The Journey Down: Chapter Three
Top Critic Average
A worthy addition to the graphic adventure genre; I'll always be happy I played it.
While the episodic nature does it no favors on the Nintendo Switch, I'm glad to have experienced all three chapters of The Journey Down. I look forward to revisiting them again someday.
The Journey Down series is a classic point-and-click adventure which fans of the genre simply must experience. If you haven't played Chapters One and Two, make sure to do so before you play Chapter Three. While shorter and easier than Chapters One and Two, Chapter Three's focus on adventure story-telling is fantastic. With improved graphics, voice acting and cinematic scenes the final chapter of The Journey Down brings an enjoyable and very satisfying gaming experience to close the series.
The Journey Down, overall, started off as an interesting concept and a competent, although not flawless, adventure game in its early moments and then evolved into something more unique and special by Chapter Two, setting expectations high for its conclusion. This entry, Chapter Three, delivers on all of that, while sneakily even taking the story in a slightly different direction than what the cliffhanger at the end of its predecessor could have led gamers to believe, keeping the intrigue levels high all the way up to the end, as it is driven by different, yet equally awesome, aesthetics as its predecessor, and comes with a matching soundtrack and strong voice work to round things up neatly. Fans of the genre will find plenty to enjoy here.
If you've played the first two episodes in the trilogy, then getting the third and last one is pretty much a no-brainer, since you definitely want to experience the end of the series! But if you've yet to try this great looking, funny, entertaining and charming trio of adventure games, I'm here to let you know that you should definitely dive in. Chapter One is $9.99, while Chapter Two and Chapter Three are $19.99 each, but if you haven't bought any of the games you should check out the trilogy bundle which is available at a special price of $39.99, which is like getting the first episode for free.
