Crazy Machines: Golden Gears reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Don't Buy this nightmare! Long wanted to drive virtual mechanisms in the game on the new engine (old-good first 4 games on the old Long gone). Taking advantage of the sale, still bought this game. But already during the first acquaintance with her, she begins to disappoint. 1. The Settings. There Are three checkboxes: "Music", "Sounds" and an unidentified function, the shutdown of which has not made any noticeable changes. Immediately Remember the Settings window with their necessary minimum in the "Lord of the mechanisms"... The Lack of window mode also does not add convenience. 2. The Equipment. It is, at first glance, a lot, but there is no basic battery (or a more serious power supply). Often There is not enough splitter on 2-3 sockets-for each device it is necessary to collect separate power source. The same scissors and many other devices are not here. Scissors, apparently, replaced by a laser, but for it it is necessary to be wise with the mentioned above power source. For Example, on the basis of candle/kerosene lamp, boiler and generator. When assembling the first installations, there is a noticeable lack of hardware settings. The Maximum that can be done is to turn the device around its axis. No presets (light the lamp, set the desired value and similar) No. Just a turn, that's all. 3. Gameplay. 1) The system of quests-Namykov, fortunately, remained in the game-the goal of the task is shown by the picture (what to get to and under what conditions). The Description of the elements also contains a very brief explanation. For Those who do not understand there is a button ready solution; 2) Illumination of the installation elements. There is a novelty for those who want to get epilepsy or to cause her attack: During the assembly of the installation, the details you set begin to sparkle in the truest sense of the word. After 5 minutes of this flashing there is a desire to quickly turn off the game; 3) System of achievements-here who as-need to perform the task quickly, with a minimum of repetitive details, using "unusual" combinations of them. ALL results can be sent to compare successes with other players; 4) Complexity of tasks. Everything Here remains at a good level. The Fact that instead of pre-prepared parts give access to all available equipment-pleased. That is, it is necessary to think more-that specifically adapt to the solution of the problem. In many ways, this advantage is spoiled by a failed set of equipment, as indicated in paragraph 2. 5) Quality simulation-high enough, but there are special effects in the style of Hollywood movies;-) 4. Universal online. The most part of the start screen is occupied by the buttons-links to the pages of the official site and social. Networks without any signatures, but with badges. Clicking on this button will minimize the game to the taskbar and open a certain page in the browser. In the same time the game can fly out with an error (the Telemetry sending window appears). 5. Localization. The Quality of the text is quite good. Although Some flaws of translation are noticeable. In Terms of voice, only two languages are available. Therefore, if the user is not fluent in English or German-professors can not listen. Although It is nothing more than usual and does not speak as before:-) Total. The Quality of the simulation and complexity of the puzzles remained at the same high level. Solving these puzzles is interesting. But the developers for some reason added to the gameplay a lot of unnecessary and vice versa-removed very important features of hardware configuration. So If you want to solve the puzzles of a crazy Professor, it is better to pass the first 4 games on the old-good 2D-engine;-)
