Evidence: The Last Ritual review

  • Different, interesting approach
  • Some truly challenging puzzles
  • Nicely spooky at times
  • No way to contact specific buddies
  • Some puzzles are just stupid
  • Password required every time you start?

And there's more. The game requires you to enter your password every single time you start a new session, which is as flatly stupid as you'd imagine. Also, the discs include large segments of video detailing the European authorities' ongoing investigation and you're supposed to glean clues from these little Quicktimes. However, on at least one occasion a vital clue was all but impossible to make out thanks to sloppy, impenetrable handwriting in the video. And yeah, as with all adventure/puzzle games, while some challenges are pretty clever, an almost equal number are pointlessly inscrutable.

Despite these faults however, Evidence: The Last Ritual is still an interesting ride. Plus, it has to be said that its Se7en -inspired serial killer lunacy is good for a genuine chill or two. It ain't perfect, but it's different and interesting enough to be worth a good look.
