Real Gamer has posted a new review of Deck13's Jack Keane. The adventure game follows the humorous adventures of Jack as he struggles to solve the mysteries of Tooth Island and his own past. Real Gamer gave the game a score of 7 out of 10.
From the review:
Despite a little silliness, the puzzles at the heart of the matter are actually pretty good, and it brings me to tears to find that this is a genuine surprise in a modern adventure game. Credit where credit's due, though, even without comparison to sub-par competition, Jack Keane provides some tantalising and usually logically-solvable problems from start to finish. It's still a case of 'use the bin bag on the skeleton', but it does at least reason things well, and those familiar with the classic Lucas Arts titles will feel very much at home here. There's rarely any horrific backtracking, either. In fact, quite the opposite is true: Jack Keane is an exceptionally driven, forward-moving experience, perfectly paced and always giving an incentive for progression.Head over to the site below to read the full review.
Real Gamer: Jack Keane Review
That incentive is rather important, as Jack Keane is a huge game. The game is split into eleven chapters, each taking anywhere between half an hour and three hours to complete. It's not huge in a Bethesda RPG sense by any means – areas are nicely compact and everything always lies within easy reach. But the scale of the narrative may daunt the younger or less experienced sector of the audience that would otherwise clearly find an appealing title in Jack Keane. It's no bad thing to make a lengthy game, and this one certainly presents value for money if nothing else, but its sprawling nature does seem somewhat at odds with the otherwise mainstream style.
