Return NULL is a point and click adventure game which is completely hand drawn characters and environments , it's worth noting that you can't own this episode on it's own and you need to have the first episode which represents the base game to be able to play this one , it tells the story of Jack Drebin a security officer who gets involved with a terrorist organization in the first game and thus changes his life forever, gameplay is very simple you get a background of the location your character is currently in and there's a number of clues to examine around you, all gameplay is done by the mouse and there's no need for a keyboard ,you can pick up clues and solve environmental puzzles using logical thinking and advance in your story , but that's not all sometimes you may get in a dangerous situation that will require bruit force and that's where the game would through you in a cover and give you a gun in your hand and you need to kill or wound whomever is hooting at you , it adds a nice touch to the overall relaxing gameplay but it feels somewhat out of place, I can't complain, the dialogue is well written but I wish the script was voiced since you have to read everything this game throws at you which is a downer, graphics are all comic book style completely hand drawn and look fantastic and the soundtrack is relaxing and blood bumping at times of action , if you're an adventure game fan this trilogy is well worth playing.
Episode two of Return NULL gets the story moving, reveals more about the world and characters of the game, and gives you more people to interact with. The art has been improved and does a better job at showing more complete scenes but the character models appearing in the environment are still poor and are still motionless. The soundtrack, while not something that you would listen to by itself, is fitting for the mood of the game. Return NULL still includes the poorly done cover based shooting segments and should only take about 40 minutes to complete. The game adds a very poorly done and sudden romance subplot that doesn't feel like it should be in such a short game with such little characterization. If you enjoyed the first episode then this will be a good purchase as it continues the story and has a lower price.
