The third and best game in the Runaway series. A true masterpiece. Although the first two games sometimes reminded me of Broken Sword (one of the best adventure game series of all time), they were never really on the same level as Broken Sword. Runaway 3 changed that. From the very beginning, it's evident that a lot of work went into every little aspect of this game. Everything from the past games was improved, and many of the annoyances were fixed. Some of the puzzles were still a bit too hard/illogical, but the new in-game hint system was very helpful. In fact, it seems like the developers wanted you to use it (or even forced you to), but that's actually a good thing. It's hard to explain, so I'll just leave it at that.
As a standalone game, Runaway 3 is an excellent adventure game. There are tons of references, jokes, and breaking of the fourth wall that will have you laughing from start to finish. You can ask one character about previous Runaway games. I don't want to spoil anything because his commentary was one of the highlights of this experience, but that alone made this game worth playing. The story also seemed to be much more coherent than previous games, which really helped elevate the quality of the game to a whole new level comparable to the likes of classic adventure games such as Broken Sword, Myst, or Grim Fandango .
In conclusion, this game should be in everyone's wishlist. There's something here for everyone, regardless of whether you have played adventure games before. As always, I recommend playing the previous games in the series, but in this case it's not necessary.
