Inside Mac Games has posted a review of the first-person adventure game Penumbra: Overture from Frictional Games. Here's a clip from the review:

The game mechanism of moving the mouse to open things gives the game a nice feeling when exploring, but it becomes a double edged sword when it comes to fighting. Unlike a Myst style game, in Penumbra: Overture critters do attack and if attacked you must either run or fight back. But once into the game you might think your playing a First Person Shooter (FPS). Don't get fooled because there are no guns and except for very specific situations you'll be at a disadvantage fighting things especially THE AGGRESSIVE LARGER THAN AVERAGE SPIDERS! Primarily, the spiders are hard to whack. If you end up running for your life and wondering what's so hard about swinging a hammer, you picked the wrong technique.
