a great gaming experience
22 November 2000 | by (Utrecht, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I am a movie buff, but when it comes to "interactive movies" I do not compare them to normal cinema, because that isn't doing them both justice. A computer game has to be fun. Tex Murphy adventures are all fun. You will love the anti-hero tex Murphy, who doesn't take himself seriously, but still gets you involved in great told stories and solves them also. The overseer has some great dramatic scenes, which I do not see often in computer games. The humour in this Tex Murphy is as great as ever. You just have to see it, and when you do I know you will get hooked. It isn't that easy to get from one scene to the next one, there are a lot of puzzles to be solved, but when needed hints are provided, so it really makes you believe you are solving mysteries. So when people say the plot isn't that special, I can confirm that. But people forget that the experience on a computer is very different from watching a movie on the television. Even a b-movie type plot can be enjoyed as a oscar winning plot on the computer. "Overseer" delivers a great gaming experience with a very sympathetic Michael York. The graphics are beautiful. And if this adventure is being typecasted as a b-movie,so be it but "Overseer" (as the whole experience) is even better then most A-movies. Go play it!
