Game Title: Caduceus      Reviewer: Mikayla R.

 

Caduceus is everything I wanted--but didn't get. 

 

Gameplay: I'll admit I had my hopes up when I clicked on Caduceus. Maybe they were too high, or perhaps the game is too ambitious. Either way, I was hoping for excellent game play, an adventure, and some sort of way to be a part of this great cause the summary had rallied me to. Unfortunately, what I recieved was a game that wanted me to be as little a part of it as possible. The majority of the game is, in fact, not game play at all. Instead, they are cut scenes delivering all the story and experience you wanted to interact with, while you're expected to be entertained by a lackluster puzzle game of matching germs. Sure, the motivations is good, but that about the only good thing about the game play. There is a reason to interact with the game--great stakes, excellent motivation, even reasonably well-developed characters--but with little opportunity to act on it.

  

Art/Music: This, thankfully, is where I have something good to say about the game. It doesn't redeem the gameplay mistakes, but I was glad some aspects of Caduceus didn't dissappoint, and the beautiful backgrounds certainly did not. The animations on the characters themselves were a bit rough, sometimes stiff, but they had great character and style--something hard to describe but appreciated in its uniqueness. The music, too, was epic, engaging, and soft, though perhaps not memorable.

 

Mainly due to uninspiring gameplay, Caduceus earns itself a 2 out of 5. I really wanted to give it more, but how can you play a game you're not expected to play? Plus with website inconveniances such as ads and email sign-up demands halting your efforts to play, this game ended up being more trouble than it was worth.

 

So, what do you think, GGrs? Agree? Disagree? Was I too hard on it, or am I completely justified? Let us know in the comments below!
