(re: re: re: New Adventure Games?) Maybe that’s why I find myself drawn to mostly Japanese games these days.
The original ‘Clock Tower’ and ‘Clock Tower 2’ (just called ‘Clock Tower’ here in Australia and the US, since they never released the first one there) is a good example of an adventure game combined with suspenseful action. Konami’s ‘Shadow of Memories’, however (on the PS2) is a REAL adventure game (ie. no combat, etc.), but in 3D (even if it is a bit easy). I think ‘Shadow of Memories’, ‘Escape From Monkey Island’ and ‘The Longest Journey’ are the only adventure games I’ve seen released in recent years…
