The Next BIG Thing reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Very short Review, matching the Game: + well-drawn comic Style + fluid Animations + good Sound, even if the Volume varies a lot (music Puzzles and some Dialogues very quiet, but can also be due to the German Oversect) + good Speakers (German) + Fast Movement by Double click, i.e. no long Go Through screens + last Steps of various Puzzles are automatically terminated (Video Sequence)-Game world and Background of the Scenario is explained only slightly and thus has only a very thin " Atmosphere. "" You could have done a lot more there. -Characters too simplistic and hardly believable. Why the individual Character makes some Decisions is incomprehensible. The Motif of the evil Charm is paper-thin and hardly interesting. -Tasks and Puzzles are too much predetermined in the Course of the Game. -Some Action Points in a Screen are only there when you have a certain Object, although you can see beforehand that there must be something there, but you don't even get a Selection Function with a negative Reaction. Reminiscent of old Silly adventures. -You can hardly "discover" anything because everything is made clear by the Schedule, which is also still being told. -Process and Level dadruch (?) rather boring and not really exciting, no Surprises. Exception to the coma levels of the female Character, these are more interesting and exciting, despite the Narrative Structure. -Game is far too short ... Although also really annoying if it were longer because unexciting. -Puzzles are somewhat lame, rather subpar heavy, low logic demands, no alternative solutions. Verdict: Too short, too little Adventure and Puzzles, not exciting enough, hardly any Atmosphere. Graphics, Sound and Game Mechanics ok. Overall Impression: 4/10 Points (if there were such a thing here)

Great game, with an impressive graphic aspect and good story .... but a big flaw defect, is bent to other languages ​​x or do not include dubbing into Spanish !! Meanwhile, the version of windows, distributed by FX Interactive is doubled, mostly because they do the dubbing ... and this version is from such "Focus Home Interactive". Surely that's why we still do not have the version dubbed in Mac ... to see if those of Pendulo Studio agree with FX and add the language ... PEROOOO ... meanwhile. For all those who have also the version of windows (you have to support the Spanish soft!) ... here is how to INSERT the language in Spanish from the PC version to the MAC, and it works and everything. I have been investigating and I have been able to insert them without any problem. To think that although the version is of MAC or of Windows, the files of the game are basically the same, in different folders. Within Applications, we have our "The next big thing.app" bajadito from here. We are going to modify it ... I made a backup copy, although you can always download it again from the App Store if you load it, (it is a roll that is 5 gigabytes: P) so calm everyone. 1 Second button on the .app - & gt; Show package content ... and show us the game files, the guts ... 2 On the other hand we have access to the installation folder of the game in windows (I have it in my windows partition, in c: \ program files \ hollywood monsters 2) 3 we copy from the folder of the HM2 of windows ... within Resources the files Resource.003, .004 and .IFZ and we copy them inside the .app in Content \ Resources \ es.lproj 4 copy of the folder of the HM2 windows ... within Dataa ... all the files ... to the same folder as before, in es.lproj .... we already have voices in Spanish !!! Notice that we now have the same files as the German (de.lproj) or French (fr.lproj) versions in Spanish (es.lproj). We execute ... the videos come out in English! ... ok ok tranquis ... 5 we copy from the windows HM2 folder ... inside Datav ... all the files ... to Content \ Resources \ datav ... overwriting the files ... Now s, The Next Big Thing completely in Spanish. Remember that if you update, obviously you will lose these changes. Let's see if they put the Spanish directly and we save ourselves doing these nonsense. The last star for when they do it !!
