Resonance reviews and comments

Excellent point & click adventure on a very well treated fantasy theme, and that never darkened through the hard-SF. No big tirades pseudo-scientific indigestible, we pass very fast in the action. The introduction of the 4 playable characters is well treated and their interactions always very credible. Having 3 types of "inventory", each distributed over the 4 characters might seem painful but it is not, the moments when it is necessary to juggle between the characters remain quite rare. The dubbing is of very good quality, and the scenario... The scenario is a bead. Play this game.

With all my love for quests and especially-to quests from Wadjet Eye Games-I must say that this game is terrible. Blackwell Series took its idea and non-standard approach, Primordia was a little masterpiece with a shocked world, even Shivah revealed unusual theme and told a single Zakoknejnoyu story, but it's just a dummy. Maybe There is any of these, but frankly squalid gameplay kills the whole idea. It's a quest, damn it! Yes, it is based on the search for interesting solutions and solving mysteries-but in all this should be at least some sense! Here, any passing, trifling, elementary action turns into a real test, which requires a multi-way confusing solution scheme. It's cool--but only when something important depends on them, not every second-time cardboard character.

Great quest for those who love a good pixel oldschool. XII Games made a really atmospheric game, with four different characters, by fate drawn into one common story. You should make a reservation immediately. Yes, technically, the quest is far from perfect. Yes, the plot is a bit crumpled. Yes, the characters are spelled not as deep as we would like, and often the choice of a certain character does not affect the passage, because the same action is most often possible to perform any of them. And Finally, some riddles seemed to me quite complicated... But! As already partially mentioned above, the quest possesses:-A great atmosphere; -Interesting plot with unexpected twists and a small fraction of nonlinearity in the final; -different characters, where each has its own view of what is happening; -Original inventory system, in which in addition to the typical junk is present two additional divisions for memories and short-term memory (tied to a particular location), which makes a variety of interaction with the environment and game Process. -pronounced general style. And believe me, all these pluses are more than overlapping its shortcomings. Special thanks to all those people who have made the russifier of this wonderful game! I Recommend to buy fans of old school quests. For the rest of you can "not go":) Subjective rating 3.5 points out of 5
For a very long time, I couldn't be able to experience the joy of playing video games in earlier times of my childhood. 
And sometimes playing the same game from your childhood after like ten or more years later, may not felt the same as it did before. However, this game felt just like I was playing a game in those old times.  Hell of a ride!
