There is a lot of games that fall into this category . I just replayed Nightlong [Union City Conspiracy] and think this one does.Boomers gave it a good review ,but some other sites picked it apart. I just think that this is a true classic and a keeper for me........Just one Boomers Opinion.. thanks

Another site gave Shivers 1&2 bad reviews but I loved both those games. The same site gave Conspiracies a bad review but that's a keeper for me. Conversely, everyone gave Grim Fandango a good review but I couldn't get into that game at all.

I also thought Nightlong was an excellent game.

Paradise. Everyone was so down on it when it first came out, but I really enjoyed it.

I love the wackiness of Starship Titanic and was astonished to find that so many people don't like it.

"Nightlong" was the first game I played through without a walkthrough - a nicely done game.

I almost didn't get and play my favourite game (Legacy of Time) because of the poor ratings on the Adventure websites. Ratings do more harm than good IMHO.

Rama. Mostly because of some insanely difficult puzzles which required you to calculate in Base-8 and Base-12 (I think, can't remember exactly), it got pretty bad marks in reviews. But I loved it. It was my first introduction into the world of Arthur C. Clarke and I've since read a lot of his books.

Ring II. I also liked Ring, which got absolutely horrible reviews from the general gaming sites and publications. But a couple of years after its release, I think the general opinion of Ring had reversed, and it was lauded as an innovative, successful game.

Haven't seen a reversl of the general opinion of Ring II yet. Someday.

Hmm. I liked Ring, although it was a tad 'strange' and I wonder what the makers had been drinking or smoking laugh . I haven't bought Ring II because of the negative reviews. Maybe I should. smile

I liked Nightlong and Ring I, but the one that will probably set me apart is (gasp) Temujin. It had that small view window, which was bad, but apart from that it was a fine game, or so I thought. Still do.

I don't suppose I'll survive long after admitting this.

Pollo -- it's keyboard control, not point-and-click. Are you a point-and-click-only kind of chicken? laugh

A review, just in case you're interested.

Keyboard-control is fine, and a bit of action is, too. I play RPG's frequently and sometimes action-adventures. I'll keep an eye out for it. smile

There are a lot, but the one that comes to mind, really, is Myst. I still can't believe that so many people can't stand it, think it's responsible for the (so-called) death of the genre, and get so vitriolic when discussing it!

Runaway and Road to INdia were another two that I saw horrible reviews for, so I didn't play them for a long time. But then I realy liked them. And Crystal Key 1. (In fact, I see so many reviews that say Dreamcatcher/TAC games are just bad in general, but I've never thought that).

Just goes to show not everyone has the same taste!
