When it first came out, the adventure gaming was in decline, and many people considered Runaway to be some sort of a genre messiah. Sadly, it wasn't. While Pendulo surely tried to match Sierra's scale and Lucas Arts' wit, they failed in recreating the two key aspects that made adventure games great: puzzles and characters.
Too many of the challenges the player faces in the game are stupid, if not completely Illogical (getting the wrench and filling the tank, to name a few). And the two main characters are as underdeveloped and unlikable as they can get. Gina is nothing more than a damsel in distress, completely objectified and helpless; and Brian is shown as a self-centered jerk, totally unmoved by anything that happens around him, while stopping at nothing to fulfill his, often questionable, agenda.
Those hoping to find another Guybrush and Elaine, or Gabriel and Grace (or even George and Nico, for that matter), should skip this game.
