Game journal Feb 01: Thorgal: Odin's Curse (Curse of Atlantis)

This game was amazingly short for a modern adventure, while acceptable in older games, it's just too short nowadays...

At first the game begin in a world of myths and monster, You are Thorgal Aerigsson, a peaceful viking trying to get home, but the raging storm won't allow to set sail...

While talking to village chief a soothsayer tells you that you son is in grave danger and you must hurry if you want to save him...

This is when the real quest begins...

The game is mostly item driven, although there are some real puzzles though, but it also has "bosses" and too many of them...

But since Thorgal is a peaceful Viking (ARGH! I cringe by simply typing those too words together), instead of simply killing the "boss" you usually shoot some item nearby that will knock him out...

It also has too many timed sequences, but you usually have enough time to do so...

My main complaint about this game is how the plot goes "Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy" near the middle...

You see, in the middle of the game you discover that you are actually a... a... Dare I say it?

AN ALIEN!

Apparently Thorgal family initially lived in ATLANTIS, but fled to THE STARS to escape the gods wrath, and return later...

Something happened to his ship and only Thorgal survived, as a baby, yet you meet yourself as a kid in the spaceship WHICH HAS CRASHED!

Urgh....

The game wasn't very challenging, but when it was it was furstrating, and the plot is just daft, while not horrid, it's definetely not worth it...
