Red Johnson's Chronicles - 1+2 reviews and comments

Finally a real investigative game where the player is forced to think through the clues collected. Well, we are far from a very complex plot, but I liked the mechanics of this game. The player is often required to make assumptions or conclusions about the case, including through interrogations and a final questionnaire. The game phases are quite varied: there are many puzzles to solve, some easy, some delicate. Red has to analyze fingerprints, objects, compare photos between them, find hidden clues and on rare occasions fight. The story is interesting, the characters singular and very well dubbed (VO only, under titled FR). The character of the Ringo bum is really good! The big negative thing is the controls. A clumsy mix of keyboard (precise, non-configurable keys) and mouse. While the game could have been exploited in full (or almost) to the mouse. It is unmanageable, unergonomic, I would say even completely missed from this point of view.

As for the Puzzles, I've never played a better Game ... And I've played some before. I have to say that a few Puzzles were a bit very difficult (had to get Help from "out"). Nevertheless very imaginative and versatile, the Type of Puzzles. The Story takes a Bit of a back seat to BEI MIR without Any problem. Even the fact that the People interact against a black Background and alone (pictured) does not bother me. The Nature of The communication among themselves is clever and witty and the Puzzles are, as already mentioned, simply phenomenal. The Story is just a Crime Thriller and does NOT need to come to the Forefront of this Game IN THIS FALL. THIS Fact alone speaks for my Game SPAS THE REAL. Otherwise, I am Already "pre-loaded" Storytech and graphically (put a lot of emphasis on SONST). As Info: They are pure Puzzles and NOT Things to look for and put together. The pure Way of thinking ... Compliments to the Creators of the Game. Although I am NOCH not finished WITH the Game, I can easily write my Review. Whoever goes roughly towards my Taste, the SOLL will definitely play this Game ... Wishing a lot of Pleasure!

Oh my God that this game is horrible, not so much by its graphics or its scenario, which are more than drinkable, but not its playability, which completely kills the game! And not just a little. Impossiblity to finish the QTE from the first time for example so the maneuverability is atrocious (so there are successes impossible to have, like "coup de Maitre"). For some puzzles, you succeeded you do not know how so it is "blind" (I talk about that of the camera at the very beginning of the game for example) the most abating in it is that the keyboard/mouse combos, is atrocious, especially the mouse for the QTE... (You are asked to press the left click and drag the mouse forward for example, except that... It only works once in 10.) And the worst part about this is that it's a CONSOLE game has the base put * * n!!!!!! SO WHY NO POSSIBILITY OF THROWING A GAMEPAD PUTAI * TO PLAY THE GAME?!!!! NAN BUT SERIOUSLY! Anyway, all this to say that just for maneuverability; especially if you're not the patient type; go your way, even if the plot looks really cool... Personally, I'll shit to finish the game, but I want. So I can do it! But because of this problem ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥, the number of hours of play will at least be multiplied by two which I think. Haha
