Critic Reviews for Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock

Morningstar doesn't only appreciate your time, but it's easy on the senses too. There are only a few cut-scenes, but all animations and scenes are nicely done, even though clean, abandoned environments have been done to death.

In the end, I enjoyed my time with Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock. Anyone who has history playing these types of games will feel right at home – just don't expect anything really new. The old adage "if it's not broke, don't fix it" applies here – other than the voice acting.

If you're new to adventure games and want a gentle introduction that will leave a strong impression, Morningstar definitely should be among your first choices.

Despite the low score, anyone who loves point-and-click adventures will probably enjoy Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock, even though it's puzzles are way too easy, the main characters slightly more lively than a pack of zombies, and the graphics, sound effects, and music somewhere between dull and average. Unfortunately, due to this quest's disappointingly short length and half-finished storyline, this feels more like the very first chapter of a game, rather than a completed product. It's a nice snack-sized videogame that can fill two hours of total boredom, but, other than that, it's not something special.
