It is hard for me to objectively analyse this game, as it has always been one of my personal favourites, but trying to do so is just helping me realise really how good it is. Everything in this game works pretty good, and adds up to the immersive and engaging experience the story and the way it is told provides. The amazing soundtrack, the sound effects which really make the world come alive, the beautiful design of the world and characters... it is just so full of personality. Controls are awesome, you are able to shift between 4 states or "moods" [normal for talking and scavenging, sporty for running and jumping, aggressive for fighting and discreet for sneaking] The engaging story is an emotional rollercoaster ride that will keep you at the edge of your seat, plus it is filled with memorable characters, locations, objects and situations. If you are into adventure games, you'll like it. If you put good gameplay, a great epic story and personality before realistic graphics, you'll like it. If you like a good game, you'll like it.
It would be hard to tell how much appealing the game would be for me if it would be released today but I spent many hours playing it in its time. It was a new approach to adventure and puzzle games with tons of charm, personality, clever puzzles and engaging story. If you fancy adventure games and never heard of LBA I would recommend to try it for its historical value if nothing else - but I can easily see how it can be appealing for the fresher gamers as well (just pretend that it's an indie game with retro graphics).
Relentless: Twinsen's Adventure, is a classic adventure game. That's what you will read in any description or review. But that's not true. The only thing you can compare this game to is it's sequel. This masterpiece of gaming is in a league of it's own. Maybe it's the surreal world, or the particualrly funny humor, or the way puzzles can be solved in different ways, one crazyer than the other. But truly, it's because this game has something that few games have: a great, compelling story, interwoven with easy to pick but clean an fun gameplay. It is truly an amazing experience that is burnt in many a gamer's memory. It takes you through a variety of great locations with vast levels of exploration, memorable characters and clever puzzles. And it has aged so well it's remarkable. If you haven't played it yet, or you want to relive it, you now have the opportunity. This is a must have for every adventure games lover, and a great example of what a game can accomplish.
