Developer: PaperSeven LTD
Publisher: Vision Games Publishing LTD
Genre: Interactive Story
Blackwood Crossing does a great job with telling a story, but it’s lacking in lustre as a game. The surreal setting, the believable characters, and the plot are all highlights of Blackwood Crossing, and if that is what you’re looking for to wile away a couple of hours, then I recommend it. If you’re focus is purely more on the gameplay side of things, it may be worth waiting for updates to roll out to address issues like movement and fiddly interaction. PaperSeven’s first release shows a studio that has promise in storytelling, but it just needs to fine tune the gaming side a little bit more.
Once you'll have finished the game and switched off your console, you'll remember Blackwood Crossing as one of the most memorable gaming experiences in recent years: in just a few hours, it will summon vivid and palpable feelings; joy and sorrow so touching as to stimulate reflection on the value of brotherly affection.
