Critic Reviews for Moebius: Empire Rising

Moebius: Empire Rising is a strikingly mediocre point-and-click adventure game, adequately checking all the boxes of a traditional entry in the genre but excelling at none of them.

Moebius is a great throwback to old-school, point-and-click adventure games, but it has plenty of unexciting puzzles and wasted potential

Ultimately, Moebius' technical glitches and visual blemishes mean nothing. In a stronger game, with good writing and consistent puzzle design, they'd be small distractions. But Moebius' ugliness goes right to its core, with a misogynistic tone, awful main character and poor storytelling.

Moebius: Empire Rising is a short adventure bogged down by dull characters and tedious puzzle solving.

A welcome return for Jane Jensen, and the beginning of a potentially fascinating series with an intriguing protagonist. More, please.

While I had my own ideas about how close Malachi and David should be, and there were some antiquated hang-ups in execution, this is a neat game for fans of Jensen and the genre alike.

Moebius: Empire Rising is a decent adventure game that becomes harder to recommend because of its technical flaws. I can't really tell you if it's a worthy successor to Gabriel Knight, but fans will certainly enjoy the old-school joys of pointing and clicking their way through puzzles and dialogue.

I had high hopes for Moebius: Empire Rising, but while it shows early promise it ultimately falls far short of living up to it. I suspect that Jane Jensen has a good story to tell, but this is definitely not the way to go about it.
