It's the year 1996: The cute cowboy Fenimore Fillmore makes his debut in the classic comic adventure "3 Skulls of the Toltecs". The game inspired me at that time with numerous puzzles, a nice story, a pleasant hero and beautiful cutscenes. The Spanish developers Revistronic succeeded in creating a perfectly beautiful adventure game, which is still worthwhile to play today. 3 Skulls rightfully received high ratings and the sales figures in Europe were o.k. too.
So I wondered, why they waited whole eight years to announce the successor "Wanted" unexpectedly. It's new that our hero has changed into 3D-perspective - but to eliminate all fears at once: "Wanted" stays as classic comic adventure game. And what a comic adventure!
The predecessor was already colorful at that time and this remained preserved. The characters are well woven into the wonderful backgrounds, which are completely created in real time, following the moves of the player when running or looking to the right or left. Here real Comic Western atmosphere is so perfectly imparted, as not succeeded so far yet. The whole game comes across so real, as if you would play an animated cartoon. And thus "Wanted" sets new standards at least in the 3D-adventure-area!
The whole spectacle is rounded off by a simple operated, almost optimal mouse control. So this sympathetic supergame, which will not only enthuse adventure fans, permits no other conclusion than a befitting rating within the highest range. Finally I hope we won't have to wait another eight years, until the third part of "Wanted" or at least another new game by Revistronic.
Tips: (Because some reviewers drink to much rum or are too old for this things)
To skip the repetitive animation sequences: press END.
Shooting gallery: faster your mouse speed or lower configuration options and you'll pass it easily...just adjust the settings...
To win the Winchester: The robot loves oil, remember.
More carrots: Use the second bucket ...it will make your live a lot easier.
Ambush: Fenimore has two hands and two revolvers, you have 2 buttons in your mouse...
Don't drink BACARDI when you are playing... is a bad, bad rum.
