Compared to Syberia it has the same quality great scenery but as gameplay and characters is quite different. And the game is somehow depressing smile
You are actually stuck solving a murder case on an unstable tower built on a sinking island and in the middle of a hurricane with somehow not so good chances of getting off this island soon smile
The story and characters are somehow dark and have a lot of secrets smile
Don't expect the same game smile

"IMHO" comments: the way story unfolds, i think, is in similar but better way than in "murder in the orient express" and clues/inventory system is similar to CSI:hard evidence (haven't played other csi games)

HI user, thanks for your description. I did not expect Sinking Island to have the same thematic as Syberia, however being a game by Sokal one tends to have certain expectations about the quality of the story, the graphics, etc , so I hope it will meet my expectations. Did it meet yours?

Well it surprised me smile
I did not have any expectations as I did not finish Paradise - somehow got bored of it (don't remember why) and then found Amerzone but left it somewhere about 1/4 of the game finished for "not being in the mood for old games" (it sits next to Phantasmagoria - shame on me)
So Sinking Island was different than Syberia (Not so involving smile ) but a pleasant surprise - nice and twisted story, "alive" characters and a great setting smile
( and the tower/hotel is one of my favorite places to be (fiction and reality) smile )

I got bored with Paradise too. Jedi you should play Sinking Island if you like the murder mystery games and if you like Sokal's games. I'm not sure when is it going to be released in UK and US but i thing it's going to be very soon

Cheers

I don't think there is an official release date. It's rather odd because it's been almost 4 months i first saw this game here...

Sinking Island was definitely a murder mystery adventure game. Not just you have to investigate but practically you put all the pieces together to complete the investigation. In other similar games you only ask questions and a cut scene shows up... smile

2. The other most disturbing thing, although is very usual with Sokal's games, is that you have to walk very large distances and most times twice.


Thank you Volkana thanks for writing this informative review.

Sinking Island is scheduled to be released in NA this fall.

The above 2 points are useful observations thumbsup of the game.

By the way, would you happen to know if Dead Mountaineer's Hotel has similar characteristics??
