Motor Town: Soul of the Machine
A+++ masterpeace of 2013
This is a very beautiful stunning breathtaking game that IS underestimated by the audience. I loved every aspect of it - very well developed storyline mixed with excellent graphics smart puzzles and high quality ambient sound FX. I do not know why people say bad words about it. It is a real mega hit of 2013.

before you buy be aware no walkthrough but forum helps
it is not a hard game to play so a walkthrough isn't really needed. you will have to think a little. hints/skips charge fast so that helps. i used the forum once. i figured the rest out. no sound was used. i played casual.

Excellent. must try!
I bought this game simply because it's from Alawar. I don't try the demo as I know it will be good. In fact, this game sold as an SE surprises me. This game has a good quality factor like a CE should have, only it doesn't have a map but it doesnt matter because the hint button is helpful. It shows you where to go, not tells you WHAT to do. I am not an English native speaker and I never remember what room is in what place. There is little backtracking and it's quite easy to navigate that you know what you should do if you find an inventory item. Still, I don't see why this game receives bad rating for some people. The fact that Alawar releases this game itself as an SE but it has a quality like a CE is already good. I wish Alawar could produce more games like this.

what a great game!!
I totally agree with the review of Sheerija!
This is one heck of a game!! I loved every single second, and I played about 5 hours, I don't play fast.
The storyline is fantastic, I was completly engrossed by it!
Once you get out of the house (this only happens after the demo ends), the game only gets better. There are tons and tons of scenes. But they are divided into different parts, once you've finished a part, you don't have to go back there anymore, which keeps the running around under control.
The HOS are partially interactive, and can be quite challenging, but in a very good and fun way. I absolutely loved those!
The puzzles I liked a lot, you had to use your braincells for them!
I really had a great time with this game, and hope you will too! Enjoy!

Marvelous even without Walkthrough
I loved the graphics and the storyline in Motor city. Even though many people complained about the missing walkthrough this is an excellent game and walkthroughs can be found in the internet.

Intriguing Storyline Definitely Out There - Review Of Completed Game
Story: You take on the role of a young journalist who is desperate for a big story so you accept the offer to try and get an interview with the famous inventor Paul Camping whose latest invention is to try and create cars with souls.
There is widescreen at least for me. Displayed just fine on my 20 inch monitor. No tech issues.
2 play modes: I played expert mode. There are no sparkles not even for the HOS. There are black bar tips.
HOS: A total of 34 locations. These are definitely on the Sanford & Son junkyard pile side however I got through them with little difficulty but did have to use a few hints here. They are also interactive. Hint is also helpful outside of HOS. Takes a few minutes for charge up.
PUZZLES: A total of 21 puzzles I didn't come across anything new. The usual run of the mill but found most doable but did skip a couple of these. Skip also takes a few minutes.
Well I was hooked to this from the get go while yes the story line is a bit "out there" but I sure enjoyed this one. I didn't stop playing this until I got to the end.
The graphics are definitely grungy/creepy style. I found them to be quite nice.
The characters and voice overs a very well done here.
I just thought this game had a lot to do and places to go. At first this started out to where you use inventory right away but the further I moved along in the game a lot of back tracking and I thought I map would have been helpful.
As for the game length I'm one that takes my time and don't rush through my games and I found this to be a good length @ 6 1/2 hours for me. May be more/less for you though.
Overall 5 stars from me. Thanks Big Fish and developer for a great game here with a bit of a different story line.
As always, give it a whirl and decide for yourself.

Motor Town: Soul Of the Machine Hits The Mark
I really liked this game. It just seemed to flow so well. The hand-drawn scenes were beautiful. Lots of quirky characters. Loved the 50's rebel with the guitar and the 70's hippie.
Good soundtrack; not overdone. Plenty of the things we expect in a HOPA, A nice variety of mini-games, puzzles and hidden objects. Hidden objects were clear and not over-crowded No over-click penalties and that is a plus for me.
Great hint button, "It did not give you the answer". It gave you a direction to go in so you could make your own discoveries. Trotting around was minimal and I found my way very easily from scene to scene. The journal was a life-saver on solving some of difficult puzzles. It took me a while to figure out the locker combination and then it all of a sudden hit me. I really like a challenge when it comes to the mini-games and puzzles.
A straight-forward game, familiar plot with a interesting twist. Enjoyed playing Motor Town and will play it again very soon.
Good work devs and thank you BFG for another wonderful game experience.

One of The Best
This game was right down my alley. It was so good to not have monsters and skulls all over the place. The HOs were clear but were still somewhat of a challenge and I liked the interaction. The game is long so I feel you get your moneys worth. No map but the hint button takes you where you need to go. Found items are generally used close by. (Not always) The music was not annoying. A stress reducer in my book. This might not be what an expert would enjoy.

I love HOGs, but sometimes I would like something just alittle different and this game fit the bill. Cars with souls, along with creepy scenery, fun mini-games all in a SE, it's a win for me! Highly recommend!
