Reviews for Goodbye Deponia


Some good humor and art but was disappointed overall

Some very funny moments, good acting, and nice art style for the characters, for the world, and for the backgrounds. The focus on Rufus' character reduces the impact of the main cast, even Goal is quickly removed for most of the story, likable characters from past games might be barely seen at all or given only a small number of lines. You learn something about Rufus' past, as well as the past of the games main antagonists, that I thought would end up having a greater payoff. For a short time it looked like it was going to cause Rufus to work more towards redeeming himself, then he ended up being more awful than usual, only to do something at the end that now seemed out of character for him. There are some annoying puzzles where you have to make strange item combinations or where you need to perform certain actions before something will work correctly, this mostly applies to the longest chapter where you are controlling three different versions of Rufus. The game still has no hint system but the areas in each chapter aren't that large so you don't have too big of an area to comb over. There are a few mini-games that, for the most part, are pretty easy and what plays out on the screen can be entertaining but none of them are fun to complete. The mini-games do allow you to skip them if you can't figure them out or if you just want to move on. The game has some terrible achievements that make you repeat the same actions 5-8 times to unlock them. Some really good moments moments but a combination of some annoying puzzles, boring mini-games, disappointment with some of the story and character decisions, and some spots that were just kind of offensive without having any humor or character development to them all lowered my enjoyment of the game.


A good dose of humor..

Goodbye Deponia takes things where Chaos on Deponia had left. Always so nice and always funny, this third installment in the series will make you live a new wacky adventure in a world particularly well and inspired. Deeply rooted in the tradition of old point'n click, Goodbye Deponia could repel the largest public because of the strangeness of some riddles and its very old-school realization. Others will meanwhile delighted to find Rufus and his band of broken arms for a new symbolic gesture. Goodbye and thank you Deponia Daedalic for this whole adventure.


Some Goodbye's can hurt

Daedalic created in Deponia a series that could be both humorous and heartwarming in the same scene. Overall this conclusion does the series justice with puzzles maintaining their nonsensical solutions and the snark is as prevalent as ever. I believe however that the game falls down in the conclusion, I wont go into detail to avoid spoilers but I will say that the ending doesn't quite match the tone of the game and the series in general. To Daedalic's credit however I do see what they were going for. Overall I will give this a 85/100. Falls down towards the end but a solid game throughout.


nice ... but :O

An adorable final episode with a few minor technical issues. The backdrop graphics is excellent, but the graphics of some new characters (e.g., the psychologist) have low quality. The music is great. I spent playing 25 hours, half of it just trying everything on everyone; not for the funny responses, but to get unstuck. Had to check the forums for some clues. The game suffers from the "use the tape on the cat" syndrome: twisted logic actions and denied straight paths. (For example, one task involved creating an imprint, but unless Rufus visited the psychologist before to name a similar imprint, the imprint just dissolved into a blob.) Despite the shortcomings, the series is a definite buy.


And Rufus returns!

Loved the first games, and now, Rufus is back at it! Absolutely love the series and this game didn't fail to make me laugh.. yet again. The point-and-click adventure style is very well done, and the soundtrack is awesome. For all of you Deponia fans out there, do NOT, I repeat, do NOT miss out on this fantastic game!


A nice conclusion for the saga

Deponia was one of the funniest point and click adventure of the last year. Animation of characters is not that great, yes, but the artistic direction, the soundtrack and the plot iself are very good. Puzzle solving isn't a problem, it is very easy and you can show hotspot on the screen. This is the last chapter of the franchise, and I will not spoil anything on it: if you loved other games, just grab this too.
