Paris 1925 1.9 5 65 65
So much potential So little realized. I wanted to *love* this game, much as others here have mentioned. Paris, 1925, the art world, a mysterious death-- almost every aspect of, I'm in. (Add a train and I'd be obscenely engaged). Since there is little chance my review is going to influence future players, I'm commenting solely for the game devs. Firstly, I agree with almost everything that other reviewers have said about the bad decisions the devs made. "Hidden objects" does not mean make them so miniscule and dark that you need a magnifying glass to find them, for instance. My main gripe with the game was that the devs did not seem to get themselves out of their own heads and into a gamer's head. *They* knew what they wanted me to notice or do, so therefore I should have noticed it or done it. Except that it doesn't work like that. Examples? (Two of a number of early examples, since I gave up on the game after the hour trial). At the very beginning, you're tasked with putting a puzzle together that is (apparently, though you don't know this at the time) a postcard advertisement for a gallery show - one of the paintings from the show. Once the puzzle is completed, and it's very abstract so not easy to complete, it disappears from the screen. A few minutes later, you are asked a number of questions about this painting. Questions about the real life artistic influences obvious in the painting (obvious to the game devs.) Except you didn't really get the chance to look at the completed painting / postcard, much less recognize that it's depicting a painting on the wall of the show. One busy, abstract painting is going to look like another with the graphic quality of this game. Given the chance, I (with an art and art history background) could have answered the questions just fine. However, I was frustrated. And I don't know how gamers without an art background would have been able to answer them. How many gamers are familiar with Manet's "Olympia" for example? My point is -- what was the purpose of this exercise, in terms of the game? Make me, as the cub reporter, realize I know nothing, and so, therefore.... ?? Same thing could be said about the cub reporter's (gamer's) decisions about what to put into the articles that were supposed to be judged by the editor. With vague guidelines and odd options to choose from, what did the devs expect the gamers to take away from that exercise? Not exactly a puzzle, more a skill test of tabloid journalism, seemed like. But what was the point? Throw these two strangely off-putting exercises at the gamer right off the bat, add to that weirdly obscure "objects" (like bits and pieces of one thing or another) that are eye-straining to even notice, on top of the two-dimensional and clunky graphics, and the good things about the game are lost. Yes, good things. A few of them, I think, if I remember right. One, the lack of hand holding, for the most part. Old school AG style. Two, the puzzles were somewhat challenging (jigsaw, and the file cabinet). Three, the potential for a very interesting storyline. I will assume that was fulfilled based upon a few of the good reviews here - like I said, I gave up on the game because I was not enjoying myself way so much more than I was enjoying myself. Thank goodness for trial versions. (And in case this review is deleted for being too spoiler-y, perhaps BFG might at least forward this to the devs...?) October 22, 2012
High School French, you failed me I wanted to like this game. In it, you are a fledgling reporter who comes across a murder mystery while reporting on an Art Gallery Opening. You play mini-games as you search for clues, gather info, and "write" your story. But the games and puzzles are very poorly designed and implemented, the worst offender being a diary you need to recreate in chronological order. The problem? It's in French, and, while I could decipher the basics, it wasn't enough to let me complete the puzzle. Not a fun game at all. October 5, 2012
SHORT AND NOT SWEET This game is no longer than two hours to finish. Very simple and very boring to play. The storyline is good and the fun of trying to put the right paper article together was interesting but that was it. Not even worth a free game credit as far as i am concerned. October 12, 2012
Paris 1925 It could be good but there's very little information as to what you need to do! The hint rarely works, but with a game like this it's needed everywhere. I couldn't get passed the dead body as I couldn't see a few items required and the hint button did nothing. I looked around for a walkthrough, but saw none. I lost interest because of this. October 2, 2012
No Thanks I really wanted to like this one but, alas, no. It was hard to see the objects to find, you couldn't skip past the "movies" and there was no help available for the photography portion. October 2, 2012
For some----okay To begin, the graphics were muddy,indistinct and fairly dark. Too much time between scene changes and not enough information to create a continuity in game play. Possibly, with a tweak or two, it could be a good game. There were other minor things, but not a buy for me.. October 1, 2012
Paris?? I thought Great, a game played in Paris, should be stimulating and fun. Boy was I WRONG! Boring story, ho hum game play and graphics...terrible. Donot waste your time and money. October 1, 2012
glenard I really wanted to like this game. It seemed to be very challenging. But---some of the items were impossible to find, had to use the hint button too many times. By the time I got to the second room, I got stuck. I couldn't find the last 3 pieces of the camera, started clicking around (which I hate to do) and it would tell me to use the hint button. Well, the hint button had stopped working. I spent half my demo time trying to figure out why the hint button wouldn't work and trying to figure out what to do. There was also too much time lapse between scenes. Before I delete, I will check and see if there is a walkthrough. I consider myself an excellent game player, so know it wasn't me. I really would have liked to keep playing. October 1, 2012
Paris 1925 Believe me, this is not the way Paris is; been there! Game graphics are poor; low quality game DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS GAME EVER!!! October 6, 2012
Not a good game, skip it if possible. This game is not good because though the graphics are OK the items are dinky and the response time is slow. it is a way to easy game, if you manage to find the items that is. It does seem from everything in it, a bit amateurish game and few minutes into the game I gave up and uninstalled it. It did not keep me hooked to it. You want to play great atmosphere of Paris game go for the "travelogue Paris" game here in bigfish. October 1, 2012
