I definitely confirm ;) Maybe it could be sort of nice to play the game afterwards, as a sort of "second look". Standalone, it's not really enjoyable.

The game sure looks impressive! It has got that distinct spirit of adventure from 80ies pulp fantasy, which I am quite fond of. Too bad that judging by your review the game itself does not keep up with the presentation. So I guess it would be a better idea to get my hands on the actual comic books?

Following up on their first attempt at a narrative comic book conversion (i.e. not counting Asterix or Tintin platformers, the arcadey North & South etc.), Infogrames tackled The Quest for the Time-Bird. You may not have heard of it, since the French have their very own, strong comic book tradition. It's a fantasy tale featuring an ageing, battle-hardened warrior and a top-heavy young woman on a quest (surprise!) to stop an evil magician from escaping his mystical prison to enslave the world. Typical for French comics, it includes a number of shady characters, dark themes, pulpy imagery, plot twists and ends on a rather unhappy note.
