Despite the complete curveball the plot gradually throws at you as it moves along, Kathy Rain is a great adventure game with a story that easily gets you hooked and a mystery filled with a grade-A level of challenge to tackle. It may not reach the status of a true classic as the most legendary titles of adventure gaming’s golden age that filled the decade it pays homage to, but it is an incredibly satisfying game all around. “A detective is born” goes the game’s tagline and I wouldn’t mind seeing more of this detective in the future.

Clifftop Games weet met Kathy Rain een volwassen thriller neer te zetten. De invloeden van Twin Peaks zijn overduidelijk en dragen bij aan een meeslepend verhaal. Hoofdpersoon Kathy ontpopt zich als een complex en interessant personage die we graag...

International Review By itc.ua on

Почему-то многие адвенчуры на «народном» движке AGS тяготеют к жанру детективов. Вероятно, потому, что расследование какого-нибудь запутанного дела, не без элементов пиксель-хантинга, более всего подобает проводить в интерьерах, богатых на эти самые...
