The Boogie Man reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
The Third part of the Strange People's Square from the Japanese game designer Uri collected characters from previous parts (thriller-Scrimer The Crooked Man and fantasy RPG The Sand Man) in an ancient mansion to play with them in the game. Yes, this time we are waiting for a horror-designer with the deadly tests of ALA Pila in the atmosphere of Ten Little Indians, Agatha Christie. Saspens, the Rebeads, the antagonist-all spelled out very well. In This part there were so many characters that Uri decided to voice them so that the sheets of the dialogues were not mixed in porridge. And then came out the first minus (small). The Voice of the English version was engaged in fanbase. On The main characters were found more or less experienced nararators, but the secondary wrote the Devil knows how. With noises, without intoning, aside from the microphone. Everything would be nothing, but the voice of the detective, from which the narrative, became an inexperienced guy, who himself confessed that he had never done anything like that, threw his trial for laughter and did not expect to get a role. Uri just liked his timbre. It would Seem that the author should be more visible. He wanted the voice of a cold, unemotional cop... And it came out 8 hours of bubbja. And the function of switching off votes is not foreseen. Although the same Boognames voiced by a layman, podcasting with the Yutuba, but the role is very good pulls. And the second minus (big)-game mechanics. It is impossible to Open a good ending without a nut. It's not enough to save Everyone. There are several non-obvious events and hidden Rebusov influencing the final, for example, in the secret chambers of the Boognames, hearing his steps, you can not try to chase him (he is sure to run away and it is already a trigger that cancels a good ending), you need to hide behind Rack at the entrance of the room and extinguish the lighter! ) But It is somehow backed up by the plot. But if in one location of the upper room of the closed wing of the mansion you, in the company of David, will begin to examine the corpse-he will leave the room and you can not go there again, because (according to the game mechanics) in the premises with corpses can not enter the civilian, and Temporarily release the partner is impossible. In This room is hidden a puzzle with a trigger for a good ending. If you explore one part of the mansion secret moves of the Boognames before the other closed wing of the mansion, the game at some point will lock. There Will be a bug of the self-arrow, from which not to dodge (if you investigate in order, the self-shot is not immediately triggered, and with a second delay and dodge no problem), because of which it is impossible to pass further on the story. In General, the voice-over is a taste, and the scripted scripts can be very frustrating and make you pass a part of the game anew. To summarize: Uri is a good man, does not push himself into the frame and every time does something completely new. The Third part has got more interesting, more voluminous, more difficult previous. Maybe That's why we missed a few bugs during testing. It's definitely worth Playing.
