Perfect soundtrack, interesting plot, addictive game play
Graphics could have been better
Taking you from dark halls and rooms to the ones in the corporate offices, The Silent Age is a mystery game that clearly packs in all the spookiness and mystery you can expect to keep you going on without getting bored.
The game is a third person role playing (RPG) game where you play as the joe average character. And by joe average, I literally mean the joe average. He’s got it all to certify him as the joe average - an average weight, average intelligence, and average height. Working as an attendant, he makes sure the floors stay squeaky clean as he wants them to be. But suddenly, his life takes a turn when he discovers a (dying) man giving him a time machine, telling him to prevent a tragedy that’s about to occur. I know, sounds cool, right?
Start the game and you’ll be introduced to a hallway where you have to identify and use messages and objects to advance further in the game. Be sure to check out every item, even if they aren’t of any use to you, since they may hold an important clue to progress further or may purely be just fun due to the interesting description provided for each element. It is thus clear that the gameplay is excellent, but I can’t say the same about the cartoon-ish graphics, as they aren’t really what you would expect in such an interesting game.
With that being said, it’s crystal clear that with an exciting gameplay and great sound effects, the silent age is worth trying, even if the graphics are not that great. After all, mankind is in danger, isn’t it?
