Superheroes, Comedy, and Mystek- Oh My!
18 July 2003 | by (Somewhere) – See all my reviews

Anachronox is a generally-ignored game-turned-movie by the Ion Storm team. Though the game is usually positive, its best part was its cutscenes which have been compounded to form Anachronox: The Movie (ATM.)

ATM's main character is Sylvester Bucelli ("Sly Boots") whose quest to pay his bar tab embarks him on a Quest To Save The UniverseT. Characters ooze with personality, made believeable by the superb voice talent, through a mostly cohesive and perhaps 'short' plot, though these qualms are minor. (Some cutscenes were cut and the game was shortened.) There's humor in nearly every scene and you probably wouldn't notice. Graphically, all is modeled with a modified Quake II engine- many, many polygons for those unknowing- but all the characters at least look vibrant.

Anachronox has a zany humor sense within a cohesive plot which, if I've seen it prior, don't recall it being done so well.
