The Deed: Dynasty reviews

Translated by

This is an interesting and original game! It offers 3 stories in which your character will have to perform his revenge by making sure that his nemesis dies in one way or another, and trying to get you out of it innocenté. The first phase of each part consists of wandering around the premises, interviewing people, finding the weapon of the (future) crime and making evidence. The second part is to proceed with the Elimination of your target with the two objects that you have gathered. Finally, the third part is the investigation of the Sheriff/policeman. But beware: anything you say-or have already said-can be held against you! It is not just a question of finding the right weapon and the right evidence to accuse someone, but everything will have to be coherent. Mine of nothing, this game is not so easy and it will probably take several tries to achieve your ends. Replayability is interesting since you can always try to kill your victim differently, and accuse someone else (or even make sure that no culprit is found).

For people who have not yet played the deed, start with the deed, it costs less and you will see if the concept pleases you before coming back. Honestly, given its price, it's worth it (a demo at €0.70, it passes)... For the others (the Veterans of the little sister murder), the deed: dynasty, it's three scenarios with the same sauce as the deed: talking with people, picking up two objects, killing the target, talking to an investigator and getting arrested to accuse someone else. The positive point is that the dialogues, the personality of the NPCs, and the ambiance (middle ages, far-West, and Victorian England) are still as good. We are committed to NPCs, and we are surprised to hesitate to bring back suspicions about one, which deserves better than that. In addition, it is a pleasure to find the Bruce family and its heredity charged with premature death... On the other hand, the game is more difficult than his elder: where you could make some mistakes in the deed, here you are almost sure to get caught at the slightest misstep (at the same time you are the No. 1 suspect in each case). It increases the lifespan, but makes the game sometimes frustrating, when you click Next... Yet another criticism: as in the deed, there is no "real" good end. It's a bias, but it's still a little sad. Another negative point, (decidedly) l: apart from the third scenario, we do not find the "Agatha Christie" side of the basic game (isolated British Manor, classy domestic, skeletons in closets). It proves that the work on the atmospheres is well done, but I miss it. In summary, here we are clearly dealing with a the deed X3 which exacerbates the qualities, but also the flaws of its predecessor. It's up to you to see if you liked the first one or not. If so, you will be in known terrain; If not, ditto. Ah and the game is only available in English not subtitled, for the convinced anglophobes.
