Top Critic Average
Truberbrook's handcrafted backdrops are strikingly beautiful, and its delightful to see such craftmanship woven into a video game. When it comes to the rest of the experience, though, there's very little to sing praise about. As a point-and-click adventure, this fails woefully. As a story-driven mystery, it tediously chugs along without offering anything of substance. Die-hard point-and-click gamers might be able to find some signs of life, but for everyone else there's little here to admire beyond the handcrafted environments.
Generally, unless you're incredibly interested in the spectacular visuals, I can't recommend Trüberbrook.
Trüberbrook is visually and musically pleasing adventure game based on a solid idea and interesting story pitch. However story itself is not so good. Plot twists fall flat, dialogues have a lot of problems be that in the way they are written or in the way there are said. Solution of many puzzles is plain stupid and graphical user interface could be better. All of this spoils overall gaming experience. In my humble opinion Trüberbrook might work better as a short movie than a videogame which is kind of sad.

Despite the great presentation, troublesome narrative, disjointed mechanics and the lack of a clearer direction stops Trüberbrook's beauty from dazzling you enough to keep you interested in the game. Maybe next time, studio btf might fix these mistakes and reach the potential that they already clearly have.

Trüberbrook is not a bad game, but with its slow pace, one-dimensional NPCs, overly simplistic gameplay and abrupt ending, its not an easy suggestion.

Unless you're a die-hard point and click aficionado, it's difficult to recommend this adventure. One thing is for certain though: It's not worth its RRP of £24.99.
Trüberbrook offers us a precious adventure that, despite its limited difficulty and a certain narrative awkwardness when interspersing the different chapters that make up the story, will enter our eyes thanks to its overwhelming visual finish and will reach us directly into the heart, where it will connect with that kid inside us who, years ago, wanted to be Fox Mulder

Truberbrook is a truly charming point and click adventure game that gets most things right. The issues that are present are more than outweighed by the brilliant visuals, great audio, and enjoyable cast of characters.
This game has a few sizable issues that hold it back from greatness. But for genre fans, Trüberbrook succeeds thanks to its sci-fi plot, quirky voice-acted characters, and exceptional aesthetics.
The story of Trüberbrook has an intriguing concept. However, it is resolved too quickly and lacks an impactful revelation that it was seemingly building to. Nevertheless, the voice acting and visuals alone have left me so impressed they eventually became the reasons I continued through the adventure.
