I'll agree that the Runaway series is definitely one of the best adventure games made. It's up there in quality with the first 3 Monkey Island games, but without the continual humour. There are some serious moments in each game, but overall it's light hearted stuff.

The entire Pendulo pack is worth the money if you like adventure games. These are the 'middle school' (Monkey Island) adventures, not the 'old school' (think early Sierra - Kings Quest) stuff.

You can't die, you can't make a wrong decision, but you can have a lot of fun trying. Unlike early Sierra games, where if you tried something off beat you'd be punished with death, that just doesn't happen here. Try anything and everything, the worst you get is a "No", and nothing happens.

Fantastic games.
Go.
Buy.
Now !

Reading these posts gives some hope that this third game in the series (I'm just starting it today) will be much better than the previous 2. The setting, story, characters in the Runaway series are really cool, but the gameplay is really awful. I'm no point-n-click adventure game expert (I've only played like 4 or 5 so far) but maybe I got spoiled by the first games I played, e.g: Broken Sword I and II, Gemini Rue.. at least compared to those Runaway 1 and 2 are pretty bad. Unintuitive puzzles, horrible dialogue system, pixel hunting that "boggles the mind" (pun intended), illogical resolutions. Really, a low budget indie title like Gemini Rue mops the floor with Runaway, all day.

Still I keep playing them because, like I already said, I love the characters, situations, and style. But I'm sure I would enjoy it much better if it was an animated movie.

I'm not sure if you'd like the 3rd part too, and i guess you were spoiled, like you said, but these games are made by pretty small studio, they dont have hundreds of people working on this game, there is only 10 of them as far as i remember, maybe less, i wouldnd't expect a lot of 'super quality' game, but this game seems just as good as others, not sure what you can possibly dislike, anyway, everyone's got an opinion, hope you like it.

Well, to be honest I'm already at chapter 3 and I can already say I think this one is much better than the first two in the series, gameplay wise. I guess I'll have to wait and see if it keeps it up till the end, but so far so good.

Hmm, i should be be fullscreen, but resolution is a problem i guess, it programatically doesnt support full hd, it came out before full hd(i assume you are talking about first game)
