Reviews for Adam's Venture Chronicles

An enjoyable yet easy adventure puzzle game

Adam's Venture Chronicles follows the adventures of Adam Venture and Evelyn Appleby (yes, obviously named after Adam and Eve) across three episodes as they attempt to thwart the plans of the greedy Clairvaux company to steal from and/or destroy locations from Biblical history. Their journey begins at the gates to the Garden of Eden and continues to King Solomon's temple and ancient locations in Jerusalem. As far as adventure games go, this one is kind of bland. You explore some ancient sites, crawl through some tunnels, and perform some minor platforming actions. Instead of trying to be an Uncharted clone, the game clearly focuses on the puzzles. You are constantly confronted with puzzles as the game progresses. Puzzles types primarily include item collection, logic, math, and pattern recognition, though there are also a few others mixed in. I feel many of the puzzles are unique to this game as I have not seen them in other puzzles games. Most of the puzzles are mildly challenging. Unfortunately, several of the puzzles repeat frequently with very minor adjustments to what you need to solve. The game locales focus on Biblical events and locations. These Biblical references tie into some of the puzzles, primarily in Episode 2, a bit in Episode 1, and not at all in Episode 3. One puzzle requires you to order the names of King David's sons in the order they were born, which I imagine most people can't do without the aid of Google or a walkthrough. The rest of the puzzles can be solved with little to no Bible knowledge. Although Biblical references are present, they serve primarily to set the scene and background. The game never tries to force Christianity upon the player. The story is okay, but nothing special. Voice acting is unexpectedly good for a B-class adventure game. Adam's witticisms are very much akin to Guybrush Threepwood's and, although the comedy is a bit hit or miss, they provide quite a bit of comic relief that helps keep the story from becoming too bland. Adam definitely made me chuckle more often than not. Hidden throughout Episodes 1 and 2 are a number of chests that provide codes to redeem at Adams-Venture.com. These chests are far too easy to find, and the Bonus content isn't really worth redeeming. I appreciate the effort from Vertigo Games to include extra content even though the execution is lacking. Mechanically, the game performs very well. With few exceptions limited just to puzzles, the camera cannot be controlled by the player, yet I never found the camera restricting. Movement controls are very basic. Adam can walk or run, crouch and jump. These work as you expect, though the jump mechanic is a little broken. Anytime you try to jump on something you can't--like a wall--that object throws Adam backward. Thankfully the jump mechanic is rarely needed, but it is quite comical to see Adam flying backward through the air. Overall I enjoyed playing the game, even though I'd classify it as a lite adventure. It doesn't offer anything new on the adventure side but it provides some decent puzzles and clever comedy.

Average Adventure Game

The graphics are pretty decent in this run of the mill adventure game, but that's really the best part of it. The characters aren't very well developed and the voice acting, though not terrible, isn't very good either. The puzzles are very easy and simple and require almost no thought. Chronicles combines all 3 games into 1 experience without having to switch games to continue playing. Nothing new was added though. If anything, I felt they removed content. My first playthrough was when the games were released as episodes. Each game took about 2 hours to get through. When I played through Chronicles, I finished in 5 hours, and I felt like I remembered more in the initial releases than what I played through in this re-release. I would only recommend this game on sale if you really love this genre because it doesn't bring anything really new to the table. You explore a lot of brown environments (believe me this game has a lot of brown color palettes) and solve puzzles, eventually taking out the main baddie in an extremely confusing puzzle that I needed a guide for my first time through because I just didn't understand what you were supposed to be doing. There's no glitches or crashes or anything, meaning the game plays perfectly fine. It's just very mediocre and it's been done better in many other games.

Bland

Adam Venture is exactly as an adventure game shouldn't be. Even not considering the bland graphics, the gameplay is really poor and boring. The plot itself is just a mix of things you probably already saw in TONS of point and click games. Really, there's nothing to see here, no elements from this game are actually worth a play.
