CLICK-TROLS \ // III. CLICK-THROUGH \ ////////////////////////////\ /////////////////////////// /PART I. ADVENTRODUCTION / ///////////////////////// I've played a lot better adventure games than Crystal Key II. It's got some neat puzzles jumbled up in it, but it couldn't hold my interest for squat. There's a ton of back-tracking to do, and crucial points are often blocked off with no explanation until later in the game (when you mysteriously have access to them.) It's also very glitchy. The best thing about it may be some of its puzzle techniques, but they're still nothing new to the genre. The graphics, which would seem to be the game's highlight, suffer from bugs and poor coding. All in all, I can't help but feel that this game would have been better under the old, third-person adventure interface, but I digress. If you get the game for free, it might be worth playing, but I wouldn't pay for it. //////////////////////// /PART II. CLICK-TROLS / ////////////////////// Controlling Call is simple. The left mouse button performs an action, and the right one brings up your inventory. Items can also be dragged from your inventory to an on-screen item to signify intent of usage. You can even combine items in rare instances. Spacebar is the most helpful tool you have, though, as it allows you to skip the numerous, over-used cutscenes, as well as drawn-out dialogue. Escape will take temporarily to menu, where you can save, load or quit a game. There's also an options menu, where you can change the music volume or disable subtitles (not recommended). /////////////////////////// /PART III.
