The Review
It really saddens me but I can't recommend this game. I was one of the kickstarter backers and I had high hopes for this game but it falls flat.
First let's start with the pros. This game looks beautiful. It looks like a storybook and it's also drawn in the Psychonauts style which looks very good. The game has great voice acting with actors like Jack Black and Elijah Wood. And finally the music sounds very nice and fit perfectly with the game.
Now the cons. The game is very simple for an point-and-click adventure. Theirs is lack of options for how you deal with people and objects. In older point-and-click adventure games you would have options to look, interact, or take most objects but in the game all you can do is click on objects and if the character can take the object he/she will if they can't they will comment on it. It also got the lazy game mechanic where items disappear when it is used to solve a puzzle. The interaction between the player characters and NPCs are also very limited and when you solve their puzzle you can't even talk with them anymore. And talking about puzzles the puzzles of act 1 was OK but the puzzles for act 2 was terrible. The knot puzzle was by far the worse and their is little to no clue of how to solve it on your own. They also added dual puzzles for act 2 which makes no sense. For example to repair Shay's robot you will need Vella to see some symbols but that makes no sense as Shay and Vella have no way of communicating with each other. So Shay is just guessing the solution. But the biggest failure of this game is the story. For a point-and-click adventure game story is the most important feature. Act 1 started off with with many interesting plot threads but they either became plot-holes or has very little payoff in act 2. The ending for Broken Age is one of the most disappointing endings that I have ever encountered. Most of the important plot threads like dealing with the true villain are all done off screen!
This game feels very incomplete which is sad as I thought that $3,336,371 and 3 years of development would be enough to make great game but I was wrong.

Gematsu is a gaming news forum that is filled with some of the most passive aggressive Sony fanboys that you have ever seen. The community of that site is very cancerous. Stay away for your own sake.
