"As a point-and-click adventure fan with more than a little experience under my belt, I still found Blackwell Deception to be a formidable selection with a memorable cast of characters, locales, and history, even though I hadn’t finished all of the prior games. The insight into Joey’s past was well-appreciated, but I would have liked to see a little bit more of Rosa as well. Crisp graphics, intuitive gameplay, and a well-paced story were the ultimate rewards here. I enjoyed my time with Rosa and Joey, and I surmise you might as well."
