Goodbye Deponia

It took me a bit, but I finally made it through the final chapter of the Deponia series. Things are really heating up as it appears that Rufus is down to his last lives to try to stop the destruction of Deponia. Yet again you will have to utilize your clever wit, and amazingly good looks to get yourself through this game, but wait there's a twist, you'll have to do it from three different perspectives, but I must not say anything else, less I ruin the fun for you all.

Graphically we're talking the same engine, but the new characters added into the story are both humorous, and some are slightly disturbing (I'm looking at you Burrito Wrap Lady). You'll get to explore the Sewers of Deponia, a war torn city of Deponia, and of course the Upper Ascension tower which contains the last lifeboat to Elysium.

The voice acting once again is the same, but well crafted dialogue at almost every turn, with a little bit of humor that shows. l have to say that this was probably the best written one of the series.

Let's skip over the controls because at this point we know its a point and click adventure. So lets get right into it. There were parts of this game I really enjoyed, and then there were parts that left me wanting more. There were also puzzles that I accidentally stumbled into the solution out of frustration, or mere coincidence. Either way at the end of the day this was a game that I enjoyed playing. There was a lot of action in the game when I wasn't stuck with trying to figure out what to do next in the game, and I think that together as a series this is a game that if you have a slightly open mind and a slightly off beat sense of humor you'll enjoy playing from start to finish.

I do think they left a couple of minor story lines out there, and there wasn't as much resolution at the end, and to be honest I was not a fan of the end, but maybe I'm in the minority there. For the main storyline there was a slight finality to it, and I think that maybe my biggest problem is that I grew accustom to the other characters and wanted them to be present at the end, but in the end it felt rushed and so I was left slightly unsatisfied.

Now with all this said I have to say that I enjoyed the game, and I think you'll like it as well. The musical interludes continue to spark humorous chronicling of your journey, and so without further delay I have to give this game an 8.7 out of 10.
