Top Critic Average
One of the best looking point 'n' click adventures ever made, but the unique visuals don't compensate for illogical puzzles and a weak script.
Sci-fi adventure set in ’60s Germany is a beautiful, artsy letdown
Trüberbrook isn’t bad, but it feels like a wedding cake with a couple of tiers missing. Beautiful icing, great craftsmanship on show, but somehow not all there.
Truberbrook is a very average, obsolete adventure, which by all parameters, except graphics, is inferior to the last Leisure Suit Larry game.

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.
With sumptuous hand-crafted visuals and a throwback LucasArts approach to puzzle-adventure gaming, Trüberbook is a treat for genre fans. Well, in part anyway. It's a pity that all the goodwill the game generates is drained by an unsatisfying story that doesn't bother to answer even half of the questions it's raised.
Overall, Trüberbrook is a very special and quirky game that most people are going to love.
If you’re a fan of the genre, appreciate fine artwork and want to experience a fairly interesting story, Trüberbrook is worth a look, just go in with expectations in check.
The handmade game scene is impressive, and the background settings of this game are attractive as well. But the story is not good enough, and the puzzles are lacking of creation and fun.

If you enjoyed the Kings Quest games and similar titles, you will enjoy Trüberbrook. Hands down, this is a surprising slam dunk. It's a great story, with twists, humour, problem solving, adventure and mystery. There is also a choice you make at the end, which I suspect provides two endings, so it's likely to warrant a second play through for this, but you would want to wait a bit between, to appreciate it again.
