A beautifully rendered game, perhaps the single most artistic in all of Newgrounds except perhaps Gretel and Hansel. My first thought upon completion was (strangely enough) Bioshock: I shall tell you why. The story and characters were spot on, in particular that of The Devil. The atmosphere and tone (dark, yet delicate) was perfect. But, in my opinion, Bioshock's gameplay was dull and rather repetitive - however the great storyline and characters really made up for that, just as they do in Loondon. My two biggest problems with the game was: firstly, the fact that you really don't do anything for yourself, there's no real challenge to it, you just click whatever lights up so there is no real challenge for the player; secondly, and perhaps the most frustrating, is the fact that you are presented with such wonderful characters that never really flourish and its a shame because every person I met throughout the game I took an interest in straight away. For example: early in the game you meet a cruel hunter who is chasing a wolfman (were-wolf). Here we are presented with two very interesting characters....Who's role in the story have almost no significance and screentime of about twenty seconds. I know it takes alot of effort to create a game - believe me I do! But really it just seems rushed. If the programmers had taken just a little longer on the game, woven a little more into the story, I think I would easily bump my rating up to 9 STARS - maybe even 10. In conclusion, Loondon is a brilliant game and really worth a try, if just for the story. If there was a sequel would I play it? Certainly. Perhaps we could even have a closer look at the characters I quickly learnt to love and quickly lost.
