Heard bad things, but was pleasently surprised

I saw all of the bad reviews before I bought this game when it was on sale. But after playing through it, it really isn't horribly bad as the reviews made it out to be. The graphics are on par with other modern games, it ran smoothly on my pc, the story, while very predictable, was decent, sound was well done and the gameplay isn't bad either. I enjoyed playing this game. There is the good...now here is the bad. The cutscene character animations are awkward and unnatural, there are occasional graphical glitches, the levels are very linear, the weapons are over-the-top accurate (can hit a guy very far away while running with an old handgun), and the voice acting is sub-par and repetitive at times. Some of the puzzles are the kind that make no logical sense and nobody will ever be able to figure out unless they refer to the main character's notebook which basically tells you the answer to all the puzzles.
Despite those annoyances, the game overall is a fun time and should definetly be picked up if it is on sale.

FPS + Uncharted = Deadfall Adventures

MarkDeejay | April 16, 2014 | See all MarkDeejay's reviews »

Man, this game is beautiful. Deadfall Adventures has the setting and story of Indiana Jones, the style of Uncharted and the gameplay of... a generic first person shooter. You play this game from a first person perspective which is actually a very nice twist on the genre. You'll be traveling to different parts of the world to find hidden treasures, solve puzzles and chase bad guys. Like I said, the game has the vibe of Indiana Jones. It all looks very colorful and very adventurous. It has awesome, detailed graphics and horrible, horrible voice acting. A damn shame, because the rest of the game is actually worthwhile, but the voice acting is one of the things that drags the game down. The other thing that drags the game down are the firefights. It's inaccurate and doesn't feel realistic. It's important, because near the end you'll be fighting off more and more enemies. The story is fun in that it doesn't take itself all that seriously. It will be fun as long as you keep that in mind. There are also loads of treasures to be found; some can be found in the open, some are hidden and can be found by simply exploring and some can be collected by solving puzzles. These puzzles are usually simple to solve and can be completed in just a few minutes. If some of these puzzles were only a bit harder it would've given you a better feeling of accomplishment. Doesn't take away the fact that it's fun to try and find these treasures. Treasures can also be used to upgrade your character, but I didn't notice much a difference when I first started the game and when I finished the game. He still felt the same to me. Checkpoints are sometimes awkwardly placed so if you die while trying to solve a second or third puzzle you might have to start all over from the beginning. This can be frustrating but usually it's just a couple of minutes. Still... annoying. Deadfall Adventures wants to be a first person Uncharted and in a way The Farm 51 has succeeded in doing this. Next time, keep the graphics, improve the voice acting and shooting aspects, make the puzzles (a bit) harder and you'll probably have a great, fun sequel in your hands.

looks to be decent, but couldn't get it to run smooth :(

ok, so this looks awesome, and would be very cool to be a real indiana jones (in a good game) but i could not for the life of me get this game to run smoothly... it will take a very good comp to really play this game right (even though my specs should cover it on med) i liked the puzzle solving and the gunplay was smooth(ish) but what really did it for me was the story of the game. it was like reading a good book.

however, this should really not be worth 40$... its good, but not 40$ good. it just has too many kinks to really make it in my top 10, and i really wish it could. would have liked it better if it was built on a smoother game engine.

Good game

gforcesa | Jan. 2, 2014 | See all gforcesa's reviews »

Deadfall Adventures is a good game and it looks like Uncharted but in first person which makes it awesome.The shooting mechanic is kind of buggy but you'll get used to it.A couple of hours in the game i couldn't stop playing.It was amazing,the levels were done well and some of the puzzles were kind of tough to solve.You will feel like Indiana Jones at some points if not through the whole game and that feeling is awesome.The only thing i don't like is that the voice acting is kind of sloppy and could have been done better, other than that the game is good and worth the price.

A fun Indiana Jones-style FPS

commanderhavoc | Dec. 6, 2013 | See all commanderhavoc's reviews »

This is without a doubt one of the most fun Indiana Jones-style FPS you can find out there. You step into the boots of James Lee Quatermain, grandson of the famed Allan Quatermain, who is hired by a covert branch of the US goverment to help special agent Jennifer Goodwin, who also happens to be a former colleague of his, prevent the Nazis as well as the USSR from getting their hands on an artifact from the lost city of Atlantis, one that may according to legend hold the power to raise the dead and the idea of any of these countries holding such a great and terrifying power is too horrible to even begin to comprhend. Allan and Jennifer will be travelling from Egypt to the Artic wastelands and to forgotten Mayan ruins deep in the jungles of Guatemala where not only the fascist and communists will be waiting for them, but also supernatural guardians who lay slumbering and perhaps should have stayed that way. When you start a new game, you can select what difficulty you want on the action and puzzles, if you're the type of gamer who isn't terribly good at shooting but are really good at solving puzzles, then you can have the action on easy and puzzles on hard if you want. Also, you will get a flashlight in the game that will allow you to do more damage against the undead foes that await you, since they've spent so much time in the darkness it is only logical that they're very sensitive to the bright light of the flashlight. Oh and one more thing, the game was made by the same developer who made the outstanding Painkiller: Hell and Damnation. Are you ready for some action that reminds you of the Indiana Jones movies? Then you simply must buy this game

A new type of fps

Mikagee | Nov. 19, 2013 | See all Mikagee's reviews »

This game is like a combination of a arcade shooter and indiana jones. The visuals of the environment and the sounds are superb but the game is too linear. It has a nice balance of fighting and treasure and map finding. Some bad things though are some bugs and glitches as well as some of the voice acting. The game also tries to make you think with the puzzles within the game but this game cannot be compared with other adventure type of games like uncharted.

Treasure hunt time to start!

segrand | Nov. 19, 2013 | See all segrand's reviews »

Production developed by Polish studio . It draws some ideas from other games, but you can not have her blame . This is such an interesting proposal that I think that it should be interesting. However, starting from the beginning. If someone liked Metro 2033 , notebook in hand, lighting the dynamite from the lighter it will be delighted tutejszymi solutions. A compass lies in our hands , flashlight or notebook that helps us in solving puzzles. I must admit that it is ingenious , but very enjoyable. Do not have to play in the sub-menu , because what we need is so tasty as shown . Fans of character development will also find something for themselves , as there is here a way of character development . Did you Alan Wake and weakening enemies with a beam of light ? Here too there is a similar solution. All this is spiced with Indiana Jones films , finding treasures and pleasant to the eye graphics engine based on Unreal Engine 3 We are also a multiplayer mode in which you can calmly play any . Is it worth investing in this production ? In my opinion the most . Especially if you've always wanted to be treasure hunters. You have at this point a great opportunity to see in this role. By the way, it is a decent and interesting FPS of all kinds of opponents. From ordinary people through various creatures.
