Posted by newsbot on May 24th 2008



Overclocked is the unfortunate and sad reality of the adventuregame genre today – a genre populated by cheaply produced and reallyquite uninteresting titles made primarily for Nordic and Germanaudiences where they somehow manage to cling to the fringe ofpopularity.There are many problems with Overclocked, not least ofwhich is the off-kilter and often irrelevant dialogue. The interface isalso a little unwieldy at times and there are a whole slew of smallererrors and tweaks that really should have been done to the game asrudimentary courtesy for players.
