If Myst and Skyrim were super rigid parentssycomantis1991 | July 4, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
Basically, the environments, both outside and in, are heavily influenced by Skyrim, as is some of the music and story. However, it plays much more similarly to Myst with its walk around and fidn clues gameplay. Neither is done very well and it adds nothing new to either formula. It's a slightly above average experience, and it does look pretty nice.
Just another hidden object puzzlermahon | May 15, 2014 | See all mahon's reviews »
The first games which are brought to my mind by Where Angels Cry are Myst, 7th Guest, 11th Hour... You know, visually appealing, point-and-click games with some puzzles and some hidden object searching. It's definitely not the best game in its genre but not a bad one either. It is obvious that the authors wanted to make it an ambitious project, but somehow it fell short. Maybe it was because of limited budget, maybe lack of skill or only inspiration, but it's just another hidden object puzzler with some additional mini games and plot that connects all the elements. A decent one, but nothing more than average. If you like this genre you may get it, if you are not familiar with it - try one of the more secure choices for your entry into the genre.
