Surface: The Pantheon
Very Interesting Game
This game had a great idea for their story. It was a little bit of everything. Sort of like the Bermuda Triangle, a little blend of a few Hollywood movie themes and great graphics. The main leads (the mom) voice was a tad annoying because of the extended groans and overacting, but this game took you from Earth to another planet to deal with aliens and then back to Earth again.

too much wandering around
I get bored having to go back & forth just to get 1 item I need. And I don't like being in a HOG area and having to leave to get an item I need to complete the HOG - and often have to do this more than once.
I did think it was ok to use my inventory during a HOG but having to leave got on my nerves.
-- Just not the best I have played and I did not start & end the game in one or two days. I just played a little here & there - did not keep my interest as well.
But I did give it a 4 because despite there being evil - it was not gloomy - in fact the great Bright beautiful Graphics is why I liked this game.

This game was likeable. It?s usually difficult puzzles or things to figure out that make a game interesting for me, so I was surprised the story line played an important role in how much I enjoyed this game. Even on the hardest level most of the things to do were relatively simple, as were most of the puzzles (once I figured out what was supposed to happen). I don?t know why I thought most of the puzzles had a sense of sameness, but I did ? maybe the same brain cell areas kicked in or something. The HO areas were different - you had to look in your inventory as well as in the HO. If you didn?t have the needed object in your inventory you had to go find it. I liked that you could lock the inventory instead of having it flip up and down in a dizzying manner. The graphics were great. It?s a red/orange/yellow kind of alien world with lots of interesting scenes. Really, the only thing I didn?t like was the overly breathy and dramatic voice of the mother. I always turn the music down or off, and should have done the voice sooner too.

Terrible voice-acting ruins it.
- Intriguing story.
- Entertaining puzzles.
- Decently tricky.
- The most cringe-worthy voice acting I've heard in a long time. I literally ruined the whole game. I wanted to just strangle everyone in this game (especially the main character) just to shut them up. And the "accents" were terrible.
- It also felt a bit short, this might be because I had to skip most of the cut-scenes as I couldn't listen to this woman whine anymore.

Very boring and confusing story. Very confusing and unlikable challenges. Did not like it at all!!

Not My Cup of Tea
I really tried to like this game. Slightly boring and frustrating. I called it quits after getting half-way through. Just a wee tad too frustrating for me. Some of the objects used for certain tasks were so illogical. I repeatedly had to use the hint button just because I never would have guessed that I should be using that object for that particular task. ie. a can opener was used to cut away at the bars of a grocery cart. Really, what were they thinking.

Bad story-line, unlogical tasks - waist of time.
It's a mystery that some likes this.
