Shadows on the Vatican
Release Date: 10 Jun, 2014
Tried twice but really struggled - the voice acting was really bad. I've played games with bad VA before but the VA here was bad enough to put me off the game - at the very least the protagonist's VA should have been a bit better to balance out the rest of the cast.
The point and click puzzles aren't too bad, insofar as it's just a matter of figuring out what to click next.
Despite getting it on a sale, still can't recommend it. some of the screenshots look like they are beautifuly drawn but most of the background szenes are simle photographs - ugh! The best story cannot make up for this!. First thing: you need to be italian or, at least, know italian language to appreciate this game!
The game in itself is not so bad: it's a classic point&click adventure and the gameplay is simple like the riddles. The best part is the comic style of the cutscenes: the dialogues and acting voices are not quite good, but the plot is interesting and sufficiently developed, also because is based on the book "In God's Name" of David Yallop.
But, be aware, this is only the first episode and doesn't last very long!
So, it is good enough to play but buy it at low price. Took me about 30 mins just to finish the tutorial, not a huge fan of that. The tutorial wasn't the problem the game was really slow, the character, the dialouge and the box that comes up took too long to come up. I really tried, sorry.. While I have seen the investigative mechanics and puzzels done better, the story still holds up and would make this a worth while buy for people interested in point and click storys.
The last update on act 3 (out of 4) came 2015 and ever since it's silence or an ominous ";)" from a Dev in the forums, so while I am not saying that this game is dead, I will recommend to hold off on the buy until all 4 chapters are available just so you don't waste your money. What's there is fun with 2 likeable main characters, but it's only half the story - not selfcontained.
*EDIT* It seems like I missed a developer announcement via facebook regarding chapter 3. Work seems to continue, link below by Paggio, one of the Devs.
Do not buy until the rest is released. The recommendation would be a firm "Yes" if all chapters were out.. A hidden gem. In a gendre that can often be slow and tiresome this game manages to stand out. Keep up the effort and thanks for the great game.. Writing this review just to point out that the Key Features section of the store page for this game is almost entirely false.
"...a thrilling new point-and-click adventure in 4 acts" False. There is no indication that parts three and four will ever be complete.
"Art direction by Lorenzo Ruggiero" True, but a third tier inker with a bog standard resume seems like stretching the truth a bit too far in order to use the Marvel\/DC credit.
"...with high resolution graphics and Full HD support" False. Low quality models, backgrounds, etc., The HD version will not run on many systems and the developer's (paraphrased) solution is "Oh well, just run standard. The only difference is full HD backgrounds" meaning that "Full HD support" is an outright lie.
"Realistic characters with hours of motion-capture animations" False. Awkward student-level character model design and laughable "motion capture."
"Well integrated puzzles..." False.
"Animated coloured comics..." False. Zooming in and out and panning on a still image is hardly animation.
All told, you'll have a better time reading the wonderfully florid text of the store page. The quality of writing here is far better than the in-game text and dialogues. It was so well written, it convinced me to buy this below average, overly-ambitious game with all the red flags of a terrible adventure experience.. i like religion plot.. music and suspense.. the only bad thing is, that this game is so short.. but bought it on steam sale and it was worth it ! Cheers mates and enjoy playing SotV: Act I ! here you have polish achivment guide -> http:\/\/steamcommunity.com\/sharedfiles\/filedetails\/?id=59528594...
