True. Anyway, it is refreshing to see that some of the old Lucasarts people involved in developing adventure games are now making a go at it, elsewhere.

Exactly. BTW The chars in a vampyre story will be a cell-shaded 3D on 2D backgrounds. Don't let this throw you off, its still point and click and it has the MI3 style verb coin interface. k:

ive seen magazine slate a game that wasnt terrible, because they had arguments with the game company over previous things (amiga power and team 17 springs to mind) frankly, i dont need to PROVE anything related to my opinion to you or anyone else. if you dont like it, thats not my problem.
Can you give some examples of the Amiga games in question please?

http://www.sq7.org/

Not too sure if sq7 will ever be out...
But...
Sounds promising.
They have part of the staff from previous space quest games working on it.
Hopefully it'll be a blast.

amiga power and amiga format fell out with team17, and they ended up having to buy the games in the shop to review them. needless to say, they got terrible reviews. they gave alien breed 3d about 25% or something. it was a pretty sucky game, but it wasnt THAT bad.
those same magazines gave 'akira' game for amiga about 17%, which was fair, but some other magazines gave the game 80. you could see this disparity for several games, but it was a long time ago and i cant remember that many specific titles.

Amiga Power gave Alien Breed 3D 91%. Alien Breed 3D II: The Killing Grounds received 54% for the 2Mb version, 59% for the 4Mb version and a "mid-60s" score on an accelerated Amiga.

Amiga Format gave Alien Breed 3D 93% and Alien Breed 3D II 96%.

AP continued to give a variety of percentages to Team 17 games after their disagreement - some low (38% for ATR) and some high (91% for Arcade Pool CD32). (And it should be noted that AP used the full percentage score, so 40% in AP would be equivalent to 70% in some other Amiga magazines).
