Review: Cate West: The Vanishing Files | GamesAreEvil

GrE writes, "Ever have a guilty pleasure that you know isn't really very good, but you can't help but love? We all do, whether it's a cheesy romantic comedy that we don't want to admit to our mates that we love, or a great fondness for singing along to Barbie Girl. It's fine to have, even though your pretensions may make you wish you didn't. The problem is that when your job is to review a game and that game happens to be a huge guilty pleasure, it becomes very conflicting. You see, when it comes to Cate West: The Vanishing Files, I'm very much of two minds. On the one hand, it's extremely samey and does absolutely nothing to challenge the Wii technologically or the player's physical ability. It's the sort of game that will quickly remind you of the puzzle books your parents used to bribe you with on long car journeys. However, despite its shortcomings, I still greatly enjoyed my experience with this gentle, hidden object based puzzle game. If ever there's an example of a 'marmite' game (a game you either love or hate), this is it!"

I have a feeling that I would not like this game at all.

I like relaxing games like these, make a change from the usual genres

wondroushippo3267d ago

I suppose it's a nice change from games that are all intense action.

Haly3267d ago

No way, not if it's well implemented!

"This really isn’t the sort of game that a hardened FPS player would like"

Hm. Might need to pass. Graphic adventures just aren't quite kill-kill-stab-stabby enough for me.

roblef3267d ago

what, not enough misogyny and hoo-rah jingoism to meet your taste?
