A comparatively timely Mojo review 17 Feb, 2010, 01:17 / 5 comments

Sure, Hal Barwood and Noah Falstein's (Fate of Atlantis) latest adventure game, Mata Hari, may have been released a long time ago, but our review is still far more punctual than other examples that could be cited.

Anyway, Mata Hari. Was that dame a handful or what?

    It really looks peculiar. The graphics isn't very appealing - very weird. I'd like it if the graphics had a sense of adventure.

    From what I've seen of it, the character models don't look that appealing - but the backgrounds (pre-rendered?) look beautiful.

    I think Lizst was referring to the graphical style, and I agree, it's not my favourite. A lot of German adventure games seem to have it -- it's sort of pseudo-realistic. The later Simon the Sorcerer games went down the route as well.

    My tastes are also such that I generally find the visual style of games to be less interesting the more realistic they strive to be, but for Mata Hari's tone and subject matter, I found the style chosen to be well-suited.

    Wow, that was a hell of a comprehensive review, especially for a game only extraneously tied to Mojo!

    I think it's still a little bit pricey for me. Maybe later.
