This is truly a hidden gem among modern point&click adventure, a must for fans of the genre. The first thing that grabbed my attention was the graphics, it's absolutely gorgeous, which is not something i was used to with this genre, since most of the classics were released in the '90s. But luckily it's not just nice to look at, but actually great to play. The puzzles are interesting and although not too hard occasionallyyou'll get stuck for a couple of minutes (or more). The story is basically a mockery of other fantasy films/games/comics and they managed to do it in a really humorous way. If you're looking for a serious adventure this is definitely not for you, but other than that give it a shot, the game is a fun distraction.

This is a fantastic classic adventure number with spectacular presentation and very few flaws. Among these would be a few visual and sound glitches namely desynced audio and animations that don't fit well with the background, and the often mentioned lack of pre-rendered cut-scenes after the beginning. The script is funny throughout, each of the environments are simply marvelous and the characters well-designed with great voice-acting (although they could use better textures and lighting to fit in better). This is a game that you should own and that you should use to try to get new gamers into classic adventure gaming.
Definitely one of the best Adventure games in the last years.fable2 | Jan. 2, 2013 | See all fable2's reviews »
The Book Of Unwritten Tales is an amazing game.
The story is very well done and keeps you going and interested all the time till the end although the end let you with a bitter taste, I think is the only "bad" thing in the game.
Voice acting is just fantastic, you meet a lot of characters through out the game and every one of them is perform better than the other, the dialogs are even better, funny but not too much and there are lot of references to games, movies etc just great.
The puzzles are well done, just logical puzzles sometimes very easy others not too much but never impossible, finally a game that doesn't use a jigsaw puzzle!!!!!!
The music is great too.
I haven't played and enjoyed a game like this since maybe grim fandango.
And its like 15 to 16 hours long so nothing short here just hours of fun =)

In terms of writing The Book of Unwritten Tales is a breath of fresh air reminiscent of the best productions Lucas, dazzling with jokes and situations very funny. Also notable is the overall longevity of about twenty hours, which varies according to the player's ability to solve puzzles, of course, but that goes beyond many of the recent representatives of the genus. In short, the purists and romantics will be pleased. The only complaint might be with the complete lack of innovation, but at the end of the game structure is solid and works well.

One of the bests point-and-click adventure games of the lasts years. The story is interesting and keeps you wanting more, visually it's gorgeous, with very good voice acting and outstanding music. The humour is great too, reminding me of the good old days of Lucas Arts games. In this case the game makes fun specially of RPG games.
The only downside is that the game is too easy. If you're an experienced player of these kind of games you'll finish it without much effort, and even for a non-experienced player it's quite easy. It has some nice puzzles, though, even if they're not hard.
Overall an excellent game. It'll keep you entertained for hours.
