The adventure itself is fine, it is quite easy and you can spend in less than two hours, which incidentally there is an achievement about this. If you complete it in less than two hours you activate it. It has mystery and has left me with the intrigue of knowing what will happen with the adventure, so I will get with Act II right away. Say that the dialogues have enough spelling mistakes and the sentences are not very well written but still appreciate the effort to have it translated, not like others I will not mention. It also has some slight bugs, like the characters, which are in 3D, make strange movements sometimes and in truth, these characters contrast a lot with the environment. We thank 3D in 2D images but would almost have preferred 3D characters but with the appearance of drawn with the rest, not to contrast as much.
Shadows on the Vatican is pretty traditional in terms of gameplay. You must solve puzzles, collect and use items and talk to people along your way to the truth. This episode is set in Rome and has a story in the vein of Da Vinci Code. It's all about Church and Conspirary. You are James Murphy and you're investigating the disappearance of important documents that belong to the Vatican. The atmosphere of the game is pretty good, thanks to the motion comics cutscenes and the gorgeous backgrounds used during gameplay. Actually, the game feels a lot like a sinister version of Broken Sword and that's great. Your character, as a former priest, is pretty interesting to follow and the game has some neat NPCs. Unfortunatly, this episode is a bit too easy. Hopefully, the next parts will be more challenging.
