Flotsam attends the Monster Ball and there he joins two journalists -- the strong-jawed Dan Murray and the gloriously frenetic Liz Allaire. Is this oddball team fated to sabotage themselves? Or is their destiny even more monstrous?

Your review makes me want to play. I bought Runaway 3 and just played through part of it and got bored. I hated that because it is one of those games I want to like. So when I saw The Next Big Thing, I was thinking meh, not going to buy it but your review makes me think that it was fun and being a different storyline, it will be fun to play.

thanks for the link, Becky, and the review, flotsam! I know I really liked Liz in the demo, a lot more than Gina as a matter of fact. wink Looking forward to the full game very much! bunny

Thanks Flotsam for your review. It sounds like a game that is fun and enjoyable, which, for me, is most important. It's definitely on my list.

Ramona: I'm so glad to here someone else say what I was feeling about Runaway 3. It was a game I'd been looking forward to and really wanted to enjoy. After getting about 1/4 through I just gave up because I just couldn't enjoy it.

Loved the game, but found it a bit short? Was that just me?

Venus, you won't be disappointed with the full length Liz.


Quantity has a quality all of its own

Flotsam, I can't wait! I just won the game in the giveaway, so I'm about to spend a lot of time with her. grin

duh I have tried to play this game twice but just didn't really like it. I get impatient with the dialog and to have to choose the answers. I feel bad because I did win the game through GB but just couldn't get into it. hardwall
