RHEM 2 Reviewed
8:21 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Applelinks recently reviewed RHEM 2, Got Game Entertainment's intricate first person puzzle based adventure. Comparing the game to Myst, Applelinks found little to dislike in RHEM 2 and gave it a score of 4 out of 5.

Like Myst, R2 is laid out in a series of spooky, rendered environments that you move through by clicking. If you can move in a certain direction, your mouse turns into a finger pointing the way. If you can interact with an item, it turns into a grabbing hand. Each view is like a postcard, and when you change direction, or move forward, there's a slight delay, and a dissolve to the new view. This has two effects: one, it stops you from taking actions before the game wants to you to (you cannot, for example, run into a room before the door closes), and second, it creates this wonderful sense of suspense, like walking (creeping) through a haunted house.
To read the full review head over to the link listed below. A newly released demo of the game can be downloaded from Macgamefiles.com.
