Overall Whispers of a Machine is a fun well thought out point and click adventure game. This genre isn't for everyone, but for those who like it, then this is a definite buy.

Whispers of a Machine is aimed mostly at adventure game veterans. It has some minor flaws, but all things considered, it's a well done game with a pleasant art style, thoughtfully designed world and some interesting gameplay features.

Clifftop Games' Whispers of a Machine is a capable, clever, and ambitious adventure game, but still feels like a niche experience lacking wide appeal.

The biggest reason I personally love Whispers is because of its themes. Not only does the game shock players fairly quickly, it then drops a proverbial bomb on them. Players are exposed to themes of creation, technology, religion, terrorism, and relationships. And the way all of these topics are woven into the story is actually quite brilliant. In fact, it is done well enough that I was horrified at the very idea of this game becoming a reality in the future.

A very strong point-and-click mystery title that excels in every area, and where each element subtly complements the short but bittersweet narrative.

True to its name, Whispers of a Machine does exactly that: it whispers. Rather than "shouting," with flashy audio-visuals, cool action, and in-your-face storytelling, it uses the humble, grey-haired Adventure Game Studio, to offer something that's far more subtle in its approach. Clifftop Games creation is a simple, yet stunningly well-written, immersive, and all around fun point-and-click adventure game, with a gripping sci-fi plot, and an unwavering focus in its flawless, detective-style gameplay loop. Currently just a hidden gem, this must-have needs you, fellow adventure fan, to spread the word…

Whispers of a Machine is a puzzling enigma, a fascinating story, and a bit of an ugly beast, but well worth your time.

With a promising premise and great voice acting, Whispers of a Machine starts out on the right foot but is brought down by poor puzzle design and shallow writing.

Whispers Of A Machine is a solid Point & Click adventure underpinned with some intriguing choice mechanics, boasting a solid, if not revelatory plot. Worth seeking out.
