1938. James Lee Quatermain is a man of many talents, yet holding on to money isn't one of them. James is an adventurer by trade, just like his legendary great-grandfather Allan Quatermain. And he knows how to squeeze money out of this famous name of his, while at the same time despising it. Despising those who believe his great-grandfather's tales of the supernatural and those who make fun of them alike.
Accordingly, Quatermain isn't all too keen on escorting Jennifer Goodwin, an US agent and former colleague of his, to an Egyptian temple structure in order to retrieve an ancient artifact - The Heart of Atlantis. Neither does he believe in the reputed invigorating qualities of this artifact, nor does he care the least that a division of the Ahnenerbe, the Nazi department specialized in the occult, is after The Heart as well.
But life has its ways of changing one's perspective. Quatermain soon finds himself part of a hunt across the globe - from the stormy deserts of Egypt to the icy depths of the Arctic, and all the way to the steaming jungles of Guatemala. In long forgotten temple structures the thrill of the chase awakens the true adventurer in Quatermain, as he and agent Goodwin strive to be one step ahead of the Nazis and the Russians, one step closer to obtaining the Heart of Atlantis. And deep in these temples, where age-old guardians awake from their eternal slumber, James soon learns that his great-grandfather's stories are not as crazy as he had always believed. For all things live forever, though at times they sleep and are forgotten...

Therefore, despite the game only having a few reviews, some of which are not great, I decided to give it a go - and I'm glad I did! Agreed, it doesn't have the polish of Uncharted, but still has some good action sequences, and despite only being on the second day of playing, the puzzles have been taxing enough to get me thinking but not too hard to send me looking for solutions online (ok, maybe just a little bit!) and finding all of the treasures and upgrading skills makes the game even more fun.
Would I have paid full price for it? Probably not, but then I rarely ever buy a game at the full price when it first comes out but for the £15 I paid, I think it is well worth a try - especially if, like me, you enjoy this type of game and think that more game developers should be looking at the types of games that the 'older generation' may enjoy!
In terms of time Deadfall Adventures consists of 70% shooting, 10% exploration and 20% puzzle-solving.
You can level up some of your skills: health, endurance, re-load speed, aiming etc.
It is a linear game so don't expect something like Far Cry 3.
You get in-game hints for the puzzles, how useful they are depends on your chosen difficulty level.
If you play the game on Easy you get more or better hints, which I think is useful to know if you are terrible at puzzles.
My playthrough of the campaign took about 10 hours on Normal.
I have five complaints about the game:
1. I wish the characters and their relationships had more depth
2. there is little variation in the enemy types
3. the check-point system is often punishing and frustrating
4. the storyline lacks that something extra to keep it truly interesting and unique
5. the final boss fights were quite buggy
My biggest issue is the first one. There is simply not enough character building in the game.
The average military shooter has deeper characters than what you get in here.
Any game based on the classic adventure books and films should have engaging characters because the storyline is so cliché by now.
What makes films like Indiana Jones and games like Unchartered so good despite the unoriginal storylines are the characters. They are great.
In this game they are not, so that part of the game feels very weak.
I like the concept of the storyline, what they aimed for, but the execution is only average at best.Read more ›
The Xbox 360 seems to struggle with the graphics and the controls just don't feel right, It might play better on the PC ver but the xbox ver is not a great experience, Not sure why the unreal engine feels so strained.
It's worth a play, the locations and some elements of it are fantastic, the sound is great (not the acting) but the game could of been so much more with a bit more of a polish.
Another premature game that could of done with another 6 months in the womb.
Its a FPS thats back to basics with a good storyline and nice polished gfx, the voice acting is utter cheese but it adds to the overall feel of the game.
If you like a basic shooter with alittle history thrown in (not all of it remotely true) then go for it, Its not a AAA Blockbuster games by no means but that doesnt make it any less entertaining. Plus if your a Gamerscore chaser then its also easy to get 1000G!
My gripes with this game come from some bland levels and a few bugs that should have been ironed out. The thing with the levels is that it all starts out very well in Egyptian Tombs, but then ends up in the typical settings like mines and a snowbound section etc, before returning to some atmospheric stuff at the end.
But there are some bugs though, the biggest one I found was to do with that notepad I mentioned. Some of the puzzles are 2 or 3 puzzles in one. You finish one part, then another part needs doing. During these, the notepad changes to the next part of the puzzle. I tried not to use the notepad, but sometimes, you have to as there's no other clues to be found. One bug occured during one such puzzle! The pad didn't change to the new puzzle and there were ZERO visual clues to be found. I looked the thing up online and noticed the pad should have changed. If I didn't look it up, then I'd still be there now.
But, it's a game that's worth a play at least once. There's plenty to see and collect etc and I enjoyed my playthrough and will be quite happy to play this again one day!
