The Book of Unwritten Tales: The Critter Chronicles reviews and comments

ChonSometimes Headlong hung from the Ceiling? Quely hit by a Schizophrenic Researcher who is a Yeti in his second Personality? out with an Animal Welfare Organization or an Orc? If they answer no to these Questions and would like to experience it, they will reach out to;) Crazy and channeled is this Adventure that deals with the adventure of day Thief Nate and his meeting with the "Cattle" before the first Game of this Series. It explains some Questions that one might have asked yourself in the first Part and also shows where this pink Plush cattle come from, that in its own Language communicates with the Persons and thus almost always remains completely incomprehensible. For me, a good Adventure that has hardly Any Bugs-except for an annoying savegame problem in the 4 Chapter, where when Loading, the Game always ended-and has a decent Length. The Speakers are in the usual good Quality and sometimes well-known Radio play Speakers or Voice Actors. The Graphics are not Ultra, but can still be seen and the Music also fits in the Middle. Conclusion: For 20 Euros after this long Time maybe a little too much, 15 Euros but in any Case these Hours are worth!

I'm actually a bit disappointed with this Point & Click adventure. The Beginning of the Story is really great. Our Hero is haunted by an orc bounty hunter and has to Shake that Off. Without giving too much away, our Airship crashes. Now, of course, we need to repair the Ship. In The process, we meet "The Viewers," stranded Aliens. Yes and it was! Our Hero is still taking a Short Trip to Seefels when his Airship is repaired again. Unfortunately, this City consists only of the House of the Magician. I was so pleased when the Game presented me with a huge Map. In fact, I thought you could explore other Cities as well and, above all, do tricky Tasks. As a result, the Disappointment was even greater when we are naturally catapulted straight back into the barren snow desert by Seefels. The Developers are also trying to be convulsively funny. Bsw. We are in the Cave of a Polar Explorer, who is stuck in a Yeti costume and every time he puts on the Yeti mask becomes the "real" Yeti. In addition, we find in the Cave a Sword handle that is only for "Yeti Knight"!? Is this supposed To be funny or is this already Despair??? All in all, no story depth, no suspense, no Fun. In addition, barren listless Snow Landscape and the Figures as well as our Protagonist look quite plastic! Luckily, there is at least one "heavy" mode for the Groätzle tasks, probably I would have fallen asleep while Playing. If You choose this Game, please get it in advance. 20 EUR normal prices are clearly too expensive for this WITZ!
