In this episode you find out a little more about some of the bizarre experiments that are going on and if you read Dr Rycroft's files closely he talks about what he thinks you are...

You continue to escape and climb higher within the complex, is Venus a friend or just some kind of activist for some faction who want to get their hands on you? is Dr Rycroft here to help you or simply dissect you like a lab rat? All you know is you must escape and find out more!!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Played this quite a while ago. I found it and he story as a whole to be quite intriguing.

Is Episode 6 coming out?? I am waiting for more, the valve was easy to set!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

This episode was more of finding out the story of the main character (indestructible, really?) and the experiment. I enjoyed reading the data pads and other info.

It was easy to set the pressure valves, but the last two were hard to spot.

I doubt that x-rays could show increasing activities inside one's brain. Try fMRI next time. :P

I think this game is an improvement on the previous two. It was more orientated towards puzzles than pixel hunts (as opposed to the previous game where the only challenge is the pixel hunt), but the puzzles could still have been more challenging. As with the previous 2 games, you get a score at the end which is just a number - achievements would have been more welcome.

The things you're introduced to, despite still being outlandish, are presented in a slightly more subtle way than a vampire in your face. I'm liking how the story is starting to unfold - and that is really the selling point to this series. It's very imaginative, and despite my criticism for the lack of subtlety in the previous game, it's also refreshing to see a game not shy about revealing its mysteries.

One final wish would have been more of the storyline to be revealed through the game in a way other than reading the text off a computer screen and the odd datapad, but if the alternative would have been to leave these things out entirely then this is of course better.

The first game could maybe be compared to the first Matrix film, if you think it was something that was completely different and got people excited about the sequel. Then when the 2nd came out, it had more explosions and was "bigger" (and had vampires) but that didn't make it a better film - as with the 2nd game. Thankfully though, the 3rd effort in this series is not like the utter disappointment of Matrix 3.

So all in all an improvement that makes the game and the series worthy of the author who has created other popular games. I'm glad the next game is just a click away, and I won't delay for long!

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Just started this series yesterday after finding the first one during a browsing session. "Being One" is by far my favorite point and click series! I will say that this one is not as great as the first two. I rather enjoyed the tally counts for Datapads, specimen samples, etc., and those were not included here. However, we at least got some major story background, which completely made up for it. I can't wait to continue this series!!!!
