This is the third Blackwell game, and the production values improve dramatically from the second game. At this point, the series looks like the very best 90s adventure games, which is a huge leap from how it started. The story is as good as ever, building on everything that came before.
It’s a bit longer than the first two entries, but it’s still relatively short, and the puzzles are a breeze. This is perfectly fine for the type of story it is. This isn’t the kind of game where you want to be banging your head against the wall to figure out what to do next. This is meant to move at a brisk pace, and it feels like it achieves what it sets out to do without fault. Apart from the voice acting, which is a constant problem for Wadjet Eye Games. It doesn’t ruin the game, but it’s bad enough that the actor for an old lady sounded like she belonged in a Monty Python sketch. Enough to make you shake your head in disbelief.
At this point I’m happy to arrive late to the series, being able to plow through them all one after the other. It makes perfect sense why this has a vocal fanbase. It’s great.
