Fenimore Fillmore is back...to stay!Oct. 14 2004

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. Enjoy...!!

Pretty SadAug. 15 2006
- Published on Amazon.com
I admit I've only played through the first few scenes of this game, but so far everything about it is pretty bad. I have no urge to keep playing to see if it gets better, so I probably won't even bother. The controls are VERY clunky, with ever-changing camera angles and restricted cursor motion that make it difficult to navigate. And so far, the story is lame. I bought it because the box references Monkey Island and the old Sierra games, but I have yet to see any of the humor or intrigue of those games. Oh, and there's nothing special about the graphics or voice acting either.
I'm starting to think the adventure game really is dead. I kind of feel bad for The Adventure Company. They're single-handedly trying to keep adventure gaming alive, but they keep churning out really bad games.
I give this game two stars instead of one because I've barely played it, and maybe it gets better as it goes. But when I'm bored AND frustrated with a game after the first half hour, that's a pretty bad sign.
