Reviews for Doctor Who: The Adventure Games
The best for Doctor Who series' fans!grhakerck | June 14, 2014 | See all grhakerck's reviews »
The one thing I wanted after watching all episodes of Doctor Who was a game about him. And here it is! It is a brilliant adventure game containing Doctor's most known enemies (except Weeping Angels :'( ). Sadly, graphics look kinda rusty, so don't expect much. The main thing about the game is its story and this is what I love the most. It is nice to have a little bit of knowledge about Doctor Who before playing this game, but you can handle it without knowing anything, too. But why would you do that to yourself?

The Adventure games originally debuted as a series of digital games in the UK from the BBC, which have now been released as a purchasable collection.
The gameplay is comprised of a mixture of stealth segments, exploration-style puzzle solving and various mini-games. There's nothing new or groundbreaking here, but I didn't notice anything problematic or buggy. The sound effects are okay, and the voice-acting is delivered by the same actors who starred the show which is a nice touch. The graphics aren't particularly impressive, which you can probably tell from the screenshots, but I didn't notice any glaringly bad visuals either.
There are five stories to complete, which depending on your skill-level will probably take around 4-5 hours overall. There's no adjustable difficulty level, although there are collectibles scattered throughout the levels which unlock items and lore from the show.
If you're not a fan of the TV series you most likely won't be impressed by these games, but if you're a fan of the show (especially with Matt Smith as the Doctor) and longing to play something based on it, it's worth a look.
