfying conclusion.
