"The adventure game genre has undergone a resurgence lately with the wonderful and terrible The Walking Dead from Telltale Games. Rising from what many thought to be its grave, adventure has stepped back into the fold with each new game hoping to solidify its rebirth. Enter A New Beginning from Daedalic Games. Classic point-and-click adventure gameplay down to its roots, the game does its best to be provocative and gutsy. It is a cautionary tale of environmental awareness; it is a science fiction thriller with time travel and world destruction; it is a compilation of interesting and hard-to-complete puzzles. The blend seems ripe for a quality game, but does it live up to its goal and earn a place as a genre-saving great? Sadly, no."
